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?
