Paging makeup lovers everywhere: Your boring Tuesday just got a lot more exciting and — dare we say — kinda’ sexy? Urban Decay just announced on Insta that a brand-new, seductive makeup collection is coming. Inspired by a love drug that’ll bring you all sorts of pleasure (in the form of fire eyeshadow lewks and glossy, plump lips) the Aphrodisiac Collection includes a new eyeshadow palette with six shades and three new shades of everyone’s favorite Hi-Fi Shine Lip Gloss.

Keep reading to get a glance at the entire Urban Decay Aphrodisiac Collection:

Aphrodisiac Eyeshadow Palette

This on-trend mini palette is made up of three mattes and three shimmers meant to help you create a variety of eye makeup looks, ranging from a simple sweep or color for the day time or your most seductive, I’m-feelin’-myself night-out looks. Its compact size makes it ideal for storing in your bag when you’re on the go, or simply for leaving some extra space in your already overflowing makeup bag. Still not convinced? We got our hands on it early — check out our Aphrodisiac palette swatches here.

Three New Shades of Hi-Fi Gloss

Hi-Fi Lip Gloss is a staple in our collection. To add to the hype, Urban Decay just released three new shades, which include a minimalist sheer shade with a pink/teal holographic effect named Aphrodisiac, a deep fuchsia with blue and pink sparkles named Tongue Tied for all you maximalists and a sheer lavender with iridescent glitter named Ghosted that’s perfect for the in-between.

And if you’re looking for the perfect eyeliner to wear with your new shadow, the brand recommends Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner Shades in Zero (an intense black) or Rockstar (a dark eggplant shimmer) to complete the look. The two bestselling shades might already live in your makeup bag, so we encourage you to dig them up in anticipation for the new palette, ASAP.

Thankfully, the wait for the Aphrodisiac Collection won’t be long! It’s an Ulta exclusive that will be available for purchase starting August 5, and if you have an impressive amount of self-control, you can wait to find it in Urban Decay stores as well as online starting August 27. We don’t know about you, but we’re already feelin’ a lil’ love drunk.
