We told you a few weeks ago about M.A.C.’s upcoming lipstick collaboration with music superstar Mary J. Blige. Well, it turns out she’s not the only one starring in the Love Me campaign. Six more artists—influencers, models, dancers and singers—are helping the brand roll out a whopping 24 new lipsticks. The campaign is all about self-love and the brand says they chose these individuals because of the way they “embody self-empowerment, joy and zest for life.”

The cream lipsticks are broken up into three color categories with eight shades in each: Shameless Nudes (peach, brown and pink hues); Powerful Reds (crimson, fuchsia, burgundy and wine shades); and High-Impact Purples (orchid, lavender and mauve colors). The moisturizing formula contains lychee fruit extract and argan oil to make lips feel supple, while the “True-Colour Gelled System” lets the ultra-refined pigments disperse into bright, bold color. It’s a comfortable cream lipstick with just a hint of shine.
