Elsa’s Snow and Ice Beauty Book

When I saw the exclusive Frozen-themed items at Walgreen’s, I purchased the elf nine shadow palette, which I reviewed here, and I also purchased the Beauty Book too…

I must admit, I have not seen the movie, as I am not a fan of cartoon movies nor musicals. However, it’s easy to say that I love the color-scheme and the makeup that this collection has.

The beauty book is just like the other elf books that have come before…

Along with a mirror, there is a two-look tutorial underneath that…

With a shadow brush and eight shadows, there is a face highlighter, two eyeliner pencils and a lip gloss…

The brush isn’t my favorite but, it can get the job done. I like to use it if I’m just going to wear one or two shadows. For a more intense look, I use other higher-end brushes for precision application and better blending.

The shadows are neither chalky nor crumbly. I found them to blend amazingly well and the colors tie into each other nicely…

Elsa Book Swatches

The eye pencils are both black. However, one is a flat black and the other has silver sparkles. I found that once I had them on, I couldn’t much tell the difference…

The lip gloss is the scene-stealer of the book. It is highly-pigmented, not a bit tacky and it is super bold…

Elsa Lip Gloss

I didn’t use a primer with any of these swatches. I would, however, recommend using a lip liner with this gloss as it migrated on me rather quickly. I feel a liner would have corralled it and kept it from bleeding.

The highlighter was adorable with its embossing…

However, it is just an overspray. This is what happened when I swatched it…

Nevertheless, for my fair complexion, this highlighter looked nice applied to the top of the apples of my cheeks. I don’t do highlighters much but, with a light application, this one didn’t make me look overly made-up or shiny.

Overall, I find this elf beauty book to be absolutely adorable. For a makeup junkie, I think it’s fun and I can easily recommend it for any age.

Have you spotted the Frozen movie products in your Walgreen’s? Which ones did you get?

 

 

elf: Frozen Palette

Walgreen’s has quite a collection of Disney’s Frozen-themed makeup, hair accessories and makeup bags. The bright colors drew me right in. elf has a Frozen-themed palette that I picked up immediately…

Nine shadows make up this palette…

They are quite a pretty assortment. I think most of them are on the warm side, however I don’t let that hold me back! I love mixing and playing with a wide-spectrum of colors…

Poor babies have no names, alas. Yet, they do give the feel of the Frozen movie theme…

As you can see from the swatches I did, not all of the shadows are strikingly vivid. The last three on the right are very light but, I feel that makes them work for highlighting the best, like in the inside corner of the eyelid. The first two shadows on the left gave me some fall-out yet, I found none of them to be crumbly.

I was surprised that the price was just a bit under $7 as elf is known for having a low price point. I imagine the licensing fee may have bumped up the price.

Have you seen this palette as your Walgreen’s?
