I did not like this collection.
So you ask why do I have a haul? well, I bought two items from this collection not because of the packaging, but because they are pretty and I know I will use them a lot. I will immediately depot it! like NOW!
So here's the thing..
I woke up early this morning, as in 9:00 am and went to a near by mall to purchase some new products from MAC. Yes! you guys all know that the MAC Venomous Villain officially launched today- September 30(Thursday). I wasn't able to go the the event earlier(a week ago) because I went to a friend's birthday party.
I went to my MAC store and saw posters of the Disney Villains- Cruella De Vil and Malicent posted on the door. Honestly, I wasn't looking forward to this. The new products were neatly placed in front of the counter, so customers can see them at once(and it can also attract people passing by).
I know there are a lot of people who find the packaging childish and just blah(like me) and I also, know a lot who find it pretty and cute.
I find that the boxes- as in the sketch of the characters outside are prettier than what is inside. I just had a few products on mind and they were- Strange Potion lipglass, Darkly My dear blush, Innocence Beware! lipstick(yes! that exclamation point is included! grrr), Mean and Green nail polish, Fermidable nail polish, and Bite of an Apple Blush.
I know, I know that's a lot, but trust me it isn't because I didn't like majority of those items I listed down and ended up with only 2 items. I technically bought 3 items, but I returned 1 of the 3 right away.
Can I hear a "good job Kim!!" :)
so without further ado, here they are..
MAC Strange Potion lipglass- I just know this lipglass will be a big seller along with Innocence Beware! lipstick.I didn't purchase the lipstick because It is very similar to Hue and Creme D' Nude. Strange Potion lipglass is very similar to Pink Flamingo and Pink Lemonade from their permanent collection. I have both, but I just had to have this one too. Strange potion has more orange tones to it compared to Pink lemonade and Pink Flamingo. It has micro shimmers, but it is very creamy and pigmented.Darkly My Dear Blush- a muted dirty mauvey-pink. This shade reminds me of Penny lane, but more mauve than pink. This shade will look nice on any skin tones. The blush is pigmented enough, so a light hand is needed when you applying this blush
This is the outside box I'm talking about. I wish they put this design on the pot instead of the character's faces.
Formidable! nail polish- So this is the item I returned. I know this is sold out online, but the shade is not for me. The bottle is stunning because of the multi-dimensional pearl(purple, red, blue, pink) and it is shimmery too. I bought this because the bottle looks gorgeous, but when i got home and swatch this nail varnish on my nails it's FLAT, as in you can't see the holographic effects of it. This is a big disappointment. I actually even went outside(under the sun) to see if it will look nicer with natural light, but unfortunately it wasn't and still look flat!
I returned it immediately after I swatched it!
Maybe you will like this polish, so tell me if you did maybe a little persuasion might work for me and I might just repurchase this again! :)
It looks nice in this photo, but in person it's not! :(
So did you guys purchase anything from the new MA collection that everyone was waiting for? Were you excited for it, or not? share your thoughts and opinions to us :)
Have a lovely day guys :)
