The ColourPop x Malibu Barbie Collaboration has been unveiled today as being the latest ColourPop launch. I think most of the beauty community were expecting the newest collaboration to be a SpongeBob collaboration from the hints by ColourPop.
So I think they’ve perhaps pushed their SpongeBob collaboration (if there is one) back a little, due to Wet ‘n Wild also launching a SpongeBob collection.
ColourPop have unveiled a few of their latest collections on TikTok recently, and the ColourPop x Malibu Barbie Collaboration was no different.
They originally shared a video of their lab making pink packaging, and gave a hint of ‘get in, we’re going to Malibu’ and everyone was guessing between Malibu Barbie or Mean Girls.
I have to admit, I myself, thought it was going to be Mean Girls, but no, it’s the ColourPop x Malibu Barbie Collaboration in collaboration with Mattel.
Many beauty brands have collaborated with Barbie, and this year alone, we’ve seen Barbie launches from Revlon and also GlamGlow. Whilst it might seem a bit random to many, the demand must be there for more collections to launch.
Proper images of the ColourPop x Malibu Barbie Collaboration will be shared later today, but until then, we have stills from their TikTok reveal video.
As you can probably guess, the whole collection is very pink and girly, and the entire collection launches on the 13th of May at 10am PST, so we don’t have long to wait!
The first product within the collection are the ColourPop x Barbie Doll Lashes, which come in a pretty pink lash box with hearts printed all over the inside. They look very doll-esque, with a wispy style which does look very pretty.
We can see the ColourPop x Malibu Barbie Collaboration includes three different lip kits, each of which contain a lipstick and a lip liner. The lipsticks have really sleek translucent pink packaging, which is different for ColourPop, and Barbie is etched into the bullets of all three shades.
On the caps of the three lipsticks, there’s the white Barbie head logo, and the shades appear to include a nude pink, a bright pink and a deeper pink, but they all appear to be relatively bright – it is a Barbie Malibu collection after all.
The ColourPop Gel Liners all have pink packaging, with coloured tips on the ends of the pencils to show which shade is which.
The product which I predict will be the most popular, after seeing how crazy everyone went for the ColourPop hand mirrors in their Valentine’s Day collection, is the ColourPop x Malibu Barbie Hand Mirror.
The mirror is a pretty pink colour, is heart shaped and appears to have a matte finish. It’s definitely the cutest piece within the collection, and ColourPop really ought to launch mirrors with more of their collabs, as they are so popular.
Next up in the ColourPop x Malibu Barbie Collaboration is the ColourPop x Malibu Barbie Super Shock Highlighter which appears to have a marbled design within the pan. It looks like a really pretty bronzer, and a large compact too.
Would it even be a ColourPop collection without an eyeshadow palette? The ColourPop x Malibu Barbie Eyeshadow Palette contains fifteen shades, which are all bright and colourful, and fitting with Barbie.
Inside the palette, there are square pans which is different for ColourPop, and a couple of the matte shades have little designs embossed into the powders too which looks very cute.
ColourPop will be revealing more information later today, and I’ll update this post once that happens, but the collection is dropping on Thursday at 10am PST right here.
