What DOES Disney have against eyeshadow, anyway?

Clearly, some people see the Disney 'verse in a sexier light than I do--check out J. Scott Campbell's illustrations of pneumatic Disney princesses (I can't believe the Little Mermaid's seashells can rein those suckers in!), and news of MAC Cosmetics' "Venomous Villains" beauty line. Would that really sell? Because I can't imagine wanting to wear eyeshadow like this. Or this. Or this...

Very long ago, Mad Magazine had a wonderful article of different magazines reviewing Disney's Snow White. One was a fashion magazine. It included a picture of Snow White with "WRONG" across it and a picture of the Wicked Queen with "RIGHT" across it, plus a discussion of how fabulous the Wicked Queen looked versus how hopelessly unfashionable Snow White was. Decades later, the make-up industry agrees.
