There’s super exciting news in the beauty world, and it’s the Smashbox x The Suicide Squad Collaboration, which is a collaboration between Warner Bros. and Smashbox to celebrate the new movie launching on the 6th of August.
It’s always exciting whenever a beauty brand collaborates with a movie to create a collection, like the MAC x Cruella collection, and keep on reading to find out more…
MAC got a lot of heat for their Cruella collection, and the shades of the products didn’t really fit the Cruella character, but this collection is perfectly executed with really thought out shades to match the different characters within the movie.
As far as licensed beauty collaborations go, the Smashbox x The Suicide Squad Collaboration is quite a small collection, which includes ten products, with just two of the brand’s products; Be Legendary Lipstick and Always On Cream Eyeshadow, with five new shades of each formula.
First up in the Smashbox x The Suicide Squad Collaboration, is the Smashbox x The Suicide Squad Always On Cream Eyeshadows, with five amazing shades featuring themed packaging for all five characters of The Suicide Squad.
“A vegan, cruelty free cream eye shadow infused with primer so it lasts 24 hours. Think rich, comfortable, matte colour that’s easy to apply & blend for a lethal look.“
The Smashbox x The Suicide Squad Always On Cream Eyeshadows have themed boxes, but also the plastic tubes of the eyeshadows also have themed packaging, which I love.
So many beauty brands theme the outer boxes, and neglect the product inside, but Smashbox have done both, and the packaging does look fantastic.
The five characters and shades are;
- Harley Quinn – matte black
- Mongal – matte purple
- Javelin – matte teal blue
- Peacemaker – matte yellow
- Bloodsport – matte warm toned brown
Next up in the Smashbox x The Suicide Squad Collaboration are the Smashbox x The Suicide Squad Be Legendary Anti-Hero Lipstick Collection, with five shades just like the cream eyeshadows, with some of the same characters as the cream eyeshadows, but a few other characters too.
“Go rogue like The Suicide Squad. This peptide-infused cruelty-free lipstick has primer built in. It glides on creamy for rich, pigment-packed color.“
The Smashbox x The Suicide Squad Be Legendary Anti-Hero Lipsticks include the following five shades and characters;
- Ratcatcher 2 – peachy nude
- Harley Quinn – vampy red
- Mongol – deep purple
- Polka Dot Man – bright orange
- Bloodsport – deep warm toned brown
I love that, like the eyeshadows, the lipsticks have themed boxes but also special edition packaging on the lipstick casing too. The shades all look amazing, and I imagine they’ll be super popular amongst The Suicide Squad fans.
It’s also been announced, that later in the year, the brand will be launching the Smashbox x The Suicide Squad Harley Quinn Makeup Kit, which will launch in time for Halloween in October.
