If you spend your evenings trolling beauty TikTok like me, you could smell this new Twilight ColourPop collection from miles away. And frankly, the 15-year-old inside me cannot be contained. My very first thought about this launch was, “Why TF did they wait so long?” Because it feels like I’ve been waiting since the Volturi came into power. And IDK if it’s because I grew up in the bold glamour era of 2016 but the idea of drenching myself in Cullen-esque diamond skin highlighter is my new Roman Empire
Now, I know there have been a few reviews on TikTok and Instagram but it officially launches today, January 11, and we finallyyy know all the items in the new Colourpop X Twilight collab. And while you can only shop the collection on ColourPop.com right now, you can start shopping it online at Ulta starting January 14 (thank god, I want to use my reward points).

Viral TikToker, Mikayla Nogueira, dropped a hint about the Twilight makeup collection a few days ago and spoke for all of us when she said, “Don’t fuck this up!” because even though 10-year-olds are currently robbing us of Drunk Elephant, they cannot take the magic of being Team Edward or Team Jacob away from us.
Now for the good shit — The collection consists of a cool, moody (à la Bella) eye shadow palette, a shimmery body oil (necessary), three lip oils, two highlighters (!!!), and three metallic liquid eyeliners. I’m personally obsessed with the packaging but slightly disappointed there aren’t more reds in the collection — I mean, half of the story was about how Edward could hardly stand next to Bella because her blood smelled so good?!?! I digress…All that to say, the colors def capture the essence of the first film and are 100% giving Fork, WA vibes.
And while I’m unconditionally and irrevocably in love with this entire collection, I cannot say enough good things about the highlighters. Like I said, maybe it’s because I’m a more-is-more kind of girlie but the payoff of Super Shock Highlighters are beyond — I want my face to look like an entirely glazed and shimmery donut, is that too much to ask?!?! Plus you can use them as an eyeshadow topper or for the hidden highlight trend that’s currently going viral.
Honorable mention goes to the lip oils — even though they come in shades that any non-makeup guru might be afraid to try, the payoff is sheer and easy for a beginner. Lip oils are super trendy right now and even the “Team Edward” navy color feels accessible to any novice.
Overall, I’d say that the collection is 100% worth the hype and TBH, an entire collection with fifteen different eyeshadows, three lip colors, three eyeliners, two highlighters, and a dry body oil for $99 is pretty reasonable. I will definitely be playing makeup and having a moody movie marathon this weekend.
