Animal Crossing: New Horizons x ColourPop Makeup Look

I recently bought the full Animal Crossing: New Horizons makeup collection from ColourPop, and I wanted to share a makeup look using as many products as possible. I will have a review up next week of all the items in the collection if you are interested in purchasing anything from the collection!

The Makeup Look

To begin with, I started with my eye look. First I applied the Urban Decay Primer Potion then I moved onto my eyeshadow. There are 4 palettes in the collection with 4 shades each so I decided to use the Labelle of the Ball palette on one eye (the purple side) and the 5 Star Island palette (the pink side) on the other eye. Both are cute palettes, but I did have some issues with fallout and pigment. Since there is also the single Ballon Pop Super Shock Shadow, which is a peachy shade, I decided to use it as a topper for the purple side. I tried using the Bellionaire Glitter Gel as a topper for the pink side, but the glitter is so chunky and it did not look good, and I ended up wiping off the pink eyeshadow and redoing it. I am not sure how to use the glitter gel and make it look good, so I did not use it in the final look. To finish my eye look, I used The Body Shop Mascara. I have used the mascara several times now, and it is nice for a more natural look, but it is not my favorite mascara.

Next I moved onto my face makeup. Since I was not planning on wearing the makeup look for that long, I skipped primer and went straight into using the Tarte Face Tape Foundation and the Tarte Creaseless Concealer under my eyes. Both are nice products, but as I mentioned before in other makeup looks, the Tarte concealer is best for under the eyes and not so much the face while the foundation is a little too light. Next I used the Danessa Myricks setting powder since I did use a liquid foundation. From there, I decided which blush from the ColourPop collection to use. There are 2 blushes in the collection, and I used the Flower Power blush as I thought the pink blush would go better with the purple and pink eyeshadow than the coral blush. The blush is a pretty pink shade, but it is not different from all the other pink blushes out there. I then used the NYX Powder Foundation since the Tarte foundation was a bit too light. Since there is not a highlighter in the collection, I skipped using a higlihgter and moved onto my lips.

For the lips, there are 6 lip tints in the collection that range from browns to reds. Each of the lip tints is based on one of the fruit trees in Animal Crossing (apple, cherry, coconut, pear, peach, and orange). The lip tints do smell like the fruit which is a fun touch. Since I had a pink and purple eye look and pink blush, I figured the Orange Cutie shade would look the best since it is a reddish shade. The lip tint is more on the sheer side, but I think it looks nice. That is it for my makeup look!

  1. You know it we love Animal Crossing at The Grumpy Olive, so it’s only fair we want to buy the whole collection already! But after seeing you use it…we want it even more! It has beautiful packaging and the colours on your eyes are beautiful Karalee x

    1. I LOVE Animal Crossing & my daughters does too! She claimed the Nook Inc (green) palette which is why I went with the purple & pink palettes instead haha
      Thank you so much! 🥰


  2. I don’t play Animal Crossing! I tried it once on my phone but I couldn’t get into it! I’d like to try again though. This is a lovely make up look. I love these fun collaborations between make up brands and other things!

    1. I’ve played Pocket Camp some but I eventually stopped. I much prefer the console games like New Horizons!
      Thank you so much & I love seeing the collaborations too! I know Wet n Wild recently collabed with Spongebob & Revolution has their Disney collabs!


  3. That’s a great look! I love Animal Crossing, and I think some of the product tie-ins are really fun. Makeup inspired by a video game is an interesting idea.

  4. When I was younger, in high school, I loved playing Animal Crossing together with my sister. I created a villa, full of objects and details, it was beautiful. Then growing up I stopped playing, even if I always have a super pleasant memory of it. I didn’t know about this makeup collection. I usually use Pixi’s, but this looks nice 🙂

    1. Aw that’s sweet you used to playing Animal Crossing with your sister! New Horizons is a great game & they changed so much from the previous games like you’re now able to decorate the whole island & terraform it!
      I haven’t bought any makeup from Pixi in forever!


  5. I love Animal Crossing – this is a really cool look. It’s really a great look for spring/summer so perfect timing! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  6. I love Animal Crossing and I love this collection! I picked up What a Hoot and Flower Power on the launch date. The eyeshadow is extremely pigmented! It’s so hard for me to get subtle looks, even though it’s a neutral palette. Great review, I’m glad you liked it!

    1. Thank you so much! I started playing Animal Crossing when New Leaf came out, but I haven’t played any older ones. I definitely recommend New Horizons!


    1. Thank you! Animal crossing is definitely a fun game & I’m glad I bought my Switch when I did as I spent MANY hours playing during lockdown


  7. Love the look Karalee! Totally in love with the shade of the lipstick too and the packaging of the ColourPop collection is amazing! Honestly, I am an avid player of Animal Crossing since elementary school when I got it on my DS and was so glad when it came out on Switch! x
