In an unexpected collaboration, Kylie Jenner has teamed up with the iconic 1984 slasher film “Nightmare on Elm Street” for a horror-themed cosmetics line, out today. Think red and green knit stripes and a knife hand … but make it sexy.
The collection includes products named after the film, such as the “Freddy Eye Shadow Palette” and “Only a Dream Lacquer,” all in hues and stains inspired by Freddy Krueger’s antics and iconic costume. The line also comes with pre-packaged bundles that put together curated pieces, such as the collection bundle, which comes with all seven products in the collection, and the trio bundle, which includes the cheek jelly stain, eyeshadow palette and lip shine set.
In addition to blood splattered packaging, each product also comes packed in a box made to look like a VHS tape, referencing the way many home viewers likely saw the movie upon its release in the ’80s. The Wes Craven classic, which follows the ghost Krueger as he haunts the dreams of a group of neighboring teenagers, is credited with establishing the slasher genre.
Jenner teased the collection on social media this week, posting a provocative photo of herself on Instagram covered in fake blood, writing that it was a “DREAM to collaborate with the icon of horror.” Jenner also posted sneak peeks of the products on her Instagram stories before the Oct. 12 drop, letting fans in on some of the best pieces from the collection.
