Catrice and Essence Disney Princess collections

Today I have a joined Catrice and Essence Disney Princess collections haul to share with you. The two brands did this sister collab a little while back, and it’s Disney so of course I had to pick up most of the items from the collections. Let’s start with Catrice and then transition in to Essence.

Both collections came with three eyeshadow palettes. The Catrice collection consists of the following three palettes; Ariel 010 Treasure The Moment, Belle 020 Beauty Is Found Within, and Pocahontas 030 Follow Your Own Path.

Here’s a closer look at the three Catrice eyeshadow palettes in the order mentioned above. They’re all quite neutral, but I like the different finishes and textures of the shadows.

The collection only came with two highlighter palettes; the Ariel 010 Live Your Dream and the Belle 020 Never Give Up. They’re both very pretty.

The Catrice collection also included three different face serums. The Ariel 010 Down Where It’s Wetter contains hibiscus extract, the Belle 020 Broke The Spell contains rose water, and the Pocahontas 030 Natural Spirit contains sunflower extract.

I love the packaging of the lip balms. They’re glittery, tinted lip balms and there’s one for each of the three princesses featured in the collection; Ariel 010 Seashell Pearls, Belle 020 Free Spirit, and Pocahontas 030 Sheer Willow.

Both the Catrice and the Essence collections included a mascara. The one from Catrice is the Belle Glam & Doll False Lashes mascara, and the one from Essence is the I LOVE EXTREME Rapunzel crazy volume mascara. The packaging on both mascaras is so cute.

And now on to the rest of the Essence products. Their three princesses are Rapunzel, Jasmine, and Mulan. The palettes are called Rapunzel 01 Let Your Hair Down, Jasmine 02 Can’t Keep Me Down, and Mulan 03 True To Your Heart.

Here’s a closer look at the three Essence eyeshadow palettes in the order mentioned above. Initially, I was the most excited about the colour story in the Jasmine palette, but I actually liked the Mulan palette the best. The rusty, orangy colours were actually quite nice.

The last items in the Essence collection were brushes. I picked up the face powder brush in Mulan and the blender brush in Jasmine, and I really like both of these brushes. The quality is really good for the price, and they look super cute.

Matte three colour

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. Sometimes, I like to do these matte three colour eye looks to mix it up, and I really like this red, blue, and yellow combo.

Collective haul (November/December 2021)

It’s time for a collective haul. This haul includes clothes, accessories, and make-up, and I purchased these items in November or December last year.

I only have a few clothing pieces to share with you. The denim dress is (funnily enough) from the brand Only, and you’ve already seen me wear this in a couple of outfit posts. The checkered jeans are from The Ragged Priest, and the tights are from Calzedonia, which has become one of my favourite brands for tights. I really like the quality and the colour selection.

Last summer, I purchased a handbag from the brand Silfen, and I really like that bag, so when I found these three bags from the same brand on sale (I got a really good deal on them), I couldn’t decide which one to get, so I got all three.

Let’s move on to make-up. It’s so difficult to get a good picture of the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder due to the shiny packaging. I got the powder in the shade 1 Fair, and this might be a very expensive powder, but it’s also a really great one.

From Wet n Wild I picked up the Fantasy Makers highlighter in Halo Effect and the Fantasy Makers blusher in Exit Stage Left. The highlighter is a very pretty pink shade, but the blush is nothing special in my opinion.

I also purchased a back-up of the Rimmel The Multi-Tasker concealer, which I love, and then I decided to try out the Pixi +Rose Glow-y powder in Rose Dew. I’m not quite sure how I feel about it though. I can’t figure out whether to use it as a blush/blush topper or a highlighter.

Last, but most certainly not least, I got the Anastasia Beverly Hills NORVINA pro pigment palette vol. 5. This is the only NORVINA pro pigment palette I own, but this purple/neutral colour story is just so pretty, and I do really enjoy using this palette.

Green on boots and eyes

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. There was a bit of green in my cowboy boots, so I decided to do green eye make-up to match and to bring a bit more colour to the whole look.

(Base: primer – Essence Skin Lovin’ Sensitive primer, foundation – L’Oréal Paris True Match Nude plumping tinted serum (shade: 0,5-2 Very Light), concealers – L’Oréal Infaillible More Than Concealer (shade: 322 Ivory) + Essence Skin Lovin’ Sensitive concealer (shade: 05 Fair), powders – e.l.f.

Blue and red

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I love a blue eye look. Especially paired with a nude, brown, or red lip.

Green brown duochrome

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. It had been quite a while since I’d last done a green brown duochrome make-up look, but I had both a pigment and a lipstick lying around which were perfect for that kind of look, and I had a lot of fun doing my make-up that day.

(Base: primer – Essence Skin Lovin’ Sensitive primer, foundation – e.l.f. Cosmetics Camo CC Cream (shade: Fair 120N), concealers – L’Oréal Infaillible More Than Concealer (shade: 322 Ivory) + Nars Radiant Creamy concealer (shade: Vanilla), powder – Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish powder (shade: 1 Fair). Face make-up: bronzer – RMS Beauty Buriti bronzer, blusher – Natasha Denona Glam face palette Light (shade: Cream Blush), highlighter – Natasha Denona Glam face palette Light (shade: Star Glow).

MAC x L collection

Last autumn, I picked up four items from the MAC x L collection. I absolutely love the purple glitter packaging!

Here’s what the inside of the eyeshadow palette looks like. I would say that it’s a neutral palette with pops of pink and purple. I think it’s very pretty, and some of the shadows have some interesting finishes.

I had to pick up the Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Show Gold (permanent shade), even though I have the shade in a palette from a previous holiday collection. I mean, just look at that beautiful flower embossing! The shade is really stunning too. The powder blush is in the shade Melba, which is also a permanent shade, and I do have it in a split pan blush duo, but I’m not the biggest fan of split pan products, so I wouldn’t mind having Melba as a stand alone blush.

The last product I picked up from this collection (this time around) was the Powder Kiss liquid lipcolour in the shade Sorry Not Sorry, and it’s a pretty pumpkin/burned orange shade. I really like the Powder Kiss formulas; both this liquid version and the bullet lipstick one.

Citrus fruits

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I wanted to match my eye look to my jumper and ended up with the colour scheme of citrus fruits.

(Base: primers – Tarte Timeless Smoothing primer + MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance Illuminating Base (shade: Radiant Yellow), foundation – Maybelline Dream Urban Cover foundation (shade: 100 Warm Ivory), concealers – Rimmel The Multi-Tasker concealer (shade: 020 Fair) + NYX Born To Glow radiant concealer (shade: Pale), powders – Essence Brighten Up! Banana powder in 10 Bababanana + Dior Backstage Face & Body Powder-No-Powder in 0 Neutral. Face make-up: bronzer – Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Bronzer in Sun Kissed, blusher – Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush in 01 Fuego Flush, highlighter – RMS Beauty Living Luminizer. Eye make-up: base – MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly, eyeshadows – Jeffree Star Cosmetics Jawbreaker palette (shades: Virgin + Sour + Orange Juice + Lemon Drop + Jawbreaker), mascaras – Maybelline Colossal mascara + MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash mascara, eyeliners – NYX Vivid Brights eyeliner in She Bang + LA Girl Shockwave Neon Liner (shade: Screamin’). Eyebrows: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze + Maybelline Brow Ultra Slim pencil in Medium Brown. Lips: Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour liquid lipstick in Coral Fixation)
