True ‘90s kids know that nothing produces that warm and fuzzy, nostalgic feeling like the opening chimes of the Disney theme tune. That unfolding castle logo marked the beginning of enchanting journeys into exotic lands, with fairy godmothers, talking woodland creatures and heroic quests. Now, encapsulating the Disney magic, Beauty Bay has launched a 12-piece, limited-edition makeup collection which takes colours from Disney’s most iconic films (Alice in Wonderland, The Jungle Book, Dumbo and Pinocchio) and turns them into Instagram-worthy eyeshadow palettes and more.
Including three mini eyeshadow palettes, six shadow sticks and three lip and cheek stains, the collection pays homage to the artists at the Walt Disney Studios Ink & Paint Department. These are the people who brought Alice’s blue dress to life, filled The Jungle Book with lush foliage and painted Dumbo’s hat sunshine yellow. The extensive colour library was established in the 1930s and spans more than 90 years and over 4,000 colours.
With a combination of matte, cream-to-powder blush and glossy satin lip colours, the Lip and Cheek Duos (£8 each) give you rosy red cheeks to rival Pinocchio’s, while the chubby Shadow Sticks (£6 individually or £15 for a trio) offer a quick colour payoff. Super pigmented and smudge-free, the formula sets after just 30 seconds for an all-day look and can be used all over the eye or to create a graphic liner. The real stars of the show, though, are the mini eyeshadow palettes (£8 individually or £20 for the trio).
Inspired by Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, Dumbo and The Jungle Book respectively, each palette features six vibrant matte shades which are ultra blendable and buildable for looks that riff on Baloo’s fur, the Cheshire Cat’s stripes or Dumbo’s eyes. The palettes themselves are emblazoned with iconic scenes from each film. Even better, the entire range is vegan and cruelty-free.
Beauty Bay CEO David Gabbie said in a press release: "We hope this collection inspires our community and all the Disney fans to dream in colour and make their own magic. This is a major milestone for BEAUTY BAY, which has always prided itself on being pioneering. Never before has Disney Colour licensed a cosmetic product which focuses on the colours seen in the original films themselves, rather than the simplified character call-outs for products."

We couldn’t agree more. For Disney fans, the collection is an extra sweet taste of nostalgia. For everyone else, it’s a truly joyful explosion of colour and we’re itching to get our hands on the full lineup. After all, the best beauty products are the ones that make you excited to experiment – that's the magic of makeup.
