Cinders has never been my favourite. I’ll just open with that. Against all odds – honestly, there are FABULOUS crystal shoes in the story – I am not that fond of this princess. Even the villains are a bit dull.
I am definitely more an Aurora girl – and Maleficent, of course. But let’s put that aside.
Now, I am a MAC fan, and always will be. Most of my basic make up is from there and has been for the past 10 years, but I’ll tell you why I am not rushing to get any of the items in this collection.
The colour palette is a bit dull. The eye colours remind me too much of Naked 2 and 3 with some purple thrown in for good measure.
I mean, it is very pretty, don’t get me wrong, but in the past couple years, so much has been done on the nude front.
I know it is periwinkle inspired (and that is a lovely shade, must I add), but the packaging for me, is a a bit the kind I’d expect on play makeup for 5 year-old girls.
If I have to pick an item, I would possibly go for one of the pigments – well, I do love a pigment and the colours are quite decent.
Maybe the fault lies with Cinderella herself; pretty as she is, there isn’t much variety in this princess’ palette to get that creative – maybe the brash colours of the stepsisters? Pumpkin-orange? I am not sold.
I can’t really see anything different or innovative to get me that excited. Overall, a bit dull. Apart from the names – they are a lot of fun!!!
No doubt it will fly off the shelves as a MAC x Disney collaboration is always popular, but, sorry, princess, I’ll pass this time.
If you want, keep you eyes peeled – it will be available from the end of this month online and in-stores from early March.
The film – which I probably won’t pass on – is released in mid-March.
What do you think? Is this collection for you?
