MAC Venomous Villains

MAC Venomous Villains Collection for Disney

U.S. Launch Date: September 30th, 2010 (online as early as 9/27)
International Launch Date: October 2010

A potion to poison, an apple to bite, a spell to cast… Bad never looked so good. A crystal ball of colour created from our favourite Disney Venomous Villains, inspired by the three most infamously frosty, fabulous and formidable of Disney’s dark ladies… and one dastardly Dr. Facilier. Don’t you love it?

A MAC and Disney collaboration to celebrate the dark side in every one of us, in a glamorous sort of way. Who’s the fairest one of all? Four separate mini-collections, in haute animated couture. The incomparable Cruella De Vil and Snow White’s Evil Queen are dazzlingly devilish; Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent and The Princess and the Frog’s DR. FACILIER, both up to no good on their own. Uniquely designed iconic packaging you will kill for, cunning characters and bedeviled beauties that are so alluring, you can’t help but wonder what it would be like to be one!

I saw sneak peak pics of this collection and I gotta say, OMG crazy boring! I love the names of all the products but seriously they gotta do something better with the packaging. It almost makes me mad because its even worse than the Hello Kitty collection from last year… I wish they could’ve done something more interesting like how they worked with Liberty of London rather than just stuck the carton pics of the villains on their usual black packaging. Sigh.

I posted up some pictures on my blog that I found on someone’s Tumblr. Thank goodness I saw this in advance or else I would have been majorly disappointed when it finally releases.

Yeah I will also be deppoting this it look horriable and tacky.I am really disaponted with M.A.C…..If they were going to be make this collection they should have went with a second collection for hello kitty because that was a good collection

I like them a lot! Maybe it’s because I’m young and I still watch some Disney movies but honestly who cares about packaging! It’s like the saying ” Don’t judge a book by it’s cover!” and that’s what your doing! I also think MAC are trying to do something simple because of the Rodarte issues.

i deff agree with you ,,who cares about the packaching ive been buying mac products since i was like 15 and i have many of their collections and i just love the concept of the colors and the name that reside pure evil ..im soo amped to get this !!

It’s apparently all about what Disney gives them, since they own any images of the characters, MAC can only use what Disney gives them to use. The companies MAC works with on a collection seem to have a lot of power over it. So it was probably Disney that chose Dr Facilier. No surprise there, since they have been pushing that movie like crazy. And it was Disney that gave the crappy images for the packaging.

Paul and Joe released a collection with Disney characters (Bambi, I believe, and more recently, Alice in Wonderland) and they managed to spice the packaging up with some additional stock images (lace, flowers, etc) and the end result was very pretty.

I think MAC took the easy way out on this, using only the Disney images on a black background and not adding any creative input of their own.

tl;dr- it’s not all Disney. MAC could’ve done something to make this packaging look less tacky.

I have to agree. The packaging really turns me off. Instead of looking fun, it looks childish, like “play” make up. Too bad MAC! It doesn’t appeal to me.

Well all i can say is at least they didnt put massive glitters in the black packaging this time, like they did with the hello kitty collection.

you have to admit, the green & blue mineral eye (she who dares) is pretty outstanding, and the nail polish, as well as the red cruella lipglass with fuschia pearlized pigments! and toxic tale (coral lip from the evil queen) is much like a hybrid of vegas volt and show orchid with the texture of an amplified. it’s worth seeing in person 🙂

I never get excited over collection information bc I can never fully visualise. The nail lacquers might be interesting. The packaging will play a major role in my may-or-may-not-splurge…

the packaging is black with images of the characters on it, just like they look in the movie, not the sketchy ones that were released promotionally.

Christine I absolutely love your page. I am so excited for this collection! I know that whenever I want the latest info about any collection I can count on you. Keep up the good work!!!!!!!!!!!!

The blush and Beauty Powders look good…lets see..I hope the packaging is better, unline that crapy FAFI one wth just stickers…paper stickers to be precise…

I want to see the packaging , but the lipglasses and some of the eyeshadows sound interesting …they are on the want list. This is not gonna a be a wallet friendly collection

Ok, I won’t lie. I get excited, especially when it’s (a) a fall release (all my fave stuff tends to come out in the fall) and (b) based on villains. HOWEVER, I’m going to go with the crowd and wait for pics before getting excited. 🙂

I’m obsessed with anything Disney and of course I love MAC, so I know I have to buy at least a few products from this collection! I’m planning on getting all of the lipsticks, beauty powders and the mirror.

I’ve seen a picture of the packaging and I quite like it, I don’t don’t think we’ve got the whole list yet, Since I think they may put out more than one lipgelee.
I love the fact we’ve got MES and regular eyeshadows, and Amplified creames are my favorite lipsticks!

