I know MAC's new collection Venomous Villians is already old, most people picked up what they wanted from it, swatched their goodies etc. but here are my two cents anyway :) I was initially going to pass this collection up as I didn't care for the packaging (at all!) and the swatches I've seen online just didn't impress me too much. By the time I got to my MAC store last Wednesday the collection was already up on MAC's website. Colors shown on MAC's website were way off from the actual colors I've seen in person at the store. Before going to the store, I - kind of- wanted the nude lipstick called Innocence, Beware!. To me it looks nothing like it does online. I think it's a very pretty color but it just wouldn't work on me. I realized this only when I went to the store. I have also realized how pretty Bite of an Apple blush and Vainglorious eyeshadow are! So I went with these two beauties which I truly love in stead of getting something just for the sake of a new collection.
|Boxes look much better than actual packaging in my opinion.|
|Cheap isn't a word I would normally use for MAC packaging or products but for the packaging in question I will just have to!|
|Bite of an Apple is a bright and beautiful coral-pink and matte blush|
It does look super bright in the pan as you can see but so does MAC's Dollymix and neither one of them are that scary once applied. I think Bite of an Apple was a great addition to my blush collection as I do not have any blush even close this shade. It does apply opaque but I found it to be easily blendable.
|Vainglorious is a golden, bronzey burgundy with a hint of purple in it, it's in frost finish.|
This is such an uncommon and pretty shade and I think it's perfect for fall! I think it would look gorgeous as a crease color with Grain (my favorite neutral ever!) all over. It can even be used on lower lash line for a pop of color. I can never go wrong with MAC eye shadows in frost finish in fact 90% of my favorites are in frost finish.
What has everyone else got from Venomous Villians?
