If you can’t resist the cuteness of Kakao Friends – a.k.a the cartoon emoticons from South Korea’s KakaoTalk mobile messaging app – you’ll be thrilled to know that they’re making an appearance in two separate collections by M.A.C Cosmetics and Origins this month.
The first is the M.A.C Kakao Friends capsule makeup line (a follow to the one last August) that comprises a wide array of lipsticks and a cushion compact. The collection is available at M.A.C Cosmetics stores at Ion Orchard, Takashimaya S.C., Bugis Junction and Nex, as well as at selected counters, sephora.sg and Lazada.
The M.A.C Kakao Friends Lipsticks and Powder Lipsticks feature illustrations of Ryan, Apeach, Neo, Muzi, Frodo and Con.
The lip shades ‘Thanks A Million’, ‘Here’s A Hug’ and ‘Lady Danger’ boast a glossy and luminous finish while the line’s Powder Lipsticks will do the job of giving you a more high-impact look with their more pigmented and matte finishes.
To complete your makeup, turn to the limited-edition Studio Fix Complete Coverage Cushion Compact: it provides a quick beauty fix-it that will leave your skin looking silky with its long-lasting velvet matte finish.
“The Kakao Friends cushion case for the Studio Fix Complete Coverage Cushion Compact makes makeup touch-up not only convenient because of its cushion format, but also cheers me up every time I apply the product,” says Regan Rabanal, Senior Manager of Makeup Artistry for M·A·C Cosmetics APAC region.
Meanwhile, Origins’ best-selling Limited Edition Mega-Mushroom Treatment Lotion – well-loved for boosting skin hydration and relieving visible redness – is getting the Kakao Friends facelift too.
For the collaboration, the product comes in a special packaging featuring the lion character Ryan on plastered on the bottle. The lotion is currently available for pre-sale on Lazada before dropping in Sephora and Origins stores on April 1.
