On Thursday, Chipotle announced its branching into the beauty industry. On Mar. 10, the company is officially launching a new makeup collection with elf Cosmetics. The line includes an eyeshadow palette ($16), the hot sauce-inspired Make It Hot Lip Gloss ($8), the Extra Guac Sponge Set ($10) and the Eyes Chips Face Makeup Bag ($18).

In particular, the eyeshadow palette is catching many people’s attention. The 12 color palette is inspired by Chipotle’s food items. From their bright green guac to the dark tones of their pinto and black beans, the palette includes a diverse array of shimmer, satin and matte shades to choose from.

As for the palette’s shade names, Chipotle didn’t overcomplicate things. The shades are literally named after the food items they are inspired by including “hot salsa,” “lettuce” and “guac.” The eyeshadow palette even comes with free chips and guac coupons.

Of course, this makeup collection isn’t the only surprising collaboration from Chipotle recently. Back in December, Chipotle launched the new “Guac Is Extra But So Is Miley” burrito which is based on what Miley Cyrus actually orders from the food chain. Naturally, the internet had a lot of mixed reactions to this collaboration, too.
