Do you ever anticipate something so much that it just seems like it'll never come to fruition? You anticipate it so much that time seems to go slower and slower and the day or event you've been anticipating doesn't seem real? Well, that's how I felt about this Ariel Set The Mood compact mirror that was released in the Disney Collection by Sephora. The compact mirrors have been the pic de resistance to every single one of the Disney Collection selling out in just hours. Unfortunately, the same rang true for the Ariel collection and it sold out in about an hour and half. I was (somehow) lucky enough to be awake at a normal hour and catch the release. I snagged myself four *blushes* Haha, I don't know why I needed so many but maybe I'll give them to some friends and family. This compact is absolutely gorgeous and was completely worth waiting for. The detail in the cover is outmatched. Seriously, if you can find anything prettier let me know. The compact depicts the scene of 'Kiss the Girl' in The Little Mermaid when Ariel and Eric are boating on the lake. It shows them in silhouette and around them are the little fish swimming (and in the movie singing) around them. It's very sturdy and has a bit of heft to it which to some would seem troublesome to carry around, but for $20 I'm glad because it feels like it won't just snap. There's a quote inscribed on one of the mirrors that says "you've got to be you" A lot of people seem to have a problem with this quote and it's relation to the movie but it's ... just ... I love it. There's no way to fault the execution of this compact in every detail. I have no words for this compact - really, I don't, the pictures honestly say it all. I'm so happy with it and can't wait to whip it out instead of my phone to touch up my makeup. Every mermaid should have this to complete their collections :)
What do you all think? Were you lucky enough to catch it?
