The movie, “Beauty and the Beast,” is one of my all time favorite Disney movies so when I was online browsing and discovered Disney’s “Tale as Old as Time,” eye shadow palette, I definitely needed to check it out. As you guys know, I am a sucker for creative and unique packaging, which I know I mention a lot, and when I saw this particular packaging, I had to get it. I received my order a few days ago and instantly began trying out and playing with the makeup. The palette looks like a fairy tale book, and when you open it up, on the left are the images of some of the movie characters and mirror looks like the magic mirror. It also comes with a little shadow brush.
This palette comes with twelve beautiful shades, six matte colors and six shimmery colors and they are all stamped with a rose, which I thought was a very pretty touch. All the shade names are all so cute and the colors are beautiful and all work well together which is something I look for when it comes to makeup palettes.
I was very impressed with the quality of this makeup, especially because I wasn’t sure what to expect. The eye shadows feel so smooth and creamy to the touch and blends beautifully with each other as well as other brands. When I first swatched the colors, I was very surprised and happy with the pigment. The directions written on the back of the palette say to apply each color alone or blend the shades to create a signature look. Layer for a bolder look, or sweep lightly for a hint of color. The shades complement all skin tones and the pigment is long lasting. It’s also cruelty free. You can find this palette online through Hot Topic and I believe even if you go on Amazon you might be able to find it also but might be a different price.
Besides the “Beauty and Beast,” eyeshadow palette, I also found these beautiful red rose makeup brushes through Sela Beauty but I think you can find other rose brush styles through other places online. You just need to look them up. They come in a pack of six and give a choice of what kind of stem you want. I bought the brushes with the pink and green stem handle because they looked exactly like the “enchanted rose,” from the film. The brushes include two fluffy powder brushes, one kabuki brush, two blush and contour brushes, and one smaller brush which can be used for highlighting. You can also find and get rose shadow brushes as well. The only issue I had with these brushes is that you have to examine them closely to see which brush is which. Besides that, I thought these brushes were lovely. They aren’t super heavy but still have a good quality to them. They are so soft and apply makeup very well and not harsh on the skin.
These products aren’t a big luxury brand, but are definitely not cheap. I still love it and definitely recommend checking it out if you’re looking for something different and fun. It’s fun, whimsical, and magical.
