Few things are as synonymous with being a 90s kid as Nickelodeon. Find me a kid who didn’t scramble home from school on weekday afternoons in order to catch hours of their favorite cartoons, and I’ll find you a kid who either played sports or who basically didn’t watch TV ever.
The network’s now-legendary 90s lineup had pretty much every great cartoon a kid could possibly want to watch (unless you preferred Cartoon Network’s lineup, you do you). Whether it was watching the misadventures of babies on Rugrats, the trials of being an inner-city kid on Hey Arnold!, the bizarrely adult humor of Rocko’s Modern Life, or the wacky jungle antics of The Wild Thornberrys, it had literally something for everyone.
While the network still puts out original content these days (and like a billion different seasons of Spongebob Squarepants and Fairly Odd Parents), it’s hard for those of us who grew up during the network’s heyday to move on, and we often love any reason to return back to our old favorites.
Well, it turns out now we can literally wear our favorite Nickelodeon shows on our faces: the studio has paired up with Hot Topic to make a makeup line inspired by their classic 90s shows, and we absolutely need it.
For starters, the palette looks like a cassette tape, and has all of our old favorite characters across the label. If that doesn’t have any 90s kids already reaching for their wallet, then I don’t know what will.
Open it up though and you’ll find a medley of interesting colors based on the same shows depicted on the label! According to Alternative Press, these include:
“Rawr, named after Reptar from Rugrats, and it’s a vibrant, shimmery green
Football Head, named after Helga’s endearing name for Arnold in Hey Arnold!, is a bold blue
Smashing, an iconic Nigel Thornberry quote, is a shimmer beige
Hi Ho Diggety, Cat Diggety Dog from CatDog, is a striking orange hue”
The palette retails for about $17 on Hot Topic’s website, and it’s already sold out once, so you might wanna grab it ASAP before it disappears for another few decades.
