Ciate London have launched a makeup collection based on ‘80s cartoon icon, Jessica Rabbit, one of the most renowned sex symbols in animation, who was known for the classic line, "I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way."
Jessica co-starred in the 1988 Disney film Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, a live-action/animated comedy film directed by Robert Zemeckis, which was based on Gary K. Wolf's 1981 novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit? The film starred Bob Hoskins, Christopher Lloyd, Charles Fleischer, Stubby Kaye, and Joanna Cassidy and combined live-action and animation. Set in Hollywood during the late 1940s, the film is perhaps best remembered for Jessica’s character, a singer who is based on Rita Hayworth, Veronica Lake, and Lauren Bacall. The character was voiced by another ‘80s sex symbol, Kathleen Turner.
Cruelty-free makeup brand Ciate London will release the Jessica Palette, Roger, Darling! Glow-To Highlighter and Jessica Rabbit Glitter Storm Lipstick, which is perfect for collectors. The nine-piece eyeshadow palette retails for $39, while the highlighter is listed at $32. The glitter storm lipstick is a bit more affordable at $22.
Ciaté London, founded in 2009 by celebrity nail technician Charlotte Knight, is known for featuring innovative formulations and celebrated nail products. Since expanding into makeup, the brand have become pioneers in the industry, introducing the latest product innovations such as the first transforming liquid lipstick, Glitter Flip, and fan favorite Dewy Stix highlighting balm.

All the products included in the Jessica Rabbit collection have a unique sparkly sheen that brings to mind old school glamour crossed with bold animation colors. Though Ciaté and Sephora sold out of the box collections two days after the launch, the products can still be purchased individually, or you can leave your email to be informed when the box is restocked.
The packaging, which has a vaguely ‘80s feel, is an ode to the screen siren herself. The collection joins other Disney makeup collections, such as the Paul & Joe Bambi blush, the Alice in Wonderland palette from Urban Decay, the Beauty & the Beast Primark collaboration, and an Orly x Frozen nail polish line. What makes this collection unique though is that unlike Bambi or Alice, Jessica Rabbit is an actual glam beauty inspiration.
