First the clothes, then the fragrances, and now the makeup. The word is Marc Jacobs will soon be putting his name on a color cosmetics collection that will find the designer breaking new ground for his illustrious brand.

WWD reported Tuesday that Jacobs will be hooking up with cosmetics retailer Sephora for the new line. "I see makeup, fragrance—everything, really—as an opportunity," he said. "The idea of choosing a color for your lip, or an eyeliner—it's just such a delight. The ritual of waking up and making those choices is something people really enjoy."

Jacobs won't be the first designer to launch a cosmetics collection. Tom Ford, Dolce & Gabanna and Giorgio Armani all currently have makeup lines while many other designers have partnered with companies like MAC or OPI and Zoya to create special collections.

Since Jacobs' collaboration with Sephora has only just begun there's no word yet on when we can expect to see the products in stores. Right now we can only speculate on what's to come, but based on Jacobs' thoughts on fashion, we can't wait to see what he comes up with: "It's not necessary, it's something you want—it's a fancy and a whim."
