As girls grow up, the things that we collect changes: from stationaries to arts & crafts, from toys to figurine collectibles, from dolls to clothes and shoes, it varies a lot! In my case, I've been collecting makeup for quite a while now so imagine my excitement when it was announced that Colourpop is releasing the Disney Designer Collection featuring the original Disney princesses: Snow White, Cinderella, Ariel of Little Mermaid, Belle of Beauty and the Beast, Jasmine from Aladdin, and Tiana of The Princess & The Frog!
Now, let's talk about the packaging! The eyeshadow palette is encased in a golden box which looks simple, chic, and classy. Inside is the palette with the fashionably glamourized Disney Princesses illustration on the cover and upon opening, their names are written amongst the colorful metallic stars. The palette itself is lightweight yet sturdy, and I must say that it is perfect to bring along since you may use it not just as an eyeshadow, but also highlighter and even contour!
Highly pigmented shadow that applies evenly and feels ultra-velvety and silky. This long wearing formula contains a unique combination of softer powders which adheres easily to the eyes, gives a soft focus effect, and blends smoothly and evenly.

Apply with your favorite shadow brushes. Flat and firmer brushes will give the most color payoff. Fluffier brushes are great for blending. Use a small angled brush to line the eyes.
The eyeshadows in this palette are highly-pigmented (esp when the brush used is damp), easy to blend both when using brush and\or fingers, and stays for a long time, up to 5-6 hours with an eyeshadow primer. The metallic eyeshadow highlighters are really pretty, it gives just the right amount of shimmer that brightens the eye area, they can also be used on cheekbones, chin, forehead, and nose for a subtle glow.
Now let us talk about the Disney Designer Creme Lux Lipsticks ($7.00 each)
These full coverage lipsticks are packed full of the finest pigments to give you long wearing, true color in shades made for every skin tone. This formula glides on like butter and has a creamy matte finish. Their exclusive LUX blend of Acai, Jojoba and Pomegranate Seed butters hydrate and keep your lips looking fresh AF. Natural antioxidants protect your lips from environmental stressors and premature aging.
Cinderella wears a true blue pink lipstick that enhances her beauty inside out, Ariel wears a peach beige nude that matches her "beachy" mermaid lifestyle, Belle wears a flattering rosy berry that screams beauty and brains, and Snow White wears a candy apple red that brings out her striking contrasting features of fair white skin and raven hair. I feel sad to miss the shades of Jasmine and Tiana but I'll update this blog post in case I get a hold of them!
At the photos below, I am wearing the Disney Designer Creme Lux Lipsticks with a very simple makeup look. They said, to be able to find out which one is the most flattering shade of lipstick for you, it should instantly brighten and enhance your facial features and complexion even without the help of eyeshadows beautifying your eyes. Which one do you think suits me best?
Meanwhile, I took the "Which Disney Princess Are You?“ Quiz from the Colourpop website and here is the result!
Eventhough I like channeling my inner Belle, does it mean that the Belle shade in this collection flatters me the most? Hmmm let's see.....
