A New ‘Friends’ Beauty Collab Is Here, and Everything’s Under $20
If you’ve had a lobster-size hole in your heart since Revolution Beauty dropped its first Friends makeup line back in September, you’re in luck, as the brand has just released another collection of products.
Dropping on April 1 (no, this is not an April Fool’s joke), the new collection includes two large eye shadow palettes, three smaller shadow palettes, setting sprays, sponges, sheet masks, and lip kits with shades inspired by Phoebe Buffay, Rachel Green, and Monica Geller.
While the first collection took direct inspiration from the women in the gang, this time the guys are represented as well. Each of the smaller palettes are named after Joey Tribbiani, Ross Geller, and Chandler Bing, and feature what appears to be colors influenced by their apartments. There’s even a blue lip balm that nods to Joey’s iconic appearance in a Japanese “lipstick for men” commercial.
“We looked at each character in detail—what they wear, their mannerisms, the makeup they use, the personalities—and started to build from there,” Revolution Beauty founder Adam Minto told Allure about the first collection. “The products take on the life of each character in a really immersive way.”
It’s clear that the brand put the same amount of thought into this round of products as well. For example, Ross’s palette of sensible neutrals has shade names like Leather Pants, My Sandwich, and Break. Even the sheet masks, named for each character, are decorated with a symbol that represents them.
That’s not all: The collection also includes three different setting sprays inspired by each of the women, a sponge set, and two larger palettes inspired by the whole gang.
If this isn’t enough to tide you over to the Friends reunion, fear not, as there’s still plenty of products from the first collection in stock too.
While the reunion filming was put on hold due to COVID-19, according to the cast, it could be coming to HBO Max sooner than we think. In March 2021, David Schwimmer gave an update: The reunion will start filming “next month,” meaning April 2021, he told Andy Cohen.
Jennifer Aniston previously told Deadline she “chooses to see it as the glass is half full” that filming was postponed. “Look, we’re not going anywhere,” she said. “You’re never going to get rid of Friends, sorry. You’re stuck with us for life, guys.”