Honestly, I can’t wait for these! I think more than anything, I’ll be snatching up the lipglasses, a couple of lipsticks, and maybe Bite of an Apple blush.

not impressed at all with the color selection… what’s up with the beauty powder and the blush?!? beauty powders and blushes are my fave thing from MAC and this kind of sucks.

I’ll probably get a few things from this but it doesn’t sound like it’s going to bankrupt me like I was anticipating. Thank god!

Thank you for posting the list with prices. I hope these are actually what it costs I read on Specktra that they would be more but it wasn’t an official post or anything. I have to agree I saw the packaging and it is pretty anticlimactic after all the hype. Yay you screen printed the characters on each thing.. no special design, no artsy scribbles like the intro. It kind of looks cheap really. Oh well the colors sound amazing and I am so happy you posted this. Thank you!!

I know MAC does two price increases (they do some products in the first half of the year, others in the back half), but I have no idea. I just posted prices based on current/recent pricing.

Yep I figured that is what you did. I think the hike is coming in July. I guess we will have to wait and see. Thanks for going to all the trouble to price it, it makes things easy and keeps it in perspective for me.

Hmm.. not much I want but I really like the Villains haha 🙂
Maybe when it offically releases and I hear more
reviews, I’ll want it more XD ‘Innocence, Beware!’ is something
I’m looking forward to though!

From the description of colors of the Mineral Eyeshadow duos, they seem to be my kind of shades, pink/purple and dark blue/ green, but gotta see the photos and the real things first!

Sadly I’m not feeling the collection now. Maybe if anything I’d be interested in Briar Rose, but I guess we’ll wait to see the images.

I’m excited to see the red lipstick from the Cruella de Vil part of the collection. Villains always have such delicious red lipsticks.

I talked to someone about the liquid powders. Apparently they are a loose powder that, once put on the skin kind of melts and liquifies, then sets up like a powder again. It might be more of a “on bare skin” kind of thing – Like the cream bronzers that came out with “To The Beach.” Interesting anyway…

On a side note: None of the people I talked to who went to Update and saw this collection knew who the hell Dr. Facilier was. LOL! And everyone said the same thing over and over, “Where’s Ursula?!”

You would think that since Ursula was based on an eyeshadow-afficionado-drag-queen (Divine) she would have been a go-to character for makeup licensing.

I was so disappointed in the maleficent items, she’s my favorite villain.
Rekon they should have done some sort of metalic packaging liek they did with the Diana Ross collection waaayyy back. I’m so going to go work at MAC and work on better packaging. the people doing it at the moment need to be fired, they’re doing such a crap job. all they have to do it slap some Disney images on there regular black packaing, maybe chuck a gloss on it. soooo disappointed! they probably wont do this collection again and they wasted it, with boring, cheap looking packaging.

ok well that’s my rant, but seriously MAC get it together – this packaging is doing nothing for the name of your brand.

still gunna buy a couple of things just coz the colours look nice.

You’re right. Packaging plays a MAJOR role in how much I spend or DONT spend. I have every color, what would make me buy more stuff if the packaging. Stickers, meh…I would pass before I even see them. Like Dame Edna, I purchase ONE powder in spirit but could have spent waaay more.

I hope MACs marketing/design teams floats on these sites and if design is not already locked down, considers tweaking the design and doing something more fabulous. Yeah, names are great but w/o design no point.

I am excited for this collection however the packaging is just ok in my opinion. There is just something from the pictures that makes is look very cheap and child like. It looks like kiddie makeup. I would rather then do a different color container for some of these collections then the characters on them. I’m still excited about the collection though but since there is special packaging I guess its safe to assume there is no pro discount which will suck.

Hi Christine…Resort Life was from Mac in Lillyland collection i believe…not what’s written. Just wanted to give a heads up. Thanks for the info!

If MAC is doing special packaging and making me pay full price (pro card holder) then it better be something to wow my socks off!! Hey MAC if you are seeing this, step up your game one this one right here.

is anyone else surprised to see a disney villians collection without a single green eyeshadow? i was hoping for at least one fun lipstick (green or blue) but assumed that there would be a couple green eyeshadows…

i was honestly thinking eyeshadow trios (like with dame edna, etc.) would have been in this – fun compacts with groovy packaging. i’m sure the package designs will be special, i just expected to see more le style packaging (would have been even better to see new products)!

unrelated to the theme of this collection, i’m excited to see push the edge out again – i’m down to less than a teaspoon of it! lol! (i think the descriptions are mixed up for push the edge and brash and bold tho)

ok i know we won’t know anything until we see what this looks like, and christine – thanks for taking the time to post this!!

