ColourPop Disney Designer Collection is Here
I can’t say that I’m a Disney fan. I don’t dislike Disney, but I’m not super into it. However! When I heard there was a ColourPop Disney collaboration and then saw the eyeshadow palette, I had to have it…and a couple other items as well.
Disney Designer Collection
The full collection includes an eyeshadow palette, three Ultra Glossy Lips, six Super Shock Shadows, six Lux Lipsticks, and two Super Shock Highlighters. I restrained myself and only ordered two items from the collection.
The ColourPop “It’s a Princess Thing” Pressed Powder Shadow Palette costs $20 and contains 15 eye shadows. That comes out to $1.33 per shadow. !!! The palette is inspired by six iconic Disney princesses: Tiana, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Snow White, and Cinderella. As always with ColourPop, the packaging is absolutely adorable. The palette comes housed in a golden box with princess autographs all over it. And the palette’s front cover has haute couture-style sketches of each princess in a designer gown.
I also bought one of the Disney Designer Collection Ultra Glossy Lips, in the shade Bibbidi ($6). To hit that $30 minimum for free shipping (damn you, ColourPop!) I ordered the Pressed Powder Shadow in Glass Bull ($4), which I’ve had my eye on for awhile.
How cute is the inside of the eyeshadow palette?
It’s a Princess Thing
Honestly, I had a hard time photographing this palette. The light has changed with the seasons and I struggled to take photos that accurately depict the colors. Here’s a look at the palette in bright light:
Here’s another look at the palette, but with less sunlight:
The palette leans pretty warm, probably because beauty fans are going gaga for warm palettes right now. Warm tones on my eyes are not great; I think pinks and reds in particular make me look sick. However, there are enough neutrals in this palette for my taste.
Here is the full list of shades and descriptions from ColourPop’s website:
- Chip: matte soft beige nude
- Juju: matte warm rosy pink
- Grumpy: matte dusty salmon
- Triton: sand with a golden sheen
- Abu: matte intense warm brown
- Prince Charming: ivory pearl with a green duochrome
- Ray: metallic champagne
- Fairy Godmother: metallic bright coral
- One Kiss?: metallic bright coppery gold
- Thingamabob: vibrant metallic silver
- Enchanted Rose: rich metallic rose
- Poison Apple: metallic pinky violet
- Magic Carpet: blackened plum
- Beast: deep warm brown topped with gold glitter
- Midnight Curfew: black sprinkled with silver glitter
I swatched these shadows on my arm so you can see what they look like on fair skin. To create each swatch, I swirled my clean finger in the pan a few times and then swiped it onto my arm. The first pic below shows swatches of the top row of shadows (Chip is hard to see because it’s close to my skin tone):
Swatches of the middle row…THOSE METALLICS THO:
And the bottom row:
A couple of the shadows (Abu and Beast) swatched a bit patchy, so we’ll see how they fare on the lid. The metallics look especially pigmented; I’ll use my finger to pat those onto my lid because doing so gives better color payoff while preventing fallout. Prince Charming is a good inner corner highlight color and I think Magic Carpet, Beast, and Midnight Curfew would all make good liner shades.
I haven’t played with this palette much on my eyes just yet but it’s going to be fun seeing what kind of looks I can create!
Ultra Glossy Lip
I wanted to try one of the lip products from the Disney collection and I settled on something a little different for me: Ultra Glossy Lip in Bibbidi ($6). This is a clear gloss with golden shimmer, so it’ll be a good topper for basically any lip color. It’ll also be fun on its own! I like that this gloss comes with a doe foot applicator. The last Ultra Glossy Lip I bought has a thin, pointy brush tip that doesn’t distribute product evenly. The formula is moisturizing but not sticky, which is great for a gloss. Scroll down to see a swatch!
Single Pressed Powder Shadow
I had been eyeing ColourPop’s Pressed Powder Shadow in Glass Bull so I finally bought it. I ordered the pan-only version because I have a Z Palette that I can pop it into. Glass Bull is described as an icy blue duochrome lavender…it is SUCH a cool shade!
Due to the duochrome nature, Glass Bull’s color shifts depending on the angle and light. Sometimes it looks more cool toned, sometimes it gives off a warmer vibe. I do love a color shifting shadow!
Below are swatches of Bibbidy and Glass Bull on my arm. I took this photo in the shade:
The eyeshadow palette is a little more warm-toned than I expected—I’m definitely going to enjoy playing around with the neutrals the most. As always, I’m impressed with ColourPop’s quality for the price. The brand is actually starting to feel a little too good to be true…like…when are we going to find out the founder is a racist piece of shit, or they’re lying about being cruelty-free? Fingers crossed that never happens!!
Have you picked up anything from the ColourPop Disney Designer Collection yet?
