This Tetris makeup collection proves even squares can be fashionable
NYX Professional’s cosmetics line gives a new meaning to colour blocking
If you’ve ever wanted your face to look like a Soviet-era puzzle, you’re in luck.
Popsugar reports that LA-based cosmetics company NYX Professional Makeup is releasing a new collection based on Tetris.
The Tetris Collection offers eyeliners, eye shadows, lip gloss and lip pencils based on the puzzle phenomenon, because nothing says Tetris like “let’s make our eyes green”.
The collection will be limited edition and comes in Tetris-branded packaging which, we have to say, does look brilliant. The eye shadow collection in particular features a large presentation box containing 80 different shades.
The complete list of products is as follows:
- Jumbo Shadow Palette (80 shades) – $45
- Epic Liner Kit (5 eyeliner colours) – $30
- Lip Kit – Angel Food Cake (butter lip gloss and slim lip pencil) – $8
- Lip Kit – A Bit Of Honey (butter lip gloss and slim lip pencil) – $8
This isn’t the first time a cosmetics company has collaborated with a popular video game brand. Back in 2017, Shu Uemura teamed up with Nintendo for a range of beauty products based on Super Mario Bros, and in 2019 Wet n Wild released a ‘shine kit’ based on Pac-Man.
In fact, right this very moment you can buy a load of Animal Crossing themed makeup from ColourPop, including shadow palettes, lip tints, powder blush and glitter gel. We recommend going wild with the eye shadow and drawing big dark circles around your eyes to look like Tom Nook.
So there you have it, your dreams of owning Tetris-themed makeup have finally come true. Just be careful with the eyeliner, because if you draw a complete line it might disappear.
