The Sephora Minnie’s World in Color Eyeshadow Palette ($45) is a new, limited edition Minnie Mouse inspired palette that launched with the new Disney Minnie Beauty by Sephora Collection. This palette is jammed packed with 20 vibrant shades of eyeshadow that come housed in a cute little clutch that Minnie herself would be proud to tote around town.
Take a look!
The Disney Minnie Mouse Makeup Collection has been a good run for me! I was very impressed with the Reflection of Minnie Compact Mirror and Perfect Red Lipstick so far but was a little iffy on the Brush On Glamour Minnie’s Beauty Tools. But all in all the color cosmetics from the line have been very good thus far unlike the offerings from the Sephora Jem and the Holograms Collection which did so disappoint this girl!
The Sephora Minnie’s World in Color Eyeshadow Palette has a few miss shades, but it is far superior to the Jem Truly Outrageous Eyeshadow Palette regarding packaging and shadow formula. So for those, who might have been burnt by that palette and a little wary to try again, don’t worry! Minnie is much better than Jem!
I think this palette is quite a collectible piece and beautifully presented in a gorgeous box ready for gifting. If you recall Jem’s palette came in a plastic slip cover but none of that with Minnie. Minnie’s palette comes house in a deluxe box with a gorgeous gold polka dot design and red and black accents.
Inside you’ll find the palette which is shaped like a clutch and done up in solid black with gold polka dots. Minnie’s silhouette and her cute little bow decked ears peek out from the bottom of the palette. There’s also a Minnie charm which has been seen across many pieces in this collection that I’ve suggested can be taken off and used a zipper pull or a phone charm should you like. There’s also a full-size mirror that features Minnie’s autograph in red located inside the palette.
The best part of the palette is it is in fact a clutch. Both the mirror and the shadow palette pop out which converts the palette into a small purse/clutch or if you want you can score little makeup bits, bobs, or keepsakes in it.

I don’t think this eyeshadow formula is going to win any major awards but when I’m comparing it to the trainwreck that was the Jem and the Holograms Palette it is much, much better. Sephora markets it as a creamy textured palette that’s super pigmented. I’d call the eyeshadows a step above what you could get from E.L.F. Cosmetics. Almost all the shades here have a very powdery, soft, silky consistency and I had no issues with density or chalkiness. There are are some hits here and there are some misses here though in terms of consistency and pigmentation. The palette is filled with a variety of finishes from satin to matte to shimmer and even metallic. I thought the better shades were the shimmers and metallics, and some of the lighter mattes were quite lovely as well.
Shades like Miss Minnie, Pick Me Up At 8, So Demure, and Some Like It Dot were very nicely formulated where as other shades like Yoo-Hoo!, Blue Rhythm, and Hello Mickey were too powdery and blended out too sheerly. So sadly, there are some hits here but also a good deal of misses. I’m not sure if the shade selection, aside from the names, inspired Minnie Mouse as it is just a general mismatch of shades without any real rhythm, reason, or theme.
I still stand by the fact that the formula overall, was much, much better than Jem and the Holograms that’s for sure.
Sephora Minnie’s World in Color Eyeshadow Palette will likely appeal to collector’s and Disney fans but serious makeup users will likely scoff a little bit at the formula. I KNOW Sephora can do better, so I’m always slightly confused why they don’t put that fourth when doing limited edition, special palettes like this one. There are some hits here but many misses as well which will disappoint both Disney, Minnie, and makeup fans alike.
