Mirror, Mirror: 3 Snow White and the Huntsman-Inspired Beauty Sets We Love
Collabs between beauty brands and blockbusters have become de rigueur over the past few years, but now three new limited-edition lines inspired by Friday's release of Snow White and the Huntsman are promising to be the fairest of them all.
Benefit recently debuted the Rare Beauty Snow White and the Huntsman makeup kit ($45), a mini train case emblazoned with a fairy tale-inspired design and filled with four products: the POREfessional primer, BADgal Lash mascara, Benetint stain and High Beam illuminator. The beauty brand’s website features a special section with makeup tips inspired by the movie, a behind the scenes clip from the set and the chance to win a private movie screening.
Meanwhile HSN is debuting a slew of Snow White-inspired merchandise, including everything from jewelry to an apple-shaped flatscreen TV. The beauty offerings include a limited edition nail polish set ($29.95) from Deborah Lippmann. Housed in Snow White and the Huntsman packaging, the two shades, Prelude to a Kiss (a sheer pink) and Dark Side of the Moon (a deep eggplant), represent good and evil.
Also available through HSN, D.L. & Company has created candle sets based on the infamous poison apple. The Enchanted Apple Candle with Swarovski Elements ($450) is encrusted with red Swarovski crystals and scented with the essence of apple; the Brilliant Apple Candle ($30) is housed in a silver or gold apple case and scented with apple wood, vetiver, patchouli and oak moss; the apple-scented Set of 3 Poison Apples Candle Gift Set ($54) comes with a green, black and red apple holder; and the Dark Forest Glass Votive and Candle ($38) comes in a large glass votive and features fragrance notes of oak moss, black pine, cedar, Italian cypress and hemlock.
