MAC Venomous Villains: It’s Here

According to MAC LiveChat (which I did both at 9AM PST and noon PST), Venomous Villains will launch TODAY online at 6PM EST (that’s 3PM PST, 5PM CST) NOW UP :)  The consistency in which this is being said gives me hope that it is true, and I’ll be sure to keep you updated with links as they go live.

  • Edited @ 3:17PM PST — Readers are reporting that they’re being told (via MAC reps, either phone or online): “tomorrow morning,” “tonight,” and “midnight.”   I did a LiveChat myself, and they’re now reporting “sometime tonight” and saying “it’s scheduled to launch online tonight.”
  • Edited @ 3:19PM PST – “The collection was actually scheduled to launch Tues (tomorrow), but we are doing an earlier launch tonight due to the demand. I wish I had a better time frame for you, but at this time we can’t make any promises. I just know it will be tonight.”
  • Edited @ 4:01PM PST — COLLECTION IS UP MY LOVES! <3  Direct links below or else search by product name.
  • Edited @ 12:41PM PST (9/28):  Macy’s has Venomous Villains up! :)  You can search or go to Beauty > MAC > Venomous Villains.
  • Edited @ 4:05AM PST (9/29): Nordstrom’s has Venomous Villains up!  (The link will take you straight to the collection page.)

VENOMOUS VILLAINS HAS LAUNCHED ONLINE!

The landing page hasn’t been created, but below are direct links to each character’s collection for purchase.  Otherwise, you can search by product name, too.

  • Cruella (Innocence, Beware! @ 8:00AM PST; Wicked Ways @ 10:00AM PST are sold out)
  • Evil Queen (Toxic Tale @ 10PM PST; Strange Potion @ 9PM PST; Bite of an Apple @ 9PM PST, Oh So Fair @ 3:00AM PST are all sold out)
  • Dr. Facilier
  • Maleficent (Bad Fairy @ 9PM PST, Briar Rose @ 10AM PST; Revenge is Sweet, Formidable! and both MES  are all sold out)

Tips & Tricks

  • Make sure you have your log-in information/personal profile up-to-date.  Have your payment method handy or else already on-file.
  • Have your list ready in advance, that way you can add everything quickly.  Just because it’s in your cart doesn’t mean it’s yours.
  • Make two orders — order everything you must have or items you think are going to sell out quickest the first time, and then make your second order more leisurely or for items you want to think about for a bit.
  • IT IS JUST MAKEUP.  I know, I get it, part of the fun is the chase, but it is just makeup, so let the chase be fun, not heartbreaking.
  • If something sells out or you’re not able to get to the website right when it launches, the collection will also be available through retailers like Dillard’s, Macy’s, and Nordstrom.  I asked @nordstrom this morning, and they are reporting in-store and online launch for the 30th.

Free shipping codes:  Looks like the free shipping code VILLAINS is active and working, but you can also use CS106LIVECHAT (which any can get by doing a LiveChat).

  22. dani

    I just ordered Strange Potion and Oh So Fair online but when I searched for Bite Of An Apple it showed nothing lol that can’t be good. I guess I have to go to my store on Thursday which I was trying to avoid.

  23. Jennifer S.

    I placed an order, requested second day air and got a confirmation number. So does that mean I got the items in my order or can there still be a chance that things will be missing?

  24. Holly

  33. Kate

    Hooray for everyone else but its still not up in Canada grrr!

  34. Laurie

    If your order is over $50, its automatic free shipping, don’t waste your time adding a free shipping code. Just ordered and received all I really wanted. Now to contemplate those items I wasn’t sure about.

  35. Alright I had all the lip sticks in my pre order except one, and that was Sinister. I had to get it because I didn’t have an even amount LOL.

    Thank you so much Christine for keeping us up to date.

  36. Autumn

    i placed 2 orders online and then pre-ordered one at the store… i have issues

  37. maria

    does anyone know when the collection will launch in the u.s in stores?

