Beautifully Disney Curiouser and Curiouser Mini Lipstick Set Review & Swatches
So as normal scheduling resumes (I am back to posting Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays... although I am aware this is a day late!) I thought I would kick back off with a Beautifully Disney review! Way back in May, the beautiful and kind Amy from Paintpotted (who also did my new blog design... swanky eh??) bought me back a little present from her escapade to Disney World - this lovely little lipstick set from Beautifully Disney, which as you know I am OBSESSED with.
The Curiouser and Curiouser lipstick set is part of their Alice in Wonderland collection and features a beautiful design by Jeff Granito who's Instagram you can find here
. He did a wonderful job because the design is my favourite yet. Featuring cutesy renditions of our favourite characters, the collection as a whole is positively to die for.
As you can see the lipsticks are minis and minis they are indeed! I was suprised at how small they were, but more in a cute way. They are perfectly pocket sized and don't take up much room in your handbag or even purse at all. I'm thinking of putting one in my work jacket pocket! The feel of them is kinda cheap, but I can look past that.
How do the lipsticks perform though? That's important right?! Well I was very impressed with the shade range, featuring an exciting vivid summery orange and deep dark red (very Queen of Hearts) The other two shades provide options for the less adventurous, with an everyday creamy rose shade and something sheer for daytime wear. But generally the overall application of the lipsticks let me down. I'll break them down individually.
While the shades are hit and miss, it is a solid set of lipsticks which I think would be great for the non lipstick lover who wants to dip their toes into lipstick territory. I myself will be taking a couple of the shades away with me. Dum de dum was the worst of the lot, but don't let that put you off. I feel like good lip preparation is key!
If interested in purchasing this little set, you can either get a very lovely friend to bring you one back from their travels or purchase directly from Disney here. The set will set you back $25 which I do think is rather pricey for what are quote average mini lipsticks, but the artwork is just so adorable, how can you not?!