but you know what? i’m actually kind of irritated at this collection! with a collection based on disney villians, i shouldn’t be scanning the descriptions HUNTING for something that sounds interesting! i should be panicking and thinking, “how can i afford all this?!” pretty sad mac… pretty sad.

maybe i can just blame it on the LAME choice to use dr. facilier instead of a memorable villian (ursula would have been one of my top choices). whoever was in charge of that decision should be locked up in the disney vault.

if i was going to pick a lesser-known villain i would have gone for ezma instead of dr. facilier (but i LOVE eartha kitt and she SO needs a mac collection – i don’t care if she isn’t around anymore!) hehe! but i agree! i hate that i actually know these things (or think this way) but ursula was putting ON makeup in the movie! (lo!) she should have been one of these villains!

just off the top of my head… a few of the things i would have liked to have seen:

1) a trio of eyeshadows for each character (in a le compact)
2) two lipsticks for each with some GOOD colors (a couple cool re-promotes like that blue from c-shock or “grid” or “blade” from WAY back when would even be cool!)

i honestly like the idea of keeping the collections similar for each character – with maybe ONE something special for each… like 2 new WILD eyelashes for cruella, some kind of awesome compact for the evil queen from snow white, a deep dark fragrance in a cool vial (like poison) for EZMA!!! lol! you get the idea.

with one shot and this and a really cool concept to work with, i would have gone WAY over the top (but that’s why i don’t work for mac… my ideas would never sell to a large group. lol!)

Dusty, Mac totally needs to hire you to help design their collections. You have awesome ideas. I would totally buy the collection you listed.

how can you not use ursula- this was a dumb decision. Can you imagine the colors that could have been used for ursula – that would have been hot

I completely agree about the Ursula thing, I would of thought she would of been one of the first villains they decided to use. I remember one of my favorite parts of The little mermaid was when ursula squishes that little animal thing and uses it as a lipstick. lol. I don’t know why I loved that part so much, but I did.

On the other hand, I kind of expected this, though. Most Disney villains share very similar color palettes, so I was wondering how they were going to make it interesting, and… well, it seems like they haven’t, LOL.

I agree about the green shadow, though! Black, purple, and green are the three basic villain colors, hahaha, how did they cut that one out?!

Hopefully, the swatches will prove us wrong…

Thanks for posting, Christine! Can’t wait to actually see the colors, though. [crosses fingers?]

So..this is slightly random, but you, Erica (which is my name too) commented and then you, Paige (my sister’s name) commented to Erica…i just thought it was funny.
Anyway, back to MAC – – you are totally right! i need at least one thing from each character…plus more haha. but i’ll even buy something from this Dr. fellow who i’ve never heard of haha.

Based on some of the descriptions: Ack, must start saving!

After seeing some photos: They could have done so much more with the packaging. A little disappointed.

Final verdict: Won’t be spending as much as I thought.

I’m sorry, but I absolutely hate the packaging! It looks cheap and tacky and highly unoriginal. I would’ve loved to see the sketched versions of the characters in black if they were going to stick with the black-colored packaging; this just looks like something I’d find in a kids’ makeup play set.

On that note, until I see the pictures, the only things that really catch my eye by description are the nail lacquers. I can’t wait to see those, actually!

Exactly! They needed to make it more adult instead it looks like a childrens playset complete with the plastc mirror and plastic lipstick. I will only be purchasing the nail lacquers and maybe a beauty powder.. That’s it!

Ugh. I too saw the pictures for this packaging. IT SUCKS. its tacky and boring. I was expecting something edgier like the teaser they had. cheap and tacky looking. YUCK

I think black packaging and the sketches from the teaser would have looked way cooler than these stickers. I am still excited for this collection because the colors sound cool.

I am most interested in the nail lacquered in the Maleficent collection and the liquid powders from Dr Facilier collection. I wonder what liquid powders are.

I think the packaging looks kinda cute, but kinda kid-like. The colors don’t sound very interesting other than the nail lacquers.

I feel like the could have chosen better characters ! Who is DR. FACILIER ? I guessed cruella and the evil queen but was also expecting ugly step sisters, queen of hearts, captain hook and ursula ? still saving for it though !!! The polishes sound to die for!!

Dr. Facilier is the villain from Disney’s latest box office hit titled Princess and the Frog which featured a black girl as the main character. I am happy they included a newer villain to the other classics. Diversity from a makeup collection is always good!

