You have less than a week to gather all of your coins and exercise your click-to-buy finger before the Manny MUA x Lunar Beauty "Life's a Drag" eye shadow palette drops. While Manny Guiterrez is not new to the product collab game, the YouTube and Instagram sensation has been working on his own personal product brand for the past two years. The first launch in the line is finally ready, and it's exactly what your Summer makeup stash needs. Let's take a look at all the deets.
The cruelty-free, 14-pan palette (which also comes with a dual-ended brush) has a mix of bold brights and a few neutral tones, all in a combo of shimmer and matte finishes. The shade names, which Guiterrez says are inspired by drag and the LGBTQ+ community, are fun and fab as well. Some of the standouts are "Shady," a matte black, "Kiki," a mint green, "Pageant Queen," a vibrant purple, and "Slay," a fiery red.
It's the inaugural launch in Manny MUA's Lunar Beauty collection and a true labor of love for Gutierrez, who wanted to pay an homage to the drag roots he says inspired his love of makeup. He worked through every last detail, down to the rose gold mirror finish box the palette comes in. The palette itself has a holographic oversize shot of Manny MUA's eyes in drag makeup.
Gutierrez has been wearing a few of the shades for the past few months, but he did a full reveal of the palette on YouTube. It's 22 minutes long, so grab a cup of coffee, settle in, and prepare to be amazed.
Life's a Drag will be available at 11 a.m. PT on June 2 for $45.
