But what about those whose fondest childhood memories didn't involve cuddling with stuffed bears or drawing in their Barbie coloring books, but staying up way too late, wide-eyed and terror-stricken in the best way, watching the same black-and-white monster movies that terrified your parents before you, and maybe even their parents before that? From the looks of a recent Instagram teaser, LASplash Cosmetics has something for them on the way, too.
“Hmmm... new collection?” the caption teased, alongside a product photo of what looks to be five liquid lipsticks. Each tube's cap is adorned with an instantly recognizable poster from a classic horror movie: Dr. Jekyll &Mr. Hyde, Dracula, Bride of Frankenstein, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, and the original The Mummy — not the remake.
Considering all five films came out in the early ‘30s (with the exception of The Creature from the Black Lagoon, which was released in 1954), LASplash’s new lineup throws it back just a little further than the ‘90s revival we’ve seen over the past few years. But these are timeless movies we’re talking about, and if you consider yourself a horror buff, there’s a solid chance at least one of them played a role in influencing your current obsession. Keep your eyes peeled for more news on the launch — and whatever you do, don't turn out the lights.
