Disney makeup lovers have been showered with cosmetic releases for the entirety of 2019! The best part about it all is that it doesn't look like Disney plans to let up on our beauty stashes any time soon. The brand seems committed to a life of film reboots, merch, and makeup. It's like we pricked our fingers, then fell asleep and woke up in Disney-makeup-land. We are drowning in it all, and please don't send help. We are GOOD.
The latest makeup collection Disney has us salivating over is dedicated to the coolest redheaded mermaid in the sea! That means The Little Mermaid, and yes, you read right: There is a makeup collection for our beloved Ariel.
Disney and UStar Cosmetics have partnered to make The Little Mermaid: Power Pearl of the Sea collection.
Per the packaging, this collection focuses entirely on the star of The Little Mermaid, which is obviously Ariel. There are no odes to Ursula à la ColourPop's Disney Villains collection. The actual packaging also doesn't have any representation of Ariel's sidekicks, Sebastian the lobster and Flounder the fish. It's an Ariel-only affair, people.
The collection also has a (disappointing AF) powder foundation offering.
The powder foundation comes in only two beige shades, which are Sand Beige and Warm Ivory. Disney greenlighting a powder foundation available in only two shades says a lot about how well-versed the brand actually is in complexion makeup products. But I digress.
The last piece in The Little Mermaid: Power Pearl of the Sea collection is an eyeliner pen.
According to these swatches, this eyeliner pen looks very legit. It appears to create full pigment in a single swipe without the messy tug marks. How long the product actually lasts is questionable, but this is super cute to have if you really love makeup and The Little Mermaid.
Unfortunately, there's a major catch with this new Disney makeup.
The collection is only available in Thailand. I know. Your heart just shattered into a million pieces. Ursula just screamed from the lowest depths of the ocean. And Sebastian is busy doing what he always does: serving major side eye to Ariel and threatening to snitch on her to King Triton.
If you're in Thailand or planning to go, then you're in luck. Other than that, we can only pine for the makeup like Ariel did for Eric. Sigh.
