Storybook Cosmetics, the brilliant beauty brand behind the likes of the Mean Girls Burn Book makeup brushes and the Harry Potter Quill Eyeliner, has just announced that they will be releasing a Care Bears collection.
Storybook is collaborating with American Greetings Entertainment, the company built upon the successful re-launch of Care Bears, to bring us a range of beauty products inspired by the beloved bears.
According to the brand, the Storybook Cosmetics x Care Bears collab will be the first to feature multiple products in the collection such as pressed pigments, lipstick and a rainbow highlighter.
While we’re not sure as of yet whether all the Care Bears will be featured in the collection, we do know that there will be a baby pink lipstick inspired by Cheer Bear, a Wish Bear baby blue and also a purple taken from Surprise Bear.
Obviously, we’re hoping for an orange Friend Bear lipstick and a red one inspired by Laugh-A-Lot but we’ll have to wait and see what Storybook has in store for us.
The announcement for the new collection comes just days before the Care Bears’ annual holiday, Share Your Care Day on 9 September, which aims to inspire acts of kindness, big and small – and so in celebration of this, Storybook is holding a giveaway, where all fans need to do is share a selfie on Instagram alongside the tags @CareBears, @StoryBookCosmetics and the hashtag #ShareYourCare.
They’ll then pick one winner on 9 September – though unfortunately, as the collection isn’t coming out until 2018, you won’t be receiving a rainbow highlighter or the likes.
You will, however, win a limited edition Rainbow Heart Care Bear as well as a number of popular Storybook products, such as the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory makeup palette and the incredibly popular Harry Potter Quill Eyeliner.
Which, obviously, we’re just as happy with.
Missy Maynar, co-creator of Storybook Cosmetics, said that the inspiration for the collection came from Care Bears being such an ‘influential part’ of her childhood – and now in her adulthood – as she feels she can ‘still use the valuable lessons those lovable bears’ taught her and her two sisters, Erin and Mandy, who also co-created the brand.
Missy said: ‘Partnering with Care Bears was an obvious choice for Storybook Cosmetics since our brand is about combining the stories that have left a mark on us with our love of makeup.
‘The opportunity to transform the incredible colour palette of the Care Bears into cosmetics, all while spreading their message of love, has us overjoyed! We can’t wait to share more as we move forward with the collection!’
Nora Wong, VP Domestic Licensing for American Greetings Entertainment added: ‘Storybook Cosmetics and Care Bears is a special collaboration that will be a magical collection of cosmetics celebrating the full spectrum of Care Bears colors with a message of love and caring for others.’
The Storybook Cosmetics x Care Bears collaboration is slated for 2018.
