I guess it’s just that time of the year for all the collabs! PUR Cosmetics is launching their collab with Barbie on Thursday, 8.02! This adorable collection includes the Endless Possibilities Palette ($34), Dream Glow Signature Highlighter Palette ($25), Iconic Lips ($18), Girl Gloss ($16), Barbie Doll Lash ($14), Flawless Forever Brush ($26) and finally, the Glitterally Pink Signature Brightening Peel Off Mask ($20).
WOW, I feel like Barbie collabs should be more of a thing! Why are they not more of a thing? I would LOVE to see more Barbie collabs, especially since Barbie was literally my life for so much of my life! Also because ugh, I hate to say it, but this is not my favorite spin on a Barbie themed palette or collection in general. I think Pur likes doing these palettes with tons of pops of vibrant colors and we usually LOVE something like that, but I’m starting to feel like that’s ALL they do… This palette just doesn’t seem much different to me than a ton of other releases from them. And I don’t think it’s like, suuuuuper Barbie, ya know? Am I crazy?? I mean the packaging for sure is all Barbie all day and gets a 10/10 from me, but the color story, I’m not so sure about. I’m also really wondering about these lipsticks! They are super on theme and look HELLA glittery but I can’t tell if it’s as chunky of a glitter as it looks or more smooth? Is it super glittery on the lips or does it not really come off that way? I would be nervous if they came off as chunky as they seem because I’m not sure that would be a very comfortable formula to wear on the lips. The colors are SO Barbie though and, again, the packaging is KILLER. Can we get some other brands on the Barbie train please??
