A Pony Shopping Spree: Target Edition

Yesterday, Target had all toys 25% off and I went a little nuts on buying up the My Little Pony the Movie Collection. I've been holding out for a good sale, and aside from the 40% off that Toys R Us runs every so often, this was the next best thing. I'm still missing the Seaquestria Playset (which I really hope shows up for a good price on Black Friday somewhere) and a few other items, but I'm sure they'll make it into my shopping cart soon. Now onto the part where I catalogue and photograph.

A Pop of Pony Color: ColourPop My Little Pony Collection Review

My Little Pony did a fun collaboration with ColourPop and the results are magical! I purchased the whole collection which came with a cute old school tote, My Little Pony make up brushes, a sticker sheet, and metallic makeup bag embellished with the My Little Pony Logo.

I was so excited when my box arrived and couldn't wait to tear into it! ColourPop packaged their items very well with plenty of packing foam in a sturdy package to be sure everything arrived intact.

The My Little Pony product packaging is gorgeous and features retro ponies which speak directly to my collector heart! Inside, each product continues with the Pony theme with outlines of pony characters, and artwork. The eyeshadow pallet is my personal favorite, decorated with popular ponies from the past.

Each product shade is cleverly named to pay homage to the line with shades like Dream Castle, Flutter Valley, and Minty among others.

While, some of the shades are a little bright and bold for my personal taste, there is definitely something for every preference in this collection.

My only complaint with this collection would have to be that the color shade names seem to have been randomly assigned. It would make far more sense for the color shade to share an attribute with its namesake, Pony.

Here's a quick photo of my post Pony-Product make up session, because I couldn't resist playing with this stuff! (Don't mind my messy hair.)

I'll be gifting some ColorPop My Little Pony lip gloss on the My Little Pony Fair Facebook page. Just find the contest post and comment the secret words: Pony Pucker. I will be randomly choosing a couple of winners later this week.

Good luck and Happy Pony Collecting!

Bottled 80s Pony Scent? Yes, Please!

I've heard that this Coconut Mint Drop lotion smells like 80's My Little Ponies. Challenge accepted. Items ordered. I will report on my finding when they arrive.
Update 11.8.17: My box from Bath and Body Works arrived. They were having a Buy 2 get 1 Free promotion with free shipping.  You know I ordered 3, because value.  As for my report on this item and whether it smells like 80s ponies, my short answer is no it does not smell like all 80s ponies. However, there is a silver lining in that it does smell exactly like one particular 80s pony, Mint Dreams! My personal collection Mint Dreams was one of the last G1 My Little Ponies I bought in stores and I was able to open her brand new. Since I was nearing the end of the time when I actually played with ponies and was more focused on collecting them, Mint Dreams remains in amazing condition and still retains her original scent.  This Coconut Mint Drop lotion smells exactly like her and that makes me all kinds of happy. 

For those of you taking part in the MLPFair giveaway contest, the secret word is: Candy Cane. Thanks for reading!
