2013 Disney Villain ELF Palettes: Cruella De Vil

Fair warning: These sets are done and gone! I run across a straggler every now and then when prowling around at Walgreens. I’m talking about the Villians’ makeup sets from ELF. I got all four and with just a couple of exceptions, I love these. Here’s Cruella De Vil…

But, the rest of the items are awesome…

The packaging provides a day and a nighttime look…

And, here’s the lippie….dang it! And I don’t even care one bit for this peachy shade, either…

You’ll be happier with the shadows. These were pigmented and blendable…

That aside, I still like the shadow colors…

Cruella: elf Limited Edition Disney Villain Palette

Today was a fun day. I swatched and played with my new elf Disney Villains palettes. These are limited editions so, if you want them, I think you better high-tail it to Walgreens before they are gone.

Each of the three palettes are getting their own post and review from me. That way, I don’t have one HUGE post and I can share more details from each.

I did an EOTD with the Cruella: Evil Everyday Eyes palette, so I’ll start with her…

My gosh! These lashes are beautiful. I look forward to trying them on. They are fuller than what I normally use so, it will be fun to try a new style.

The top 4 shadows are for the Day Evil look…

Puppy Love; Coat of Dreams; Cruelty; Sewage. For those that love neutral colors, this palette will make you happy. Cruelty is a very gorgeous, mossy green. These are the shadows I’ll show at the end for an EOTD look.

This is the first pencil and it can be used for lips and cheeks, as with all the pencils…

I’m floored with how creamy these pencils are. I bet I’m going to wish they were not so stubby in size.

Swatched out…

I swatched these in the same order shown in the palette. All but ‘Puppy Love’ are shimmer shadows. The eyeliner is jet black. I tried to make a steady line but the brush is not great, at all. You will notice there is a bit of crumbs with ‘Sewage’. Not terrible, as I swatch with a swab. But, what I wanted to show you in the second photo is just how pretty the pencil color is. Surprisingly, the pencils are not named.

Now for the Night Villain look…

Spoiled; Maniac; Little Beasts; Extinction. I hear cheers from the neutral shadow-loving people! ‘Little Beasts’ is the closest to a matte with these four. However, I hesitate to even call it a matte. I see just the slightest bit of sheen to it. And you will notice how crumbly ‘Extinction’ is. That’s just with using a swab to ‘gently’ brush over the powders.

Here they are swatched…

Seriously, that pencil is a hot color! I had to try that one out…

I love bold lips and the evening look pencil does not hold bold back. I got into it more with the day look shadows…

It’s a bit hard to tell, but I did use the same pencil on my lips to color my right cheek. I don’t have any makeup on my face; no foundation or powder….BARE!!! I didn’t put on any mascara either. So, I just did the Day Evil tutorial from the book, without the eye primer and, used the Night Villain pencil for my right cheek and for my lips.

Gosh (again)! These are very awesome. There are a few shadows that are crumbly but none of them are hard. The eyeliner brush is crap but, I like the smooth glide of the product. I found the shades easy to apply and blend together.

Cruella is my least favorite villain. Probably why ‘101 Dalmatians’ is my least favorite Disney movie too. Maybe it’s that Cruella isn’t deadly gorgeous as Maleficent and Evil Queen. She looks like a maniac, crazed woman, which of course, she is. Yet, all of that aside, I adore this palette. I feel I got better than my $10 I spent on this.

What is your opinion on Cruella’s palette for Evil Everyday Eyes?
