Disney & Sephora Cinderella Collection: Moonlit Kiss Lipsticks

Hey again guys and girls. Got another Cinderella review for you all today - even though I thought my last one wasn't very popular because its not very easily accessible in the UK you all seemed to enjoy it so I thought i'd pop up reviews on the others bits I got!


One of the most exciting things about the collection was the 4 Cinderella themed lipsticks, 4 wonderful girly colours with something for everyone and perfectly themed colours I actually imagine Cinderella would wear! 


First of all - packaging. The lipsticks come housed in a box, encased in a velvet type material. Very luxurious looking and practical as it provides the perfect place to store them and stops them rattling around in transit. Again, I absolutely love the theming. All around the edge of the box is subtle hints to the movie. I can't stop looking at it and finding all the little secret illustations hidden amongst the golden pattern. 


The top of the box features the quote - " You don't need magic to have a magical kiss" - So cute!

The back of the box again reeks of Cinderella. I love how the Sephora and Disney team were able to create something that is grown up enough to appeal to adults but still has that "disney" element to it. The back of the box shows the four colours of lipstick in little glass slipper icons, which I thought was a lovely touch. Everything down to the barcode has a little bit of Cinderella-ness to it!



The lipsticks themselves are housed in a plastic bullet although it looks like metal and looks a lot more expensive than it feels. The actual feel of it is very tinny, almost the sort of material that would easily dent if I was to drop it or even bite it - it would leave toothmarks (not that I'm biting it by any means, just an example to show you how thin the plastic is). In my hand it doesn't feel as nice as say... a MAC lipstick but regardless, I like the little leafing design and how it doesn't look too Disney. There is a little pumpkin carriage on the top of the lipstick and the base has the shade name, although it is pretty hard to see!



Close up of the patterning. 

As you can see - the name of the lipstick is on the base but its very hard to see with all those numbers going across. 



Onto the actual lipsticks themselves - 




Lady Tremaine look quite frightening in the bullet but actually went on a lovely berry colour. I thought I'd never be able to pull off something quite so vampy and dark but on the lips its very inoffensive and wearable. The texture is quite dry when putting it on, but on the lips it feels creamy and comfortable.  It lasted about 4 hours fully before dulling down to a stain. The stain lasted on my lips a full 10 hours and was a very pretty berry pink colour. I really liked the effect it gave and didn't leave that "ring" that some lipsticks can.
Dupes: MAC Rebel is seems like Lady Tremaine's more pigmented older sister Guerlain Bee is also very similar but more pigmented. 



Who is She? is a very creamy easy to wear everyday pink. Its very neutral and girly but still completely covers the natural lip colour. It is so girly and pretty, I find myself wearing this a lot as its suitable for both work and play. Inoffensive to the eye yet flattering and noticeable at the same time. It had probably the nicest formula of all the lipsticks, creamy to put on and comfortable on the lips. I would compare the formula to MAC's cremesheen as it leaves a lovely glossy feel to the lips.
Dupes: Although I don't own it, Dior Addict lipstick in  DiorKiss looks very very similar even down the finish it gives. Rimmel Apocalips in Celestial is also very similar. 




Pumpkin is probably my favourite of the lot. It is a very pretty coral peach shade that to me, just screams summer. I can't wait to wear this more on holiday. It isn't drying on the lips but I find a common thing with all of these lipsticks is they aren't creamy to apply. If you have MAC Ruby Woo you'll know what I mean. They are creamy and comfortable on the lips however and wears for about 4 hours. It is one of those shades that does show up every little dry patch though!
Dupes: MAC Reel Sexy is almost spot on, however that is limited edition. if you don't have that in your stashes, Sleek Peaches and Cream is also very very close. MAC Jazzed and Ever Hip are again, very very similar but limited edition.




My Moment has a dry texture and feels like more of a matte when you are putting it on. It did have a tendency to pull and tug on my lips and I'd say its very close to MAC Ruby Woo in terms of how it feels to put on. On the lips I did find it drying but nothing a bit of lipbalm couldn't sort out. My Moment was probably the sheerest of the four. It didn't appear to have any real colour, instead it was more glittery than anything else. I did like the effect but I can't see myself using it very often as it has a gritty sort of feel to the lips and didn't provide "that" much to my lips. I did think it was pretty though and very Cinderella. 
Dupes: None that I can think of although the closest would be MAC Whirls & Twirls part of their 2011 holiday collection. 

Overall I really like the set and am glad I ebayed this when I had the chance as its quite rare to come by now but worth checking if you want these. 
As far as I can tell these are unscented and have no taste. This is great for people who dislike the vanilla taste/scent that almost all lipsticks have. The lipsticks are nice for everyday wear and generally pretty inoffensive but still unique to my collection as I don't own any of the dupes I mentioned. I do think the formula is pretty disappointed and something Sephora would need to work on as they do run a little dry and tug on the lip. 

If you are in the US, I hear these are still being sold in some stores, so worth checking in yours to see if they still have it in stock, as it is currently gone from the website. Other than that, scour ebay! 

What do you think? Will you be picking up any of the dupes I mentioned?

  4. These look amazing. Do Sephora ship to the UK? I would love to add every single one of these shades to my Lipstick Collection :D

    I agree with Gem - your swatches are awesome. I keep trying to showcase lippies on my own lips but I did a better quality camera and a steadier hand I think!

  16. Oh these are so pretty! I don't have these :( I'm not big on lip products so I'm okay with not having them, I guess.... (Maybe I'm trying to convince myself?) I love the range of colors that the set offers. I agree that they put in a lot of thought into the packaging. Beautiful!
    You do such a wonderful job with your reviews! I look forward to reading more!
