Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? Why it’s you! Like most millennials, I grew up watching classic Disney movies like Cinderella, The Lion King, Pocahontas, Beauty and the Beast, and countless others. I was in awe of the magical, song-filled worlds and hoped my life could be a fraction as fantastic. Of course, looking back at these films as an adult with a critical eye, you realize they’re completely unrealistic, and many of the tropes (especially for women) are harmful. But sometimes, it’s fun to take a trip down memory lane and relive happy childhood days. ColourPop, the reigning queen of collaborations, recently released a Snow White-inspired makeup collection that is wonderfully nostalgic. It even has non-makeup items like an apple-shaped lip scrub and your own magic mirror to create enchanting looks daily. Keep reading to learn more.

First up is the Dreams Come True 12-pan eyeshadow palette, and of course, Snow White’s colors are the main attraction here. It has a rich cobalt blue, a candy apple red and easy-to-work-with neutrals in matte, matte sparkle, metallic and Super Shock finishes. The packaging (as it always is) is stunning, with the first few lines of the story actually written in old-timey script on the inside. Shade names include Spell Breaker, Someday, My Prince and Ever After.
What’s a princess without those blushing, rosy cheeks? This collection features three Super Shock Blushes in the iconic crème-to-powder formula that you can’t mess up. I Wish, I Wish is a baby pink, Fair Enough is a pinky red and Just Rosy is a blackberry shade that looks good enough to eat. Each blush has a duochrome finish for the ultimate touch of sparkle, whether you’re using a brush for a toned-down look or your fingers for intense pigment.
Ahhhh yes, we’ve come to my favorite part of the collection. The Just One Bite Lip Scrub comes in a limited edition apple jar that you can repurpose after you’ve used up all its contents. How cute is that? The scrub has sugar crystals, shea butter, Cupuaçu butter, almond oil and jojoba oil for your most moisturized lips ever.
Are you team Snow White or team Evil Queen? Pick your side with the new lip kits that come with a Lippie Pencil, Lux Lipstick and apple-flavored Lux Lip Gloss. The Love’s First Kiss Trio (for Snow White, obviously) will give you a pout as red as a rose, while the Evil Queen Lip Trio is a wickedly beautiful deep red violet.
Finally, the Magic Mirror is another ColourPop exclusive that you won’t want to miss out on. The gold and royal purple mirror will look good on any vanity or makeup desk, and you can peer at yourself in the mirror every day and take in all of your gorgeousness. It’s emblazoned with the words “Make a wish and unlock the magic.” Don’t mind if we do!
