The other day, my Little Mermaid loving, beach obsessed roommate posted a picture of Sephora makeup. It was a Little Mermaid inspired collection that hosts an array of light blues, neutrals and a few coral colors.
At first, I wasn’t too sure about the collection and just assumed it was spam, but the more I investigated, the more I was willing to see the collection for myself. But I was still skeptical. Disney at this age? I lost my ability to think I was a princess at age 12, then again at age 16, when I wasn’t given a new car on my birthday.
I was happily surprised that the collection is for adults and nostalgic of my childhood. It’s the perfect combination of my love of Disney and my love of makeup.
This Disney for Sephora collection is not something that you’re going to let your little sister or nieces play with as the various eye shadow pallets and perfume range from $24 to $55 online. Mid-priced, but even for this collection, your little sister probably won’t be playing dress-up with it.
The colors are natural and not as vibrant or overwhelming as you would anticipate from a Disney collaboration.
My first purchase was for my roommate. I chose a smaller pallet because she is slowly transitioning into wearing makeup and the four color combination is a great start.
The smaller pallet has a wonderful cover that simply portrays the Little Mermaid. The colors range from neutrals to a olive green and blue/purple combination. It’s the perfect pallet for anyone with green or brown eyes with colors that are going to make your eyes pop.
The collection contains six polishes with cute names such as: Life Is in the Bubbles, Ariel, Off The Hook, Devotin’ to Floatin’, We Are In Luck and Hotter Under the Water. The colors contain blues, teals, coral, white and purple. These polishes are getting great reviews and I can’t wait to make them my next purchase. They might even make that hot guy you have been meaning to ask out want to “kiss the girl”.
The last part of the collection, which is not offered on the Sephora website is the Ariel Storybook Pallet. Fortunately, it can be found on other makeup sites. As a little warning, that the pallet is $55 at Sephora and other websites retail the set at over $100. So make sure that you’re willing to spend the money.
The pallet is colorful, with an array of hues that would satisfy any makeup lover. It’s a great addition to any makeup set and I’m a little bummed that it wasn’t for sale on the website. Maybe its due to being sold out at the time.
For all you Disney enthusiasts, you probably recognize that this is not the first time that Sephora has offered a Disney inspired collection. The first collection was Cinderella inspired. I love that the collections are for a more mature crowd with wearable colors that are not outrageous and childlike. If you’re looking for a cute gift for a friend, or a roommate, check out the latest Disney collection from Sephora before it’s all sold out, since they seem to be limited editions.
As for me, I can’t wait to give my roommate her newest addition to her growing makeup collection!