Well, I’ve got my list together. The stuff that isn’t on the list, I definitely plan to check out in person:

Lipglass-
Devilishly Stylish

Eyeshadow –
Vile Violet

Mineralize Eyeshadow-
My Dark Magic – Pink/Plum
She Who Dares – Navy/Forest Green

Pigments –
Brash and Bold
Push the Edge

Magically cool liquid powder –
Truth and Light (I don’t know about this one.. depends what it feels like)

The nail lacquers also sound really interesting, but I don’t do my fingernails at all..

The only part of this collection that makes me a bit excited is the ‘Heartless’ Lipstick, perhaps that’ll be a nice true red…
I have the hardest time finding a nice true red lipstick that lasts. I have blonde hair, light brown eyes and a yellowy tinge to my skin :/
It seems like most true reds are make for lighter people :/

I just googled the leaked pics of this, i really really hope they are wrong it looks rubbish 🙁 like they just took a picture of a villan and smacked it on the front of the case, imagine using it people would think its for kids! I mean ill still get some if the ltd edition colours/products are too my taste and some sound interesting

What a shame though this could have been so much more I wonder if these pics are right would MAC finalise packaging months before release?

I’m excited about this collection, but the packaging is very important to me. I’m going to start saving now, but I really hope MAC delivers with the packaging especially because it’s a Disney collection (it should be special). Can’t wait to see the pictures!

If this is bona fide, I’ll be dissapointed. The packaging looks cheap and tacky and many of the colours sound boring. I was expecting so much more.

This is my pre list. 🙂

CRUELLA DE VIL
Innocence, Beware! Lipstick
Wicked Ways Lipglass
De-vil Eyeshadow
Sweet Joy Eyeshadow
Her Own Devices Beauty Powder

EVIL QUEEN
Strange Potion Lipglass
Her Alter Image Eyeshadow
Vainglorious Eyeshadow
Vile Violet Eyeshadow
Oh So Fair Beauty Powder
Bite of an Apple Blush

MALEFICENT
Revenge is Sweet Lipglass
My Dark Magic Mineralize Eyeshadow
She Who Dares Mineralize Eyeshadow
Briar Rose Beauty Powder

DR. FACILIER
Truth and Light Magically Cool Liquid Powder

Oooh, I was interested in the concept but was sure all the shades would be too dark for me. I’m not a fan of purples and black shades in my makeup, so I’m glad there are some corals, pinks, and coppers in there.

From the pictures from the site that someone posted are pretty cool. I know this isn’t the best of MAC but don’t MAC usually put up awesome packaging around February/March like HK, Heatherette, Liberty London.. So for a collection that’s around september, I would say it’s pretty good. I would buy it. 🙂

the only thing that sounds appealing to me is:
Her Alter Image & Vile Violet eyeshadows (purples….go figure..)and
Formidable! & Mean & Green Purple nailpolishes

Boring or whatever I’m still buying a lot from this collection. The collection packaging alone is worth a lot in the Disney Collectors World. I collect Maleficent pins as well as Evil Queen pins so I’m going to be in MAC heaven when this collection comes out. I also go to Disney World every year and we’re going for Halloween 2010 and I’ll be sure to get pictures with all of my villains when I get there. I love the collection from what I see in the sneak preview pictures. Yeah!

I can pick out several items that I’m interested in! (especially that Cherry lipstick… I’m predicting the next Marine Life right there). But then again, I’m very new to makeup, so while the collection might not inspire long time collecting veterans, I see this as an opportunity to pick up some great basic colors with nifty packaging : )

I was disappointed that Mac chose not to use a more classic character like Ursula, whom I would have loved to see. I highly doubt these pictures are the final packaging. Although, packaging doesn’t influence whether I buy or not. Guess I have to start the saving from now!

My list is
Innocence, Beware! Lipstick
Heartless Lipstick
Devilishly Stylish Lipglass
Toxic Tale Lipstick
Strange Potion Lipglass
Her Alter Image Eyeshadow
Vainglorious Eyeshadow
Vile Violet Eyeshadow
Oh So Fair Beauty Powder
Bite of an Apple Blush
Violetta Lipstick
Revenge is Sweet Lipglass
Wrong Spell Lipglass
My Dark Magic Mineralize Eyeshadow
She Who Dares Mineralize Eyeshadow
Briar Rose Beauty Powder
Bad Fairy Nail Lacquer
Formidable! Nail Lacquer
Mean & Green Nail Lacquer
Resort Life Lip Gelee
Melon Pigment
Truth and Light Magically Cool Liquid Powder
Cajun Magically Cool Liquid Powder

…yikes

I beg to differ about the packaging pics. I saw them and I kind of like them. The shiney black cases with the villian on the top. I actually was dying to buy a palette but they didn’t make any so, I’ll just wait til it comes out!

