BLOGTOBER X BLOGR CHALLENGE 2021 HALLOWEEN COLLECTIONS TO DIE FOR (WEEK 4 – TWENTY-EIGHT)

Halloween is right around the corner and to be honest I’m far too excited for a woman in her 30’s.

One of my favourite things since I started my Instagram and blog has been discovering the outstanding Halloween collections that brands grace us with year after year.

I swear they’re becoming more and more bold (which I’m all for!) and although not necessarily frightening they really do strike the perfect balance between childhood nostalgia and a love of all things spooky.

I’ve rounded up some of my favourites to give you all of Halloween feels in preparation for the big day (or night).

ColourPop x The Nightmare Before Christmas

ColourPop x Hocus Pocus – The Coven Crew Collection

Hipdot x Addams Family

BH Cosmetics Poison Shock

Makeup Revolution x Corpse Bride

WHAT’S THIS? THE MAKEUP REVOLUTION X DISNEY NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS COLLECTION REVIEW (BLOGTOBER – DAY TWELVE)

What’s this? What’s this?

If you’re a fan of The Nightmare Before Christmas (and of course you are, who isn’t?) then you’ll know the time old debate surrounding the seasonal target of the film. Was it made for Halloween or Christmas?

Well director Henry Selick confirmed back in 2017 that it was intended to be a Halloween movie whilst Danny Elfman who beautifully set the tone of the film with his music said that whilst it’s clearly about Christmas he always considered it to be a Halloween film.

I’ll just carry on watching it from October until December every year just to be sure. That seems like the sensible thing to do, right?

That’s right. I am the Pumpkin King!

Anyway, last year Makeup Revolution absolutely smashed it out of the park when they realised a whole collection celebrating the cult classic and and so pleased to be able to say it’s still just as popular a year later!

The whole aesthetic is classic nightmare and I’m living for it. Striking the balance between childhood nostalgia and adult functionality perfectly.

My only regret is picking up only half of the collection but you know, adult stuff comes first apparently 🙄

Just because I cannot see it, doesn’t mean I can’t believe it!

I picked up…

Makeup Revolution Disney Nightmare Before Christmas Eyeshadow Palette Jack – £15

Makeup Revolution Disney Nightmare Before Christmas Highlighter Moonlight, Mischief & Madness – £8

Makeup Revolution Disney Nightmare Before Christmas Lip Gloss Jack £5

Makeup Revolution Disney Nightmare Before Christmas Lip Gloss Zero – £5

The highlighter is beyond stunning and such a wearable shade whilst the palette truly is a Jack of all trades with a nice mixture of neutrals and brights in various finishes.

I’m not much of a gloss fan if I’m honest but the packaging swung me if nothing else and they’re always handy to have.

I excel without ever even trying.

Makeup Revolution Disney Nightmare Before Christmas Makeup Bag Black – £8

Makeup Revolution Disney Nightmare Before Christmas Highlighter Misfit Love – £8

Makeup Revolution Disney Nightmare Before Christmas Lip Gloss Sally – £5
