Mirror, mirror… on the wall: Mac Unveils New ‘Venomous Villians’ Line
It’s nearly Halloween, the time for all things vampishly villainous to climb into the cosmetic’s driver seat and take a dramatic little spin. We can think of no better beauty role-models to turn to for our walk into the dark side than those mistresses (and one master) of mayhem: Diva Maleficent, Cruella de Vil, Dr. Facilier and Snow White’s Evil Queen – that’s right: Disney Villains.
MAC Cosmetics obviously agrees and, as threatened via a Spring 2010 press release, they’ve unleashed a line of cosmetics inspired by those devastatingly deviant darlings.
Available at U.S. cosmetics counters now, and coming soon to European counters (Oct. 2010), this line includes shadows, lipsticks and glosses, powders, nail lacquer and even a grease paint stick – all celebrating the ravishingly dark side of beauty. Don’t get the wrong idea though, this collection (which includes four separate mini-collections) is already garnering raves from cosmetics reviewers everywhere.
Priced from $13 – $25, I’d give this line raves for product names alone: There is a limited edition burgundy plum lipstick aptly called “Dark Deed”, a soft coral-pink matte blush named “Bite of An Apple”, and a limited edition red with red multi-changing pearl effect nail lacquer called, what else “Bad Fairy.” With packaging featuring these four Disney darlings, this collection is… well… downright collectable. And don’t forget to snap up the MAC “I’m So Vain” pocket mirror – because… let’s just admit it… sometimes we are!
