MAC Venomous Villains Haul, Swatches and Comparisons ~ ! ♥
Hi everyone! As promised, here is my haul from the MAC Venomous Villains collection, along with my quick reviews and some comparison swatches. Be warned, this is a long and picture-heavy post! Enjoy~ !
I wanted to get 1 lipstick from each villain, so I got Toxic Tale, Heartless and Violetta.
When I swatched, Toxic Tale is just one shade lighter than Coral Polyp, but they are very similar.
Apart from Dark Deed, I didn't pick up Sinister and Innocence, Beware! lipsticks. Sinister is a sheer brownish-red which just looked blah to me. Innocence, Beware! is a milky baby pink, which isn't terribly unique and accentuates every flaw on your lips. It would probably look alright under a lipglass, but I like my products to look good on their own.
I also got Bite of an Apple blush from the Evil Queen's collection. It is a matte reddish-pink blush. It is quite pigmented, so I suggest applying this with a skunk brush such as the MAC 188 especially if you're fairer skinned.
Bite of an Apple compared to other blushes:
I love my MAC Greasepaint sticks; I use them everyday. They are smooth to apply, and once put on, they dry and last until the end of the day. I tend to have slightly greasy lids as the day goes by, but these stay put and don't smudge at all. I love them a lot, and so I wanted to pick up the new shade that came with this collection, French Quarter. French Quarter is a slightly greenish grey colour. I thought it might be similar to Dirty greasepaint stick from a previous release, so I compared the two:
French Quarter is definitely darker than Dirty, which is definitely more taupe. In real life, it also appears more green.
I also got a few gifts to take home from the event. I was given the Magically Cool Liquid Powder in Truth & Light, and Zoom Fast Black Lash mascara.
Well I hope you enjoyed my haul guys, and I hope this review was helpful.
What is your one must-have product from this collection?? ♥