I’m guessing it’s either a silicone type liquid, that dries to a powdery finish. OR, it’s a powder that’s very very soft, with a cooling feeling, that feels like liquid on the skin.

This is not right …. I was really hoping to see some cool eye palettes. I am very disappointed with the packaging and am secretly hoping that these sneak pics are fake.

I’m so excited! 🙂 If this is a hit, I hope it inspires them to another Disney collection. I just feel like many great characters were left out. Personally I don’t think DR. Facilier should have been included, but I understand that Princess and the Frog is their latest movie and this is another way for them to promote it (I don’t think the sales for the movie were very good, I mean it still made plenty of money but I think they expected a larger profit)

The movie did very well- the merchandise did even better, with dolls selling out way in advance of the movie’s release. I think that Ursula would have been Perfect for this collection, but for what ever reason, they chose not to add her in. Dr. Facilier was a voodoo doctor fro the movie and A LOT of color was used for his character and things that involved he. He is the lastest vilian and it is smart to promote the latest to the collection.

I agree with you about Dr. Facilier, but I WISH they had added Ursula too. You even see her putting makeup on in the movie. 🙂

I have my eye on De-vil, Sweet Joy, Her Alter Image, Vainglorius, Vile Violet, Oh So Fair, Briar Rose, the mirror, and the nail lacquers!
But what exactly is a Magically Cool Liquid Powder?

How disappointing! I can’t believe there are no deep red lipsticks. And Dr. Facilier was not a memorable villain, I have no idea why he’s even included in this collection.

Ursula, however – the Disney villain seemingly most commonly clamored for, at least on the beauty blogs I frequent – is from “The Little Mermaid” which came out in 1989. I would imagine that she is often requested because MAC fans who are somewhere between their twenties and thirties, and perhaps even those in their forties, commonly associate Disney villainy with her, because she was one of the first one they saw, or at least one of the first female ones. (Consider that “Sleeping Beauty” was released in ’59, “101 Dalmatians” in ’61, and “Snow White” in ’37 – although they’re obviously classics and not at all foreign to anyone, they may not be as visceral and nostalgic an association as that of Ursula in “The Little Mermaid”. I don’t know; that’s just a guess.)

And, if you think about it, it seems probable that it is the early-twenties to mid-or-late thirties range that is the main demographic for MAC cosmetics, as that age range is both likely to have some disposable money, and may be likely to spend that money on make-up in bold colors. Judging from all the “But who is Dr. Facilier?” comments, it also seems that they may not watch the new Disney movies all that much, anymore. It would perhaps make more sense for MAC, from a business perspective, to focus their collection partially on a character that is certain to engender a certain sense of nostalgia in a large section of their main demographic.

But, at the same time, sure! If what they are doing is trying to draw in younger, or new, consumers, then certainly Dr. Facilier is a good enough choice. I suspect Disney itself has a large hand in it, too, trying to push their new franchise.

I know he’s new and being young myself, I still think he’s a bootleg Jafar. Mac apparently wanted to include a male villain but they should have chosen someone classic. His part of the collection is not impressive either, what with all the repromotes.

There are a few things soung great like the nail polish sounds awesome… but I think a good chunk of this stuff is attracting me because of the name, and if you read just the description i could probably do without… well let see when it comes out how it looks 🙂

Nothing really impresses me. I think I’m gonna save my money for this summers “dare to wear” there are so many lipglosses that I want from it

I went to my MAC counter today and asked the lady and she said that it would be like a powder for a “dewy” face look, and that the powder feels like liquid.

i dont know if anyone knows about the prescriptives powder that when you brush it on it feels wet? it might be like that. its called the magic liquid powder. my friend has it, and it was mind blowing at first to brush it on and think ‘wait is the brush wet” lol

The Magically Cool Liquid Powder is a feather light silky powder. Its a water power hybrid and its moisturizing. 65% water. Its better used as a highlighter. If you have any other questions on collections you can visit my blog.

i cant wait 4 the pix! i only get certain things from certain mac collections so im hoping this one is amazing there are a few that sound sooo amazing cant wait

I’m so disappointed… 🙁 My wallet is happy though. Dr. Facilier? Really? I LOVED him in the movie, and Disney villains are my favorite, but I guess I was hoping for some more “classics”. Oh, and Hades…. come on! He runs the underworld!!!!!!!! Sigh. Oh well.

Damn them I’m going to have to get Briar Rose because of the name and I want to check out the magically cool liquid powder because I have no idea what that means, other than that I think I can live without most of it.

