Hot Topic Launched A Blockbuster Makeup Palette

Oh, the nostalgia!

The oldest Gen Z-ers will remember Blockbuster, the video rental store that predated infinite channels and streaming services. Relish in the throwback vibes by purchasing Hot Topic’s newest eyeshadow palette that’s an ode to the old store.

Featuring twelve shades, the palette comes in a case that closely resembles the VHS cases that touted Blockbuster’s label. The eyeshadow colors include: New Releases, Adventure, Classics, Drama, Family, Sci-Fi, Comedy, Fantasy, Cartoon, Horror, Action and Television—all genre categories that once existed at Blockbuster. They are all inspired by hues present on the store’s logo.

I remember hitting Blockbuster on Friday nights with my family and having a say in the movies we picked, so this nostalgic nugget is everything. It makes a lot of sense since everything from our childhood—from low rise jeans to bedazzled jeans—are coming back.
