Friday fun: Muppets and makeup

Much like the hoopla it caused around the release of Alice in Wonderland, the makeup industry is having a field day in terms of products for the new Muppets movie.  First up is The Balm's Muppet palette:

It's pretty cute and I like that they managed to fit most of the Muppets onto one palette, which I'm guessing is no easy feat. 

Next is the Miss Piggy collection for MAC, which will be released in November.  Oh, Kermie!!

The small collection features a liquid eyeliner, flirty false eyelashes and a pink eye shadow:

Miss Piggy had quite a bit to say about the collection and her beauty regimen.  According to Glamour, in a statement via MAC she said that working with the company to create the collection was very smooth:   "Oh I adore collaboration—especially when everyone is there to listen to what I have to say and do exactly what I tell them to...they did all the work while I did all the talking!"  As for her daily beauty routine, it's very simple: "At home and on the set, my beauty routine is the same. I sit in a chair while a squadron of stylists, manicurists, cosmetologists, hairologists and so forth hover around and make magic. Then, I open my eyes, look in the mirror and voila…perfection! The advantage of doing this on set is that someone else pays for it."  Love it.

That's not all Miss Piggy's been up to, however:  she also helped with the creation of OPI nail polishes coming in November:


There will also be glittery polishes:

While I'm not a fan of glitter polishes, I do like the names of these - Rainbow Connection and The Fresh Frog of Bel Air are just too cute!

So what do you think?  Will you be seeing the Muppets movie and/or buying any of these products?
