I love MAC cosmetics, but I very rarely let myself indulge in buying them considering that they tend to be pricey. But when I found out the other day on The Daily Nail that there was a new MAC/Disney Villains line, I couldn't resist going and taking a peak.
Let's just say that it didn't end well for my pocketbook, but I came out a very happy camper.
This line brings the spotlight to both classic and new Disney Villains. Lets take a peak shall we?
The Evil Queen
The vain Evil Queen from Snow White. Unleashed by Disney in 1937. Jean Harlow eyebrows. Joan Crawford's face. She set the standard for glamorous depravity and made us all glad we don't have a mirror that talks back.
The Evil Queen, or some times referred to as Queen Grimhilde, after the Grimm's fairytale, is the original wicked woman of the Disneyverse. She's also one of my favorites. Cold and calculating, she arranges to have Snow White killed for being more beautiful than herself. When the woodcutter who is suppose to kill her sets her free instead, The Queen takes matters into her own very skilled hands. She turns herself into an ugly old crone and takes Snow White the faithful poisoned apple.
I was really hoping that MAC would do a poison apple red lipstick, but alas they didn't. They did however make a beautiful pink lip gloss that I ended up buying called Hot House.
(it's the one on the right)
Here's the picture that they took to show the colour
Here's it on me
The names for these products are great.
Lips: Toxic Tale, Sinister, Strange Potion and Hot House
Eyes: Vile Violet, Vainglorious and Her Alter Image
Face: Oh So Fair and Bite of an Apple
It's a gorgeous burgundy that has iridescent sparkles in it that change from blue to green, to purple, to pink depending on which way you look at it. I love it and I keep getting compliments on it. Even my four years old niece loved it and asked me to paint her nails with it. I was happy to oblige.
