If you ever thought that make-up and Jurassic World couldn’t live in the same universe, think again.
Essence has launched an entire range dedicated to the film franchise, whose latest movie, Jurassic World Dominion, roared onto screens in June.
So, how do dinosaurs translate to make-up? You’d be forgiven for wondering how a dinosaur pairs in beauty. After all, most of the ancient creatures didn’t exactly scream “beauty icons”, at least until now.
You might be expecting palettes and shades that echo the ancient creatures’ earthy tones. However, the ‘Trend Edition’ by essence has playfully focused on colour schemes that roar boldness, rather than screech bygone earth walker, playing on the film’s settings.
The Jurassic World eyeshadow pallete
The eyeshadow palette features 8 highly-pigmented eyeshadows in perfectly aligned shades. The colour scheme is inspired by the film’s setting on the island of Isla Nublar and offers green, gold, brown and orange shades with matte, shimmering and duo-chrome finishes. Find tiny dinosaur footprints as part of the design, as well as eye-catching dino-inspired patterns.
Jurassic World I LOVE EXTREME limited
crazy volume mascara
As an absolute beauty favourite, the ‘I LOVE EXTREME crazy volume’ mascara is a must-have in this ‘Trend Edition’. The essence bestseller comes in a limited Jurassic World design with shimmering rosé gold packaging and an animalistic detail in the lettering. The performance? Just how we love it! The extra-large plastic brush coats each individual lash with deep black texture for lashes with spectacular volume.
Jurassic World highlighter
Let it shine, as always. The Jurassic World highlighter has a silky-soft texture that delivers a high colour payoff. The delicate shimmer particles in rosé gold conjure up a gorgeous glow on the cheeks and a radiant complexion thanks to vitamin E and macadamia oil ingredients. The pressed powder also has a dinosaur pattern and a playful “Rrrrar!” embossment, just in case we forgot who inspired the shimmer. Together with the Velociraptor on the lid, these details are reminiscent of the blockbuster Jurassic World franchise.
Jurassic World highlighter brush
The perfect partner in crime for the highlighter? The Jurassic World highlighter brush, of course. Thanks to the tapered brush shape, the texture can be applied with precision and the fluffy, soft bristles make it easy to blend the highlighter. The brush comes in a rosé gold design with an orange-pink handle as well as a dinosaur pattern and features the iconic T. rex logo.
Jurassic World ph-reacting lip glow
Complete the look with the Jurassic World ph-reacting lip glow! The texture reacts to the natural pH value of the lips and gives them a soft pink tint with a natural finish. Fine golden shimmer particles also add a soft glow. An additional eye-catcher: the design with a pink dinosaur pattern and a T. rex motif.
Jurassic World makeup sponge
This make-up sponge aptly echoes a dinosaur egg, but with far better make-up application abilities. Its soft texture makes it ideal for the application and blending of liquid or creamy foundation and concealer textures. Thanks to the unique shape, you can either set targeted accents or apply the products generously on larger areas of skin.
Jurassic World powder brush
The Jurassic World powder brush is perfect for the generous application of powder textures. Just like the highlighter brush, it has lovely soft, vegan bristles. The rosé gold design and the handle in a Jurassic World style turn the powder brush into an absolute eye-catcher.
This trend edition is available at Dis-Chem and House of Cosmetics.
