Iconic makeup brand Shu Uemura and a pair of hot young designers linked up for a metallic dream of a makeup collection, and the result is seriously badass.

Shu Uemura’s collaboration with cult Tokyo fashion line Ambush is a perfectly offbeat blend of edgy and classic. Shu x Ambush is (literally) a little more heavy metal than some of the makeup company’s cute collabs of the recent past.

The spring/summer 2017 collection is inspired by Ambush designers Yoon and Verbal’s statement-making, rock’n’roll-meets-street-style jewelry. The catchphrase and philosophy behind the collab is “stay gold.” Metallic monochrome is a super hot makeup look, and the two Japanese brands are doin’ it well!

All gold everything.

In a press release, Shu Uemura’s international artistic director Uchiide said,

We can definitely get behind that.

Let’s take a look at a few products from the collection, shall we?

Eye Foil in Amb Dreamcatchers, $32
