Can you believe it's been forty years since Grease was released? Mind blown. (Also, anyone else feeling their age right about now?) That movie rocked my childhood. I could count on my fingers and toes, and then all the BR crew's fingers and toes, how many times I watched it. I will never forget that moment at the end of Grease where Sandy has had her makeover and reveals her new look to Danny. That curled blonde hair, the ruby lips, the leather jacket lined in red, shoulder revealing top and skintight pants, the hoop earrings... Girl Crush alert! Heck, what am I saying... that movie is a long line of Girl Crush alert after Girl Crush alert. Frenchy's hair. Rizzo's attitude. Marty's face. Jan's love of food - I think she's my secret soul mate.
So it was with great delight that I saw a couple of cosmetic companies getting on board the Grease-car-to-heaven and bringing out treats for us to enjoy!
So what's the one that we want? (Ooh, ooh, ooh, honey.) Check these out!
OPI have released #OPIxGrease, a limited edition of 12 shades shades in Nail Lacquer, Infinite Shine and GelColor, alongside three new special effect nail lacquers. The shades are sweet, summery and sassy! And have a cool retro touch. Also? The names! 'Teal Me More, Teal Me More.' ' 'Pink Ladies Rules the School'. 'You're the Shade That I Want'. And my personal favourite... 'Tell Me About It Stud.'
Best of all? They're available now for us gals in New Zealand!
The other company on board the Grease-car-to-heaven train is a new brand to catch our eye, Sola Look.
Sola Look are based in the states and relatively new to the cosmetic market, having been launched in 2013, but they've quickly grown a following thanks to their cool releases, like the Saved By The Bell Liquid Lipstick Trio, their Dirty Dancing Palette, and their Flashdance palette (HOW DID I MISS THIS!?). With their love of all things old school it's no wonder they're set to bring out this...
That's right! A Pink Ladies eyeshadow palette! would you look at those shades! That pink! And much like the OPI range we are LOVING the name of the shades. Just reading them we can picture the scene they come from, the person who said them, the tone of voice they're said in, the song they relate to. Take our money. We want these on our lids. (And if you're keen to buy you can await the release of the palette here.)
