POP QUIZ! What do Rihanna, Rita Ora, and Santigold have in common: (A) They’ve all had long-standing positions on our most frequently played tracks list; (B) They’re all a part of the Roc Nation family; (C) They’ve all collaborated with major cosmetics brands for limited-edition collections; (D) All of the above. Did we stump you? The answer is (D), and if you weren’t aware that Santigold is the latest celeb to roll out her own line of makeup—well, now you know!
Yesterday, Smashbox announced that they’ve teamed up with the sock-designing singer for her first-ever makeup collection: an 11-piece line called The Santigolden Age. Filled with a wide range of bright colors, Smashbox says that the collection “plays with the notion of approaching the post-2012 Golden Age–an age where the earth as we know it ceases to exist, revitalizing itself and morphing into its own beautifully balanced, utopic mirror image. This is a world where the earth, stars, humans, aliens and all co-exist harmoniously.”
Along with eye shadows (there’ll be two sets of five) and eyeliners, Santi’s line will also include a gold lip gloss, nail art sets, and a lipstick ring with Swarovski crystals. SO COOL. Don’t you just love it when fashion meets function? The line ranges from $20 to $49 and will stay true to Santi’s love of mixed patterns and bold color combinations. The eye shadow palette was even designed to resemble snakeskin! Oh, and she also created the collage that covers the compact itself. NBD #artsy. We suggest you start making room on your vanity now–the collection hits stores April 1!