  38. Nadine

    Woohoo, I placed my order for one bottle of Bad Fairy! As expected, the MAC website was crawling.

  39. dani

    I ordered off the Canadian website so it is indeed up.

  40. Christina

    So excited! Just ordered my Briar Rose Beauty Powder and Innocence Beware lipstick! I hope they get here quick lol!

  41. Yay!!!! I got everything I wanted! Thanks Christine for the heads up!

  42. Katie

    Woo-hoo! Just got devilishly stylish, resort life, hot house, bad fairy, revenge is sweet, and bite of an apple! Decided to forgo mean & green since I have the Orly dupe. Thanks so much for the links Christine!

  43. Elizabeth

    My loot: “My Dark Magic” E/S Duo, “She Who Dares” E/S Duo, “Violetta” lipstick, “Bad Fairy” Nail Polish, “Formidable” Nail Polish, and “French Quarter” greasepaint stick.

    I’m debating on making a second order of “Hot House” lipglass, and “Wicked Ways” lip glass. Innocence, Beware! which is pretty unfortunately is off my list as it’ll make me look like death. :(

  44. Analy

    MELON pigment is sold out already…
    i wouldn’t have thought IT would’ve sold out so fast…I was betting on BOAA

  45. Amanda

    You don’t have to search anymore. You can just click on what’s new and the character collections will come up. I ordered the two things that I wanted and paid the $5 for 2 day shipping because I leave to move to the UK next Tuesday and didn’t want to chance not getting it before I leave. Hopefully I actually get what I ordered. *keeping my fingers crossed for me and all of you* :) Good luck and happy shopping!

  46. VeroJo

    THANKS FOR THE UPDATES CHRISTINE!!!! LOVE YA! I put my order in and opted for 2nd day shipping. I ordered…Devilishly Stylish, Hot House, My Dark Magic, Vainglorious, De vil, Formidable and Bad Fairy…..so happy = D

  47. Chel

    I feel like a butthead, but I just spent 300 bucks getting everything I had on my list >.< In my defense though, my husband's getting deployed on my birthday and it's gonna take a heck of a lot more than makeup to cheer me up.

    was anyone else's heart pounding as they placed things in their cart? Haha I was like oh noooes it's gonna sell out before I check out!

    • Monica

      I know the feeling! My fiance is deployed at the moment; he deployed the day of our anniversary. :( I needed a pick me up!!! We are both Disney lovers so he will understand when I tell about what I bought. Good luck with the deployment! Be strong…if I can make it so can you!!

    • Keen Janine

      I know what you mean. My husband is in the Navy so I know deployments are no fun, but is a good pick me up :-). Just try to keep yourself busy by taking a class or something. I started volunteering. Good luck! If you need more support from women going through the same thing then check out Cinchouse.com

    • Elizabeth

      I thought the same thing. And then the site got sluggish, and I made a mad dash to the “checkout line”.

      Hehe, I only ended up with 6/9 things I wanted because I wanted to make sure I got my E/S Duos & Nail polishes. XD

      I may go back for the last 3 in a few days, but for now I’m content regardless of what happens that I got my top picks. :)

  48. Lady Alice

    Just placed my order! Yay! And everything that I wanted was there! Sooo happy! It feels kind of weird, There is a Mac store near me so this is where I usually go, but I work all day on Thrusday so maybe a lot of things will be back order by the time I get there, so I ordered online. I really like this collection! Maybe I’ll go to the mac store for some item that were less important for me later on.
    My boyfriend is king of looking at me in a weird way right now… better not to tell him how much money is was! XD
    I hope everyone will get what they want from the collection!

  49. regina

    I was able to pick up Heartless and Violetta l/s, yeah!

  50. FINALLY!! and i got every single thing my tiny heart desired. this was stressful fun, now i can go to sleep LOL!

  51. Merluis

    SOOOO excited!!! Just ordered all my items online yay!!!!

