perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave.

This Christmas, I was lucky enough to receive a couple of things from the Cinderella line at Sephora. The first I am going to be reviewing, is the Fairytales Do Come True Storybook Eyeshadow Palette.


As you can see from the picture above, the packaging is lovely. It definitely maintains the elegance and romance you would expect from a Cinderella line. One detail I really love about this palette, is that the case is lined with velvet, and the set of eyeshadows can pop out. This leaves you with a really nice little jewellery case, if you so wish. Such a pretty detail!

Now, onto the eyeshadow reviews and swatches!


To start with, I adore the names of the eyeshadows. They are so cute! From Pumpkin Coach to Gus Gus, they really stay true to the theme of the line. There are also a lot of really fantastic shades in this set...and some that are just meh.

If you love matte shadows, then definitely give this palette a miss. This set is all about shimmer! I personally love a good shimmery shadow, so these worked really well for me. There are a couple of matte shades in this set. However, I didn't feel like they gave a whole lot of colour pay off. You really had to work to build the product up.

The first two rows of shadows had some good, light shimmery shades, and some not so thrilling matte shades. However, the bottom two rows of eyeshadows are incredible. They are rich, pigmented, and the colours are stunning! Standouts are Chateau, Palace, Cinders, and Jaq.

Overall, I quite liked this eyeshadow palette. If you love cute packaging, Disney princesses, shimmery eyeshadow shades and a smokey eye, then the Fairytales Do Come True Storybook Eyeshadow Palette may be something to consider.

Have you tried anything from the Cinderella collection? What do you think of it?

  8. Great review! I looked at this palette before, but I'm afraid the pigmentation isn't as high as I'd like it to be. I guess you could fix it with a primer underneath, though?

  12. So far the packaging (gorgeous) is really the only thing this palette has going for me... It'd be nice to have, but really, I don't need more eyeshadows :( (yet somehow I'm able to justify possibly buying the Naked 2 palette?)
