There's A Makeup Palette That Looks Like Our Favorite Crayon Set And We Need It
By far one of the most vivid childhood memories that just about everybody holds onto is coloring with crayons. It's one of those things that apparently becomes inappropriate the second you hit a certain age, but let's get real; who doesn't love crayons?
Did you know that the classic Crayola box that everybody grew up with actually dates back to the early 1900s, when the company Binney & Smith decided to start manufacturing and selling colored crayons? Edwin Binney's wife Alice suggested marketing them under the name "Crayola," which is a combination of the French word craie (chalk), and ola for "oily."
The brand won numerous awards over the next several decades and became what we know it as today. There isn't a kindergarten class in the known universe that doesn't use these bad boys for pretty much the best activities of all time.
Do you wish there was a way for you to capture the glory of using these classic crayons, but maybe in a way that's a little more... personal? Well my friend, have I got news for you: there's a makeup palette based on this classic crayon box. Have your wallet at the ready.
As Bustle reports, The Box of Crayons Eyeshadow Palette by The Crayon Case Cosmetics is "inspired by that box of Crayolas you used while growing up. The collection is specifically designed to add major pops of pigment to your lids."
The "iShadow Palette" comes with 18 colors themed after the classic Crayola box (though it should be noted that Crayola hasn't sponsored this in any way), and while these are definitely a lot more... colorful than most people are probably used to their eyeshadow being, it captures that kid-like spirit perfectly.
You can order your own from the company's website for about $30, which works out to about $1.65 per color. If you really wanna go back to childhood with this in the best possible way, invite your girlfriends over for a slumber party, throw on some cheesy movies, and do each other's makeup in all sorts of crazy color combinations.
