Blockbuster Video Inspired Eyeshadow Palette: For Browsing The New Releases

Blockbuster: once the powerhouse of VHS and DVD rentals, now a bygone dinosaur, killed by the meteor that was its inability to adapt to a changing marketplace. But to harken back to the days of actually having to drive somewhere to rent a movie, Hot Topic is selling these $14 Blockbuster inspired eyeshadow palettes, which even come in what looks like a VHS rental box.

I assumed the colors would all be blue and yellow, but there’s actually a variety, named after the different sections of a Blockbuster store, including (from top left to right): New Releases, Adventure, Classics, Drama, Family, Sci-Fi, Comedy, Fantasy, Cartoon, Horror, Action, and Television. Obviously, there are bonus points if you apply the eyeshadow with your Blockbuster membership card, which I still have in my wallet because you never know when the company might turn around.

When my local Blockbuster closed, the space went up for rent and it was eventually renovated into a cycling studio, which, and this might come as a surprise, I visit far less frequently than I did the Blockbuster. Or ever really.
