I am back with a peak at one of MAC's newer collection. It is MAC Maleficent. This collection has been in the making for years. There was a collection released called Venomous Villains a few years ago. The Maleficent items sold out the fastest. She is my favorite of all the Disney villains. I mean how are you evil, fierce and beat! LOL.
This is released just before the movie starring Angelina Jolie. She is also the face of the MAC collection. If you haven't seen the commercials for the movie, here is the collection photo:
This photo does not even show the special effects and crazy contouring. The collection is small and does not contain any bright colors. The makeup has a Maleficent design and does not qualify for the pro discount.
Here is the makeup courtesy of maccosmetics.com.
The eyeshadow quad:($44.00)
The colors are composed of some MAC regulars such as Carbon, Goldmine and Concrete. Browndown is seen so often at MAC that it might as well be permanent if it isn't. If you are not able to snatch up the palette, you can build a palette with three of the four colors. Colors such as Saddle can serve as the brown. This is a good starter palette for those who are new to makeup and even for those that want a travel palette full of staples.
Next we have the Maleficent Pentulmate Eyeliner in Rapidblack:($21.50)
This is perfect for that Angelina cat eye in the blackest of black. Use the very tip for a thin line and more of the body for a thicker line on your upper lid.
Next we have Maleficent Eyebrows in Fling. ($17.50) This is the perfect color for someone with light eyebrows. This is also part of the permanent collection as well as some great other colors.
Next we have MAC lashes with the Maleficent design on the package. These are the 30 lash which are individuals. They are to be added for fullness or just at the corner for a little drama. They are $17.50.
Next we have the Maleficent 36 lash for $17.50. It also has the Maleficent design on the box. It is a perfectly shaped lash that can be reused if properly cared for.
The Maleficent pro longwear lipgloss is a beautiful red gloss that can be worn alone or over the lipstick. ($22.00) With the pro longwear formula it will last throughout the day:
The collection also boasts a gorgeous red lipstick in the amplified formula. It is called True Love's Kiss. This is a red with blue undertones. It is great for a variety of skin tones. It is currently sold out online at Maccosmetics. The price for this beauty is $17.50. Here it is below:
There is a Maleficent pro longwear lipliner called Kiss me Quick. It is a beautiful yellow-red that compliments the lipstick and lipgloss. The lip pencil has the Maleficent packaging. It is priced at $21.50.
This collection would not be complete without a Beauty Powder. The Maleficent Beauty Powder in Natural is a soft peachy-pink. This would be best suited for those with lighter skin tones as a blush,highlight or all over powder. It is $30.00. I see this being a must have for those that can wear it.
A prep and prime highlighter will give you in pen form will give you a sheer wash if color with radiance. This color's collection is Bright Forecast. It is priced at $25.00.
The Maleficent sculpting powder is a pro powder called sculpt. With the promise of achieving Angelina Jolie cheekbones, I can see why it is sold out. It is also in Maleficent packaging. The price is $23.00.
The last item is the Maleficent nail polish priced at $17.50. It also has the Maleficent design. The nail polish comes in three shades. They are:
Last but not least is
Nocturnelle (true black)
I think this collection is chock full of standards. Some products are not for everyone. This is definitely a pale beauty's dream come true. If you are a collector this is also a must have. The packaging is gorge and different. Consider it a momento and remember how fierce Angelina Jolie looked in the movie. You can purchase these items at MAC stores, Maccosmetics.com as well Macy's, Nordstrom, Bloomie'a and Dillard's.
So what do we think Angels? Are you going to buy anything? Is there something that has caught your eye? Let us know what you think....
Until next time
