Packaged as chubby pencil sticks and pencil cases, the collection includes 24 different foundation shades, mascaras, highlighters, crayon colors for lips and cheeks and eye, face and lip palettes. There is also a selection of face brushes, stored in a holographic back-to-school-like case.

The entire line is vegan and cruelty-free, and the extensive color palette ranges from traditional pinks and reds through to forest green, turquoise and mustard yellow. Shimmering metallic highlighters and electric blue mascara adds a festive element to the series.
