MAC Venomous Villains Recap

Friday, September 24, 2010

If you're a MAC or Disney fan, I'm sure you are eagerly waiting for  MAC Venomous Villains Collection's official launch on September 30th.  This is a great collaboration between Disney and MAC to create a wickedly cool collection.  I truly applaud both companies for creating such a wearable set of colors that appeal to both neutral and bold makeup lovers. However, I really wish we didn't have to pay an extra $1 for every single item due to Disney packaging.

Swatches from each set can be found here:
Evil Queen


Since I was able to attend the unveiling party, I got a chance to preview/purchase the products a bit earlier.  From the numerous MAC Collections I've covered, I'd have to say this is probably the most versatile collection to date.  The colors are not particularly unique but as a whole, they offer the most universally flattering shades for all skin tones.

What came home with me:

Villains We Love to Hate: MAC Venomous Villains Collection Teaser


In celebration of MAC's Disney Collaboration with MAC for the Venomous Villains Collection, I went on a mini scavenger hunt during our vacation to find the 4 featured villains.  I had tons of fun searching for these characters with the help of my dear, wonderful husband, who went to every single gift store with me.  It was pretty amazing how incredibly difficult it was to find villains around Disneyworld. 

Here's what we were able to find....

Essie Fall 2010 Swatches and Review

Wednesday, September 8, 2010

It's incredible how quickly Summer has passed and now Fall's right around the corner.  Despite the gloomy and windy weather, Fall is still my all time favorite season.  This year, Essie's Fall 2010 nailed it on the head with a mixture of khaki, rose, mulberry, and deep purple varnishes.  I instantly fell in love with this gorgeous collection the minute I saw it. These are now available on  Essie's website, each retailing at $8USD.



















Out of the 6 colors, I picked up the 4 lighter shades.


Let's jump to the swatches and review!
