Cinderella Storylook Eyeshadow Palette
Cinderella Storylook Eyeshadow Palette

This is Better Than a Fairy Tale

This is part two of the review for the  Cinderella Storylook Eyeshadow Palette ($55.00 for 0.70 oz.), which focuses on the next ten eyeshadows in the palette.  To read a review of the palette overall as well as the wear, read part one.

Gus Gus is described as a “gold shimmer.” It’s a bright sunshine yellow with a golden shimmer and sheen–the finish is fairly frosted. The color payoff was excellent, and the texture was smooth and soft. OCC Triptych is darker. Urban Decay Honey is darker, more molten. Bare Escentuals Remix is not as yellow. MAC Goldmine is a smidgen more orange.

Charming is described as a “nude pearl.” It’s a warm champagne with a hint of yellow and a frosted, metallic finish. The pigmentation was right-on, and this shade was soft and smooth. Make Up For Ever #101 is not quite as warm. MAC Nylon is similar. MAC Femme-fi is a little less frosted. Tarina Tarantino Fantastical is similar but less metallic.

Chateau is described as a “brown shimmer.” It’s a medium-dark red-toned brown with a frosted sheen. The payoff was excellent and true-to-pan, while the texture was smooth and finely-milled. NARS Flowers 3 is more matte. Urban Decay Stray Dog is less warm. Illamasqua Focus is similar. Benefit Dandy Brandy is similar, not quiet as red-toned. Urban Decay YDK is very close.

Palace is described as a “rose gold shimmer.” It’s a soft brown-ish beige with a frosted sheen. Again, the color payoff here was true-to-pan, while the texture was smooth and soft. Dolce & Gabbana Cinnamon is less warm. Tarina Tarantino Fantastical is similar. theBalm Stand-offish is barely lighter. Chanel Beige Lame is more matte. Giorgio Armani #9 is more metallic.

Drizella is described as a “medium brown golden shimmer.” It’s a coppery bronze with a metallic sheen. The pigmentation was lovely, and the texture felt like silk. This shade is fairly dupeable by shades like Tarina Tarantino Amber, Urban Decay Half Baked, Make Up For Ever #12, and MAC Amber Lights.

Cinders is described as a “black with gold glitter.” This is a dark brown-toned black with gold sparkle. The finish is satiny. When I tested this on the eye, it was incredibly pigmented–a light hand is recommended! Bobbi Brown Black Gold is similar. Tarina Tarantino Dreamy is similar but has more coppered shimmer. MAC Legendary Black is softer. Milani Melange has more gold shimmer.

Jaq is described as a “mauve matte gold shimmer.” It’s a burgundy-tinged brown with a frosted finish. It had good color payoff, and it applied easily and smoothly. Urban Decay Muse is more matte. Urban Decay Barlust is more red-toned. MAC Twilight Falls is grayer. theBalm Caught in the Act Courtney is more burgundy.

Midnight is described as a “midnight blue with light blue glitter.” It’s a blackened navy blue with blue shimmer and sparkle. It had good color payoff and was fairly smooth to apply. Urban Decay Occupy is bluer, lighter. theBalm The Stroke is more matte. Bare Escentuals Shaken Not Stirred is darker. Make Up For Ever #147 is similar.

A Wish is described as a “cream pearl.” It is a soft beige with a satiny finish. The color is true-to-pan and applied smoothly. Urban Decay Anonymous is warmer. theBalm Adagio is similar but matte. MAC Brule is also similar but matte. Urban Decay Kinky is very similar, but it does have a matte finish.

Rococo is described as a “plum with multi-glitter.” It is a plummy burgundy with a satiny sheen. While I saw sparkle in the pan, it did not seem to translate to the swatch or the eye. The color was nicely pigmented, and it wasn’t powdery. Chanel Ebloui is more shimmery. Bare Escentuals Kismet is browner. Bare Escentuals Most Requested is less plum. theBalm Moderato is more matte. theBalm Sexy is darker.

  1. I think I did all of my gushing for this palette in our part one post. I was very surprised with the quality of the eye shadows given Sephora’s bad reputation for in-house eye shadow and some of Disney’s makeup snafus. If Urban Decay Vice palette is my night/party set, Disney Cinderella Storylook is my day/work set. Both are great, just in different ways =D

    I really wish they named one of the green shades Gus Gus. The color itself is lovely. It’s impossible to find a nice yellow gold eyeshadow that doesn’t make you look jaundiced.

  2. Looks great, especially the packaging looks really pretty. But it is good to hear that the eyeshadow itself is worth it, too.

  3. I passed on this as I love the shades but what I really like was the box mostly and got the UD VICE palette as the shade spoke to me more in that one when I got it Sunday in store. Plus the there is only a $2 diffrenct in Canadian fund on these This palette goes for $66CAN while the UD VICE goes for $68CAN. I’m not sure why the higher markup on this palette?

    And it’s NICE to see Sephora upping the eyeshadow formula game since the Primal Instincts Eyeshadow Palette that just came out as well. ;)

    I NEVER buy in house products from Sephora, but my God does this palette look amazing!I’ve never been a fan of princesses, but this is making me rethink it! I have MORE makeup then I’ll need in years, but I want this now!

  5. Wow. I guess sephora has been stepping up their game

    Really really lovely. Such a shame we don’t have this in the UK but I probably have enough eyeshadow to last 5 lifetimes. The packaging is really well done. Wish other brands would be so thorough with collab packaging

    If I didn’t already have many simplar shades I would pick this up in a heart beat. Stunning palette

  8. I’m so pleasantly surprised at this! I figured it would be good, but not THAT good! It actually looks like a potentially better option than Vice to me, too.

  9. Tiffani

    The colors in this are really beautiful, but I feel like I have other shades that are really really close to everything here. If I didn’t, though, I would definitely consider picking this up. The blues are lovely.

  10. I really like it when you take pics of the product at every angle….this also lets me see where it is made in. And to put your hand on it, gives us a good idea the size of the box…

  11. I was convinced that this would be another gimmicky cute collection, but I’m so excited to see that the shadows are actually pigmented and good quality too! :)

    What a shame we can’t get this in Australia! If it were permanent, I would consider picking it up whenever I eventually head Stateside. Large palettes don’t usually appeal to me, but this… I can see the versatility and all the different looks, and the packaging doesn’t hurt, either!

    Liking the new “Temptalia Recommends” sign!

    Do you know if Sephora will be doing a Jasmine collection? I would LOVE to see what colors they come up with!

    • Emily

      I think this collaboration with Sephora is in honor of Disney’s recent release of the Cinderella Diamond Edition on Bluray and DVD. Their next big release is going to be Peter Pan in February and The Little Mermaid next October. Maybe they’ll do a Tinkerbell or Little Mermaid collection?

    • Kae

      The sale’s associate at my local Sephora told me a Jasmine collection was in the works and is due out in February. But who knows, they might be releasing other characters instead first as stated in the other comments.

  15. Wow this looks awesome!! Mostly because it has some matte colors! Finally a palette with some matter colors and transition colors!! Great swatches!

  16. I have a feeling that a lot of these are repackaged Kat Von D shadows. Cinders looks exactly like one of my favs, Tijuana!

  17. lol, Gus Gus! Cutest name ever, because I hear him saying it in my head…and it’s a pretty shade, too!

  18. Both looks you propose are very nice !!!

    If you had to choose between this Disney palette and Urban Decay’s palette which one would you choose? Which one is more versatile?
