MAC Venomous Villains Haul 2: Briar Rose and Oh So Fair Beauty Powders, Dark Deed Lipstick

Photobucket
Hi everyone! I have gotten hold of these products from the MAC Venomous Villains collection that I have been contemplating purchasing before. This review will be about beauty powders in Briar Rose and Oh So Fair, and Dark Deed lipstick. I will also be comparing Dark Deed lipstick to Kittenish from the Fabulous Felines collection! I'm loving all these products so far!

Out of all the products in this collection, MAC Oh So Fair beauty powder's packaging is what I love the most. The image of the Evil Queen is well-proportioned on the compact and she is so gorgeous too. This is unlike Maleficent's image on the Briar Rose beauty powder compact that is just so unflattering on her (even though she's just a cartoon!) and her face is freakishly tiny. I wish the image was just a front and face-view of her instead, similar to the Evil Queen's.

Talking about the actual products, the beauty powders are gorgeous. Like many other bloggers have said, they actually give a nice 'glow' to your cheeks, not in a glittery disco-ball way. Compared to previous beauty powder releases, the ones in the Venomous Villains collection are pretty pigmented, and can be used as a blush for lighter skin tones. I picked up Briar Rose and Oh So Fair.

Briar Rose is from the Maleficent sub-collection in this release, and it is a lavender baby pink. Some people have said it is similar to Well-Dressed blush from the permanent line, but I don't have that so I couldn't compare the two. I love pinks like these; they give an innocent flush to my cheeks! ♥

Oh So Fair beauty powder is a more yellow-toned pink, which has a faint golden sheen. It is considerably less pigmented than Briar Rose, but it still shows up on my skin-tone.

Here are swatches:

I have also been lemming Dark Deed lipstick, which is a dark plum-burgundy colour. It is an amplified finish that is very opaque and glossy looking. Comparing Dark Deed to Kittenish, Kittenish is definitely more brown and is a bit less pigmented considering it is a cremesheen finish. Both are gorgeous though and perfect for this winter season!

I wear Kittenish with Mahogany lip pencil, so that is why I have swatched both here. Can you recommend a lip liner (preferably MAC) for Dark Deed lipstick? ♥


I hope this review and the swatches were helpful. Did you pick any of these up? What do you think? xx

  4. Glad you snatched up Briar Rose, Dark Deed and Oh So Fair! The lip liner that I can recommend for Dark Deed is either Beet l/l or Plum l/l.

  5. "Briar Rose" is such a pretty shade - not too soft, not too harsh.

    The lipsticks are a bit too heavy, but they go well with the theme.
