These Nickelodeon eyeshadows will make you feel like it’s the 90s all over again
If you can name every Rugrat without checking Wikipedia and still remember all of the reasons why everyone wanted a Log, then get ready to be pumped. Hot Topic just released an official Nickelodeon eyeshadow palate ($17), themed to all of their best ’90s cartoons.
When you realize you’re an adult, and getting Nickelodeon merch no longer requires saving up your allowance.
The palette’s packaging is another sweet blast from the past. The eyeshadows are disguised in a pan that looks like an orange cassette tape, covered in the characters we spent hours with every Saturday morning. One look will time warp you back to afternoons with your Walkman playing Mya and Blackstreet’s “Take Me There” on repeat because the ’90s were a time when cartoons were so good that not only did they get full length feature films, but legit artists sang the soundtracks.
The thought of having a cassette tucked into our purse makes us giddy. But awesome packaging aside, the eyeshadows included in the palate are really pretty, featuring a few that could easily work into your everyday look.
There’s I’m Beautiful, a pure white we can thank Angelica for when it helps us wake up the inner corner of our eyes. You Eediot! is a bright red that’s a clear nod to Ren & Stimpy. He Loves Me is a useful shimmy brown, and reminds us of Helga and her forever crush on Arnold. All Dolled Up is a sparking pink that Cynthia the doll would love. Smashing is a neutral we can only guess is a tribute to one Nigel Thornberry.
Rawr, a Rugrats-inspired bright green, kicks off the bottom row. Oh Fishsticks is a perfect base white, and makes us wonder why they don’t show more back episodes of Rocko’s Modern Life. The bright blue Football Head is an obvious homage to Hey Arnold and looks fun for a night out. I’m the Boss is a shimmery purple that matches Angelica’s dress perfectly. And Hi Ho Diggety reminds us that like the color orange, CatDog was really underated.
’90s kids are showing off the hot looks they’ve made with the palate on Instagram. You can use it to create super fangirl looks:

💚Tag @hottopic down below!💚 . . Who else is a 90's baby? Even if you're not I'm sure you can appreciate awesome cartoons, bright colors, and slime! . . 💚Products Used 💚 @hottopic NICKELODEON EYESHADOW PALETTE (Oh Fishstick, Rawr, Hi Ho Diggety) @bennyemakeup Rainbow Wheel (Green for brows and waterline) @wolfefaceartfx Metallix Water Activated paints (slime tears and freckles) @mubi_beauty fairy dust glitter @katvondbeauty Ink Liner in Trooper @sparrow_cosmetics highlight in Toxic @wetnwildbeauty liquid catsuit in Flame of the Game . . 💚REVIEW💚 . . This palette can be found at Hot Topic for $16.90. It is cruelty free which is really great and the packaging is super adorable especially if you're feeling a bit nostalgic. I'm obsessed with the mirror since it has all of my favorite 90's characters and the shade names are super cute. . I've swatched all the colors and they all perform very well except for rawr which is the shade that caught my eye so that was very disappointing. It seems as though this was supposed to be a glitter shade but it does not work well with the pigment so you are not able to get a good Swatch or to get any pigment on your brush. I had to scrape the product out in order to pack it on my lid. . With that being said the orange shade in this palette is gorgeous and blends beautifully and the transition shade oh fish sticks is perfect for a base. I think all the other shades are really beautiful as well so I can't wait to reach for this palette again. If you're looking to purchase this palette I say go for it for the price it's really good and just because one shadow isn't the best doesn't mean you should miss out on the cutest palette I've probably ever seen. . #madeupbyilly #makeup #makeuppage #makeupguru #makeupmafia #makeuptutorial #makeupaddict #makeupcollection #makeupartist #mua #selftaught #beautypage #beautyguru #beautyaddict #beautyblogger #muafollowtrain #90s #nickelodeon #nickelodeonmakeup #hottopic #hottopicmakeup

Our retainers have been replaced by night serums and Saturday morning cartoons have given way to 24/7 streaming, but we’ll forever have a soft spot for the great Nickelodeon cartoons of the 90s And now there’s a place for them in our makeup bag too.
