MAC cosmetics’ line of Disney inspired makeup is really a gigantic hit with consumers. If you happen to look online at any of the 4 collections, you will notice that a great deal of the products are already sold out. I have gone to several different malls over the past 2 weeks and have found the majority of items that were sold out online to be still available. If you really want to buy from the various selections, than you still might have time to pick up the item you covet.
Each collection is inspired by a villain from some of the most famous Disney movies of all time.
For the purpose of this article, I am going to be doing a brief overview of the “Evil Queen” collection. The Evil Queen is the villain of the very much loved “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”.
I am sure that most of us have seen this film at least once and if you were a girl who loved Snow White, than you have probably seen it several times over the years.
This collection is really pretty and the packaging is also really nice in this one.
I have heard a lot of people complaining about the appearance of the villains on the packaging, but for some reason, I really like the Evil Queen’s look on most of her inspired products.
There are several items to choose from.
The lipsticks retail for $15.50 and come in 2 shades. “Toxic Tale” is a brighter fuchsia red color while “Sinister” looks to be a deeper color with tones of plum and brown. I assume that most women would like the brighter red one as “Sinister” does look a little too deep. Of course fall is here and this deeper hue might appeal to some.
Lipglass is MAC’s version of lip gloss. These sell for $15.50 and come in 2 different.
“Strange Potion” is a pink cream blush color with hints of coral. This color is my personal favorite of the two offered, but many who like the lipstick in “Sinister” might find the lipglass “Hot House” to work better for them. Hot House is a really pretty purple orchid color. Even though I would wear these alone, they might work well with the lipsticks offered in this collection. The picture of the Evil Queen on the lipglass tubes is much better than the lipstick and is actually some of the nicer pictures on any of the Villain collections.
The least thrilling item in the Evil Queen products is the “brow marker” which retails for $16.50. this is your basic brow filler and comes in a medium brown tone.
The eye shadows are nice, but not something that I would really venture out to buy alone. The eye shadows retail for $15.50 and are not the ones to put in palettes. These come in their own small individual compacts. There are 3 colors to choose from: “Her Alter Image” is a very pale lavender white, “Vile Violet” which is a murky purple, and “Vainglorious” which in my opinion is the best shade in a pinkish purple hue.
The powder blush sells for $19.50 and is in a really true red color that might scare most buyers, but excite others. “Bite of an Apple” is one of those colors that will work well on some skin tones, but others might find it too brash and bright for their liking.
I like the packaging on the beauty powder the most out of everything. “Oh So Fair” is a nice pale pink shade that will add just a hint of color to your cheeks or wherever else you might choose to add a bit of brightness. This retails for $25 and has the Evil Queen looking straight forward and dangling an apple. This packaging seems to be better suited for the blush, but most of us who do not like such a bright color will enjoy it on the fairer beauty powder.
All of the products are limited edition and come in shiny black compacts or lipstick tubes instead of the classic MAC matte black.
