I didn't know Lum was popular enough to still move merchandise. Good for her!

She as a character and UY as franchise in general stayed quite popular. In recent years there were some Lum t-shirts, towels, pillows, clocks, puzzles...

Ha ha, I wonder if it's a nostalgic 80's retro thing going on over in Japan, like with Transformers and G.I. Joe and classic 8-bit stuff here, and all those ironic/iconic throwback shirts/merchandise they sell nowadays. Y'know, old school rules, and all that jazz (do people still say that Laughing).

I LOVE YOU LUM!!

Ordinarily, I don't fall for cartoon characters, but I'll make an exception for this one.

Oh if only it did. Haha.

Bandai's press release describes the cosmetics as giving women "big and beautiful eyes just like Lum-chan."


I can't stop laughing at that line. It's like right out of a cosmetic mag. The line and Lum are perfect. Oh Japan what would we do without this level of entertainment.

Keyword, eyeliner and mascara. The blue you are thinking of is her eye shadow color. Asian folk don't have the eye or hair color to pull off blue thus why I think they didn't include eye shadow in this line of makeup.
