Magical Girl Style Cosmetics

With my recent post about the official Sailor Moon cosmetics I was inspired to find other cute magical girl inspired cosmetics that are perhaps more accessible than the official items themselves.

The rise of online shops such as Pretty & Cute sell Asian beauty products that have this visual language selling brands such as Etude House and Dolly Wink. This kitsch/cute aesthetic isn’t traditionally used in western cosmetics packaging however I have noticed some cuter packaging being produced. Here are a few Magical Girl style cosmetics:
