If you’ve ever wanted to look like the villain of ‘Nightmare on Elms Street,’ this is your chance.
27 years after the famous slasher flick premiered, Freddy Krueger has returned – but not to haunt your nightmares, but to inspire dreamy, delectable looks, care of Kylie Cosmetics’ odd collaboration with Nightmare on Elms Street for a Halloween-themed cosmetics collection.
The makeup line includes products whose hues and stains are named after the film’s iconic murderer, Freddy Krueger, as well as scenes in the classic horror film. To wit, the limited-edition Pressed Powder Palette contains shades such as “Dream Demon,” “Face Your Fears,” and “Come to Freddy,” while the lip shine lacquer set consists of shades like “Only A Dream,” and “Elm Street,” all delivering a pigmented, high-shine finish. The collection also features a lip and cheek jelly stain whose sole shade is aptly named “Krueger,” as well as false kylashes.
The line also includes pre-packaged bundles that already assembled curated pieces, such as the Collection Bundle ($90; about P4,500), which comes with all seven products in the collection, and the Trio Bundle ($74, about P3,700), which comes with the lip and cheek jelly stain, the lip shine lacquer set, and the pressed powder palette.
The products are all designed to have blood splatters and are shipped inside boxes that resemble VHS cassettes, a clear homage to the way the Wes Craven classic was viewed by avid ‘80s horror fans.
To preview the horror-inspired collection on social media, Jenner posted a series of personal photos wearing a catsuit colored with fake blood and long, silver nails to imitate the infamous villain.
“What a DREAM to collaborate with the icon of horror!” Jenner wrote under an Instagram post.
The entire Nightmare on Elms Street collaboration line is now exclusively available at Kylie Cosmetics.
