Disney Frozen Beauty Collection

I love make-up.  I'm not one of those hard-core girls who use multiple shades of contour, but I do enjoy having a bunch of fun colors to choose from.  When I was a kid, I was thrilled to get the big box of crayons with the built-in sharpener.  I can't wait until my girls are big enough to take care of one of those.  Right now, my three-year-old still likes to break the crayons so we have boxes of random bits.

Frozen, especially Elsa, is still really popular in our house.  The girls have dresses and dolls and like to pretend they are the famous sisters.  They like to sing "Let It Go" and twirl around.  Tink's dance class gets a freestyle break each week to the ubiquitous Frozen song.  It's a hoot to watch a room full of five-year-olds giving it their all, complete with full Elsa attitude.

If you or the girls in your life also enjoy makeup and Frozen, there is a new makeup collection just for you.  Available at Walgreens, this limited edition collection features some great colors for spring.   I've tested all of the products below, except for the eyelashes and those may get a night out soon.

The shadows go on well and have decent lasting power.  The colors are soft so don't be intimidated by the bright colors.  You won't end up looking like Mimi from the Drew Carey Show.  You can build for more intensity but they aren't overpowering.

The eyeliner really lasts.  I had it on recently when my family had an experience that resulted in lots of tears and my liner was still in place.

The cream shadow below in the round pot is a soft sparkly pink.  Tink got to wear a tiny bit to kindergarten one day when she was hanging out with me while I was "fixing my face." (My grandmother always used to say that.  I loved watching her do her makeup.)  I've also used it as a cream base for a powder shadow and it stayed on all day.

I think I have used the Icicle Face Palette most often.  I'm normally a pink blush girl but this peachy shade is really nice.  I've also enjoyed having the bronzer and highlighter in the same kit.

The beauty book is a nice all-in-one set and would make a terrific gift.  And if Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique isn't in the budget for your next Walt Disney World vacation, this would be a really fun way to DIY the princess makeover.