  52. courtney

    that was insane! my roommate started screaming at me to come order! i was making dinner and bolted upstairs! so glad i go what i wanted

  53. Valene

    I successfully ordered everything I wanted from this collection and a few other things, here goes:
    Dr. Facilier:
    Truth and Light magically cool liquid powder
    Creulla de Vil:
    Wicked Ways Lipglass
    Evil Queen:
    Stange Potion Lipglass
    Bite of an Apple blush
    Toxic Tale lipstick
    Maleficent:
    She Who Dares mineralized eyeshadow duo
    My Dark Magic mineralized eyeshadow duo
    Bad Fairy Nail Lacquer
    Mean & Green Nail Lacquer
    And I also ordered Gaga & Cyndi lipglasses, lip erase in pale, and Studio Finish Concealer (NC15). OUCH MY WALLET!

  54. AnGeLwInGz

    I got Revenge Is Sweet and Bad Fairy for now. Amazing how Melon sold out and it’s perm!

  55. ShockingBlue

    I GOT EVERYTHING I WANTED! I was clicking and typing so fast I was shaking.

    I think we are crashing the MAC site though…I’m trying to look at everything and it’s not loading!

    • Chel

      LMAO I was shaking too! My hubby and kid were messin around in the background and distracted me so I accidentally bought 2 beauty powders >.< luckily my mom wanted one.

  56. Danielle

    Just made my haul! Wasn’t initially planning to, but decided that I would regret it later if I didn’t! Thanks for all of the updates! Ordered: French Quarter, Resort Life (hope I won’t regret that), Briar Rose, Hot House, Strange Potion and Mean & Green. yay! Can’t wait to try it all out! My first MAC special edition purchase ever!

  57. Elle

    Wow, that was quick. Got in and out with my 6 “must-haves” and now I’m going to sit back and watch it sell out. This will be, as my friend John says whenever he’s tense about something, a real butt-pucker. ;) Thanks again Christine for being the awesomest!

  58. Maeve

    I ordered both mineralized eyeshadow duos and Revenge is Sweet. Christine, do you know if people have ever had problems with phone orders at Nordstrom’s? I think I remember some (maybe with dare to wear?) and I’m paranoid!

  59. Trey

    Christine you are truly the best! Thanks u so much for the FB links. I’ve been stalking MAC’s website all day…lol

  60. Ashley

    Definitely purchased Bad Fairy and Formidable. :)

    Everywhere I go in Toronto was sold out of ORLY Galazy Girl and Space Cadet and I refuse to pay ridiculous shipping to bring it in so I’ll go for the mac equivalent of Galaxy Girl. I feel vampy. Space cadet can wait.

    Think I’m going to wait to get the rest of my haul in store once the hype has died down a little. I really need to see swatches on MY skin before I can make an oppinion.

    NW10 and I’m eying up Wicked Ways lipglass and Briar Rose.

  61. Jenn

    Oh, thank god I’m using the school’s internet!

  62. Annette

    Yea! I just placed my order. I got everything I really wanted, Wicked Ways lipglass, Strange Potion lipglass, Sinister lipstick, Bite of an Apple blush, Revenge is Sweet lipglass, Briar Rose beauty powder, and Bad Fairy nailpolish. I got it expedited, can’t wait! :)

  63. Kristen

    Why is it saying that the eye shadows are 15.50!?!?! I know UD like to overprice their ridiculous palettes but MAC doesn’t up the price for collections?
    http://www.maccosmetics.com/product/shaded/3884/10190/Venomous-Villains-Small-Eye-Shadow/index.tmpl

    • Because of licensing, MAC has raised the prices for this collection.

      • Kristen

        oooh I Didn’t even think of that!
        Is the WHOLE Mac site down for everyone or is it just me. What if I didn’t want this collection or didn’t even know about it, but I haven’t been able to get anything from there website since 11 this morning. Isn’t that a huge turn off to customers looking to purchase other stuff from them?

