Cartoons, video games and toys that you might remember from your childhood are providing inspiration for new make-up and skincare, just in time for the holidays.
Now on shelves you can find Disney characters like Mickey Mouse, Jasmine from Aladdin and Elsa from Frozen on make-up and mask gift sets, Super Mario Bros. and Lisa Frank motifs on cheek compacts and My Little Pony and Polly Pocket-inspired palettes.
Read on below to shop beauty products that will make you feel like a kid again, because you’re never too old to have fun – especially when it comes to beauty.
Brushes fit for a Disney princess: Luxie Princess Jasmine 6 Piece Brush Set ($95, luxiebeauty.com)
Don’t let this set go: Mally Disney’s Frozen 7-piece Collection in Elsa ($49.98, qvc.com)
Everyone loves Mickey: Disney x Kiehl’s Mix & Mask Minis ($50, kiehls.com)
Disney fans, get your wish lists ready. The brand has collaborated with a handful of beauty brands on gift sets recently and you’re going to want everything.
You’ll be equipped to create a whole new look with Luxie’s six-piece brush set inspired by Aladdin’s Princess Jasmine. The limited edition set is housed in an elegant box that contains a mirror inside and each fluffy, synthetic bristle brush features a gold handle with a regal purple design.
Elsa from Frozen also inspired an enchanting set. Mally created a seven-piece collection fit for an ice queen that includes shadow sticks, mascara, lip gloss, liner and blush in snowflake-printed packaging.
Classic illustrations of Mickey Mouse adorn boxes and tins that house Kiehl’s’ Feeding America line, along with holiday offerings like our must-have, a mini mask set.
From dolls to make-up: Lime Crime Bubblegum Pocket Candy Pressed Powder Palette ($34, ulta.com)
Nineties kids who are nostalgic for their childhoods will go crazy for the newest products from Glamour Dolls’ Lisa Frank collaboration and Lime Crime’s toy-inspired eyeshadow palettes.
After launching rainbow unicorn-printed brushes earlier this year, Glamour Dolls is gearing up to release a matte bronzer and a peachy shimmer eyeshadow in technicolor compacts on Friday, November 10.
While Lime Crime says that it looked to ’90s nostalgia toys’ in general when conceptualizing its new Pocket Candy line, the two plastic palettes’ resemblance to Polly Pocket cases is uncanny. The products even include bright pastel shades like those found inside the toy’s heart-shaped shells.
Make-up magic: Colourpop My Little Pony Palette ($16, colourpop.com)
Game time: Shu Uemura X Super Mario Bros Fresh Cushion Blush in Dreamy Mauve ($39, shuuemura-usa.com)
Fans of both the original My Little Pony series and the animated movie that hit theaters last month will delight over ColourPop’s collection inspired by the whimsical characters, which includes a 12-shade palette. In the palette you’ll find a shade dedicated to all of your favorite ponies like Princess Sparkle (a metallic turquoise) and Skydancer (an icy lavender).
If you were more into video games than magic ponies as a kid, you’ll want to check out Shu Uemura’s Super Mario Bros. holiday collection.
We’re particularly obsessed with a cushion compact blush that features bright pink packaging dotted with red pixelated flowers.
