MAC Venomous Villains Haul

Hello again everyone!
I don't usually post twice in one day but I'll make an exception for Venomous Villains ;)
I was really unsure of what I was going to get from the collection, so seeing it in person definitely helped. I didn't pick up as much as I had initally planned but I'm happy with everything I got.

The first thing I decided on purchasing was My Dark Magic Mineralize Eye Shadow from Maleficent's part of the collection, it certainly lived up to the promotional images. The sales assistant was wearing this foiled along with She Who Dares and it looked amazing.

The second item I got was Revenge Is Sweet Lipglass, again from Maleficent's part of the collection. I really like the sheer jelly consistensy of this - not too sheer that it doesn't have any colour payoff at all. It looks a bit of an intimidating deeper shimmery purple in the tube but it's a really nice sheer magenta shade. Perfect for layering over lipstick. I'm really considering going back for Violetta lipstick to wear under this.

And finally Strange Potion Lipglass from The Evil Queen's part of the collection. It's a shimmery milky pale peach with some pink tones to it. The colour payoff is quite opaque however I'd love to try layering this over Costa Chic lipstick, or even Barry M's Peachy Pink lipstick (which I have a slight obsession with).

I don't think the swatches give justice to the products in person, however here they are;

My Dark Magic, applied foiled, left and right side swatched separately - you can definitely see the difference in the colours more in the second image. Strange Potion lipglass is above Revenge Is Sweet Lipglass.
Apologies for the shoddy swatches!

And that's everyhing! I recieved all of the characters postcards with my purchase along with some Viva Glam stickers which I was rather excited about hehe. I went to MAC around 3pm and already everything I was purchasing was nearly sold out despite it only being released today!



  1. The eyeshadows in the Malificent collection were HUGE. The purple one was gorgeous though.

    The Glasgow store was mental today, but was more the nailpolishes that were going than the lip colours. I thought it would be the lip colours I'd be going crazy for but some of the beauty powders are perfect. I found myself swooning a little bit at Briar Rose. x

  2. Everything looks soo amazing! Really lovely haul :) x

  3. Oooh I wish I'd bought some of the lipglasses now they look so pretty! xx

  4. ahhh I was gonna go for the My Dark Magic eyeshadow (seeing as purple & pink are my fave colours) but I havent really got much blues in comparison so I bought them online on Tuesday, and they arrived today!
    Your Maleficent lipglass looks soooooooo nice, I want!! I bought the cruella lipglass (wicked ways) and its nice, but I never realised MAC lipglosses were so sticky! =(
    I'm happy with my coral-pink lipstick (toxic tale), its soo gorgeous, think Im gonna fit in a FOTD seeing as I wore it alll day =)


  5. When I see the mineralised shadows I kind of wish I got them and the last lip gloss looks really pretty x

  6. I like your choices I cant wait to see you use the shadow. I like mine but I am stuck on how to use them!! x

  7. I was too late to the party,the collection sold out! I wanted that eye shadow so bad too ;(