      • Elle

        The power of Disney… :) I’m sad they didn’t include Jack Skellington in this collection. I am afraid to admit how much I would spend on that…

        • Tiffany C.

          oh i’m there with you, but Jack wasn’t a villain, it would’ve been Oogey Boogey, LOL. I still would’ve bought it though!!!

  64. Annie

    I’m nw25…wondering how Bite of an apple would look?

  65. Anna

    Woot, got my “Her Own Devices” Beauty Powder, and I’m good. So glad I’m not in love with anything else in this collection, otherwise I’d be going crazy now, the site is so slow. :P

  66. Jezi

    Swiftly got Bad Fairy, Hot House, Strange Potion, and Briar Rose BP.

  67. Autumn

    Just placed my order :) I had to do searches to find the products at 7pm- I picked up the Bite of an Apple blush and MES in ‘My Dark magic’ =)

  68. Divinna

    I just got my VV order and I have officially fallen in love all over again, Maleficent shadows, love it

  69. Pkb

    Well… it’s now 8ish pm and I managed to get Heartless l/s and Bad Fairy n/p. Wasn’t planning on buying anything, but I finally looked at your swatches/reviews, so thank you for reposting all the links to the coverage you’d already posted, Christine! Made a couple last-minute purchases possible!!

  70. Eileen

    Thanks so much Christine! I got everything I wanted. ;D ;D ;D

  71. Lauren

    placed my order. Man the site is slow!! Got hothouse lipgloss, Bad fairy nail polish, and she who dare eye duo. that’s all I really wanted from the collection… :)

  72. chanel

    $231 bucks oh my!! i got everything i wanted hopefully they do have it!

  73. JH

    The collection looks really cute.. but I feel like none of the colors really stand out to me. But I’ll be enjoying the collection from the sideline!

  74. Dana

    Just placed my order – I just got the 2 things I definitely wanted: Strange Potion Lipglass and French Quarter Greasepaint stick. :)

    Everything else I need to see in person, I am not too concerned though, my Mac still had Stereo Rose the Friday following the launch lol

  75. Yvette J.

    just placed my order and paid..now, I’m so over this collection…thanks for the heads up..Ms. Christine

    • hanna

      lol its funny how we get so hyped up and act like a crazy person when the collection comes out and then after we buy what we want, there’s this moment of peace and happiness :)

  76. Jadis4742

    I just ordered my mini-haul off the website! Bad Fairy, Strange Potion, and Devilishly Stylish. I really only meant to get Bad Fairy and the Briar Rose powder originally, but when I went to the unveiling last week they were sold out of Bad Fairy, so I picked up the Revenge Is Sweet lipglass to console myself in case I never got my hands on Bad Fairy. But the prints on the lipglasses are too awesome to resist…now I have one of each, plus my original must-haves! I’m excited. I normally never get the LE stuff I want, and this is only my third MAC purchase overall.

    I hope everyone got what they needed tonight!

  77. Kalex

    Good gravy! I was sitting at my computer waiting for VV to be at 5pm CST and everyone was saying Live Chat said not until tomorrow. So I go out to dinner with my family and I come back and it’s up! I’d have been so bummed if the stuff I wanted was sold out.
    I got – Bad Fairy polish, Strange Potion lg, Sinister ls, Truth and Light powder, and French Quarter Greasepaint.

  78. Anna

    Hey Christine, just wanted to say thanks X 100000 for all your help and all the information you put on this site! Seriously MAC needs to just pay you a portion of their sales or something, because I’m pretty sure without all your swatches and updates for when the stuff comes online and answering various questions… the stuff wouldn’t sell half as fast!

