E.L.F. The Enchanted Tale Face Palette Review & Swatches

E.L.F. The Enchanted Tale Face Palette

E.L.F. The Enchanted Tale Face Palette ($6.99) is a new limited edition blush, bronzer, and highlighter compact that’s available with the E.L.F. Cosmetics Beauty and the Beast Makeup Collection. It might look a bit familiar and that would be because E.L.F. introduced a similar palette with the Frozen Elsa Collection that was called the Snow and Ice Icicle Face Palette which I didn’t really give a great review since it was so very sheer.

Let’s see if the E.L.F. The Enchanted Tale Face Palette proves any better!

E.L.F. The Enchanted Tale Face Palette is adorable to say the least. It’s a white plastic compact with a clear front panel featuring beautiful art work of Belle in her gorgeous yellow ball gown. I love that E.L.F. decided to start extending their Disney makeup collections to include new items like this compact however, I do think they still need to work on the formula of these releases.

No worries about dupes as Belle’s palette seems to follow the same color scheme as Elsa’s but the colors bronzer is far deeper, the blush a bit sheerer, and the highlighter much more glow-y!

As you can see the palette is much like a contouring one as you have a rich, deep bronzer which subtle touches of gold shimmer which can be used to add color to face or even to sculpt or define with. The palette also includes a dusky peach blush with golden shimmer and finally a pale golden cream highlighter. Oddly enough although lighter I found the blush applied considerably less sheer than Elsa’s blush and I was able to get a very nice dusting of peach on my face using it. The texture of the blush is very soft and silky with an easy to blend formula. Unfortunately the bronzer was a little too deep for me and gave me a muddy finish on my complexion. The texture is velvety on it and it blends quite well but it’s also quite pigmented so a lighter hand is best since, as I said, it can get a bit muddy. And finally the highlighter seems a little unnatural to me as it does create a rather pasty look on my cheeks! It’s a bit chalky in texture as well so you might want to use a fan brush during application so you can apply it with a sheer, lighter touch!

I wouldn’t say the E.L.F. The Enchanted Tale Face Palette is perfect in anyway unfortunately as it seems to be a mismatch of formulas, pigmentation, and textures plus I find that the $6.99 price tag, for E.L.F. Cosmetics, is a touch on the high side. But I see this easily becoming something fans of Beauty and the Beast would want and who can blame them? It’s one of the reasons I purchased it as Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite Disney films!

The E.L.F. The Enchanted Tale Face Palette is available now exclusively at Walgreens!

    Hi! Thaanks for the info! πŸ™‚

    I stopped by Walgreens on the way home from work and no luck, we don’t have these yet. The sales associate said they typically get them in when there’s a promotion and so they should get it in if it’s out there, but she wasn’t sure when. When I told it was B&B she was very receptive so it looks like she likes BB too! πŸ™‚
