Morgan Taylor Beauty & the Beast Collection Spring 2017 Review

Morgan Taylor Beauty & the Beast Collection Spring 2017 Review 0

"This spring is the season your dreams come true; Gelish MINI and Morgan Taylor introduce the Beauty and The Beast 2017 collection.  In correlation with Walt Disney Pictures' release of the live-action film, Beauty and the Beast, the collection is filled with dreamy shades in red pearls and pink and baby blue cremes.  This whimsical collection will make the wearer feel like the Belle at any ball!

"It's extremely wonderful to collaborate with Disney again and create this collection for the Beauty and the Beast live-action movie," says Danny Haile. "We wanted to be honorable guests of this beloved and classic story by developing colors that reflect the beauty that comes from within." according to the official press release.   

The collection consists of the following colors-

Gaston and On and On: a baby blue creme.

Plumette with Excitement: a pale dusty pink creme.

Potts of Tea: a milky off white with blue undertones and shimmer running through it. My personal favorite in the collection. [alabaster]

The Last Petal: a shimmering raspberry. [red pearl]

Be Our Guest: a bold magenta pink creme. [pink creme]

Days in the Sun: a light buttery yellow with iridescence running through it. [yellow]

Enchanted Patina: an antique bronze.  Relatively sheer on its own, best to be used on top of another color. [specialty Patina overlay coat. *Morgan Taylor only] (not available in Gelish)

(all swatches shown here are two coats, and are taken outdoors in natural sunlight).

I think this collection beautifully represents the film.  The colors are fun, fanciful, but also practical and highly wearable.  Potts of Tea is my personal favorite, its just so unique and different from all other shades on the market.

I am a big fan of the Enchanted Patina.  I think its a very cool concept and easily allows you to transform virtually any color you already own.  With regards to this collection, however, I say it looks best over Gaston and On and On, and Plumette with Excitement.

Also worth mentioning is the new and improved brush.  I am obsessed with this new wider and cuticle hugging brush.  There are significantly more bristles, and the end of the bristles have a slight curve to them, so they really fit in perfectly up to the cuticle line, allowing for perfect and easy painting application. 

The movie comes out nationwide March 17, 2017. Make sure to check out the trailer below.

The Beauty and the Beast collection from Morgan Taylor and Gelish will be available for a limited time beginning February 2017, and will retail for $9 each.

Morgan Taylor Cinderella Collection Review 0

"Find your happily ever after this spring with the Cinderella 2015 collection from Morgan Taylor. In celebration of Walt Disney Pictures’ live-action film Cinderella, this collection features six magical individual colors, duo sets and NEW Morgan Taylor MINI’s, bound to capture any prince.

“We were thrilled to be part of this amazing project,” said namesakes Morgan Haile and Taylor Daniel. “For this collection, we wanted to create an array of colors that highlight iconic moments and characters from this beloved fairy tale story, Cinderella. From the fanciful glitters to striking bright pink, each shade is soaring with personality to fall in line with the movie.”

With the Cinderella 2015 collection from Morgan Taylor, anyone can find a winning, beautiful color to add a magical touch for your spring style," according to the press release.

The Cinderella Collection include:

Watch Your Step, Sister!: a hot pink neon coral creme.

Party at the Palace: a turquoise blue with gold shimmer.

Ella of a Girl: a bubblegum pink creme.

Best Ball Gown Ever: a magical shimmering cornflower blue.  I am obsessed with this shade.  I find it to be super unique to what's out on the market, and it's absolutely beautiful! I highly recommend it. 

My Carriage Awaits: a peachy coral creme.

If the Slipper Fits: an icy blue iridescent glitter.  Was nicely pigmented and didn't require 3 coats; it covered fully and well in only 2.

 (all swatches shown here are 2 coats).

 Overall I think Morgan Taylor did an excellent job of curating a collection that embodies the classic fairy tale.  There is honestly something in this collection for everyone.  Some of the colors are highly unique, like Best Ball Gown Ever & If the Slipper Fits, but some are also just okay, like Ella of a Girl.  

 My personal favorites include: If the Slipper Fits, Party at the Palace, & Best Ball Gown Ever.

Disney’s live-action movie, Cinderella, will be opening in theaters on March 13, 2015. The Cinderella 2015 collection from  Morgan Taylor is available for a limited time at select salons nationwide and at  www.morgantaylorlacquer.com. The suggested retail price for the lacquer is $8.50 each. The duo packs and 4piece mini  pack $14.95 each.
