Crayon brand launches makeup collection

If the colors of your childhood crayon box inspired your current passion for makeup, brace yourself: a famous crayon brand has just unveiled their very own collection of cosmetics.

According to ELLE, Crayola has launched their new Crayola Beauty line exclusively with British retailer ASOS.com, complete with packaging that will take your back to your grammar school days. Adding to the nostalgia of the line are the product names, will ELLE says include all of the familiar Crayola crayon shades, such as “Fuzzy Wuzzy, a dusty rose” and “Tumbleweed, a cool beige.”

The 58-piece collection is also all vegan, reports ELLE, and offers a range of products that include “face crayons, lip and cheek crayons, color-changing lip crayons, highlighters, mascaras, palettes and brushes.”

And, keeping true to its color-centric brand, ELLE says each color is highly pigmented, offering a saturated, bold look — a look that will be easy to achieve when the line boasts 95 shades to choose from.

Adding to the line’s accessibility beyond the number of shades available are two factors: price and intended audience. While pieces from the collection range between $15 and $40, ELLE reports that a press release “notes the collection is gender fluid and the campaign photos reflect that spirit with both men and women wearing the products.”

Relive the Met Gala with new makeup collection

Every day can feel like the Met Gala, thanks to a brand-new makeup collection by Pat McGrath.

According to PopSugar, the famed makeup artist “teamed up with NYC’s Metropolitan Museum of Art (which hosts the event) to launch a line of apparel and makeup inspired by the gala’s theme, ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.'”

The mini-collection includes three pieces, all of which infuse the Met Gala theme in ways both subtle and blatant. For example, the brand’s Lust gloss will now be available in “Aliengelic,” says PopSugar, a “hydrating topcoat that applies like a balm or treatment while giving your pout a three-dimensional shine.”

Also included in the line is a five-pan palette called “Mothership IV: Decadence,” which PopSugar says features colors such as rose gold and turquoise. Finally, the Met Gala-themed collection offers two T-shirt styles, reports PopSugar, the product of a collaboration with the museum that produced a long-sleeve look that showcases a 13th-century statue from the Met Collection and another that features a gold foil Cloisters-inspired crown.

Available both online and at the museum starting May 8, PopSugar says the collection’s gloss sells for $28, while the palette retails for $125 and the long-sleeve T-shirt goes for $82.
