Korn is celebrating the 25th anniversary of their hit album Follow the Leader with an…eye shadow palette?

The band has partnered with HipDot for a special eye shadow palette whose colors are inspired by the album artwork for Follow the Leader. The palette features eight different colors which have been named after different tracks on the LP. It’s also cleverly housed in a CD jewel case.

In the Instagram post below, HipDot prides itself on their products being “… vegan, free of harmful ingredients, certified cruelty-free, and curated to embrace all skin tones.”

The Korn Follow The Leader palette retails for $22 and is available for purchase at
