So... I'm sure you've heard about this by now, but on the off chance that you didn't I figured I had no choice but to share my excitement and the gorgeousness of this collection!

I grew up on Jem. It was my absolute favorite when I was a kid and a few years ago I decided to rewatch the entire series while I was on a crafting bend. Of course, it was a little more psycho than I remembered it being, but it still had that bright, glittery nostalgia that I had been looking for. The movie is NOT something I am even a little bit excited about - since apparently taking the coolest cartoon for girls of the 80s and turning it into Emo Hannah Montana With Pink Eyeliner was someone in Hollywood's cruel plan. I saw the trailer and I cringed. Hard. They left out the HOLOGRAMS. Like, not the group, but the actual holograms. No Synergy. Oh, and Jerrica Benton is some kind of melancholy teenager making videos of herself singing in her bedroom, rather than running a record label. And then there appears to be your standard run-of-the-mill girlenemy tropes when Jem steals the spotlight. Puke. Way to bring down the bad ass, movie. UGH. Movie fail kicks the ass off my childhood nostalgia.

However, Sephora has gone and made it a little bit better by releasing this 4 piece Jem & The Holograms Collection that manages to capture that spirit of the TV show that the movie completely missed. With the original logo, all the pink a girl could ask for and a dash of Glitter & Gold, this collection is pretty much every 80s girl's dream collection.

Clearly I'll be getting my hands on that liquid lipstick set if it's the last thing I do. And I'll be crossing my fingers that there is the perfect lippie in there for my Jem costume for this Halloween! So far these products have only gone live on the US site, but I'm waiting very impatiently for them to come available for us Canadian shoppers! Fingers crossed it's soon!

Will you be picking up anything from this collection???