    I pre-ordered and then ended up ordering online to save myself a trip back to the mall. Hopefully I get the confirmation shipped email in the next 2 days so I can cancel my preorder and let some other girl get her Wicked Ways, Strange Potion, Oh so Fair, and Bite of an apple. =)

    Again, THANKS DEAR. =D

  79. Nicole

    Gah! I would love to order it online, but seeing as how I’m a broke college student I really can’t be using my visa unless I need to. So I’ll be skipping Chem on Thursday morning. :) I’m from a fairly small city in Canada…and I have a hard time imagining anything selling out crazy fast here…but you never know.

  80. Ji

    woo hoo! just ordered wrong spell and violetta! I really am having trouble deciding if I want both the mineralize eyeshadows in the maleficient collection or just one.

    anyone know how my dark magic looks on dark skin vs. she who dares? (medium dark skin. not deep dark skin) anyone knows which one would show up more?

    • Ji

      went back and bought she who dares online this morning! I guess I’ll wait til I get home so I can see if I still want my dark magic and also hot house. Maybe even the purple pigment in the facilier collection. Goodness gracious I’m spending so much money!

  81. tg

    Even though I don’t have a card, the Pro store in NYC let me place an order last Friday, and they had everything in stock, so I went ahead and paid shipping and got it from them.

    Now I’m wondering if I would have been OK waiting for it and just getting it from the website. I was thinking it would be another ordeal, but nothing is sold out yet. Seems a little calmer than the Stereo Rose debacle…

  82. Milly/ jgmilly97

    Hi!! Christine :) and everyone!! Guess what Mac venomous villains is already online…as of right now.. Get it while it last!!!

  83. Vicky

    Omg I just ordered online strange potion lipglass and the bite of an apple blush and I can’t wait to get them!! Hey Christine do you think the blush will look good on an Nw35?

  84. As soon as I got the “VENOMOUS VILLAINS. Glamour will be yours!” email…I stopped everything and ordered all the things that I really wanted. =) Yeah!!

  85. Joanne-Marie

    Is it out on the canadian site too?

  86. Catherine

    I just ordered all the things i wanted! Can’t wait to receive it (and can’t wait till next pay day!)

  87. chanel

    So im debating, i got the darkly my dear blush. i was contemplating the cajun cooling powder but i feel like they are very similar.. are they?

  88. Jennifer

    I ordered just now.

    I ordered 43.00 more than I had planned…No wait maybe 62.00 more than planned haha

    I got :
    TWO Toxic Tale lipsticks (Because I love pink-coral-bright = love)
    Heartless lipstick, Wicked Ways l/g, Hothouse l/g, The purple/pink mineralized e/s, Bite of an apple blush, Formidable! Nail Laquer…

    I bought “Violetta” l/s last week in regular packaging off the reg. mac site. I didn’t want to spend an extra dollar on packaging, since I probably won’t wear it a lot, but it looked so lovely and I was just excited to see this pro product brought over to reg mac site.

    I think that’s everything. Phew! I think that’s everything.

  89. Daphne

    I’ve never ordered off the website before, but thought I’d try it to miss the MAC store mania – I braved it for the Hello Kitty launch and will never do it again. Some of those women I know have done time.

    But I ordered the Maleficent line and am super psyched for it to show up at my front door!

  90. Michelle

    Thanks Christine! I know Nordstrom is taking pre-sale orders but have been so busy haven’t gotten a chance to stop by there and pre-oder the items I had to leave behind at the preview party. Ordered them online instead since won’t have time to get there early enough to deal with the crowds and sell outs. I didn’t notice the code for the free shipping but I got it anyway since I ordered the Viva Glam lipglosses – money going for a great cause – so it worked out in the end. I just won’t be able to use them until they arrive which isn’t a problem for me.

  91. Amanda

    On my e-mail from Mac confirming my order under Bad Fairy it says “Cannot ship to APO/FPO address.” What does that mean?

    • There are a lot of restrictions about nail polish going overseas/out of the country (APO/FPO are military addresses, correct?) – so that’s probably it.

