When we were kids, Crayola products dominated classrooms and playdates and became a staple of our collective childhoods. Everyone knows whoever had the 64 pack of crayons with the built-in sharpener was easily the coolest kid in school. Now, you can relive your younger years with the new Crayola makeup line, via Laughing Squid, created in collaboration with the online fashion and beauty retailer ASOS.
The complete line is 58 pieces, none of which include talc or animal products. It includes eyeshadow palettes, a face palette, a lip palette, mascara, blush, brushes--you know, all of the classic stuff you expect to find in a line of beauty products.
The fun part comes in with the face crayons, which can be used on the eyes, lips, and cheeks and come in dozens of colors. Many of the crayons are the reds, pinks, and nudes you would traditionally see from a makeup line, but some of the colors also include purples, blues, metallics, and even a bright yellow. If you can get over the fact that you’re drawing on your face with what appears to be a straight up crayon, these look like they could be a lot of fun.
Even better, the packaging is the classic yellow and green box we’ve all come to know and love. I’ll be honest, this is not a collaboration I ever expected. But now that it’s here, it’s the makeup I never knew I needed. You can peruse the entire collection at ASOS.
Would you consider trying any of these products? Do you think you could untrain yourself from being told not to draw on yourself with crayons for all of those years? Let us know in the comments!
