Not only is it my blog anniversary, it is also my birthday month!! In sixteen days I will a quarter of a century young! Haha. It's so surreal but exciting at the same time. So this month will contain a lot of celebrating not just on my part but also for you guys!
To start off the celebration I'm going to show you guys my MAC Venomous Villains haul! This was such an anticipated line and I couldn't wait for this line to launch! I adore Disney and adore the classic villains. The evil laughs, the sinister grins, and conniving thoughts are key characters for Disney villains and I feel that MAC captured the essence of each with the names and packaging.
Some people didn't like the packaging and thought it was tacky, but I really liked it. Perhaps the only thing about the packaging I didn't like was that it wasn't a matte finish. I hate the finger prints, I feel I'm ruining the product. I know I'm not but I don't want my fingerprints all over it! I will agree that the packaging would have been exquisite had it been the sketches that were on the boxes.
My only other gripe is perhaps the selection of some of the Villains. I was actually shocked that they didn't include Ursula! She's an iconic classic Disney Villain who definitely cared about she looked. I mean who can forget the scene where she's talking to Ariel while moussing her hair and applying her lipstick from her clamshell? Perhaps MAC wanted some diversity and chose Dr. Faciller, but if they had wanted a guy for the line, what about Gaston? He's one of the first metrosexual's I've ever encountered. However, getting that gripe out of the way, I truly adored most of the products that came with this line. Out of the four that MAC selected my two favorites were Maleficent and The Evil Queen. I love Sleeping Beauty and one of the reasons is cause of Maleficent. She's so classy and evil. Muahahahaha!
All right, enough with my rambling, here's the haul and little blurbs of what I think. I actually made collages with the pictures just because I had so many! I got something from every villain except Dr. Faciller, just because the pigments didn't stand out to me and the powders look fun but I didn't know if I would ever really use them. If you want to look at the product in more detail, click on the images to enlarge!
Here is a shot of the entire line
Bite of An Apple Blush. The Evil Queen looks down on you and your paleness! This blush has a red undertone and is heavily pigmented. Apply this will a light hand!
Here are the beauty powders. I don't like Maleficent here. She doesn't look as calm and chic as she does in the other ones. Anywho, Briar Rose is a gorgeous blue pink powder while Oh So Fair is a subtle soft pink with some shimmer. It's very subtle that it may be hard to show up on darker skin tones.
Beauty and Gardens sent it to me! I actually do like it very much, if it wasn't sold out I would probably get a backup. I will say that you can't have chapped lips for this product, unless you wanna look like a hot mess haha.
I hope you all enjoyed my haul, let me know what you think and what you guys picked up from this line! Next entry is going to really special so sit tight while I get everything together! <3