This collection has become the biggest letdown for me… I have been looking forward to it for so long and its just boring and cheap… not pleased at all…

I breathed a sigh of relief when I saw the list of products. I was scared for having TWO HUGE collection one month after another.
I’m glad it’s not a terribly huge collection because I really wanted to spend on the Fabulous Felines Collection more. Please say this is the final list of products for the collection!

Based on the descriptions, the colours don’t sound too original. I’m really in for colour and quality than packaging!
I’m interested in:

Heartless Lipstick (OMG love reds 🙂
Her Alter Image e/s
Vile Violet e/s
Dark Deed lipstick (interesting, dark is good but hopefully not dark enough it’d be black on lips!)

wow sounds really cool! i hope there is limited edition packaging then im so getting a powder for the packaging! and just to let you know brash and bold pigment is the pink one and push the edge is a purple color, you just switched them up

Pffttt, I kinda laughed when I saw him on the packaging, interesting, he didn’t seem like the type to be found on lipstick, oh well. But, the Doc isn’t too happy about being stuck on a lipstick tube himself, of being FOUND on it more like it. Not that he told me or anything because I mean that would be crazy right? Naw, more like I think if he could say anything about it he wouldn’t like it…you know you can ignore this one right?

Oh man I think I’m gonna have to skip out of IMATS, and only get the BOS III from UD and then no more makeup buying cause if the colors are as awesome as they sound I want so much of this! Plus Disney Villians are awesome! I wish they’d done Ursula though or Scar, there are some awesome villians.

i was soo excited for this collection. still am, but the few pics i’ve seen of the packaging is definitely a let down. it looks like just the villain’s pictures on the top of the compacts. but i’m still saving for a few things haha

Was prepared to buy a lot of stuff from this collection but I got a little deflated after reading this, maybe because there are no accompanying pictures. When I saw the packaging, got all the more disappointed. It looks cheap. Oh well, I’m just hoping that seeing the items in person would change my mind.

Oh doggone it! I need the Dark Deed lipstick, Heartless lipstick, Vile Violet eyeshadow & the Bite of an Apple blush so far. MAC!!!!!!!!!

OMG….I am sick with excitement!! I’ve waited soooo long for MAC to release Violetta Pro Lipstick in one of their collections, and now I FINALLY get the chance to snatch up this gem! THANK YOU MAC!!!!

I’m excited about this collection and I’m not excited all at the same time. Those nail polishes sound pretty interesting though.

thanks christine for the information !

i’m struggling with this … the colors are not so interesting, but i love the names. i don’t really like the packaging but i’m still anxious for it to come out. i’m waiting for you pictures to come up, maybe that’ll change my mind. i really wished the pictures were perhaps the sketches of it. it would have made it seem less kiddy. but i can see why they put the versions they have up. it really emphasis and compliments the colors of the characters.

Well, I saw the packaging that’s supposed to be for this collection, and I have to say that it’s a turn-off:/ O well good for me lol, hopefully I won’t blow my budget;)My list so far is:

Magically Cool Liquid Powder in Truth and Light
Magically Cool Liquid Powder in Cajun

…But i’m sure it’ll cut down and change a lot once I see the actual products, Once again–Thanks Christine:)

I don’t know why everyone is saying the packaging stinks. I think it’s awesome & creative. I’m not one that just buys stuff for the packaging anyhow. I think that is pretty lame to be honest. I do like only a few items from this collection, thank goodness. I honestly thought it would be a much larger collection with more lipsticks to chose from. I can’t wait to see the actual promotional pictures & find out what Christine recommends.

I have never actually gotten the chance to buy anything from a big mac collection. i only started getting into makeuo recently and i am soo looking forward to this. if anyone can post a link to where they saw the packaging i would reall appreciate it. thank you 🙂

my list:
lipglass-
wicked ways
strange potion
revenge is sweet
wrong spell
eyeshadow –
de-vil
her alter image
vile violet
my dark magic
she who dares
blush-
bite of an apple
etc-
magically cool liquid powder in cajun
im so vain mirror

Oh, I found two pictures online and I didn’t care for the packaging much either. I guess I’ll have to see it in person before I decide either way. I didn’t know if it was kosher or not to include a link to another blog, Christina, but I saved the two images that I found to my photobucket so that I could post them without stepping on any toes. Hope that doesn’t step on any toes either. If so, just delete them. I love your website Christina. I check it everyday to see what’s new. 🙂 Here are the two links to the pics I found of the Venomous Villains collection. http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n106/FloridaNat1ve/MAC%20Venomous%20Villains/promo.jpg

The descriptions sounded great but I looked up some pics and they look kind of boring. I was going to save up for this but I don’t know if this is skip worthy and I should spend on the dare to wear collection… Hmmm…

i am hoping that that isnt really the packaging. its just like stickers!!?? but you know maybe those were fakes idk. we can’t know for sure until they start promoting it

when can you get pics of these items? im sure you can have mac give you more info or pics! tell them your readers demand to see more! love your site, but there is already pics out there ! you should have the first pics because your site is the best !!!!!

