Venomous Villains - Maleficent

Okay! I figured I had to get the Maleficent part of the Venomous Villains collection up, as it is now all on the MAC website. I really like the Maleficent collection, although the lip colors seem a little less wearable, but I'll get to that later.

Here are all my goodies closed.

All my goodies open.

Swatched (left to right)
Briar Rose Beauty Powder, Dark Deed lipstick (amplified), Violetta lipstick (amplified),
Wrong Spell lipglass, Revenge Is Sweet lipglass.

Swatched (same as above)
in natural light.

Briar Rose is kind of a purpley pink.
Probably my favorite Beauty Powder of the collection,
even more than Oh So Fair.

Dark Deed & Violetta.
I think both these lipsticks require a light hand.
Dark Deed can look ... well too dark, while Violetta is
obviously purple when done heavy. But applied with
a light hand they both look amazing on. Try them out.
Violetta is a perm item at PRO stores, so if you have
second thoughts, you can wait and think on it.

Revenge is Sweet and Wrong Spell.
I am sure Wrong Spell would look lovely on someone
with darker skin. On me it just looks weird.
Revenge is Sweet is a nice purpley pink shade.
Good for everyday wear.

Bad Fairy, Formidable! and Mean & Green nail lacquers.

Bad Fairy, Formidable! and Mean & Green
nail lacquers swatched. I could not do this on my fingers.
I did such a bad job, and needed to redo my nails for work.
So sorry, nail polish on paper it is! These are really odd.
I love love love Bad Fairy, and think it is the jem
of the nail polishes. They are certainly fun!

I liked the Maleficent collection. I just wish the MAC nail polishes were better quality, but I will love these colors anyway! My favorite items from the Maleficent collection are:
♥ Briar Rose Beauty Powder, Such a lovely color! Really, the beauty powders in this whole collection are stunning.
♥ Violetta lipstick. It can look scary, but play around with it (dab it on, don't smear, and you'll be good). It will look wonderful on.
♥ Bad Fairy nail lacquer. Such a fun nail polish to play around with. It will be great for fall!

As for Dr. Facilier, I only got the lip gelee. Then I regretted it and pre-ordered the Magically Cool Liquid Powders. So ... my one act of restraint didn't go well. Oh well, I'm still looking forward to picking them up on the 30th.

What are you thinking of getting from this collection? Gonna go wild, or try to stay sane?


  1. I only ordered Bad Fairy of the nail polishes, because I'm going out to try to find the Orly dupes for the other two this weekend. :) I posted what I got from the collections in today's entry. Now just to wait until Thursday...ugh!

  2. Wendy: I am almost thinking of picking up the Orly dupes, as the MAC quality is a little iffy. But I am trying to be reasonable nail polish wise, as I did just get some new China Glaze colors. I'm so excited for the collection to hit stores. I want to visit it all when I pop by Macys. That sounds so dorky, but it is true.

  3. Wrong Spell looks so gorgeous, I want it's lovliness. Sadface.
    A lot of the others are amazing too, envy.

  4. Shopping Addict: Really? I find that the hardest one for me to wear. Well, you could always get just one or two items from this collection. That wouldn't be too unreasonable.

  5. True. I'll have to try and get that Wrong Spell, I love the look of it so.

  6. Great haul! I was planning to get a lot of Maleficent stuff, but when I saw it in person at the unveiling, I didn't like anything. I wanted to at least get Briar Rose, but it was too cool for me! =(

  7. Linh: Yea, I can understand being iffy about the Maleficent stuff. I do think the Violetta lipstick is wonderful. I actually found that the villain I was the least excited for, Cruella (I'm excluding Dr. Facilier because he is off the radar for me) I liked the most.

    Ooo, will you do a post of what you got from this collection?

  8. Thanks for your comment. I really like your blog.

    You got quite a few things from Maleficent. I still want to get the other two nail polishes
