In the late ’80s and early ’90s, Saved by the Bell was the holy grail for teenage style inspo. The big, crimpy hair; the off-the-shoulder sweatshirts; the blue eyeshadow. And fashion aside, the kids at Bayside tackled some pretty heavy topics, too. Remember when Jesse took too many caffeine pills and had a major freakout? Or Zack and Kelly’s very adult breakup at the costume ball? Deep.
Life was complicated back then, too, but the gang just made it seem easy. Can we go back!?
The answer is kind of. Indie beauty brand Sola Look just announced an official collaboration with SBTB, and will release a three-pack of lipsticks on February 3 at 11am PST. That’s just weeks until you can relive the ’90s and all its glory!
Each tube is named after one of the Bayside gals, Lisa, Kelly and Jesse.
The trio of lipsticks is called “liquid metallic” and comes packaged together with one of each hue: a brassy brown, a bright shimmery pink and an icy purple. One thing’s for sure, Mr. Belding would not be impressed with his students wearing these stand-out shades in class.
The packaging is just as amazing as the announcement itself, and uses the same hot pink, blue, yellow and white geometric designs from the show’s intro artwork. Of course there’s a big ‘ol SBTB logo on the front of the box as well.
You can feel good about wearing these lipsticks, too, as they’re vegan, paraben-free and cruelty-free. Probably a nod to the ‘Pipe Dreams’ episode in Season 3 when Zack befriends a duck, which is quickly named Becky, and turns her into a school mascot/hero. Tragically, Becky gets covered in oil (the school had just found out that there was oil under the football field, obv) and the students get woke to the importance of animal rights. So, yeah, cruelty-free is important at Bayside and for this Sola Look collab.
