Makeup lovers and a Green Day fans should get excited — because the Kat Von D Beauty x Billie Joe Armstrong Basket Case eyeliner will be available sooner than you think. While Kat Von D is no stranger to the beauty industry, people were initially shocked to find that the LA Ink star was doing a makeup collaboration with the Green Day singer.
Kat and Billie Joe are long-time friends and have worked together on many charitable causes particularly involving animal rights. And with Billie Joe making guyliner mainstream in the 90’s, it actually makes a lot of sense.
Kat Von D posted a photo on Instagram announcing the release date for Basket Case and said the product will be available for purchase “early January 2018.”
“YOU GUESSED IT! Introducing BASKET CASE, the limited edition black anti-precision eye pencil inspired by @thekatvond’s long time friend @billiejoearmstrong Launching EARLY JANUARY 2018 #coming soon #vegan”
The eyeliner name is inspired by the song “Basket Case” from Green Day’s 1994 breakout album, Dookie. The sleek packaging features the brand name in the original font used for the Dookie album as well as Armstrong’s signature on the cap.
This product will be sold as a limited edition, so come January be sure to have your wallets ready.
