Disney Jasmine Storylook Palette
Disney Jasmine Storylook Palette

Disney Jasmine Storylook Palette ($55.00 for 0.79 oz.) contains both eyeshadows and cheek products all housed in a slide-out palette. I’ve split the review into two parts, and this one features the remaining five eyeshadows as well as the blush and bronzer. You can read part one for the first ten eyeshadows.

Lapis is a darkened blue with a hint of green (just enough to make it slightly teal around the edges) and a mostly matte finish. Like Blue Oasis, it was incredibly powdery, which contributed to sheerer color and excessive fall out. This color was more buildable, but it is still fast to fade. Milani Olympian Blue is bluer, brighter. Illamasqua Burst is tealer. Urban Decay Haight is close in color but frosted.

Mystical Wonder is a medium-dark violet purple with blue undertones and a frosted finish. It had so-so pigmentation–not totally sheer but definitely not opaque. It was a little dry in texture. Urban Decay Blue Bus is darker. MAC Blue Orbit is bluer and lighter.

Rajah is a brightened, medium orange with a softer, golden oraneg shimmer-sheen over a pearly finish. It had fantastic color payoff with a soft, smooth feel and application. MAC Chessa is quite a bit lighter. MAC Fresh Daily isn’t as bold/bright. MAC Rule is more muted and matte.

Arabian Sunset is an orange-red with a golden sparkle and sheen. This shade was powdery, and the gold sparkle doesn’t bind with the actual color, so it mostly ends up underneath the eye or stuck between your brush’s bristles. Guerlain Coup de Foudre #2 is lighter. Guerlain Terra Azzurra #3 is redder. MAC Dynamo is more muted.

Bazaar is a warm-toned, medium brown with strong orange/tan undertones and a satin finish. It had decent pigmentation but was somewhat powdery. Inglot #357 is darker and matte. MAC Soft Brown is less orange and matte. MAC Tete-a-tint is a bit lighter and matte. Urban Decay Beware is a touch darker, less warm-toned.

Thrilling Chase is a reddened plum with very subtle golden shimmer that translates as a barely-there sheen. It has more of a satin-finish as a result. The color payoff is amazing–super intense and rich–with a soft, buttery texture that’s very blendable. NARS 413 BLKR is a cream product, but it is still rather similar (no gold shimmer). NARS Seduction is a touch darker, but if you go with a lighter application, it’s hard to tell on. bareMinerals The Indecent Proposal is more plum, less reddened. MAC Stratus is a touch more muted and has a stronger sheen. It’s also similar to NARS Mounia, just warmer, and to NARS Oasis, which is slightly less red (more plum).

Golden Sands is a warm, orange-toned, medium-dark brown with a golden-copper frosted finish. Like the blush, the color was nicely pigmented, and the texture was soft, smooth, and easily to apply and blend. It is very frosted, though, and as a result, does emphasize pores and imperfections in skin texture. I see this being a love/hate product for some, since it may be too orange/warm for them. Wet ‘n’ Wild Carnaval in Rio is darker, less shimmery. Estee Lauder Topaz Chameleon is darker, browner. Guerlain Terracotta Mosaic browner, less shimmery.

For an in-depth review on the products, please refer to part one. As a summary: the palette is good but not fantastic–Sephora didn’t knock this one out of the park, and for me, the Cinderella Storylook palette was better and more consistent. Jasmine’s palette suffered from some powderiness in a handful of shades, which then created problems with color payoff, wear (fading), and/or blendability.

B+
The palette has a few shades that miss the mark, though the majority of the palette is good overall. With the problematic shades, powdery textures, some fading during wear, and lack of color payoff were noted. The blush/bronzer actually out-perform all of the other products in terms of pigmentation, texture, and wear.
