Salt-N-Pepa have teamed up with Milani Cosmetics to create a make-up collection.
The Push It singers, who were known for their bold and experimental make-up and asymmetrical haircuts, have collaborated with the indie beauty brand to create a capsule collection inspired by the ’90s, when they were at the height of their fame.
They were involved in every facet of the collection and made sure the shades, textures, and products were authentic reflections of their signature look.
“Make-up has always been a form of self-expression for us,” said Sandra ‘Pepa’ Denton in a statement. “I love to experiment and play with different looks and have been a long-time Milani make-up user. My mother and sisters also use the brand, so this partnership took things full circle.”
“Milani’s message of diversity and inclusivity really resonated with us,” Cheryl ‘Salt’ James added. “It was extremely important for us to create products that represent us and are accessible to our fan base.”
The collection includes a red lip kit named Push It, a nude lip kit named Shoop as well as two circular eyeshadow palettes that are packaged to look like CDs. Hot, Kool and Vicious, named after their 1986 debut album, is comprised of nine matte and three shimmer shades plus an illuminating champagne highlighter, while Very Necessary, named after their record-breaking fourth album, contains more metallic and shimmer shades as well as a golden highlighter. The products come in packaging featuring a throwback photo of the duo wearing their classic eight ball jackets.
The limited-edition Milani x Salt-N-Pepa collection, which ranges in price from $11.99 (£9.30) to $19.99 (£15.50), is available now on ulta.com and milanicosmetics.com, and will be sold at other U.S. retailers in March.
