e.l.f. Disney Villainous Villains Makeup Book Cruella de Vil Evil Everyday Eyes Review!

Hey True Believers!

Welcome to the first makeup review of the month of October! Because October is my favorite month all year, due to all the awesome fall goodness, I wanted to do a special set of reviews for this month, centered around Halloween! e.l.f. teamed up with Disney and came out with 3 limited edition makeup books for sale only at select Walmarts around the country (They can be found in the Halloween aisle with the costumes and what not). Each makeup book centers on an evil villainess; Cruella, The Evil Queen, and Maleficent. This week, I’ll be reviewing the Cruella de Vil makeup book for you!


*This is a pic heavy post!

e.l.f.’s Rundown:

Do you dare to be villainous? Each Limited Edition Disney Villainous Villains Makeup Book is a collectible makeup set that is sure to reflect your gorgeously evil inner diva, featuring the infamous Disney Villains: Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians, Evil Queen from Snow White and Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty.

Each all-in-one book includes the must-have makeup essentials and a step-by-step guide to create your favorite Disney villain look for both day and night, so you can be beautifully wicked for any occasion.

Each book includes:
8 Eyeshadows
2 Lip & Cheek Color Pencils
1 Eyeshadow Primer
1 Liquid Eyeliner
1 set of False Eyelashes
1 Lash Adhesive Glue
1 Built-in Mirror

My Overall Thoughts:

Definitely a cute idea and I love the theme, but they aren’t a must have unless you are a hardcore Disney collector or you really love the villains (like I do). The eyeshadows were okay. The 2 matte shadows were horrible. They were chalky and didn’t apply smoothly. They also lacked pigmentation. The shimmers were only good over a GOOD primer. I’m reviewing them all the same because the formula on all the shimmers were identical to me. The e.l.f. primer is horrid and doesn’t make the eyeshadows pop at all, so I would recommend you using a good primer. I used Lime Crime’s primer under all but the one set of swatches so you could see the difference in how they perform over the two different primers.

The eyeliner had no staying power after it set, and I was able to rub it off with out a lot of work.

The two lip and cheek pencils were also just okay, although the red one was more pigmented and easier to apply than the pink/peach colored one. To use them as a cheek stain, I would put it on your finger first and dab it onto  your cheek, then blend it out. The red pencil definitely seemed more of a lip pencil than a cheek and the pink pencil seemed more suited to be a cheek color, although you could use it for either with no problem.

  1. Blah, I don’t like lip & cheek colors that come in pencil form like that. Good idea comparing the shadows over two different primers. I actually wondered how the e.l.f. primer worked, but it’s clearly subpar. The one cool thing I like about this palette is the book where you can flip Cruella’s face and see the day/night looks.

  2. I don’t know if it is the same formula or not, but usually I really like elf’s eye primer. I agree it doesn’t make shadows pop but it does make them last. I thought that it was bases that are supposed to make shadows pop, not primers. Maybe I’m just accustomed to disappointing products ^.^ I have high hopes for veganized Lime Crime’s primer!

    1. I like my primer to make my eyeshadow last and to also help pigmentation. Depending on the color and quality of an eyeshadow I usually don’t need a base. For matte, light colors I use a, base because of my skin tone.

  3. Great review! Thank you! ^_^

    I’ve been debating on buying one of these, but I’m still not sure. I’m not much of a makeup collector. However, I don’t want to make any final decision just yet until I see the other two reviews. =)
