Cosmetics with a Barbie theme are trending once again, thanks to the launch of a new makeup collection by NCLA Beauty.
The LA-based vegan makeup label has teamed up with toy giant Mattel on a nostalgic, 1990s-style 13-piece limited edition collection inspired by the iconic doll, as first reported by women’s website Hello Giggles.
Spanning nail polishes, lipsticks, jelly lip balms and nail wraps, the collection focuses on a fun colour palette of vibrant pastel hues, and bright pink packaging. The products riff on her varied careers, with names such as Ballerina Barbie and Barbie Beach Cruiser.
The nail wraps come in four different bold motifs, ranging from psychedelic prints to tropical designs.
"The NCLA x Barbie collection is everything you've ever dreamed of! Nostalgic of the 90s, this collection pays ode to your favorite icon," states the brand.
"From the prints, to the packaging, to the names, this collection will have you feeling totally Barbie!"
This current launch signals the second major beauty collaboration of 2018, following the release of retailer Sephora's collection back in March.
The Sephora 1980s-themed limited edition makeup kit comprised beauty essentials such as mascara, eyeliner and eyeshadow palettes, each presented in retro-style, cassette tape-inspired packaging. – AFP Relaxnews
