De-Vil eyeshadow is from the Cruella de Vil portion of Venomous Villains, natch. It is a rich bronze eyeshadow with a warm orange undertone – I’m skipping calling it a copper colour because it doesn’t have any of the pink base I’d normally associate with copper – in the excellent Veluxe Pearl formulation.
The pigmentation in De-Vil is reasonably high. It’s not that rockstar level of pigmentation I associate with brands like Too Faced or Sugar Pill, but it certainly is smooth and applies without needing endless layers to get some colour to actually show up.
From top to bottom:
- MAC – Antiqued eyeshadow
- MAC – De-Vil eyeshadow
- MAC – Coppering eyeshadow
- MAC – Firespot eyeshadow
- MAC – Expensive Pink eyeshadow
- Too Faced – Socialite eyeshadow.
So I guess the real question is, ‘is De-Vil just Coppering under another name?’, to which the answer is super easy: no.
No, they’re not the same shadow. De-Vil has a stronger orange undertone whereas Coppering, despite its super orange look in the pan, reveals a pink undertone when swatched out. If you combined Coppering and Firespot, then you’d have De-Vil.
That being said, De-Vil is an easy eyeshadow to skip if you already own Coppering. The difference is going to be totally negligible on the eye. You can’t even split them by finish, as both De-Vil and Coppering are in the superluxe Veluxe Pearl finish!
Only two more pieces until the Venomous Villains madness has finished, I promise. In the meantime, take a peek at the Venomous Villains tag in case there are any products you might have missed!
