E.L.F. The Evil Queen Look Book Palette Review & Swatches
The E.L.F. The Evil Queen Look Book Palette ($9.99) one of the four new E.L.F. Cosmetics Disney Villains Palettes that are available exclusively at Walgreens for Halloween and Fall 2013.
These palettes includes essentials for lips and eyes in a cute Disney Villain inspired packaging.
Let’s take a look at the Evil Queen’s Look Book Palette!
E.L.F. The Evil Queen Look Book Palette is a $9.99 palette that features a full size eyeshadow palette containing eight eyeshadows as well as a pencil liner, liquid liner, brush, eyeshadow primer, and lip color gloss.
Last year’s palette had the shadow palette built right into the compact but this year it is a removable palette. The packaging on this year’s palette features a watercolor print of the Evil Queen on the outside of the package and has flip to open design that has instructions for creating an eye and night look on the inner flats.
I do believe the palette design is what you’re paying into as most of the items included are mini with the brush and shadow palette being the full size products included.
Here’s the exact products you get:
Shadow Palette with shades Huntsman, Jealously, Majesty, Witch, Vanity, and Dark Magic
- E.L.F. Liquid Liner
- E.L.F. Eyeshadow Brush
- E.L.F. Eyeliner Pencil (mini)
- E.L.F. Eyeshadow Primer (mini)
- E.L.F. Lip Color Gloss (mini)
- E.L.F. Lengthening and Defining Mascara (deluxe size)
Last year’s palettes contained six shadows but this year you get a total of eight and thankfully they did away with the horrible cheek and lip pencil and replaced it with a lipgloss. The lipglosses in the Evil Queen’s book and all the other books I tried so far is actually a great formula. It’s quite pigmented, has a plush feel, and offers some shine. I’m wearing it in my photo below!
The shadow palette in this book was very nice with a texture that was a bit powdery but was still quite velvety with fairly good pigment. My issues with the shadows were they seemed to run together and go muddy when blending so you have a little patience when applying. I’ve never really like E.L.F. Shadow Primer as it doesn’t really prolong the wear of my shadows. The eye pencil is the worst part of these books as it is SO dense and so DRY and tugs awfully! The liquid liner has excellent pigment, applies very well, but I notice it peels a bit as the day progresses. The brush is also a great piece of the collection as it is soft with dense bristles that do not shed. Although I typically love the Studio Brushes I dislike the Essential ones. This is an Essential one and quite good!
Witch, Vanity, Dark Magic
Huntsman, Jealousy, Majesty
Lipgloss, Shadow Primer, Liquid Liner, Pencil Liner
E.L.F. The Evil Queen Look Book Palette is quite fun. I think in general these palettes have some hits and misses but for the most part they are more collector’s pieces than anything else as some of the colors included with many of the books aren’t really inspiring Villain looks for me…! But none the less I think they are adorable sets!
