Great question! There are a few I’d love to see, but mostly Yasmine Galenorn’s Otherworld series or Seanan McGuire’s October Daye series.

I think the Hunger Games would be super cool for a collection–I’d really like to see what color “Girl on Fire” would be! Maybe a red with black glitter?

China Glaze have a “Hunger games” collection, I am wearing Fast track right now.

Ender’s game – cool, I never figured you for a Sci-Fi reader. I’d love to see this as well.

Oh God. Someone’s going to say Twilight… LOL.

Okay, there’s no point in laughing at that supposed purpose because I quite enjoy the books and movies. They have their purpose and value, even if they may be singular in focus.

But seriously, I’d love to see something based off the River God series of books by Wilbur Smith. With its vivid descriptions of Ancient Egypt, battles, love, hatred, etc… I’d imagine that collection to be full of vibrant and iridescent golds and browns, intertwined with the rich hues of imperial blues, crimson reds, and deep sea greens that Egyptians (apparently) love–yes, those descriptions allude to the book’s style of writing! It’s a rather romanticized idea from which I would in no way benefit. But still, I’d admire the collection from afar AND up close. 🙂

Carrie by Stephen King, O Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury, or any other book by Ray Bradbury, Night’s Master by Tanith Lee.

“A Scanner Darkly.” I’d love to see designer eyeshadow pans similar to the NARS Andy Warhol collection in the art style of the movie adaption. 🙂

I’d say Alice in Wonderland, but it’s been done many times before, so I’ll go for The Tale of Genji or Kino’s Journey.

I know it’ been done, but not properly; Alice in Wonderland. I’m obsessed with it. Also The Hunger Games could be amazing if they focus on the districts and then have a huge Capitol collection. Any Edgar Allen Poe would be vampy and Victorian.

If there were a Game of Thrones collection, I’d probably spend WAYYY too much money. lol. Especially if it was LE packaging.

My first thought was A Song of Ice and Fire. It’d probably be huge, though, with all the different houses you could take inspiration from (I really like the idea of an eyeshadow quad for each house). Lord of the Rings would be awesome as well.

Game of thrones was my first thought, too. I love your idea of an eyeshadow quad for each house.

I’m going to start the ball rolling…Stark: shimmery white, matte charcoal grey, matte dove grey and a dark shimmery green for the old gods.

Femme Fatale did a LOTR inspired collection of shadows, I think.

Ooh I love books that are set in another era. I’d love to see a Great Gatsby collection, or a Gone with the Wind themed collection. Mac already has a blush called Franky, Scarlet 😀

I TOTALLY agree, Harry Potter would be AWESOME! (I mean if stinky Twilight can get a set, then HP should knock it out of the park!) Maybe a pallet based on each house??? YES!

Also, I’m gonna just say it (even though everyone probably will too…) A Song of Ice and Fire! I mean, house colors and shimmery dragons and … yeah! I mean, doing it now would be cool because the show has gotten so popular! So it’d sell like hotcakes as well!

Anne of Green Gables. It could include a bottle of the dye that made Anne’s hair turn green, and it would be fun to have it packaged in replicated cosmetic packaging for that time period.

I love Anne of Green Gables! I actually have a literature inspired nail polish line called Literary Lacquers and I released a collection of Green Gables inspired polishes last week!

Harry Potter for sure. Just imagine the shadows! Deep, dark burgundies and classic golds for Gryffindor; earthy, rich bronzes and navy blues for Ravenclaw; bright, sunny yellow and matte black for Hufflepuff; and gorgeous forest greens and icy silvers for Slytherin! Oooohhh, a sheer lip gloss with tons and tons of green shimmer called “Floo Powder”… I could go on for days. I think Urban Decay could do that well. Plus with their tendency to go all out with their pop-up packaging, imagine what they could do for HP!

Or Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk! I would loooove a lipstick called “Aubergine Dreams”. Actually, can we just make all books into collections? I’d go with that.

Pygmy by Chuck Palahniuk crossed my mind. Good call going with Invisible Monsters though! Either one would be crazy strange & amazing.

Oooh, I’d love me a Ravenclaw and a Gryffindor eye look. Gorgeous!

Love your idea for the Floo Powder lip gloss, too! I think that’d be a hit!
