With October just around the corner, we’re excitedly keeping our eyes peeled for some cool Halloween-themed beauty products set to launch in the next few days. We may not be attending any Halloween parties this year, but there’s still the possibility of virtual gatherings to look forward to coming this 31 October. So until then, these nostalgia-inducing collaborations and cute bath products will help you get in the mood for Halloween.
Colourpop x Hocus Pocus
Fans of the Halloween classic Hocus Pocus (1993) can channel their love for the film with Colourpop's special Hocus Pocus collection. Included in this collection are Halloween-themed beauty products like a jewel-toned eyeshadow palette, glitter eyeshadow pots, creme gel liners, burgundy-hued lipsticks, and fake eyelashes — all of which will make the Sanderson sisters happy. Keep an eye on the Colourpop website for its online launch this 1 October.
It’s perfect for: Sporting wearable looks even after October. These beauty goodies are ideal if you like to play with colourful makeup every now and then but also like the versatility of natural makeup looks… or if you need some help blending in with the humans.
Makeup Revolution x Disney's The Nightmare Before Christmas
Jack Skellington and Sally make their reappearance in a makeup line with the upcoming The Nightmare Before Christmas-inspired collection from Makeup Revolution. Jack and Sally have their own colourful eyeshadow palettes with 36 different shades each. The collection also features two highlighter shades, four lip glosses, a four-piece brush set, and two makeup bags. If you want to get your hands on these Halloween-themed beauty products, Makeup Revolution offers tracked international shipping on their website to Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines.
It’s perfect for: Coming up with colourful makeup looks. The Jack Skellington eyeshadow palette has some bold hues that will make your eyes pop. You can even use the different shades as blush or contour for a hyper-realistic Halloween costume this year.
BH Cosmetics Drop Dead Gorgeous Collection
While not exactly designed based on a specific Halloween theme, the new BH Cosmetics Drop Dead Gorgeous Collection will still get you excited to come up with Halloween makeup looks. You have your choice from the two eyeshadow palettes called Full On Crazy (USD19) and Lil Bit Psycho (USD14) that both highlight the different shades of red — from burgundy to crimson — with some pops of blue and pink for variety. There’s also an all-red brush set to help perfectly execute your fiery looks. The entire collection is now available on the BH Cosmetics website.
It’s perfect for: Creating daring vampy or vampire-inspired looks. Swipe on your go-to deep red lippie and dab some of the Glitter Blood Red Glitter Gel (USD12) for an upgraded look. The reflective glitter flecks will make you stand out from the crowd like Edward Cullen in New Moon, but more artistic in execution, especially if you place the glitter on your face and cheeks.
LUSH Halloween Collection
To cap ofF this list, we can't forget about LUSH — the Queen of Seasonal Collections. Set to launch its annual range of Halloween-themed bath products sometime this week, we will soon see the classic Monster Ball Bath Bomb and Ghost In The Dark Soap in LUSH's physical and virtual shelves. We can guarantee that bath time will be more soothing than those shown in horror films since these cute bath essentials always bring a smile to our faces.
It’s perfect for: Relaxing after a day of hustling hard. Drop your chosen bath bomb into your full bathtub and watch it transform your bath water into a cauldron of pure relaxation.