I’ve also seen sneak peeks. The colors that I DID see look nice but the packaging is such a downer. I wish it was more whimsical, but hey, I guess MAC got lazy or something.

I’m so happy that they have one of my old faithful villains Maleficent and Dr.Faciller (is my new favorite;). All the products sound nice. I can’t wait to see swatches so that I can be sure of what I want; but so far I want…

Cruella de Vil:

Heartless lipstick
Devilishly Stylish lipglass
De-vil eyeshadow
Darkly My Dear blush

Evil Queen:

Maleficent:

Dr. Facilier:

Push the Edge pigment
I’m so Vain Mirror
Cajun magically cool liquid powder (although don’t quite know what it is 😉

I hope you get to post swatches before this collection goes online cause this one is defiantly going to go quick!!!

Why is everything a dollar more for this collection than what it usually is? Ex) E/s, usually 14.50, and then up there it says 15.50. And the Lipstick and lipglasses are usually 14 and it says 15?

How crazy 🙂 Im from the UK and visiting Florida in September for 2 weeks. I hope they release it when I am there, as we are visiting Disney a few times. And obviously the Florida Mall for Forever 21, MAC and Sephora! Any recommendations on what to look out for?

Why is writing lipstick in place of lipglass in the collection of Cruella De Vil?

*sorry for my bad english i speak french

I’m really excited about this collection! Revenge is Sweet lipglass sounds amazing!!

Does anyone remember the Truth & Light lipglass that’s been discontinued? Do you think it has any correlation to the Magically Cool Liquid Powder of the same name? Just curious!

looks like cheap packaging…sad for Disney 🙁
but i guess in a way its okay b/c then
you can focus on the product rather than omg its cute

Are you serious???
wow. disappointed. Like most of you guys, I was hoping there’d be some unique sketches.

I could do better with my own disney stickers.. e.g. snow white on my frosty and highlighter shades, and one of those villains on my darker, mystic shades.

I can save my money now

The packaging looks tacky but I understand that they can’t really change the Disney characters much. Where was Dr. Facilier from anyway?? haha I’m still looking forward to the beauty powders though!

I am very excited that most of these lipsticks are Amplified, my favorite kind! I’m also excited about the navy/green shadow duo, as well as the De-vil and Sinister shadows! Overall the colors seem very fall, deep rich hues with a lot of pop for the lips. I was hoping for a very cool sketch-like interpretation of the Disney characters on the packaging instead of just a plain sticker… But I will definitely splurge, the colors are what you see at the end right?

I’m really, really disappointed in this packaging. It looks like something I had when I was 7. I expected way more out of the artists at Disney, not to mention MAC…I LOVE disney, this should be a little gothic (villans) maybe Anna Sui esq? some of the colors sound good, I’ll wait until you swatch some and see what to pick up! Definitely not going crazy like I did for ‘To The Beach’

I normally love MAC’s LE collections, but the packaging looks a little too childish to me…bring back Liberty of London-esque packaging! Kind or reminds me of the play makeup I had as a kid haha

Wow. The packaging is a complete letdown. I was really excited for the design of this collection, too. 🙁

Well, I hope the products themselves are good … But my excitement for this collection has gone down considerably. I guess this is good news for my wallet.

Can’t say leave it for sure until I see the shades, but I agree with the general sentiment that the packaging is a huge disappointment. I suppose I was picturing something similar to Anna Sui’s packaging, but with a disney influence. These look like something that would be sold in the Disney Store.

um…did a few of the products go up a dollar? O__o;;

Hmm i’m actually excited for this collections despite what the packaging looks like. I got really excited because of the names for everything lol

hey christine, i noticed that the prices changed on some of the products do you know when the prices will change on the MAC website or stores?

I want a lot of stuff from this collection, packaging is actually number 2 for me, but based on the description of these products, I’m sold.

Super tacky packaging. After the very cool teaser video, what a disappointment to see such childish packaging! This collection has gone from a must-buy to a “the products will have to be amazing and unique before I will buy.”

Black packaging with a boring portrait of each character? HOW BORING. The packaging should atleast have a unique color background that remind us of the characters. Look-wise, I’m not digging it; they look like them cheapo cosmetic stuff from Claire’s for little girls.

