The new Disney Cinderella Collection by Sephora has launched! It’s starting to trickle into stores as the Sephora in Times Square has the complete collection plus it is available to VIBs online at Sephora.com
I think the magic of Disney Princesses has touched us all at some point in our lives. They represent the magic of our dreams as a child and let’s face it that magic never really goes away as we grow older particularly for the girly girls out there who love beautiful things.
So with great pleasure I introduced you to the Disney Cinderella Collection by Sephora last week. Cinderella combined with makeup and beauty makes a marriage most wonderful wouldn’t you agree?
The Disney Cinderella Collection by Sephora Moonlit Kiss Lipstick Set ($25) is a selection of creamy, satiny lipsticks inspired by Cinderella. Bringing hues of berry, peach, warm rose, and champagne to lips these magical lipsticks bring a kiss of color to lips.
What did I think of them?
Let’s take a look!
Sephora reigns supreme again and captures my heart with beautiful packaging. These lipsticks come in a pale blueish gray box featuring floral swirls. The outer box is romantic, feminine, and very pretty.
Inside the lipsticks come in silver plated tubes featuring swirling vines on the cap. They are simple yet beautiful tubes however, they are lightweight and have no weight behind them. Each lipstick is actually full size weighting in at 0.13 oz each. That’s more than a MAC Lipstick so Sephora didn’t skimp on size here and at $25 for the complete set this is a steal.
- Lady Tremaine (berry)
- Pumpkin (light pastel peach)
- Who Is She? (warm rosy mauve)
- My Moment (pink champagne glitter)
You get a nice range of color here but most of the shades are suitable for a lighter skin tone aside from Lady Tremaine which is a delightful vampy berry shade.
Who Is She?

So you have a wonderful price, beautiful packaging, and a collection of lipsticks inspired by Cinderella herself.
A bad formula.
I’m surprised that the formula wasn’t good considering Sephora has been on an excellent track lately with their makeup releases. Sadly, the Moonlit Kiss Lipstick set definitely doesn’t bring its A game.
The texture of the lipsticks is very dry and a bit of tugging is involved to get them onto my lips. Be careful with application and be sure your lips are extra smooth and soft as these will accentuate dry, flaky areas and also add to that dryness as they have do not have a moisturizing, hydrating formula in the least. A little lip balm under them and a little clear gloss over them is definitely necessary to keep them looking their best otherwise they are just very dry lipsticks with a poor texture. This formula wasn’t limited to a single shade, unfortunately, all the shades suffered the same.
Overall, the Moonlit Kiss Lipstick Set is a gorgeous little set at a value price however, the formula suffers terribly here. If you don’t mind prepping well and wearing clear gloss on top they are “workable” if you must have them for collector’s purposes. However, if you simply aren’t interested in a poorly formulated lipstick you might want to skip. They have a certain appeal if you’re a collector however, if you’re looking for wearable shades of lipstick with a nice formula these aren’t it.
Who Is She?
So sorry Sephora but you lost me on this one.
Please share your experience.
The Disney Cinderella Collection is available now at Sephora.com and launching at Sephora stores soon (some stores already have it).
