We’re all tired of all the drama, and the apparent ‘tea-spilling’ happening in the beauty industry right now. And if you have no idea what I’m talking about, you must’ve been living in a pineapple under the sea. Because the Tati-James Charles drama is EVERYWHERE. And it looks like Jeffree Star is about to chime in with his ‘receipts’. However, we can depend on drag queens and collaborations to make our days brighter. And the collab we’re talking about is the NYX x Aquaria!

RuPaul’s Drag Race season 10 winner always has a gorgeous face on. So we trust her instincts ENTIRELY when it comes to ours.


This is the brand’s first ever drag queen collab – about time! In fact, the legendary performer even debuted the collection on the carpet, at the Met Gala 2019! The alliance resulted in the creation of a gorgeous eye shadow palette.

Speaking to Out Magazine, Aquaria dished that the inspiration behind the palette was for it’s ability to be used on the road. “For a palette that only has 10 shades, you have to make smart decisions, and choose colors and finishes wisely.” Thematically, the inspiration was punk noir and dark city.

The process of creating a palette was a first for the queen. But she says that NYX let her run free and wild, and gave her creative freedom – the way it should be, imo. The brand has been a part of her life ever since she started on the path of makeup. And being able to create something with them has been like a dream come true.

The NYX x Aquaria palette has only 10 shades, but it’s something that will work for almost everyone. You have transition, depth and shimmery lids.

This limited edition palette contains a wardrobe of pigment-loaded shades for creating countless eye and face looks. Known for her powerful charisma, bold makeup looks and love for all things futuristic (think high-fashion space alien meets grungy robotic angel), Aquaria is redefining the way people think about beauty. And of course, we are sooooo here for it. Much like the superstar it’s inspired by, this versatile palette is anything but basic, and empowers you to create a universe of imaginative looks.

And quote Aquaria, “Makeup is all about confidence, so if you’re confident about what you’re putting on it will definitely show.”

The palette launches on the 30th of makeup online, and in-store.
