MAC Venomous Villains Event & Haul!

I don’t know about you, but I have been waiting for MAC’s Venomous Villains collection for a good few months now, so when I heard that MAC were having a Villains Blogger event, I jumped at the chance to go.

It was MAC’s first Blogger event so I count myself very lucky and I’m so grateful that I received an invite to go.  I met some amazing beauty bloggers that I’ve admired and looked up too for a long time, and it was quite surreal to be in a room with so many familiar faces off the internet!

The event took place in MACs High Street Kensington store and we were first shown how to create the look of Cruella DeVil by one of MAC’s senior artists who was fabulous and created this stunning look in just under half an hour.  We sipped on raspberry cocktails and nibbled on macaroons and cupcakes whilst watching this stunning look transform and develop.  I will definitely be attempting this look at home (along with the quiff!).

We were then let loose in the store to play with the new collection and other products to our hearts content.  The new collection features four Disney Villains; The Evil Queen, Maleficent, Cruella De Vil and Dr.Facilier.

I wanted to try the purple Maleficent mineralized eyeshadow in My Dark Magic and one of the lovely makeup artists gave me a makeover using it.  She painted my eye lids with Blackground Paintpot and then put the mineralized eyeshadow on top to create this smokey, vamp look on me.  I love it!  Although I did get a few odd looks on the train home, ha!  She used the new Pro Longwear Lipcreme in Overtime on my lips – a gorgeous creamy pink which glides on like silk and doesn’t budge!

I already had a wish list of what I wanted from the collection when I went to the event after lurking Temptalia’s swatches and reviews of the range – found Here, and I managed to purchase exactly what I was after!

SO, do you want to know what I picked up out of the collection?

Evil Queen Bite of an Apple Blush

blush1 

Gorgeous coral pink blush. Very pigmented but I adore it and can’t wait to wear it out this winter to brighten the cold days!

Maleficent My Dark Magic Mineralized eyeshadow

shadow1

Stunning in the pan, sadly not as pigmented as it looks.  Goes on quite gritty and sheer but to get the best application, use it wet or over a dark paintpot as seen in the makeover pics above!  So pretty though, I love it.  And I love Maleficent.

Evil Queen Toxic Tale Lipstick

lipstick1

This was the product I was most looking forward to and I adore it.  A red coral which instantly brightens my face.  Love the packaging, love the colour, love love!

Evil Queen Strange Potion Lipglass

lipgloss1

Another biggie on my wishlist!  Peachy lipgloss.  Its very pigmented and glides on the lips like velvet.  I’m hoping this will last me a long time because it’s so pigmented I won’t need to use much!

Dr.Facilier Cajun Magically Cool Liquid Powder

powder

I kindly got given this as a freebie in my goodie bag and I’m pretty impressed with it!  You will never believe this until you try it out yourself, but it turns into liquid when you touch it… I really can’t explain it, its crazy.  It literally melts onto your fingers which feels crazy but looks gorgeous.  If you pick up the tiniest bit it remains as a powder and sparkles in the light.  The liquid feeling dries as its blended into the skin.  So glad I got this, I can’t wait to play around with it as a bronzer, highlighter and eyeshadow!

There we go!!  I had a fantastic night, I’d do it all over again if I had to!  The Venomous Villains Limited Edition range goes on sale online on Monday, and in stores on Thursday!  Be fast to get everything you want as I have a feeling everything will sell out very quickly!

Do you like the look of the collection?  What do you think of the packaging?  What will you be getting!?

Thanks MAC for a great evening! xo

  13. the eyeshadow looks lush on you!
    very nice lip colours too.
    Wish the design on the cardboard packaging was on the actual products instead of the sticker looking things!

  14. Soooo beautiful! I bought Toxic Tale and Bite of An Apple the first day they went on store! (well actually I bought them first, because in Milan there was a preview on the 14th of september! aaahahah lucky me). I love both of them and Toxic Tale is extremely gorgeous as a color (even if it is really close to n.52 of YSL Rouge Pur) but sometimes it really dries my lips, did this happen to you too? :(


    Love your blog!! :) I'll Follow You! ^.^
