Disney Snow White Collection by Elf- 'The Fairest of Them All'

Hello!! A few posts ago I did a review on the Disney Ariel makeup collection by Elf. Today I am going to share and review what I picked up from the Elf Snow White collection! 

I was so excited when I saw that Elf released another Disney collection of makeup exclusive to Walgreens! I really hope Elf continues to make these sets, because as I mentioned before, I am a Disney freak. 
This collection is called The Fairest of Them All, and it contains 6 sets and a ton of makeup bags. There is a large palette called The Beauty Book (similar to the Ariel one), a smaller eye palette, a blush and bronzer duo, a lip set, eye lashes, and a makeup brush set.  I picked up the two palettes and the blush/bronzer duo. 

I'm going to include pictures, swatches, and a short review for all the sets I got. 

The Fairest of Them All Beauty Book- $10
The packaging is beautiful, just like the Ariel one. I feel like this one is really elegant looking with the all white background and red and white detailing. 

This palette has 7 eyeshadows, the elf eye primer, a pencil liner, a blush, a small brush, and a lip gloss. I accidentally cut off the lip gloss in this picture (fail). You can kind of see it in the picture before this one and in the swatches below.  

Here are swathes of the shadows. The first three are the top row, and the last four on the bottom row. This is with no primer underneath. 

Here is the blush and the lip gloss. 

My thoughts- 
I thought the pigmentation of these eyeshadows were really nice. They were buttery and also blended really well when I put them on my eyes. I did not use the primer or the pencil liner yet. The lip gloss is super pigmented, but since I'm not a fan of red I didn't try it on. I am really impressed by the blush in the palette as well! It's also really pigmented and applies really nice and smooth to the skin. I love the peachy color for summer. 

The look I created 
I basically just did neutrals with dark navy color on my lower lash line. 

Smaller Eye Palette- $5
This palette had 6 eyeshadows and a mascara. 


My Thoughts-
I found these shadows to have pretty good pigmentation just like the story book palette. They were slightly more chalky, but nothing that you can't work with. I especially liked the brown/neutral colors in this palette. The mascara was okay, it gave my lashes really great volume and curl but not much length. I might do a full review on it later so you can see how it looks. 

The look I created 
For this one I did another neutral look, with a darker outter corner and the green and blue under my lower lash line.  I was really liking this look I did and I preferred it over the one I did with the storybook palette. 

Blush and Broner Duo- $5

I love the packaging on this one, and the little kabuki brush looks nice on display next to my Ariel one ontop of my vanity. 
The colors are different from the Elf Stuido blush/bronzer duo. The blush is a lot lighter. 

The bronzer and blush swatches. 

My thoughts-
I really liked this bronzer because it's not super dark, and it doesn't come off orange. It's the perfect shade for my pale skin and it blends really nice. The blush wasn't very pigmented and didn't show up well on the skin. It's slightly buildable, but for anyone was darker skin tone than mine it probably wouldn't show up at all unless used as a highlight. 

This is all for my review on the Snow White collection by Elf! I believe this is also limited edition, so if you want to pick up anything then go grab it from Walgreens, or Walgreens website! 

Have you picked up anything from this Elf Snow White collection?
