Hatsune Miku Beauty Range Released in Collaboration with Fairy Tale Cosmetics
Fairy-tale themed cosmetic brand Fairy Tale Cosmetics has joined hands with virtual idol Hatsune Miku to release a range of original beauty products. Village Vanguard are now taking orders for the cosmetic line via their online store.
The lineup is inspired by Hatsune Miku falling into Wonderland. It includes three different eyeshadows packaged in gorgeous antique-looking books, three varieties of blush that comes stored in pocket watches, three types of lip gloss, and three sets that include one of each item plus bonus items.
Antique Book Eyeshadow
The eyeshadow range comes stored in high quality antique-looking books, the kind you would imagine in an old library. Each palette offers an alluring gaze that can cater to whichever situation you need it to.
Pocket Watch Blush
The pocket watch blush is a handy item that can be carried around as a charm. Pick from your favourite colour of either red, rose or pink.
Small Bottle Lip Gloss
This bottle type lip gloss is high quality in both application and colour and is easy to use. The colouring gives subtle tint that your lips will easily become familiar with. The colour selection also allows for use in a variety of situations.
Each set comes with one of each eyeshadow, blush and lip gloss as well as a reversable pouch, card mirror, and masking tape. The pouch has double pockets so you can store numerous small accessories or makeup bits, and since it’s reversable you can pick from two different designs depending on how you’re feeling.
Have fun with this antique collection of cosmetic items.
