A few of the all-stars are in contention for their very own capsule collection.

Because it's the holiday season, MAC has given fans a gift in the form of yet another collaboration announcement. Unlike Mariah Carey’s shimmery seasonal lipstick, however, which is in stores now ($17), this one will be a long time in the making. The beauty juggernaut released news that it is partnering with the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund to offer a few outstanding womenswear alumni the chance to create a cosmetics line.

MAC seems poised to take followers through the competition process, as the designers conceive their proposed capsule collections and one is chosen to be produced and sold in stores. This is no fast-fashion collab: The resulting range of cosmetics will not be available until late 2017. That’s right, almost two years from now. Who do you hope makes the cut?
