ELF Beauty and the Beast Collection

Beauty and the Beast has always been my favorite Disney movie. Belle loves to read (like me), and sees past outward appearances for the person within. I've just recently started getting into ELF, so when I found out they released a Beauty and the Beast Collection I ran to my Walgreens (I believe it's exclusive to there and forthcoming to Drugstore.com). They've done other Disney collaborations in the past but I missed out on those. In addition to the makeup, they also have gorgeous inexpensive makeup bags. I can't find the collection online right now, but I know it's in stores. All items were under $10.



Blush/Highlight/Contour Palette. This might be my favorite product from the collection. The bronzer is surprisingly not orange and great for warming up the face. The blush could stand to be a little more pigmented, but my favorite is the highlight, which isn't frosty at all. It's the most pigmented and adds luminousity.
Eyeshadow Palette. I debated getting this, because wasn't sure how often I would use the top colors, but I'm actually really impressed. They're decently pigmented and I love the middle shades for a golden, Belle-esque eye look.
Cream Colors in Beauty and Beast. Again, I kind of just bought these for the packaging. I prefer Beast, as it's my favorite kind of purpley taupe shade which is more pigmented than Belle, a golden color. I like to use them as a base to the eyeshadow palette but they also work well on their own.
Lipgloss. This is the least impressive item from the collection -- it's a simple lip gloss that doesn't do much for me. It's not bad per se, and it was the least expensive item I bought, but in addition to the unimpressive item, it also has the least impressive packaging.

Eyeshadow Swatches

L-R: Beauty, Beast, Bronzer, Blush, Highlight, Lip Gloss

Have you tried anything from ELF Disney collections? I'm kind of regretting not getting a makeup bag but I definitely don't need any more.