      • Amanda

        I’m so frustrated…. Got an e-mail from Mac today for both of my orders saying they couldn’t process it because my billing address wasn’t correct for that card… but it’s the same address as on my bill statements…. :/

        • Amanda

          Does this mean I won’t get the items I ordered that are sold out now… such as Bad Fairy, etc?

          • Amanda

            According to the amount the billed my credit card I’m not getting my entire order… even though I ordered it and it was in stock at the time of my order…

            If my math skills are any good it works out exactly to be they took off Bite of an apple. :( I’m really angry right now.

          • Depends on when you ordered – MAC will let you know soon if you didn’t!

            • Amanda

              I ordered right after the launch. However, something is definitely missing from my order according to the amount they have billed my card. However, I have heard nothing back from them.

            • You can call and ask, or you can check your order list and see if any item has something different listed next to it.

            • Amanda

              Just checked my order list. All items have a tracking number next to them except for Bite of an Apple. Any idea if that means it may ship later and them bill me later for it? Thanks for all the help Christine!

            • They usually do backorders first, and they try to find additional pieces to fulfill them. They don’t always get to all, BUT with Stereo Rose, I know a lot of people got their backorders — including myself.

            • Brynn

              Are you in Canada?
              MAC doesn’t always let you know something from your order is sold out. I ordered my To The Beach stuff, and when my order came, the invoice explained half of my order couldn’t be shipped. I was so disappointed because I wasn’t expecting it. :(

  92. Yay… got the few things I wanted. Things aren’t selling out as quickly as I thought they would.

    I got an e-mail from MAC this afternoon that the collection was available. Luckily, I checked my e-mail about 20 mins. after they sent it to me. I pre-payed for a bunch of stuff at my Macy’s, but decided I wanted a couple of other things. I ordered the Truth & Light powder and the French Quarter Greasepaint Stick. I’ve never owned one and French Quarter looks so pretty that I decided it was a good time to try one. I’m still thinking about getting Cajun Magically Cool Liquid Powder. I didn’t expect to love those powders so much when I tried them at the store, and the peach undertones are just so perfect for my skin tone. I considered getting Bad Fairy, but decided $13 is more than I want to spend on a nail polish I probably won’t use that often. If Maleficent were on the bottle, I might’ve been persuaded to get it. I do love the name :). I wonder what will sell out first?

    Hey Christine,!
    I’m in a graphic design course, and we were just assigned to do an annual report booklet for any company we want. I plan to do “MAC.” I have to of course come up with a creative concept story to display the info in the booklet…(If you have any ideas for a concept I’m all ears…) . Anyhow I was wondering if you had high quality resolution or good resolution face charts and any other promotional flyers for collections from this year or last year? And anything else interesting. I was thinking of maybe working the Viva Glam Aids angle, but I am just thinking now…I have to have four angles by this Wednesday.
    So anything I’d be grateful.
    Thank You
    Jennifer
    You can email me anything you have or link the pics. I don’t want you to go to a lot of trouble, but omg I was just so excited thinking about making a boring annual for MAC make up… I’m an addict for MAC, and it is carrying over into my work! ha!

    I honestly thought things would be selling out by now…

    Hmmm, 6:40 PST, just placed my order and nothing that I wanted was sold out yet! Frankly i’m surprised because I got things that i thought would be pretty popular. I guess that’s thanks to you Christine! Big thanks for being on top of everything (even if my wallet is smoking a bit…) :)

    The offical description of Wicked Ways lipglass is fuschia with pink pearl. It looks more red to me in your swatches–you describe it as cherry red. I”m kind of torn on whether it will work for me. I have fair skin with a tendency towards flushed cheeks. Do you consider it more on the red or fuschia side? Thanks for all the information. I was so excited to get my order in. I am a big make up fan as well as a huge Disney fan–gotta love it when the two combine!!
