MAC Venomous Villians Collection Review + Swatches! :D

The looooong awaited MAC-Disney collaboration is finally here - featuring Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians, the Evil Queen from Snow White, Maleficient from Sleeping Beauty as well as Dr. Facilier from Princess and the Frog! :D

Truth be told i'm not into even half the colors they have in this collection, but i'll have to say that i am really impressed by the beauty powders! They're soo pigmented and soft and just simply beautiful!! :D I'm also kinda bummed that they didnt cast Yzma from The Emperor's New Groove - she's my favouritest Disney villian ever! She's hilarious and absolutely silly! lol!! :D

Lets start with Cruella! I thought they captured the essence of Cruella quite well with these colors! :D

Lipsticks (US$15.50 / RM70):

Innocence, Beware! (Cremesheen) - Light yellow pink. Not a unique color, but its pretty nevertheless! :D
Heartless (Amplified) - Cherry red. Not for the faint of heart - this color is just simply bold and stunning!! I thought it has more blue tones in it than straight up cherry though, but this should be flattering on alot of skintones!! :D

Lipglasses (US$15.50 / RM70):

Devilishly Stylish - Light nude with gold pearl. Another not so unique color, but i think that it would look beautiful layered over any lipstick! :)
Wicked Ways - Deep fuchsia with pink pearl. Hmmm... this definitely doesn't look fuchsia to me! lol! It looks like a bold blue red! :D

Eyeshadows (US$15.50 / RM62):

Sweet Joy (Frost) - Frosted creamy pale gold. This is abit too yellow to be a highlighter, but it compliments De-Vil perfectly! In fact, i think that its probably one of those universally flattering shades that can compliment just any colors! :D
De-Vil (Veluxe Pearl) - Rich copper. This shade is sooo beautiful! It reminds me of a less gold Firespot from the Moonbathe collection in 2007, and the texture is just buttery smooth! :D
Carbon (Matte) - Intense black. This probably applies better with a brush than it swatches. This is a permenant shade! :)

Blush (US$19.50 / RM85):

Darkly My Dear (Matte) - Dirty brown plum. This reminds me of a less pink Notable from last year's Makeup Art Cosmetics collection.

Beauty Powder (US$25 / RM105):

Her Own Devices - Cool nude. This beauty powder is pigmented enough to be used as a blush (in fact, all beauty powders from this collection are! :D). This gives such a natural glow to my face! Loves it to bits!! :D

Next, lets take a look at the Evil Queen (lol!):

Lipsticks (US$15.50 / RM70):

Toxic Tale (Satin) - Bright coral. This is such a bright shade that just screams for attention. I can imagine it looking totally off and ridiculous against my yellowish skintone! :P
Sinister (Lustre) - Soft brown plum. This one doesn't go on evenly, and as with all Lustres, the color pay off is sheer. The swatch above is achieved after swiping like 8 times! >.<

Lipglasses (US$15.50 / RM70):

Strange Potion - Soft coral pink. This can be built up to be opaque, but if you sheer it out it looks absolutely beautiful! :D
Hot House - Deep raspberry with pink pearl. This is another super hot shade! Methinks that it would look gorgeous on darker skintones! :D

Eyeshadows (US$15.50 / RM62):

Her Alter Image (Veluxe Pearl) - Light violet. This one looks quite similar to the Crazy Cool eyeshadow from the Dare to Wear collection released months ago. I love the smooth texture this one has! :D
Vainglorious (Frost) - Bronze burgundy. This reminds me a little the Cranberry eyeshadow in the pan, but it swatches bit browner.
Vile Violet (Matte) - Deep dirty blue purple. This swatches badly - it feels quite chalky and hard! >.<

Blush (US$19.50 / RM85):

Bite of an Apple - Soft coral pink. This is slightly less coral than Hipness, and it doesn't take much to start looking totally ridiculous so you'll need to adopt a light hand with this one! :D

Beauty Powder (US$25 / RM105):

Oh So Fair - Clean pink with gold pearl. This one is super pretty as well!! :D It gives such a pretty flush to the skin!! :D


Mineralize Eye Shadows swatch left: shade on left, middle: shade on right, right: both mixed.

