Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be any new twists when it comes to makeup, a famous candy company comes up with something super-sweet and unexpected. Reese’s (yes, the peanut butter and chocolate confectioners, not the actress Reese Witherspoon) has teamed up with HipDot Cosmetics to make our faces at least look delicious.
Believe it or not, this isn’t the first such collaboration. Quite a few food brands are taking a bite out of the beauty space. Peeps marshmallow treats recently teamed up with HipDot for a sunny collection of eyeshadows and makeup sponges, and Chipotle partnered with e.l.f. Cosmetics to launch an eyeshadow palette and Make it Hot lip gloss. There’s even a line for fans of Tapatio hot sauce!
But if you’re one of the many who just can never get enough peanut butter and chocolate in any form (and we hear you), we’ve got the skinny on everything you should know about the new Reese’s makeup line.
