Visitors can discover summer looks with makeup artists from NYX and enjoy a "photobooth, pool area and lifeguard tower where they can cool off with a slushy and a pair of sunglasses".


NYX’s Barbie collection is “inspired by the vibrant colours and electrifying energy in the movie” and features “a diverse cast of Barbies and Kens” in its campaign imagery.

The new Barbie the Movie collection by NYX boasts "bright Barbie Land colours" and comprises of:

  • Two credit card-sized Eyeshadow Palettes with Barbie Butter Lip Gloss keychain attachment
  • Barbie Flip Phone Mirror
  • Barbie Jumbo Eye Pencil Kit/sticks in shades Vibrant Pink and Electric Blue

"We want to take everyone on a journey where all are welcome to dive into the pink beach paradise and express themselves with NYX’s new beauty products”


Yann Joffredo, Global Brand president of NYX Professional Makeup, said: “As a beauty brand rooted in entertainment, we’re thrilled to partner with an iconic studio like Warner Bros on the new movie Barbie.

“The themes of empowerment and embracing inner beauty in the movie align deeply with our core values of advocating for self-expression and exploring your boldest potential.
