Two of your favorite beauty brands are teaming up to create one epic gift set just in time for the holidays. That's right, Tracee Ellis Ross's Pattern has partnered with MAC Cosmetics for their first ever co-branded collaboration, and we could not be more excited.

The limited-edition kit, appropriately dubbed "The Holy Grail," includes two products that you most likely already can't live without: Pattern's beloved Leave-In Conditioner and MAC's Retro Matte Lipstick in the iconic shade Ruby Woo. If you're not already a user of either, first off: what are you waiting for? But secondly, now is the time to try them both.

Need some extra convincing? The raved-about Leave-in Conditioner hydrates, defines, and tames frizz and flyaways for curly, coily, or tight-textured hair. And the MAC lipstick — well, that's pretty self-explanatory: everyone needs a staple red lip in their beauty arsenal. And when it comes to lipstick, MAC does not mess around. So if you weren't already sold by now, the leave-in bottle features an adorable limited-edition red lip on the products' signature face design.

If there's anyone you can trust when it comes to your tresses or lipstick, it's Ross: the queen of fabulous hair and a bold lip. She already swears by both products, which is why she paired them together. "My two holy grails in one," Ross said in a press release. "The perfect pout to match your Pattern." Hence the name.

In fact, Ross previously told InStyle in August that conditioning has always been an important part of her routine and was instilled in her by her grandmother, who would actually use a very unconventional product in her hair. "My grandma [would] line all the cousins up outside of the fancy bathroom downstairs at her house [on] conditioning day, and she would lay us on the sink in the bathroom, put our head in the sink, wash our hair, and then fill it with mayonnaise," she said.

"The Holy Grail Kit" is available for $35 on starting today, and in Ulta stores starting Oct. 24 — just in time for holiday shopping (your friends/family will thank you).
