Yup, you read that right! Inspired by the Amazing Spider-Man 2 the Revlon Electric Chrome Collection has launched at drugstores (my best friend discovered it at Walgreens). The Revlon Electric Chrome Spider-Man Collection includes six limited edition Revlon Nail Colors as well as three limited edition Revlon Lustrous Lipgloss shades with a web design on the packaging.
I’m a massive Flash fan but I also have a soft spot for Spider-man and have rare copies of The Amazing Spider-Man #121 and #122 hanging in my home office. The death of Gwen Stacy is testimony to Marvel’s joy with torturing their heroes. If you’ve ever been unsure that Gwen’s death was actually Spidey’s fault they addressed the issue in #125 stating in fact it was the whiplash from his web that caused Gwen’s death. Oh the tortured hero how we love him! Gwen’s death was the gateway into the Bronze Age so we did have something positive come out of the experience for book readers.
It’s both expected and unexpected that Revlon decided to create a Spider-man themed makeup collection. Expected because Emma Stone is their promo model but unexpected for them to team up with something as massive as Spider-man. I didn’t think I’d ever see the day that comics and makeup collided and lord knows I have hopes this opens the door to more collections from brands…MAC needs to get on board with creating some sort of comic themed collection because lord knows I’m sure they’d ace it.
The Revlon Electric Chrome Spider-Man Collection is small but none the less I had my best friend pick up back ups of every single product he was able to find because I couldn’t not have a set to use and a set just to display as well!
