They are “back and more glorious than ever.”
The adaptation of the 1993 fantasy comedy-horror, Hocus Pocus, is set to grace the big screen on September 30.
To pay homage to the iconic three witches, ColourPop has tapped the magical world of Salem for a wickedly good makeup set, just in time for the upcoming Halloween season.
The Los Angeles-based cosmetics brand is known for incorporating various pop culture references into its products. The brand recently had Potterheads screaming over its Harry Potter collection, adding to the number of movie-inspired lines it has produced over recent years. In addition, it includes High School Musical, Star Wars, Frozen, Bambi, and many more movie-themed movies that are also nostalgia-infused.
So, over the Hocus Pocus adaptation announcement, ColourPop has brewed something for the fans and has ventured into a nostalgia-filled market again. The Hocus Pocus collection includes ColourPop staples with some new releases made just for the iconic film’s partnership.
The Sanderson sisters, of course, took center stage in ColourPop’s Jelly Much shadow in three shades designed after Winifred, Sarah, and Mary. So, whoever you’re pulling off, the cosmetics brand got you covered with a dual chrome glittery high-impact finish that the three shades are serving. In addition, it has color-popping orange-red, purple, and white shades called Shish-Ka-Baby, Come to Play, and I am Calm.
The So Glass Lip Glosses offer three new shades, along with other ColourPop staples in black, peach, and clear, which are also in line with the black magic color palette. The SOL Shimmering Body Powder gets a 17th-century Salem-inspired makeover with a green and gold two-color finish.
Of course, setting aside the other shades in the color wheel, the Hocus Pocus aesthetic is complete with a splash of purple. So ColourPop’s BFF Mascara also got an update with a Hocus Pocus 2 x ColourPop exclusive Billy Butcherson-themed, purple-colored mascara for a dark plum purple tinted lash. Thackery Binx also made an appearance through the Give Him Fur Cat Ears head accessory, perfect for vanity purposes and last-minute Halloween costume ideas.
Lastly, and certainly not the least witchiest of them all, the All Hallows Eve pressed shadow palette features 15-pan mystical shades with pigmented and bright colors, including matte sparkle, metallic, and matte. It also has a new ultra-fine finish shadow in pearlescent glitter for a bewitching stand-out look.
“You asked, we listened! ???? get the witchiest looks with 15 marvelous shades of our ultra-pigmented, blendable pressed powders ???????????? PLUS a shade of our NEW pearlescent glitter formula,” the brand’s Instagram caption read.
Not only is ColourPop known for quality items, but the brand also offers affordable makeup sets. You can snag the So Glassy Lip Glosses for only $9. The Jelly Much eyeshadows, Butcherson BFF Mascara, and Give Him Fur Cat Ears retail for $10.
On the other hand, the SOL Shimmering Body Powder is $15. The most spellbinding from the line, the All Hallows Eve, comes with a $24 retail price. Finally, you can grab the whole Hocus Pocus 2 x ColourPop limited collection for $99.
The highly-anticipated Hocus Pocus sequel premieres on Disney+ this September 30.
