Milani Cosmetics has partnered with female hip-hop duo Salt-N-Pepa to launch a makeup collection celebrating their style and the ‘90s as a whole. 

The collection includes The Hot, Kool and Vicious eyeshadow and highlighter palette and The Very Necessary eyeshadow and highlighter palette, both of which are shaped like CDs. It also includes two lip kits inspired by the duo: “Push It” and “Shoop.”

"Makeup has always been a form of self-expression for us,” says Sandra “Pepa” Denton. “I love to experiment and play with different looks and have been a long-time Milani makeup user. My mother and sisters also use the brand so this partnership took things full circle.”

The pair was heavily involved in creating the collection, choosing products along with shades, textures and more.

"Milani's message of diversity and inclusivity really resonated with us," says Cheryl “Salt” James. "It was extremely important for us to create products that represent us and are accessible to our fan base."

The limited-edition collection is available now on and In-store distribution will be followed by the launch at Ulta stores on Mar. 15. Other availability includes Walgreens, CVS, HEB and Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada as well.

"Milani was one of the first brands to champion diversity and stand behind the mission of offering prestige quality to all," says Evelyn Wang, chief marketing officer, Milani Cosmetics. "Throughout their career, Salt-N-Pepa have achieved many notable 'firsts' – first female rap act to gold and platinum status; first female rap act to win a Grammy Award. It's been a collaboration that celebrates breaking barriers and true confidence.”
