This holiday season expect to find a somewhat unexpected collab under your tree: Better Together is the “ultimate collaboration and a labor of love” between two of beauty’s biggest names: Kat Von D and Too Faced cofounder Jerrod Blandino. The two labels, which just so happen to call Southern California home (Von D is based in Los Angeles, Too Faced’s pink home base is in Orange County), are coming together for a one-of-a-kind collab just in time for the holidays.

While it may seem strange that two beauty labels are working together, Von D and Blandino have been friends for years.

“The very first time I met Kat Von D, I knew I had made a friend for life. She was a classic beauty with a retro-modern femininity made only that much more spectacular by her artful tattoos. She was incredibly approachable, sweet, funny, and smart with an unexpected innocence that made me want to wrap my arms around her and protect her from the world. Kat is one of the most authentically kind, caring, sweet, loving, artistic, passionate and loyal people I have ever known; I feel incredibly blessed to have Kat in my life and in my corner,” Blandino said. “We aren’t competitors, but cheerleaders for each other, celebrating the others successes and triumphs while offering each other a safe place to land when things get tough. In our industry of beauty it’s incredibly rare to have a fellow founder befriend you, especially one your company is compared to. This makes our friendship that much more unique and precious. I am happy to finally be able to share our love for each other and what we do with the world!”

So while there probably isn’t a lot of crossover competition between the lines, beauty obsessives know that performance is what comes first, not marketing and packaging — though those two factors definitely help. The Better Together collection brings together Too Faced’s candy-pink wonderland and Kat Von D beauty’s gothic romance. The result? An amazing juxtaposition that has just about everyone swooning.

“There are few people in the world that I have been lucky enough to meet who make me feel like I belong. Jerrod is one of them. He’s my friend, my muse, and an excellent example of what a real hero is made up of,” said Von D. “To me, this collaboration represents something much bigger than lipstick and eye shadow. This is a love letter that we have created together—dedicated to all of you—in hopes that it inspires love, kindness, and compassion. Because together, we are truly better.”

The Better Together Eye Palette includes six Too Faced eyeshadows, six Kat Von D eyeshadows, a full-size Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and a full-size Kat Von D Tattoo Liner. Two additional sets include a cheek and lip makeup bag set featuring minis from both lines in a two-sided collectible bag starring Kat and Jerrod’s cat and dog, Piaf and Clover; and a best-selling mascara and liner kit featuring deluxe sized Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and Kat Von D Tattoo Liner.

The whole kit and caboodle is set to hit stores in December, so make sure Santa knows it’s on your list — these kits are sure to sell out in no time.
