Remember I told you that Barbie is making a comeback and releasing a line of makeup and skincare products? Now Mattel Inc. is also partnering with Stila to give us the Barbie Loves Stila collection!

The new, limited edition collection features a new eyeshadow quad and 4 sets of paint cans. Each paint can features the look of an iconic Barbie doll from the past 5 decades and inside each can, there is a palette with 2 eyeshadows and a cheek color, a lip glaze/lipstick, a mascara/liquid liner and a “Barbie Look Book” that includes a history of each top-selling Barbie doll. The collection will launch exclusively at Sephora in February, only at Sephora’s Fifth Avenue store in NY, international Sephora locations and Sephora.com.

Stila will also sponsor Mattel’s Barbie runway show during New York Fashion Week in February 2009 with 50 as-yet-undisclosed designers to produce life-size outfits inspired by Barbie. Charlotte Tilbury, who did makeup for the Victoria’s Secret fashion shows, will be the show’s lead makeup artist. More Barbie-Stila branded products will also emerge this coming fall. Yay go Barbie!

This set is modeled after the first Barbie doll. Her striking red lips and black-rimmed cat eyes is the epitome of the 50s glamour.
