Listen Up, Nerds: There’s an Avatar: the Last Airbender Makeup Collection
Once again, Colourpop Cosmetics has created a beauty collection inspired by a beloved TV show: Avatar: the Last Airbender. The brand has launched countless collections full of makeup products based on the mythical worlds and characters in movies and shows such as Nightmare Before Christmas, Powerpuff Girls, and even Lizzie McGuire, so it is fairly well versed in the topic if epic collaborations. The Avatar: the Last Airbender Collection has 13 makeup and skin-care products dedicated to some of your favorite characters including Aang, Katara, and Appa.
Like many Colourpop collections, this one comes with an eye shadow palette. The Avatar: The Last Airbender Pressed Powder Palette ($22) has 12 different shades with matte, shimmery, and duo-chrome finishes. This palette is dedicated to the four elements (earth, water, fire, air), so there is a mix of red, blue, green, and yellow hues in addition to some neutral shades. Each element’s symbol is embossed on four shadows.
Each element is represented by three shades in this palette. There is a matte periwinkle blue shadow aptly named Water Tribe and a matte dark olive shade to represent the earth element called Earth Rumble. We’re sure fans will also love the shimmery red hue called Dancing Dragon and the vibrant scarlet shade named Comet, which are obviously repping the fire element. Air has the matte mustard yellow called Air Temple and a brown hue named Vortex.
There’s more for the eyes. The brand created four metallic So Elemental Crème Gel Liners ($8) inspired by Aang, Zuko, Katara, and Toph. Aang’s eyeliner is a beige named Blown Away. For Zuko, the brand created Fiery Fierce, a burgundy hue. Unsurprisingly, Katara’s shade is in the blue family, specifically a cornflower blue called Making Waves. The last of the four eyeliners is Toph’s reddish-brown Groundbreaker.
The brand didn’t forget the face or lips. For the cheeks, there are two Super Shock Highlighters ($12) called Got Glow and Moon Peach. Got Glow is a champagne hue, and Moon Peach is an orange shade. The Super Shock Highlighters are known for their velvety texture packed full of glitters to give the face a gorgeous glow.
There are also two lip products, specifically Lip Stains ($9) in shade Fanatic and Sealed with a Kiss for those days when you want a glossy lip color packed with pigment. Fanatic is a candy apple red inspired by the Kyoshi Warrior Suki. On the other hand, Sealed with a Kiss is more on the neutral side, a dark peach hue.
This collection also includes three skin-care products from Colourpop Cosmetics’s sister brand, Fourth Ray Beauty. The Water & Earth Face Mask Mini Kit ($22) has two mud masks: Big Detox Mud Mask and Soak It Up Hydrating Mask. The Big Detox Mud Mask is the “earth” part of the kit and is meant to help purify the skin. On the other hand, the Soak It Up Hydrating Mask is packed with hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and vitamin E to hydrate the skin, hence why it’s the “water” half of the kit.
