Growing up with fairytale stories and movies is something that I share among with other girls my age (actually both older and younger ones!) so it isn't surprising that a lot of us have collected Disney princesses merchandise at some point in our lives!
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!
I had these items ordered straight from the Colourpop website and it arrived 2 weeks after purchase. I originally planned on getting the Disney Designer Collection It's a Princess Thing Eyeshadow Palette and all the 6 shades of Disney Designer Creme Lux Lipsticks. Unfortunately, the shades Jasmine and Tiana got sold out sooo fast so I can't include them in this blog post. Just in case you're wondering, I didn't buy the whole collection which also includes the Super Shock Shadow, Super Shock Highlighters and Ultra Glossy Lips because I won't be using them that much.
Get red carpet ready with the pièces de résistance of the collection, our first 15 pan shadow palette inspired by the iconic Disney princesses. These soft romantic shadows will add a touch of glam to any look to make you photo ready!
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)
LUX it up. Enriched with our LUX Blend of hydrating butters, this creamy-matte, long wearing lipstick glides on the lips for intense pigmentation in shades made for every skin tone.
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.
These lipsticks are definitely a must-have for every Disney princesses fans! The box packaging features the illustration of each princess, I appreciate art and pretty packaging so these ones are for keeps!
The casing with its golden color looks modern and chic. All the names of the 6 Disney princesses are written all over the cap like a signature. It looks simple yet beautiful, no need for childish and flamboyant designs. It doesn't look cheap eventhough its price is affordable! Each color of the lipstick perfectly symbolizes each Princesses:
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!
Application Tips: First prime your lips with a Lippie Primer to provide a smooth surface for your lipstick, then define your lips with Lippie Pencil and now you're ready to apply your Lux Lipstick.
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?
Complete your collection with this peachy beige nude.
Time’s running out! This true blue pink is only here ‘til midnight.
This enchanted rosy berry will give you so much more than this provincial life!
This candy apple red will have you ready for true love’s kiss.
It's honestly difficult to pick a favorite because I am a true blood lipstick addict and I always go for the shades of pink, peach, and red.
Meanwhile, I took the "Which Disney Princess Are You?“ Quiz from the Colourpop website and here is the result!
True enough, amongst all the other Disney Princesses, I could relate to Belle the most. First, I am a bookworm, the same as she is. Second, eventhough she is generally a nice girl, she hates flirty macho guys who are all looks and empty words with no gentlemanly ways, manners, and actions. And third, well, I see the goodness and beauty behind someone's beastly looks, hahahaha! Just kidding. Alright, enough.
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.....
For me, the winner for this is Colourpop Disney Designer Creme Lux Lipstick in Ariel!!! Well, I like her character in a way because she is a good singer BUT the reason why I like this lipstick shade the best is that eventhough I am not wearing any foundation, eyeshadow, and blush, with just the swipe of this shade, it enhances my features naturally. It doesn't look overwhelming nor underwhelming.
To make the most out of this collection, I matched the Creme Lux Ariel lipstick with the Colourpop Disney Designer It's A Princess Thing palette and chose the colors Grumpy, Triton, Abu, Prince Charming, and White Kiss.
