To all my fellow Care Bears lovers out there, the day has finally come when the beloved rainbow bear bunch has decided to come out with a skin-care and makeup collection. Care Bears has officially partnered with Wet n Wild to unleash the limited-edition Care Bears x Wet n Wild Collection that is just as bright and playful as their home of Care-a-Lot.
Beginning with the makeup side of this collaboration, the lineup consists of a powder highlighter, two glitter gels for face and body, a decorative gem face mask, four lip glosses, a colorful eye and face palette, press-on nails, two sets of false eyelashes, a bronzer, and a blush. Sound like a handful? There’s more. The makeup roster also includes an eyelash curler and mascara set, a primer, a setting spray, a pack of five beauty sponges, a color-changing makeup sponge, and a set of two makeup brushes.
In order to make things a little easier for you, dear reader, we broke down all the products that are part of this collaboration according to their respective categories.
To get that glow on, Care Bears has you covered with pretty much all the things. Set the stage for a bright complexion with the Brighten Your Day Primer Serum ($9). The serum contains a blend of sunflower oil, vitamin C, and niacinamide.
Another product from the collection, The Let Your Light Shine Highlighter ($6), also claims to “give skin a radiant glow.” Meanwhile, the Live, Laugh, Hug Bronzer ($6) is said to “instantly warm both your complexion and your heart” — just like the bears themselves. You can also add a touch of rosy color to your face with the Do What You Love Blush ($6). Last but not least on all things glow, the Caring Counts Eye and Face Palette ($17) allows you to take your radiant glow to the next level with its eclectic array of pigments that are designed to amplify both the eyes and face.
Be sure to lock-in that beat with an extra layer of glow by turning to the Get Through The Night Setting Spray ($9). Niacinamide, the star ingredient of this spray, “can help to strengthen the skin barrier, thus making other ingredients easier to tolerate,” board-certified dermatologist, Marisa Garshick, MD, previously told pace.
Eyes will also be given the glam treatment that they rightfully deserve with false eyelashes in two styles: My Lucky Day (pictured above) and Wish Big! ($6 each). The eye makeup lineup also includes the Friendship Goals Eyelash Curler and Mascara Set ($9).
For special occasions, the collection has a few accessories to choose from, such as the Think Happy Thoughts and Good Vibes Only Artificial Nails ($6 each), the Cheer You Up Gem Face Mask ($6), and the Stand Out and Shine! and Free To Shine Glitter Gels ($6 each). The glitter gels are not just limited to the face — they can be added to the body for a hint of shimmer as well. These gels will only be available at Ulta.
Don’t forget to tie the whole look together with one of the line’s Shimmer Lipglosses ($6 each): Free Hugs (cherry red), Spread the Love (bright fuschia), Share a Smile (a sparkly frosty pink), and Sing Out Loud (a traditional, shimmering clear gloss). These glosses also tap into the olfactory experience with their “sweet, sugary scent,” according to the brand.
A full face of makeup can’t be done without some trusty makeup tools, which is why the brand came up with the Sharing Is Caring Two-Piece Dual-Ended Brush Set ($17), the Always Care-A-Lot Color-Changing Makeup Sponge ($6), and the Care Package Five-Piece Makeup Sponge Set ($17).
Now, onto skin-care. Like its makeup roster, the selection of skin-care products in this collaboration is anything but underwhelming. It features a cleansing balm, one face mist, a lip scrub, a lip mask, and a lip care kit.
Starting off with the facial cleanser, the Resting Bear Face Cleansing Balm ($9) has all your end-of-the-day makeup cleansing needs top of mind. Its “buttery texture” is meant to “melt away makeup and impurities, leaving skin clean and soft after rinsing.” On the other hand, the Pick Me Up Hydrating Face Mist ($9) satisfies all of your skin’s thirst-quenching desires.
This skin-care line also ensures that the state of your pout is not to be neglected. The Make It Sweet Lip Scrub ($6) is designed to “gently buff away dead skin” as it treats your nose to the smell of “rainbow-sprinkled birthday cake.” This lip scrub’s lip mask counterpart, Play, Sleep, and Repeat ($6) claims to “nourish lips while you sleep.” Its lavender scent invites both your mind and body to enter a state of calm before getting those z’s. If you think a lip scrub and a lip mask make the perfect pairing, the Give Me TLC Lip Care Kit ($11) comes with both the scrub and mask, but it will only be available at Ulta.
Just when you thought this is it, think again. The collection wants to make sure that all your makeup and skin-care products are kept in a safe place with its Handle with Care Makeup Bag ($17). If you want this entire collection all to yourself, you can purchase the Care Bears PR Box for $79. The Care Bears x Wet n Wild Collection retails from $6 to $79 and will be available for purchase on March 29 at Ulta and Walmart. The whole line will also be available beginning March 29 at ulta.com and on walmart.com in mid-April.