Lipsticks (US$15.50 / RM70):

Violetta (Amplified) - Bright clean violet purple. This purple shade is a permenant color, and somewhat a hit or miss color!! I know it doesn't quite work for me... >.<
Dark Deed (Amplified)Burgundy plum. Such a beautifully dark color! I actually thought of buying this one just because its so beautiful!! :D

Lipglasses (US$15.50 / RM70):

Revenge is Sweet - Light yellow purple. This jellyish lipglass is just too cute! :D It applies sheerer than the color in the tube, which is nice because i for one cannot rock purple on my lips! lol!! :D
Wrong Spell - Deep plum with pink purple. This lipglass doesn't go on smoothly! :(

Mineralize Eye Shadow Duo (US$21 / RM85):

These are definitely the stars of the entire collection IMHO! They're just beautifully pigmented and oh so smooth, plus the colors are soooo gorgeous!! :D

My Dark Magic - Deep pink with pink pearl / Deep plum with purple pearl.
She Who Dares - Deep navy with blue pearl / Deep forest green with lime green pearl.

Beauty Powder (US$25 / RM105):

Briar Rose - Soft violet pink with pearl. This actually reminds me a little of the Summer Rose beauty powder released with the A Rose Romance collection then later with Give Me Liberty of London! :)

Nail Lacquers (US$13 / RM42):

2 coats each! Sorry for the crap application! :P

These polishes are really special since they have this duo-chrome effect! My personal favourite? Mean & Green of course!! :D

Formidable! - Teal green with pink multi-changing pearl.
Bad Fairy - Red with red multi-changing pearl.
Mean & Green - Teal green with pink multi-changing pearl.

Finally, lets take a look at Dr. Facilier! :D

Lipgelee (US15.50 / RM72):
Resort Life - Off white with pink pearl. This goes on almost nude, and is super duper sparkly! :D This is a repromote from the Lillyland collection.

Pigments (US$19.50 / RM82):

Melon - Soft bright golden peach. This is a permenant color! :D
Brash & Bold - Bright magenta.
Push the Edge - Deep bright purple with pearl.

Magically Cool Liquid Powder (US$29.50 / RM128):

These are too interesting!! Anybody remember the old Prescriptives Magic Liquid Powder? I was lemming for it many years back but cannot afford it, and when i finally can, it pulled out of my little island!! T_T Now this is my chance to get me some cool powder!! lol!! :D It does feel like water once on your skin, but it balls up somewhat so you'll have to buff it into your skin quickly after application!

Truth & Light - Sheer shimmer that reflects silver and pink. This appears close to nothing on the skin, but you can definitely see it (especially if you take pictures with flash)! This makes a super pretty highlighter (super cool too! Hehehe!! :D)
Cajun - Sheer bronze shimmer that reflects gold. This will make a lovely blush for medium skintypes IMHO!! :D
I'm So Vain Mirror (US$12 / RM75):
I'm soooo suprised that they decided to put a mirror here instead of with Maleficient (Mirror, mirror on the wall! Hellooooooo???)! :D I don't like the image on the compact though... feels like he's shouting at me! >.<
That's all for now! :D I'll be leaving tomorrow for a short holiday so bear with my late replies k (anybody want to guess where am i headed to? :D :D)! There'll be scheduled posts to keep you all entertained in my absence, so dun leave me k! Haha!! :D Talk to you all soon!! Cheers! :D


  1. i thought mirror mirror on the wall is by the evil queen from snow white?:)

    Nice swatches! i'm lemming for toxic tale! :)

    Love your blog!

  2. Yeah! So i find it strange that they decided to put it with Dr. Facilier instead! >.<

    Toxic Tale is HOT!! :D Lemme know when you get it k! :D

  3. I've seen this collection , I think in Duty Free Korea, but I wasn't that inspired to look at the counter :) Maybe I'm not into those villains! hahaha

  4. I'm really really into the lipglasses from the Evil Queen. I've been staring at Temptalia's swatches for a very very very long time. Rm 70 each? Sigh~

  5. nothing from this collection really grabs me :-/ but still, thanks for the swatches! haha. I love yzma too. At one point I attempted to mimic her evil laugh after she was turned into a cat

  6. i bought all the beauty powders!!! love it so what did u buy??

  7. Those beauty powders look gorgeous. Thanks for the wonderful swatches again!

  8. I regret not getting Her Own Devices and Innocence, Beware.. and I'm loving Darkly My Dear much more than I thought I would. Too bad it's too late for most of this stuff where I'm at. Thanks for the swatches!

  9. I'm a fan of Yzma too!! Thought I was the only one. :-)

    Nice review you did. Now I got my own lemming started.. :-D

  10. Thanks for the swatches. Toxic Tale and the nail polishes look very pretty!
