Sephora & Disney's Cinderella Collection: Stroke of Midnight Compact Mirror

Hey guys and girls. Another review of the Disney Cinderella and Sephora collaboration. Today I am going to be reviewing a GORGEOUS piece in the collection - the Compact Mirror.
You might find it odd to review a mirror, but it is the last thing in the collection I have to review so I thought I may as well finish what I started. I knew as soon as I saw the mirror I had to have it, mainly because can you believe I don't actually own a mirror for my handbag! I often use my phone (classy lady) so this was something I actually needed so justified the purchase (which was pre-spending ban by the way). 




Again with all this collection, the packaging is just gorgeous with small hints of Cinderella detailed around the floral embroidery. The top of the box says "Time for your moment" making you feel truly princessy. The cutest thing is the barcode at the back, in the design of the Fairy Godmother creating the pumpkin carriage. Such a cute original touch.







The mirror is in the design of what I would describe, a pocketwatch, with a small push button that opens it. It has a very vintage feel to it and upon looking at it, you wouldn't even think its Disney as it is no way "Cinderella" looking in the slightest. I was shocked at how heavy it was and how sturdy it feels, it feels like it would cost a bomb when in actual fact it was $25 on the Sephora website.





The design on the front (apart from resembling a watch) has a small icon in the middle of Cinderella's castle - the only "Cinderella" thing about it, perfect for those secret lovers of Disney who may not want to get out a Disney mirror in front of people. The design is very shiny, holographic and eye catching while still remaining classy, ladylike and magical. 




The mirror itself is really nice. There is a normal side and a zoomed side which makes it extremely practical to take out and about. The normal mirror has a quote written across it which I absolutely adore - "time for your moment...". Who doesn't want to open a gorgeous compact mirror and see that quote while checking their make up. I feel like a true lady or even a Princess every time I use this mirror as silly as that sounds. I read the quote and feel motivated, I feel prettier, I feel like yes, it really IS my moment. Is that silly that a mirror can do that? I don't care :)






The annoying thing with a mirror so beautiful and shiny, is it does get fingerprints all over it. With my OCD over this mirror I am constantly buffing away any little smudges and it kind of discourages me from using it as I want to keep it perfect!


At the moment, the mirrors in these collections are selling like hotcakes. I believe out of everything this was the first to go on the Sephora website and they are now selling on eBay for so much more. However they are available by the plenty, so its worth checking out to see if you can grab it for a steal! 


What compact mirror do you have? Can't believe I never owned one 'til now!

  12. I almost didn't let myself read this. It's too pretty and too gorgeous. I want Sephora to come out with another collection so I can snatch up every piece, or at least the mirror! They seriously outdid themselves and I love how much thought went into it! Agh, SO PWETTY <3_<3

  14. The hours are marked by roman numerals and are raised from the surface. In the center is an outline of the castle. At 12 is an outline of a glass slipper, not entirely sure what is at 3, at 6 is her fairy godmother and at 9 is the prince and cinderella. My wife didn't need a mirror but I am so glad he love it and huge fan of sephora discount codes

  15. Hello!

    I'm going to apologize ahead of time because I wanted to email privately but I couldn't find any information, but I've actually been looking for it for a long time and was wondering if you'd sell? Most places I've looked only have them NIB but I don't care much about if it's super scratched up or not and am willing to pay for shipping as well.

    Otherwise, no worries and thanks for any response!
