Hello friends, are you ready to check out the new Crayola Beauty Collection? Let’s do this!
The Crayola Beauty Collection (which is vegan) is actually not a new thing, as one of my Instagram readers recently told me. They actually introduced a makeup line for kids back in the 80’s. But I have a sneaking suspicion this is a much better formula than that was!
The line consists of a variety of makeup goodies from highlighters, to eyeshadows, to mascaras, liners and a makeup pencil case. I REALLY had to hold myself back from ordering everything because the packaging is SO DAMN CUTE!
First is a bright teal green with micro-sparkles.
Second is a light blue with gold shift and micro-sparkles.
Third is a bright blue shimmer.
Fourth is a rose pink shimmer.
Fifth is a purple/mauve shimmer.
First is a silvery/white metallic.
Second is a light rose gold shimmer.
Third is a royal purple shimmer.
Fourth is a light pink with micro-sparkles.
Fifth is a medium grey shimmer.
Macaron Trio consists of a bright sky blue, an intense yellow and a light periwinkle.
Purple Galaxy Trio consists of a silver metallic, pastel lavender and dark royal purple shimmer.
Electric Blue Mascara is your standard electric blue.
Highlighter in Shimmering Blush is a light pink opalescent shimmer.
Ok so there it is! I was actually pleasantly surprised at how most everything swatched and felt. I kind of expected these to feel cheap and just not up to snuff, but most everything was nice.
The eyeshadow palette had just a couple shades that were a little prone to fallout (the first 2 shades swatched and the light pink in second swatch photo) because they have a lot of shimmer. The others though, were very soft and very pigmented and creamy feeling. I wore a couple the other day and they lasted all day over a primer with no creasing.
The crayon trios are awesome! They are VERY creamy and smooth and pigmented (except the royal purple shimmery one, which was a bit patchy.) I wore them as liners and they glided on super smoothly and lasted all day. You can also blend them out to be shadows. The only thing I worry about is that the tip will eventually disappear and even though you can twist them up, it will be hard to get a fine point. But that’s where a brush comes in handy.
The mascara isn’t really anything to write home about. It’s a nice electric blue shade, but I didn’t particularly love the formula and it felt a bit cheap to me. The highlighter is a really pretty shade and looks great on my skin tone, but it’s easily dupe-able at this point because everyone and their mama has 1,000 highlighters out.
And finally, the brushes and brush case. Of course the pencil case is holographic so therefore super cute. The synthetic brushes themselves are adorable also, but not the best quality. I was able to blend out the shadows and crayons with them without much trouble, and no pieces broke or fell off, but they aren’t exactly high-end luxurious.
You can find the Crayola Beauty Collection on the Asos website now.
