CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR DISNEY LOVERS (BLOGMAS – DAY TWO)

If you’re anything like me then Disney is something you will have clung to like a comfort blanket made of nostalgia since childhood (and show no sign of letting it go anytime soon).

As my passion for the beauty industry has grown one of my favourite things to do is discover collaborations that really light a fire within me and it just so happens that they are usually of the Disney variety.

So if this sounds like someone you know (or even just yourself, I won’t judge!) then stick around because I’m about to make your Christmas shopping a whole lot easier!

Beauty Bay

A collaboration with a twist if ever there was one. This modern take on some of my favourite classic Disney movies has me more excited than ever to pass on my passion to a younger generation.

Created in collaboration with Disney Colour, our new makeup collection is here to help you bring the classic Disney films to life. The Disney Colour and BEAUTY BAY collection has been inspired by the original colours from some of the most iconic Disney films, allowing you to create makeup looks that will help you bring your favourite scenes into your reality.

With a multitude of products to choose from (but why choose when you can have them all?) it’s hard to pick a favourite.

Spectrum Collections

Spectrum Collections are just as famous for their stunning Disney collaborations as they are for creating innovative yet stylish brushes and I’m so here for it.

The spectrum sisters (Sophie & Hannah) are constantly surprising us with their dreamy visions of all things Disney and I find myself constantly on the edge of my seat looking forward to their next drop.

I Heart Revolution

Last year I Heart Revolution released their very first Disney Princess Collection (with the spotlight on Cinderella, Belle and Tiana) and since there have gone from strength to strength with an ever expanding line of magical products for for royalty.

From eyeshadow and lip toppers to highlighters and lashes this collaboration really does have that something special. It’ll have you digging out your favourite Disney movies in no time.

Mad Beauty

Mad Beauty are a relatively new obsession for me but that doesn’t make them any less magical!

The brand are famous for their huge array of collaborative products based on your favourite movies and tv series (and you all know how I feel about Friends).

Their Disney lines are unique in the sense that our favourite villains get just as much of a look in. They also boast incredible collections of Star Wars products too so there really is something for everyone.

Morphe

Morphie can be a bit hit and miss for me but if there’s one thing they do right it’s capturing the aesthetic of a collaboration perfectly.

The Mickey and friends collection is artsy bold and super cute. A must have for any Disney fan.

Urban Decay

Urban decay have been my guilty pleasure ever since I started on my make up journey roughly 10 years ago now. They were the first higher rent brand I ever spent money on and just hold a really special place in my heart.

If you know anything about me then you’ll know I am a Marvel fanatic and the new Eternals collaboration just screams decadence at me.

It’s pricey but it damn sure looks luxurious.

Catrice Cosmetics

Catrice are the type of friend you just know you can rely on to release products that are going to get the job done. Their new Disney collection has just hit the nail on the head with its cute aesthetic spot on shade times.

I guess objectively it might be a little bit on the childish side but if grown-up vibes of what you want I think you’re reading the wrong blog.

Wet Brush

I don’t know how many hairbrushes are too many hairbrushes but to be honest I don’t want to know the answer.

Wet brush have fast become my favourite every day hair tool brand and I pretty much have one of their brushes in every room in my house at this point.

I love the fact they Disney releases all have a completely different feel from a poor part aesthetic to cottage core fairytale dream vibes.

To be honest I just think it justifies having as many as I do.

Ciaté

When I’m having a really rough day I try and channel Edna Mode and to be honest that usually does the trick. She doesn’t suffer fools and neither should you.

This collection is colourful vibrant and just the thing to pick you up on these dreary and dark winter days. A pop of colour in the waterline does wonders for the soul.

Essence Cosmetics

Last but not least we have my old faithful Essence Cosmetics and their Disney Princess Collection.

Yes it’s simple and just a bit basic but to be honest if you want something that screams Disney without a luxury pricetag then you’re headed in the right direction.

He also can’t deny Essence products are just a bit bloody brilliant. Like have you tried their mascara?!

I hope I’ve managed to fill your Disney gift quota for today and you managed to find something special. Let me know if you pick anything up or if you find some Disney releases of your own.

I HEART REVOLUTION X DISNEY BELLE COLLECTION REVIEW (BLOGTOBER – DAY EIGHTEEN)

Tale as old as time…

Mrs. Potts, Beauty and the Beast

Last week I featured the I Heart Revolution x Disney Princess Snow White Collection and what a love fest that was!

I actually purchased the Belle Collection last year when it was first released but this blog didn’t exist then so here we are.

This collections feels like it was pulled straight out of my heart, If I had a kindred spirit within the animated world then it’d be Belle.

I want adventure in the great wide somewhere! I want it more than I can tell!

Belle, Beauty and the Beast

The collection consists of…

I Heart Revolution Disney Fairytale Books Palette Belle – £15

I Heart Revolution Disney Fairytale Books Heart Highlighter Belle – £8

I Heart Revolution Disney Fairytale Books Lashes Belle – £8

I Heart Revolution Disney Fairytale Books Lip Topper Belle – £5

The face products included in the palette are arguably my favourite part with a selection of subtle blushes that really bring everything to life but the Belle Lip Topper is just something a bit special and would be perfect for adding a little bit of sparkle to your look this Christmas so I’m here for it.

Just as affordable as the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs collection with a similar line of products, it’s definitely worth picking them both up if you a collector!

Each aspect of the collection truly captures the essence of what the film meant to me as a child. It’s magical, elegant and full of bold choices. I can’t wait to collect more from the collaboration!

Take it with you so you’ll always have a way to look back… and remember me.

I HEART REVOLUTION X DISNEY PRINCESS SNOW WHITE COLLECTION REVIEW (BLOGTOBER – DAY NINE)

Lips red as the rose, hair black as ebony, skin white as snow.

Magic Mirror, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Once upon a time there was a little girl with hair black as ebony, skin white as snow and a serious aversion to most fake tans.

She was also incapable of ever growing up and cherished the memories of the many Disney VHS tapes her mother bought her at car boot sales.

Among her favourites was Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Snow White was kind and beautiful. She allowed the girl to feel comfortable in her own skin by showing her that not all princesses looked the same and even she could be considered beautiful.

…and so, decades later a collection was released and the girl rejoiced.

All was well again and she lived happily ever after…

Have you ever seen a more incredible interpretation of a classic before? I’ve been a fan of the I Heart Revolution Disney collections since release but this one holds a special place in my heart.

Magic Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?

Evil Queen, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

The concept is simple yet striking and keeps things traditional with magical fairytale themes.

When hearts are high the time will fly, so whistle while you work.

Snow White, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

She’s beautiful, just like an angel.

Bashful, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

The collection consists of…

I Heart Revolution Disney Fairytale Books Palette Snow White – £15

I Heart Revolution Disney Fairytale Books Mini Palette Seven Dwarfs – £8

I Heart Revolution Disney Fairytale Books Apple Highlighter Snow White – £8

I Heart Revolution Disney Fairytale Books Lip Topper Snow White – £5

I feel like some subtle fluttery lashes would have really helped to finish capture that Snow White essence beautifully but other than that I have no complaints. Each product is so pretty.

I Heart Revolution thoroughly understood the assignment with this one!

… and then he will carry me away to his castle, where we will live happily ever after.
