Just like Maleficent herself, the limited-edition M·A·C Venomous Villains Maleficent Collection is about “a lot of crazy purples, blackened shades and beautiful pearlized nails”. So dark, mysterious and right up my alley!
The Mineralize Eyeshadow Duos ($21) were the first to catch my eye. My Dark Magic is a deep pink with pink pearl paired with dark plum with purple pearl; while She Who Dares is a dark navy with blue pearl paired with deep forest green with lime green pearl. When applied dry, the eyeshadows were very glittery and barely showed up with much color. But once applied with a damp brush, the color became super intense and simply gorgeous. I have always loved MAC Mineralize Eyeshadows and these were definitely some of my favorites.
For the lips, I picked up Violetta Lipstick ($15.50), a gorgeous bright magenta in the Amplified formula from the PRO line. It applied smoothly with great pigmentation. The other lipstick, Dark Deed, was a burgundy plum also in the Amplified formula.
Other products in the collection include:
• Revenge is Sweet – Light yellow purple
• Wrong Spell – Deep plum with pink purple
Beauty Powder ($25)
• Briar Rose – Soft violet pink with pearl
Nail Lacquer ($13)
• Bad Fairy – Red with red multi-changing pearl
• Formidable! – Teal green with pink multi-changing pearl
• Mean & Green – Purple with teal multi-changing pearl
Overall, I am really liking the Maleficent collection and it was my favorite out of the four! See the rest of the collection here!
I’m so sad the Maleficent mineralize e/s are sold out!!! Gragagahadskkdla

Aww I’m sorry Tomi! Do you want me to check my local MAC store for you? E-mail me!
I’m already back in Chicago =)
hi! love your reviews! I was looking for the Urban Decay Naked Palette, and found your blog! Great makeup tips. I’m reading every day now! Do you know where I can find the Urban Decay Naked Palette? I’d definitely pay you for it. 🙂
the lipsticks are really cute! I think the eyeshadows look gorgeous in the pan, but they look a little sheer to me (actually I don’t know how heavily you swatches them, so maybe I’m wrong there).
*woops, I mean swatched
The Maleficent collection is my favourite of the four as well. I picked up all the nail polishes and I am still debated on getting Briar Rose.
i am going there in a week, so i thought we could meet up. T.T;; do u know any good japanese clothing stores there?
The last time I saw the Naked Palette was at my local Ulta store back in August. You might want to call and ask?
The eyeshadows are indeed glittery and sheer when applied dry but the color turns really intense when applied wet. I will post swatches of them wet as well.
Aww maybe next time =) Are you looking for a specific Japanese brand? If you are just looking for Japanese clothing in general, there are lots of Asian-style malls in Causeway Bay, Mongkok and Tsim Sha Tsui that carry them.
Hey Philis, Thanks for the reply! Unfortunately, Ulta, Sephora, Nordy’s, etc are out in Washington!
