If you were a tween or teen in the late 2000s to the early 2010s, you probably grew up with Twilight starring Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. You would’ve seen the movies at least once too or had your fair share of memes of the films on social media. Fast forward to 2023, the movie turned 15 years old (gosh, we’re old) and many celebrated this milestone. But it seems the party isn’t over as ColourPop Cosmetics just announced a collaboration with the beloved movie franchise!
Twilight x ColourPop: What we know so far
Followers of ColourPop Cosmetics on Instagram recently noticed that the brand has been dropping subtle hints related to Twilight. However, it was hard to confirm anything since the captions didn’t give any more clues as to what was up. However, eagle-eyed fans caught up when ColourPop posted a close-up shot of a model’s lips with dripping red gloss and shared the caption, “We can hardly control ourselves…” The caption, if you were (or still are) a Twihard would know, is a famous line from the movie.
Earlier today, fans’ hunches were confirmed when ColourPop posted a short video of a forest similar to what was seen in the movie and the text, “Twilight x ColourPop”. According to the most recent post, the collaboration will come out on 11 January 2024.
Products that have been revealed
After much anticipation and speculation from fans, ColourPop has finally unveiled the products that are included in their Twilight collection. Based on the brand's post on Instagram, there will be five items in the collection and we called it, they're all glossy and shimmery!
1. Lux Lip Oil Formula
When we saw the teaser photos from ColourPop, we really hoped that a lip product is included. Lo and behold, they came through! There will be three new shades of the hydrating Lux Lip Oil Formula, all named after the movie's protagonists we've grown to love. According to their caption, the new shades are Team Edward (a deep rich blue with silver pinpoints), Bells (a vampy blackened red) and Team Jacob (a sheer black with silver pinpoints).
