Two of my favourite companies (MAC and Disney) in one collection: MAC Cinderella Collection. My inner princess was so excited when I found out about this collaboration late last year. I usually collect MAC lipsticks, but let me tell you a little story...

Once upon March 5th; the Cinderella collection hit MAC stores in the US. A college student named Shandarella woke up that day, feeling determined to get the two coveted lipsticks of the collection. But before she could get to the MAC Store, she had to go to school. As the clock stroke 3:00 in the afternoon, Shandarella was finally free to set on her journey to the mall. She went up the escalator and spotted the pretty periwinkle collection from far away. She was ecstatic. She went straight to the little corner where the collection had been resting and found... THE LIPSTICKS WERE SOLD OUT. Her heart broke a little and she did not know what to do. She took a couple of rounds in the store to think about her next move. Then, she got back to the collection and thought, 
"I guess one palette won't hurt..."

And that is how I ended up with the MAC Cinderella Stroke of Midnight Eyeshadow Palette. Thankfully, my UK-based fairy God sister, Livia, got me the lipsticks as they did not sell out as quick. Click Here for the MAC Cinderella Lipsticks review.

Vapour (Velvet) - glittery white shimmer, very sheer
Phloof (Frost) - pearly white
Omega (Matte) - olive toned brown
Quarry (Matte) - burgundy toned brown, favorite of the palette
Satin Taupe (Frost) - satiny sheen, most pigmented, metallic brown
Stroke of Midnight (Velvet) - charcoal black with gold glitter

First of all, how gorgeous is the packaging? The powder blue-periwinkle color with gold accents makes it look elegant and royal. Second, how gorgeous are these colors? One thing I like about this palette is that it is totally wearable and versatile. The colors can be used to make various looks from natural to smokey. The only thing I did not like about the shadows is that they were not pigmented and were very sheer. It took me around 12 swipes to make these swatches and the colors still did not come out well. All in all, I think MAC Cinderella Stroke of Midnight Eyeshadow Palette is a keeper. You can use it to wear to any event; whether it be a casual day out or an evening ball. Just make sure to retouch every once in a while.
