I will be the first to admit….I have way more makeup than I ever wear.
It’s a problem.
I just wear the basics to work and never wear it on my lazy trackie days…. the only time I ever put any “real” effort in is when I am heading out on the town…and, judging by how big my ass got this winter, that’s not often.
But I love it. I love beautiful packaging, the way certain things feel in my hand and I love experimenting. (and I am totally aware that all of that sentence could be read in a totally different light)
I follow quite a few beauty bloggers so when I got wind of the newest limited edition piece of beauty joy I knew I just had to get it. Sephora (my guilty pleasure) has collaborated with Disney and has put out a few limited edition Princess collections in the past. Now, I’m definitely not too old for Disney but as a young girl I definitely missed out on the whole “Princess” theme that Disney has since marketed to the young ones. They were just the female characters from the movies I had watched as a kid.
I have two favourite Disney movies from my childhood: 1. The Fox and The Hound…friendship…I dare you to watch it and not be a slobbering sobbing mess at the end. and 2. The Little Mermaid…go after your dreams no matter how insurmountable they may be.
So when Sephora came out with the Cinderella collection, I passed (I don’t need to be rescued by any man) and when the Jasmine collection came out, I passed as well (she falls for a thief and a liar…no thanks)….but when I heard about the Ariel collection….well, my bank account was not happy with me.
I jumped online as soon as I knew it was on sale and picked up my first piece. The Sephora collections consist of many different products ranging from eyeshadows to perfume. I immediately purchased the Storylook Palette which consists of 20 different eyeshadows all in colours that represent Ariel and her world….with cutsey names like Scuttle, Your Voice, Sea Witch and Treasures Untold. I just received it in the mail today (was sold out the day after I placed my order) and haven’t had a chance to play around with it but I will definitely be treasuring it and experimenting with all of the colours this summer.
Thanks for stopping by and indulging in my guilty pleasure!
Hugs and love
