The Essence x Catrice Disney Princess Courage To Be Kind Collection recently launched as the seventh collection between Essence and Catrice, with Disney as a Sister Love collaboration, and they always launch them at this time of year, every year.
Last year’s Essence and Catrice Disney Sister Love collection was a collaboration with Disney Villains, and it was a pretty amazing collection. This year’s collection, however, is all about the Disney Princesses, and I have the entire collection to share with you, with swatches.
The Essence x Catrice Disney Princess Courage To Be Kind Collection is a massive collection, with a staggering twenty six products. This collection is split into two capsule collections within the collaboration.
With both Essence Disney Princess products, and Catrice Disney Princess products, and honestly, the quality is incredible. If you’d like to find out more, and see how amazing the products all are, keep on reading…
The Essence x Catrice Disney Princess Courage To Be Kind Collection includes three pairs of false eyelashes, and they’re part of the Essence side of the collaboration. Each set of lashes come in a grey lash box, with the princess on the front, and they even include a vial of false lash glue too, which is great considering how cheap they are.
The three pairs of lashes on offer are;
Essence Disney Princess Mulan False Lashes
Essence Disney Princess Rapunzel False Lashes
Essence Disney Princess Jasmine False Lashes
Each set of lashes has a completely different design. The Mulan Lashes are the most natural, with a wispy effect. The Rapunzel Lashes have a natural finish too, but they’re less wispy in comparison, and they slightly taper towards the edges.
If you love a fuller lash, the Mulan Lashes have a criss-cross effect, with clusters of lashes dotted along the lash band. All three sets of lashes are super pretty, and I like how they’re each designed to represent each princess.
Next up in the Essence x Catrice Disney Princess Courage To Be Kind Collection, are three individual makeup brushes, as part of the Essence collection. There’s a single brush for each of the three same princesses for the lashes; Mulan, Rapunzel and Mulan.
Each of the brushes comes with a plastic storage tube, and have gunmetal metallic handles, pale pink toned ferrules, synthetic duo-fiber bristles, and pink Princess patterns on the handles. They’re beautiful brushes for the price, with the Mulan brush being the Face Powder Brush, the Rapunzel brush is an Eyeshadow Brush, and the Jasmine brush is a Blender Brush.
Next, in the Essence x Catrice Disney Princess Courage To Be Kind Collection, are three products in the Catrice collaboration. They are all face serums, but they each contain different floral extracts.
They have beautiful designs, with chunky clear glass bottles, glass pipettes, and the serum contains real flower petals. The three princesses for the serums are; Belle, Ariel and Pocahontas
Catrice Disney Princess Belle Face Serum With Rose Water 30ml
Catrice Disney Princess Pocahontas Face Serum With Sunflower Extract 30ml
Catrice Disney Princess Belle Face Serum With Hibiscus Extract 30ml
How beautiful are these serums?! The petals look so pretty, and they all have a super hydrating formula, making them perfect as a base under makeup. I’ve never seen anything like this from Catrice or Essence before, and they’re so weighty. They definitely don’t look or feel like they’re €5.99, they’re so lovely.
The Essence x Catrice Disney Princess Courage To Be Kind Collection includes two different brush sets, with one for Catrice and one for Essence. This is the Essence Disney Princess Brush & Bag Set, which features a rose gold metallic zip-up pouch, with Mulan, Jasmine and Rapunzel on the front.
Inside the pouch, there are three makeup brushes, and they are the same brushes which are available to purchase individually. With the same brush shapes, so don’t buy this set and the individual brushes, as you’ll end up with repeats. It’s such a cute set and gift idea, especially if you know someone that loves Disney or Disney Princesses.
Included within the Essence x Catrice Disney Princess Courage To Be Kind Collection, there are four mascaras, with two mascaras for each of the two brands; Catrice and Essence.
The four mascaras are all permanent mascaras, but they’ve had a Disney glow-up with special sparkly packaging, with each mascara being themed around a different Disney Princess. The four mascaras on offer are;
- Catrice Ariel Glam & Doll Waterproof Mascara
- Catrice Belle Glam & Doll False Lashes Mascara
- Essence Jasmine I ♥ Extreme Volume Mascara
- Essence Rapunzel I ♥ Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara
They all have different wand designs, with both natural and synthetic bristles. The sparkly packaging on all four mascaras is so pretty and glittery. If you love the mascaras as part of the permanent range, you’ll love this Disney special edition of all four.
