Once upon a time, a beauty collaboration came together, and it was so lovely that we had to tell you all about it. In partnership with Disney, Sephora has launched Reigning Beauties, a series of exclusive collections inspired by the animation giant's most popular princesses. Kicking things off is Cinderella, whose tale is interpreted into lip color, fragrance, nail polish, and more. While the packaging is gorgeous, what's inside is even better. Housed in a velveteen tray, the Storylook eye shadow palette ($55) matches its 20 shades directly to the Pantone colors of the 1950 film. A gold shimmer is lifted from Gus Gus's shirt, a periwinkle hue is identical to the fairy godmother's dress, and (of course) Cinderella's glass slipper has inspired an icy light blue. Lest you think this is kids' stuff, the color payoff and silky texture are both impressive. Just as Cinderella had to dash home before midnight, though, this collection won't be around for long — so have a look before it's too late.
