Disney Cinderella Collection by Sephora Midnight Hour Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

I may not be a huge Disney Princess fan, but the Disney Cinderella Collection by Sephora Midnight Hour Eyeshadow Palette ($30) is so charming that I can't help but fall in love with its sweet glamour. This limited edition, Sephora exclusive eyeshadow palette is from an eight-piece Cinderella collection that includes lips, nails, eyes, fragrance, and beauty tools. More Disney princesses are due to get the Sephora treatment in the future, so keep an eye out for your favorite!

If you're a sucker for packaging, the Disney Cinderella Collection by Sephora Midnight Hour Eyeshadow Palette will surely appeal to your girlish side with its absolutely delightful presentation. It comes in a light teal box with gold embossing, and the quad itself is packaged in an ivory plastic case with lovely artwork. The image is of Cinderella descending the castle staircase as the golden clock in the upper right corner strikes midnight. You can see the prince looking after her from the top of the staircase, which I think is a nice touch. Inside, the shadows are set within a glam gold border and there's a mirror with the inscription "It's the exit he'll remember."

Not only is the presentation impeccable, but the quality of the shadows is good too. The Disney Cinderella Collection by Sephora Midnight Hour Eyeshadow Palette includes a snowflake shimmer, a champagne nude shimmer, a light blue/grey shimmer, and a shimmery navy with glitter. All of the shadows are very soft and silky. The snowflake shimmer and the champagne nude shimmer are both extremely pigmented, but I wish that the two blue shades had more pop. Primer and wet application will give these shades better payoff.

I think this quad would look best on cool-toned people, but I really love the champagne nude shade. Combined with the other three colors, I can create a smokey eye that creates a nice contrast against my blonde hair.

These shadows have pretty typical wear time for me -- about four hours before they start to crease without primer, and all day wear with a good base.

For this look, I applied the champagne nude shade from lash line to browbone. I then applied the light blue/grey shimmer to my lid and lined my upper lashline with the shimmery navy. I used the shimmery snowflake to highlight the inner corner of my eye and browbone. I really love the wintery pop of this white shade!

Bottom Line: I believe that the Disney Cinderella Collection by Sephora Midnight Hour Eyeshadow Palette is pretty much a must-have for girly Disney fans, but other people will likely have a lot of fun with this product too. The color selection is nice and the quality of the shadows ranges from good to great. This palette can create shimmery smokey eyes that are perfect for cool weather and could make a great gift. The primary drawback is that the blue shades don't have incredible color payoff. All of the shadows are shimmery as well, which could be a problem if you like your eyeshadow palettes to include matte options.

    3. Aww, thanks for the nomination! I loved reading your answers. We have quite a few things in common (geekiness, anxiety, makeup splurging ;))

    1. Super fun! I'm curious which other princesses will get collections. I'm hoping for Belle -- it could be all French-inspired and cute!
