Storybook Cosmetics has finally released their highly anticipated Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Storybook Palette – and it’s absolutely been worth the wait.
The collaboration with Roald Dahl Literary Estate, which we wrote about at the start of the year, is the first of many licensed collaborations coming from the popular beauty brand in 2017.
The palette, which features eye shadows named after various characters from the Roald Dahl classic, has gone on sale for $55 (£40.46) today, 15 September, on the Storybook website.
According to Storybook, the muted watercolour palette, which comes in a hardcover storybook style, features 12 ‘Whipple-Scrumptious’ colours, which all come with a subtle chocolate scent.
The palette features cruelty-free, highly pigmented shades that range from mattes, metallics and pearl finish. Apparently, they are long wear and ‘buttery smooth’, consisting of a formula that can be used wet or dry.
Colours include oranges, golden tones, blues and purples – with each shade labelled with a name of either a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory character or signature snack, including: Wonka Bar, Violet Beauregarde (which only fittingly, has been given to the purple shade), Veruca Salt, Augustus Gloop, Golden Ticket, Charlie Bucket, Everlasting Gobstopper, Oompa Loompa, Snozzberries, Mike Teavee, Willy Wonka, and Fizzy Lifting Drink.
Alongside coming in life-size custom storybook fashion, the makeup set also features a full-size mirror surrounded by the words ‘Tremendous things are in store for you’ – and it even comes with its very own golden ticket just to give you the full chocolate factory-winning experience.
The Storybook Cosmetics x Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Storybook Palette can only be found on Storybook’s website – though currently there’s a limited three per order with a 5-10 day shipping estimate.
So your best bet is convincing your friends to buy the palette too, and splitting three ways.
Unless you’re that much of a Wonka fan that you’d like to hoard all three, of course.