We then have the brush set within the Catrice collection from the collaboration. We have the eye makeup brush set in the Essence collection, and this set is the Catrice Disney Princess Sister Love Face Set & Bag.
This set includes a gold metallic faux leather makeup bag, with three different Disney Princesses on the front. As well as the bag, you get a collection of skincare treats for the face.
Inside the Catrice Disney Princess Sister Love Face Set & Bag, there are the following three products;
- Catrice Ariel Blue Jade Facial Roller
- Catrice Pocahontas Hydrogel Face Mask With Niacinamide
- Catrice Belle Face Serum With Rose Water
This is such a cute set, and I like that there’s a facial skincare themed set and also a makeup brush set, with three different princesses for each set. The bag of this set is impressively large too, and it’s great for the price.
One of my favourite collection of products within the Essence x Catrice Disney Princess Courage To Be Kind Collection are three tinted lip balms, themed around three princesses. My photos do not do them justice, I swear. They are absolutely stunning, and they’re just €4.49 each.
The three tinted lip balms have gold chrome casing, and the bullets have an amazing glittery finish to them. I know they look scarily glittery, but the glitter doesn’t translate on to the lips.
I thought it would be a sparkly mess on the lips, but they’re like the Huda Beauty Diamond Balm Lip Balms, with super sparkly glitter on the outside of the balms, but they’re not glittery on the lips. The bullets also have little crowns in them too.
The Essence x Catrice Disney Princess Courage To Be Kind Collection includes the following three balms; Catrice Disney Princess Belle Lip Balm which is a rosy pink, the Catrice Disney Princess Ariel Lip Balm, which is a nude pink, and the Catrice Disney Princess Pocahontas Lip Balm, which is a peachy nude.
The Essence x Catrice Disney Princess Courage To Be Kind Collection includes two different highlighter palettes, with one face highlighter palette for Ariel and one palette for Belle. They each contain three powder highlighters, with 21g of product.
Inside the palette, there are three seven gram highlighters with mirrors inside the lid. Each of the pans have a raised pattern to complement the two princesses, with little roses for the Belle palette, and little clamshells for the Ariel palette.
The Catrice Belle Highlighter Palette is a warm toned highlighter palette with the following shade names;
- Dancing Gown
- Golden Heart
The Catrice Ariel Highlighter Palette is a cooler toned highlighter palette with the following shade names;
- Sparkling Shell
- Shiny Coral
- Hidden Treasure
I’m super fussy when it comes to highlighters, but all six shades of highlighter within these palettes are beautiful. They’re so smooth, silky and apply like a dream without emphasising texture or peach fuzz.
They double us as gorgeous eyeshadows too, and the quality is definitely better than any other highlighters I’ve tried from Catrice or Essence.
The Essence x Catrice Disney Princess Courage To Be Kind Collection features six different eyeshadow palettes, with three palettes for Essence, and then three for Catrice, and each palette is themed around a different Disney Princess. Let’s start with the Essence Disney Princess Eyeshadow Palettes…
Essence Disney Princess Jasmine Eyeshadow Palette
Essence Disney Princess Rapunzel Eyeshadow Palette
Essence Disney Princess Mulan Eyeshadow Palette
The Essence x Catrice Disney Princess Courage To Be Kind Collection includes three eyeshadow palettes, with gold packaging, and they’re Catrice palettes, with eighteen shades each, and the princesses are Pocahontas, Ariel and Belle.
Catrice Disney Princess Pocahontas Eyeshadow Palette
Catrice Disney Princess Ariel Eyeshadow Palette
Catrice Disney Princess Belle Eyeshadow Palette
All six eyeshadow palettes within the Essence x Catrice Disney Princess Courage To Be Kind Collection are truly amazing. There isn’t one disappointing palette in the whole collection, and there isn’t a disappointing product in the whole collection either.
Everything is pigmented, easy to apply and the colour stories and products all complement each of the princesses too. It’s not like they’ve thrown random products / shades together for the collab.
Unlike other brands which have obviously not put a lot of thought into a collab, and call it a Disney collection. It’s a beautiful collection, which both Disney fans or makeup fans in general will appreciate, and I am so impressed!
