LA Splash has recently released a range of Harry Potter-inspired shades for their Smitten Liptint Mousse liquid lipsticks, and basically, Potterheads are going cray-cray. We’re talking names like “Bellatrix” for a vampy deep purple that’s almost as dark as the heart of Voldemort’s right hand woman, “Ravens Claw” for a elegant crimson that’s as regal as Hogwarts’ most intelligent house, while “Hermione” is somewhat unexpectedly a bright berry tone – we expected something more, well… studious.

Maybe the shades aren’t as representative of the characters as the diehard fans would like them to be (we think “Nagini”, a poisonous-looking green, is pretty spot-on though), the CEO of LA Splash’s parent company has explained to Refinery29 that these lipsticks “are not a representation of Harry Potter or any of Harry Potter’s licensed products”, and are merely “absolutely inspired by Harry Potter”. It’s okay, we think they’re pretty magical anyway.
