Start saving your coins now because ColourPop Cosmetics is about to rock your whole galaxy — especially if you're an anime fan. The popular makeup company just announced a new crossover collection and it's based on one of the most iconic anime characters of all time: Sailor Moon! The collection, which the brand teased with a cute Sailor Moon video on Instagram, includes an eyeshadow palette (called the Pretty Guardian Shadow Palette) featuring mattes and shimmers in shades of pink, purple, peach, and yellow, and apricot blushes. Aside from the palette, ColourPop will also launch some lip duos, retailing for $15 each, featuring the brand's Ultra Glossy lip glosses and Ultra Blotted liquid lipsticks. You can go for Moonlight duo (with shades Sailor Moon and Bun Head) or Daylight (with shades Moon Tiara and Usagi).
The collection will also include two glitter gels for $9 — both perfect for creating your own Sailor Moon makeup look (or Sailor Jupiter, Mars, Neptune or Venus) inspired by the throwback favorite. The packaging features Sailor Moon in all her glory alongside Luna the cat, plus cute golden and silver moons. ColourPop x Sailor Moon makeup will officially be available on ColourPop.com from February 20 at 10 AM PST for a limited time only. If you can't wait to see what the collection looks like IRL, a few beauty YouTubers have already started showing off the shades. "I think this is the most excited I've ever been for a ColourPop collection," said Makeupbytreenz in her video.
From hues like Tuxedo Rose named for Tuxedo Mask's famous flower to the shade Luna for Usagi's (or Serena's) guardian cat, fans will recognize all the references in ColourPop's Sailor Moon palette. Both feature a glossy formula and the brand's unique blotted lip, and all four lippies are inspired specifically by Sailor Moon herself with shades named Bunhead, Moon Tiara, Usagi, and (obviously) Sailor Moon. Two pink-toned blushes in From The Moon and Cat's Eye are reminiscent of Usagi's famous flush, but the best part of these pressed powders is Luna's face emblazoned into the product. There wouldn't a Sailor Moon collection without glitter (Usagi would never approve). Designed for the face and body, ColourPop's Glitter Gels will get two new shades within the Sailor Moon collection: one a liliac tone and the other a soft pink. If you want to shop the Sailor Moon x ColourPop collection, do so quickly. With gurus already hyping up the collection online and its limited edition status, these dreamy products will likely go fast. Sign up for Yahoo Lifestyle Canada's daily newsletter, coming soon! I don't usually stray away from my typical lineup of everyday makeup, but as an anime-lifer, naturally, I find myself geeking over ColourPop Cosmetics' latest crossover collection which is based on one of the most iconic heroines of all time: Sailor Moon. The limited-edition eight-piece collection, which the beauty brand teased with a memorable throwback Sailor Moon clip on Instagram, encapsulates '90s nostalgia, moon prism power and metallic shades that reflect the galaxy (all things I love). Featuring the highly anticipated Pretty Guardian Shadow Palette, an array of matte and shimmering hues purples, peaches and gold, the collection also includes two glossy and blotted lip duos: Moonlight and Daylight, two romantic pressed powder brushes and two glitter gel pigments — all which stay true to the theme of the retro series with packaging that features Sailor Moon in all her glory alongside her cat and sidekick Luna. The ColourPop x Sailor Moon makeup will officially be available on ColourPop.com on Thursday, Feb. 20 at 1 PM EST for a limited time only. I wouldn't snooze on this launch — with beauty influencer hyping up the collection, these dreamy products are bound to go fast.
