The Colourpop Animal Crossing collection is set to release soon, much to the excitement of Animal Crossing enthusiasts everywhere. For those unaware, Colourpop is a makeup company the bills itself as “Beaty for cool kids. Made in LA” according to their Twitter account. In the past, the company has had several high profile collaborations with large entertainment franchises like their recent Star Wars palette based on Grogu/The Child a.k.a. Baby Yoda.
Colourpop Animal Crossing Collection Revealed
The Colourpop Animal Crossing collection was teased on Colourpop’s Instagram account in what appears to be a now deleted post. Luckily, r/AnimalCrossing user u/aloeviri managed to save the images before they were deleted. As of Jan. 1 (one day after the post was originally made and deleted), there has been no confirmation or statement by Nintendo or Colourpop as to why the post was deleted.
Still, what may have been a leak by Colourpop’s Instagram has fans going crazy. U/groovy_skyy commented “i am SOOOO excited!!! I cant wait to see the color swatches…” Animal Crossing has cultivated a community of players that enjoy expressing themselves through their in-game villages, partnering with a makeup company so players can express themselves outside of the game world is certainly an exciting prospect for the community.
Unless one of the companies involved were to pull the plug on this line just before it launched, expect official confirmation of the Animal Crossing Colourpop collection to come soon. The pictures already show a completed makeup collection, meaning that production is likely finished.
