The Sephora Disney Cinderella Collection for Holiday 2012 includes two eyeshadow palettes including the Sephora Disney Cinderella Midnight Hour Eyeshadow Palette ($30 USD / $36 CAD), a gorgeous palette containing four muted, frosty eyeshadows. The other eyeshadow palette is much larger, containing 20 eyeshadows, and can be seen here. This enchanting collection experiences the magical story of Cinderella in a whole new light; each piece delivering words of wisdom about life, love and making dreams come true. This limited-edition collection is available now on Sephora.
Each one of the Sephora Disney Cinderella Collection items comes with a quote- and the one for this palette is “it’s the exit he’ll remember“. I guess Cinderella is telling us to make a lasting impression with this eyeshadow palette!
The packaging is stunning- from the beautiful box to the picture on top of the compact. This palette contains four eyeshadows and I am completely blown away by their quality! Unfortunately each shade is quite shimmery or frosty, I definitely would have liked to see a matte in the palette, but I can understand that shimmers and glitters look more ‘magical’.
The shades include:
- White: A shimmery, pigmented white
- Champagne: A frosty, rose champagne
- Grey: A deep, frosted grey
- Sparkles: A sparkly, charcoal black
Each color is beautifully pigmented and buttery smooth- making them a dream to apply. They do have a bit of fall-out if you take too much on the brush though, so be careful and make sure to pack them on.
The palette also comes with a small, double-ended brush with a sponge-tip applicator on one side and a brush-tip applicator on the other. I’m not usually a fan of these included applicators and this one is no different… it feels cheap and I’d rather use my finger if I had to… so I just toss it out.
I’m really in love with this palette and I think it’s a fantastic piece from the collection. You don’t have a whole lot of versatility with the shades… it’s more of a soft smoky palette without much variety, but the colors themselves are quite unique, making this palette a favorite in my books! I know that Sephora doesn’t always have a great track record with their eyeshadow formulations… but this one is definitely at the top (similar to the Primal Instincts palette).

- Overall: Another great piece from the Sephora Disney Cinderella collection. The four unique shades are beautifully pigmented, buttery smooth and the entire packaging is stunning in itself. The included applicators aren’t very useful, and I wish there would have been a matte or satin shade in the palette- but I still think it’s one of the better palettes that Sephora has made.
