Santigold is teaming up with beauty brand Smashbox to release her own makeup collection called "Santigolden Age." Smashbox announced the news via Twitter, calling the partnership "the most out-of-this-world gorgeous collection. And don't expect this to be a one-off lipstick shade. The singer is releasing an 11-piece collection filled with eye shadows, lip glosses, eyeliner, nail art and even lipstick rings covered in Swarovski crystals.
"For this exclusive collection, Santigold plays with the notion of approaching the post-2012 Golden Age — an age where the earth as we know it ceases to exist, revitalizing itself and morphing into its own beautifully balanced, utopic mirror image. This is a world where the earth, stars, humans, aliens and all co-exist harmoniously," the press release states.
Not only did Santigold want to create colors that pop, but she also wanted shades that work on darker skin tones like hers.
"It's interesting because [when] they approached me, I had been sort of griping about certain things in makeup I wanted. Like eyeliners that don't come off in a second! Because I sweat — I work it out up there!" she told Vogue.com. "I like makeup that pops, that doesn't look like one thing in the stick and then you put it on and it's the mild version. As a brown-skinned person, there is so much makeup that does not work for me. This collection looks good on all different skin colors, and that was something that was important in designing it."
The "Santigolden Age" will be available April 1.
