The collaboration is a six-piece lipstick line that features the South Korean characters based on KakaoTalk emoticons. Six shades are included in the collection with Ryan, Apeach, Tube, Con, Muzi, Frodo, Neo and Jay-G on the tubes.

"The Kakao Friends collection makes the perfect gift to spread some love this season," Regan Rabanal, senior manager, makeup artistry, M.A.C., told StyleCaster. "I'm excited to be sending hugs to friends with the 'Here's a Hug' lipstick and showing my appreciation with 'Thanks a Million' for all the care and support from loved ones far away."

Two of the shades, Thanks a Million, a hot pink lipstick inspired by Muzi, and Times Infinity, an hot red Powder Kiss shade inspired by Ryan, will be sold on M.A.C.'s website only, Nordstrom and Macy's.
