Limited Edition Disney Villains Collection: Maleficent Cast a Spell Beauty Book8:16 AM
For the last year or two, Walgreens has been keeping us Disney addicts very, very happy. We cannot go very long without hearing word about a new limited edition featuring our favorite princesses. They don't leave out the villains we love to hate, though. And the queen of the Disney villains is Maleficent. She has a style all her own, which is why I needed this Beauty Book.
Normally I save the packaging for last, but this situation calls for it to come first. You are probably familiar with the beauty books done by e.l.f. in the past. This one is done the same way, but this collection is not done by e.l.f. The packaging is a hard cardboard that opens up like a book. Of course. The outside has a screenshot of Maleficent and her castle and the dragon she becomes is in the background. Naturally shades of green, grey, and purple are prominent. It has a magnetic closure and a mirror on the left side. There is a piece of plastic covering up the products, which gets in the way. I may end up cutting mine off.
Shades and What is Included:
- 9 Eyeshadows (0.18 oz a piece):
- Slumber: satin pale lilac
- Slided: satin pale lavender
- Vanish: shimmering white with silver sparkles
- Fairy: matte plum brown
- Satin: grey toned purple
- Spindle: satin green
- Dragon: black with silver micro glitter
- Spellbound: lavender with silver micro glitter
- Bramble: dark purple with silver micro glitter
- Eyeshadow Brush
- Black Liquid Eyeliner Called Diablo (0.12 oz)
- Mini Lipstick in Revenge: a metallic pinky red (.08 oz)
- Blush in Evil Enchantress: shimmering peach (0.09 oz)
- Sheer Magic Eyeshadow Primer (.19 fl oz)
|Slumber, Slided, Vanish|
|Fairy, Satin, Spindle|
|Dragon, Spellbound, Bramble|
If you are a Disney fanatic like myself, this could be worth picking up. The quality is good overall, despite the eyeshadows being patchy and a little difficult to blend. I included an FOTD so you can see how the colors work on the face. I used Slided on the eyelid, Fairy in the crease, Vanish as a brow highlight, and Spellbound along the lower lash line.
The collection also consists of nail polishes by Orly. This one is called Mistress of All Evil and it has an oil slick/duochrome thing going on. In the picture below, it looks red. But in other light, it will look gold or green. It is a unique color and I definitely do not have anything like it in my collection.
I also have the palette inspired by the evil queen from Snow White that I will be trying out later in the week. This is a limited edition collection and it is exclusive to Walgreens.
I hope you have had a great weekend! It is finally feeling like fall here in Georgia, so I am off to spend some time outside before it heats back up again.
See you soon!
