The Colourpop Misunderstood Palette: The Disney Villains Collection.

Today’s post is all about the Colourpop x Disney Villains Misunderstood eyeshadow palette. In this post I will talk about the formulas, the colours, the whole Colourpop experience as well as show you swatches and looks I’ve created.

First of all I would love to point out the packaging of this collection, it is beautiful. There is something about the villians that really fascinate me that made me want this palette over the princess one. The colours of this are more vibrant and rich compared to the princess one and it just caught my eyes.

My first impression when I first received the palette was that it was much more stunning in person, I could see the reflects and the true colours of especially the shimmer shades better than videos and pictures. The shimmer shades are absolutely incredible!

I had a great experience with the delivery and I had no trouble with reviving my parcel from America especially since they’ve got rid of the sneaky charges. This really put my mind at ease and I am much more likely to buy from them again with this, plus the free international shipping when you spend $50 was a nice little excuse to treat myself.

There are 15 shades in this palette, 5 of which are mattes and 10 of which are shimmers. Personally I don’t mind having more shimmer than matte shades because if I’m desperate to use another shade I can just dip into a different palette but that may bother you. I feel like the mattes are very staple and cohesive colours with the rest of the palette as you have a white, a black, a beige, a warmer orange and then for a bit of colour a dark blue. These mattes are all so pigmented and blendable which is all I want from it, they work so well together with minimal effort. Unlike the Sweet Talk Palette which I have reviewed, there are only two formulas in this palette which are mattes and shimmers, however the shimmers do have a few different sizes and textures to them which make them unique and beautiful. I personally feel like you can create everyday wearable looks (using the brown and orange transition colour and the more neutral shimmers) or a much more interesting and out there look with the more colourful shades. I have tried here to give you a mixture of both so that you can see how it can be worn!

After using this palette a few times I have noticed that some shades have much more chunky glitters which leave some mess in the palette and can cause fall out on the face; these shades have predominantly been Pain&Panic, Facile, and Sing. I personally would do my eyeshadow first if I was using these shades or even just this palette in general so that I definitely don’t ruin my base with it, especially since this palette has some darker colours within it. however this is the only negative I have to share with you and it is a problem which can be solved by using either a spray, a liquid product such as Duraline or doing eyeshadow first.

  1. First, I agree 100% about this palette being so much more stunning in person than it appeared online. I was originally underwhelmed until I saw the ColourPop Swatch Party with TrendMood lol – but so far I’ve been really enjoying this.

    Second, I really like how you overlay the shade names on your swatch pictures – very clean and clear way to show this.

    Finally, the Ursula-inspired look is EVERYTHING. Honestly, I’d love to see a tutorial or pictorial of how you created that look!!! Seeing how you play with color seriously inspires me!

    Thanks for sharing, girl!

  3. I don’t use makeup (eye makeup especially is tricky since I’m half blind without glasses), but this palette is one I’d pick up. Love the colours and your examples are amazing. Wish I could do it on myself, but it would take me years to learn. Great post 🙂

    1. I am the same I have to get really close to the mirror to see without my glasses haha. Thank you so much that’s so kind, I love the creative journey of make up and so I just practice until I feel confident. It’s definitely a hobby of mine. I’m glad you liked the palette and thank you for leaving me a lovely comment!
