MAC VENOMOUS VILLAINS

So I figured by now all of you have probably seen all the products, if not in person than on line, so there no sense in me doing it again and making a boring video. And, I really think you guys are more interested in what I got and why and what i didn't get and why. So here goes....

MILAFICENT COLLECTION

WHAT I GOT AND WHY

Mineral Eye Shadow Duos - She Who Dares & My Dark Magic
I got both of these partly because I just had to and if you have an addiction such as myself you will understand that, and partly because they are gorgeous and I love the MAC mineral eye shadows. I swatched them next to my Style Black mineral shadows, Young Punk and Blue flame and they are quite different, so I was relieved at that. The green side of She Who Dares is my favorite.

Lipstick - Violetta & Lipglass in Revenge is Sweet
This one is one of those must have, the packaging is so cool and the lip color is amazing. This lip color is actually a pro color and you can purchase at any time. It's like Show Orchid and Up The Amp had a baby. So so pretty and right on trend for fall. The amplified formulas are highly pigmented and stain the lips. I have been wearing it with the Magenta lip liner. The lipglass is fairly sheer on it's own, you can pair it with the magenta liner for a stronger look.

Lipstick - Dark Deed & Wrong Spell Lipglass
This is a super vampy pair. I cannot resist these colors, especially in the amplified formula. It's super dark on me, but I love it. I have been wearing these with Velvatella lip liner. It's an exact match. Pair the gloss with the Velvetella liner for a softer look.

Beauty Powder - Briar Rose
I love beauty powders and I really wish they were part of the regular line. They blend so nicely and when you use them under a blush the effect is a really beautiful blend. This beauty powder however can be worn by itself. It is very pigmented and can be worn as a blush. I don't have a blush this color so of course I had to have it and you get the bonus of the compact. I know I have seen some video on how to depot these and put in your blot powder. Let me know if you have seen that.

WHAT I DIDN'T GET AND WHY

Nail Polishes - Flat out...I like the Orly polishes better and I already had purchased some of them. There is also no special packaging on these.


EVIL QUEEN COLLECTION

WHAT I GOT AND WHY

Blush - Bite of the Apple
This is so pretty and very pigmented and it's a matte shade, which are my favorite kind of blushes because I can add my own highlight.

WHAT i DIDN'T GET AND WHY

Eye Shadows - I have soooo many eye shadows it's embarrassing. Plus if I don't depot them and put them in my pallet they will never get used and I don't want to do that. I wouldn't back to MAC them, right?

Lipsticks
I wish wish wish I would have gotten Toxic Tail it's so vibrant and pretty, but I have Impassioned and it looks so similar. I didn't get Sinister either because I'm not a huge fan of the Lusters, not enough color pay off.

Lipglass
I really kinda thought these were pretty but nothing that's not already in my collection.

Beauty Powder
I have one exactly like this one.


CRUELLA COLLECTION

WHAT I GOT AND WHY

Lipsticks - Heartless and Innocents, Beware!
Heartless is just one of those classic reds that never goes out of style. Believe it or not Russian Red is the only real red lipstick I have. Innocents, Beware! is like a pink version of Shy Girl which is one of my all time favorite lipsticks.

Lipglass - Wicked Ways
Of course I had to get this one to wear with Heartless. I haven't tried it on it's own yet, but I suspect I will wear it with the Cherry lip liner.

Blush - Darkly My Dear
Again, one I didn't have in my collection and a matte finish. This is a beautiful mauve color, perfect for fall.

WHAT I DIDN'T GET AND WHY

Eye Shadows - Same reason I didn't get the Evil Queen shadows above.

Lipglass - Devilishly Stylish
I didn't get this one because I wanted to wear the Wicked Ways lipstick with Boy Bait Creamsheen Glass. I did't want to take away from the lip color with shimmer.

Beauty Powder - Her Own Devices
Yeah, it just didn't do it for me, not sure why


DR. FACILIER

WHAT I GOT AND WHY

Magically Cool Liquid Powder - Truth and Light and Cajun
I got both of these because they are so weird and cool, literally. This would have been a good product for a summer launch. I had heard so much about these powders when Prescriptives went out of business, I just had to try them. They have a real pretty shimmer. I'm really not sure how I'm going to use these. I will be doing some experimenting with them.

Mirror - I'm So Vain
Great mirror and I lost my mirror I kept in my makeup bag in my purse. It's been driving me crazy to this was a no brainer for me. I'm actually not that crazy about the image they picked for the cover, but oh well. There are two mirrors and they take up the size of the compact and they're large. You can see your whole face in it and it has a magnified side as well, which I like for applying lip liners, eye liners and such.

WHAT I DIDN'T GET AND WHY

Pigments
I have all of them already :)

LipGelee
Not a huge fan of the Gelee's I passed on this with the Lilly collection as well.

Greasepaint Pencil
So difficult to work with and the color was not original enough for me to mess with it.


I hope you all enjoyed this post. Please comment and let me know your thoughts!

  1. This was a great post, very informative and I enjoyed it so much more than the five hundred boring videos I saw of everyone's haul of the VV collection. MUCH better this was (I sound like Yoda there). :)
