It’s almost herrrreee!!! Next week, on September 30th, MAC‘s new “Venomous Villains” collection will be available at counters nationwide and through the company’s website. We originally got a sneak peak of the collection and character line-up via WWD back in July, but were forced to wait anxiously to see the full product offering. Well, the wait is over!
The “Venomous Villains” collection is a collaboration with Disney based on four of their notoriously evil characters: Maleficient from “Sleeping Beauty”, Cruella De Vil from “101 Dalmatians,” the Evil Queen from “Snow White,” and Dr. Facilier from “The Princess and the Frog.” I personally would have loved to see their makeup interpretations of Ursula from my favorite “The Little Mermaid,” or even Jafar from “Aladdin,” but no matter—I’ll take what I can get for now.
The products and colors are loosely based on each character’s persona and costume, rather than taken directly from their makeup looks in the films. MAC insisted on creating options that were still very practical and wearable for the everyday woman, with the hint of edge and glam associated with each villain. And hello—what could be more glamorous and bad-ass than a vivid violet lip and iridescent navy nail?! I’m in love . . .
