Spotted at Walgreens: Limited Edition Disney Elsa (Frozen) Collection

Updated 2/28/15 with pics and swatches of the e.l.f. Elsa collection.

Walgreens is really running with these special limited edition Disney collections! I showed you the new, permanent SOHO Beauty Disney Princess makeup brushes a little while back, but did you know that there is also a brand new Elsa (Frozen) limited edition collection now popping up in stores? I sure didn't, but thanks to two lovely readers, I have some pics to share with you today!

Limited Edition Disney Elsa Collection at Walgreens

Keep reading for lots (and lots) of pics...

First up, reader Hannah (@thepurpleduck on Instagram) spotted this display at her local Walgreens this week and kindly shared these pics:

Bottom row: Orly Nail Polishes

There are four Elsa makeup bags in this collection and the prices from left to right in the photo above are $11.99, $9.99, $7.99 and $7.99. 

Based on the previous Disney bags from SOHO, I would imagine that the lining of these bags is really cute. Here's a closer look at each bag, thanks to Hannah:

Also in this collection are Orly Color Blast nail polishes (this is a defintely a new addition to the Walgreens Disney collections--Orly was not part of any of the previous Disney collections).

Reader Lillian (@moonlette on Instagram) spotted this display at her local Walgreens this week and kindly shared lots of pics of these polishes:

As you can see, these are the Orly Color Blast polishes, which are NOT the same size as regular Orly polishes. I did a big post about the Color Blasts when they first launched at Kmart, so I can confirm that the Color Blasts are 0.37 ounces for $6.99 each (this is the regular retail price at Kmart too) whereas the regular Orly polishes are 0.6 oz and retail for about $8 each at most places.

So the duos in this display are a better deal at $10.99 for two, given that the singles are $6.99. But I also want you to be aware that some of the shades below (Lillian kindly shared bottle shots of every single shade with us!) do look similiar to some of the permanent, core shades in the Color Blast line (you can check out my blog post HERE to see what I mean). BUT, these Elsa polishes all have special Frozen-themed names, and if you don't already have access to the regular Color Blast line in your area, they could still be worth a purchase (especially the duos since they're a better deal).

Here's a closer look at each shade in this collection:

Pryanka Arora was also nice enough to swatch these shadows and include commentary on the photos:

She also shared this dupe comparison:

Well this is certainly an exciting collection, right? Lots of things we haven't ever seen before in e.l.f.'s other Disney collections, but I am bummed that the prices have increased over previous collections (but that's what Walgreens Balance Rewards are for, right?). I'm really curious about that Smudge Pot and how it might compare to the two lightest shades in the permanent Smudge Pot line.

Thanks so much, Hannah, Lillian, Ari, @mommywiggles, Ricki and Pryanka Arora, for the great pics and info. I really appreciate it!

  8. "or Elsa..."

    lol

    Thanks for sharing this. As a mother of a toddler, I agree w/someone in your Instafeed -- "will it ever end?" I know it will not, so I'll be hunting down goods at my local Walgreens.

  10. Oooh - I hope ELF comes out with some stuff too.

  11. Oooo I need those lashes and a couple of those polish shades!

  12. The polishes are very pretty. I would get some if I see them.

  13. I had shown my daughter (she's 9) these pics and she thought they were super...so on Saturday we checked at a local Walgreens... they didn't have the nail polishes :( BUT we each came out with an Elsa bag (the $9.99 one for me, the $7.99 wristlet for her)... Also, on a side note, they had the new spring E.O.S lip balms, which she's obsessed with and collects, so we got those too. As soon as we got in the car the balms went in the bag!

  14. Not happy about the prices bummer!

    ReplyDelete
  15. This is a nice collection but the fact that they increased the prices irritates me. They know how popular this movie was and they know anything with Elsa's picture on it will sell out in two seconds so in one way they are just being greedy just because they can.

  16. Priyanka's way of reviewing the shades *on* the swatch photo = genius!

    1. I agree! Great swatches!!!

    2. Aww thank you both so much!! I'm glad the swatches are helpful :)

  17. This cheek palette I thought looked so great, it looks so much like some higher end palletes I have! When I first swatched it on my arm, it seemed somewhat pigmented. But, when I tried applying it, I could not get the blush nor bronzer to show up AT ALL! I have an Elsa-like complexion (NW 13), so I can't imagine this being pigmented enough for anyone!! It may still be worth a try, but I'm glad I resisted the urge to buy two of these on the spot!! :) If anyone finds a way to make this product work, I would LOVE to know how!! The packaging make it too darn cute to return....... Hoping I have better luck with some of the other items!!!

  18. The elf items seem a little more expensive than their non-Frozen themed counterparts. :/ $12.99 Beauty Book and $4.99 Smudge Pot? Unless I'm mistaken, I believe even previous elf Disney items were a little cheaper.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yeah, they are. The beauty books were $9.99 in the past. I think it's because it's Frozen and it's high-demand and they know they can charge more for it.

  19. I found them at my local Walgreen here in Waco, TX! I have a picture but I don't know how to send it to you! (I spent about $45 dollars though for the entire makeup collection..) Also, got the smaller wrist-let and the big hair comb.. i can send you pictures too!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ok, just got back from Walgreens with the eye and face palettes, the smudge pot, and the white/clear lip gloss (giving that one to my daughter). I'm already *made up* today but I'll be trying these tomorrow!!
