UPDATE (July 6, 2017 8:45 a.m. EST): Get your iCal ready — we have a major date for you to mark. Almost two months after giving us a sneaky peek at their upcoming goodies, we finally know when the Too Faced x Kandee Johnson collaboration is launching. You’ll officially be able to shop the new palette, lipsticks, highlighter, and more on September 3 exclusively at Ulta. (Yay, you’ll be able to rack up some points.) Johnson recently announced the news on her Instagram. She teased what her brand-new makeup will look like in stores in a quick teaser video. The accompanying caption is just as adorable as the collection.
“YOU GUYS!!This is a dream come true!!! Look at this sneak peek of the store displays for my (I can’t believe I get to even say “MY”) makeup collection with @toofaced …thank you @jerrodblandino for sending me this! It’s a dream come true!

It seems like we’ve been waiting for the Too Faced x Kandee Johnson collaboration forever, when really it was only January when founder Jerrod Blandino gave his first “sneaky peek.” Since then though, we’ve been dying to get our eyes on the buzzy collection between Too Faced and the makeup artist/YouTuber. We got another taste last week when the duo released photos of the I Want Kandee eye-shadow palette. And now we’ve checked out the entire line — and it’s just as great as expected (and yes, it smells like candy.)
We caught up with Blandino and Johnson while they were in Orlando, Florida, to test out the collection. The two are friends in real life and it’s quite obvious by how they finish each other’s sentences and gush over their joint project. To make the Too Faced x Kandee Johnson collaboration come together, they took Johnson’s makeup wish-list and ideas as a MUA and headed to the Too Faced factory. You can tell they had a blast. “We really want to do good in the world and have fun,” Blandino said. Johnson added: “And make people feel beautiful.”
See the entire sweet-smelling line, below, and shop the I Want Kandee collection September 3 in Ulta stores and ulta.com.
