Get That Islander Look With ColourPop x Animal Crossing Collab

Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH), the first iteration of the franchise for the Nintendo Switch, was already highly anticipated, but the title exceeded expectations, picking up new fans and lapsed fans along the way. The game debuted to highly positive reviews and provided a much-needed escape from the pandemic-saddled world, offering a cuter, brighter reality where one has a little more control. It was so popular that then-candidate Joe Biden virtually campaigned with in-game items rather than hold superspreader IRL rallies.
Now, the bright and cheery game will come to life in the form of makeup with ColourPop’s first collaboration of 2021. The range includes eye shadow palettes inspired by characters, as Nook, Inc., Isabelle, owl kin Blathers and Celeste, and the Able Sisters. Lip tints and glitter powders also found inspiration in the world of ACNH’s and is a part of the limited-edition range.
The packaging focuses on the adorable game characters-no need to mess with what works-and the characters find themselves set against bright backgrounds with other graphics inspired by the video game.
Save your bells for in-game items, as you’ll need real-world currency to buy this makeup collection. The goods officially drop on January 28th, so get your actual island ready.
