Review, Swatchfest, & Tutorial: e.l.f. & Disney Sinister Smoky Eye

e.l.f. Sinister Smoky Eye Palette

e.l.f. Sinister Smoky Eye Palette
e.l.f. has partnered with Disney to create three limited edition, villainous palettes!  The Sinister Smoky eye is Maleficent inspired and filled with smoky purples, blacks, and green. Although I have both this and the Cruella de Vil inspired palette, I knew Maleficent would be the first one to play with because she was my favorite Disney Villain (and most feared).

The bulk of the review is in the embedded video (at the bottom of the post), but I will go over the talking points here as well. The powders are on par with other e.l.f. shadows - not all are stellar, but most can be packed on to achieve good pigmentation. While the lashes included have a thick, somewhat rigid band, I love the shape and they aren't "fake lash shiny" like so many cheap lashes are. A primer from the essential line is included and works wonders for some of the more sheer shades in the palette. Rather than including a blush, there are two "lip and cheek colors". While I'm not certain these aren't just repackaged lip liners, I used one on my cheeks and didn't hate the results. Additionally, the colors are plums and definitely something one could wear throughout the fall and winter seasons. Last is the liquid liner and, although I would have loved to see a black liner in this palette, the glitter liner is very nice and good for a drama boost. For $10, this palette is pricier than other e.l.f. palettes that include more shadows, liners, blushes, etc., but I think you are paying for the Disney name. Worth it? You tell me!
