2016 may have been a hard year on some fronts, but when it came to makeup – these 365 days have been on point! Apart from the launch of several new products, the industry had some of the best collaborations we’ve ever seen. Need proof? Check out the list below.
1. Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder
Let’s start with the poshest (pun intended) collaboration. The fashionista’s venture with Estée Lauder resulted in a mesmerising array of products including a jewel-toned eye palette and a tangy orange-red lipstick.
2. Too Faced x Kat Von D
What’s better than a celebrity collaborating with a brand? Two beauty powerhouses coming together! Aptly called ‘Better Together’, this collection is a perfect mishmash of Kat Von D’s edgy style and Too Faced’s soft hues.
3. Hello Kitty x Colour Pop
Lipsticks, blushes, highlighters, eye shadows… this range has it all! Plus, the packaging is too cute to handle.
4. Kerry Washington x OPI
The leading lady of Scandal got together with OPI to create the moodiest nail paints of all time. Our favourite of the lot is ‘Kerry Blossom’, which is a gorgeous, deep plum.
5. beautyblender x Benefit Cosmetics
Designed to make you look flawless, this kit comprises of the iconic pink sponge, a blotterazzi compact and Benefit’s blurring primer. What else do you really need?
6. Mariah Carey x MAC Cosmetics
This was one of the most awaited launches of the year. True to the songstress’ style, the collection features several luxuriously packaged products including a line of neutral lipsticks and an engraved highlighter.
7. Khloe Kardashian x Kylie Cosmetics
What happens when two of the most famous reality stars (who also happen to be sisters) team up? Pure magic. The Koko Collection features 4 glamorous, gold tubes which include 3 matte lipsticks and a gloss.