I cant wait to see this collection I hope they don’t take to long putting out the pictures for It. I like the idea of villains.

im not really excited. I mean really .. what can mac possibly come out with that i either don’t have or hasn’t been done before and instead glamorize it’s image by repackage the products that are either “similiar” or is a permanent. This is an easy pass with a lot of “yawning” in between.

The descriptions and the idea of teaming up with disney are so nice and tempting! But the packaging sadly turns out to looks like fake makeup i played with when i was a kid

The nail lacquers sound interesting – can’t wait to see them. Other than that, there’s only really Bite of an Apple and possible the Evil Queen’s purple eyeshadows that interest me. Really not keen on the packaging though – looks like kids’ makeup from the market.

ahhh…i must say…the packaging really turns me off on this one, i think i will skip this…they look more like toy(and a cheap one,too) than makeup!

Not excited about the packaging, but I probably will get Violetta l/s, because I want it, but don’t have a PRO store near me. And the over the phone shipping costs are prohibitive!

Interesting. I don’t mind the packaging too much because it’s not really important to me. I prefer good colors and finishes to be honest. I would have preferred the sketch type designs, but… I’m still interested in buying a few of these items.

I think i am the only one but a really like the packaging because it’s represent the real image of the villains that scares me when I was a child so for me the packaging represents the memories of my childhood and i like this feeling :).So that why i like the packaging.

It’s either just for this launch, because of the tie-in with Disney, or prices went up – still not sure.

They probably went up knowing MAC. Their prices have been steadily going up. I am dissapointed because MAC is raising their prices because they know people are addicted to these collections being released, not because their quality is increasing.

Im really surprised that this is getting so many negative comments! I am totally loving these! I would get them just for the pictures on the compacts themselves, too cute!I cannot wait to see all of it!

The packaging looks like stickers and the prices increased…. Do u know if these prices are just for this collection or are these new MAC prices?

I love pretty packaging as much as the next girl, but when push comes to shove, it’s all about the product. I see a lot of cool stuff in this collection and I’m very excited about it!

OMG. This has to be the worst packaging ever. I was really expecting MAC to make it so much more classier. The annoying thing is that there are a lot of products from the collection that I like but they will all look ugly in the casing. I think, for the 1st time ever, I’ll have to depot everything. 🙁

I agree with whomever said it is up to Disney to allow the use of their characters. There is probably only so much MAC can do in this case. The packaging isn’t too terrible, not what I had hoped, but whatever. That should not be anyone’s first reason for buying a good product or color. Saying that I would love to see a picture of heartless lipstick. That is the only thing really calling my name at the moment.

I wish they did Hades from Hercules, “Woah, did my hair go out?”. He’s the funniest villain ever! But I guess it wouldn’t go hahaha.

Oh well, I’ll pry get this stuff ‘cuz I’m a disney freak. Annual passes, woot!

Blah on the packaging. Why oh why did they chose dr. facilier??? I guess I’m old school Disney aka the 80s and early 90s Disney so I don’t even know who that is. He doesn’t seem to fit with the group even! Rather disappointing.

Ugh!!!!!! Why MAC? Why would you ruin such an amazing collection idea?!?? I am so upset with the garbage packaging and lack of any real new items. I can slap Disney stickers on my own products for about $1, same images too

Ugh! So disappointed 🙁

Personally, I feel that the disconnect comes mainly from the fact that you have three very striking female villains from classics released no later than the early sixties – and then one guy, from a movie released in 2009. I could be wrong – I haven’t seen the movie myself and am not familiar with the character – but it would seem that, as a character, he is not as much a part of, I guess, our collective culture, which means that you get the “Whaaa, who with the what is Dr. Facilier?” comments going on, on essentially all cosmetics forums I visit. You look at Cruella, and there’s the black and white hair, the plume of smoke. You look at the Evil Queen and you have very defined, arched brow and the inky lashes in contrast with the pallor, the almost femme-fatale brand of red lip. With Maleficent, you get that signature pale green with some spectacular purple shade – if I remember correctly, she’s even rocking red nail polish! Again, of course this is because I haven’t seen the movie, but you say “Dr. Facilier” and I get no mental image at all. While that is a selfish way of putting it, I think the same holds true for many MAC customers at this point – simply put, the movie has not been out long enough for it to be a culturally relevant point of reference.

Plus, there are so many female villains whom I would like to have seen! For instance, couldn’t you get some striking lavenders and pinks out of Madame Mim? Although I am glad that the poor “Alice in Wonderland” franchise isn’t being milked any further than Tim Burton has already seen to, the Queen of Hearts is certainly an interesting villain with an interesting brand of style: everything white must be red! The exclusion of Ursula seems to be the point of contention for many, and I can only agree. I can’t help but be a little bit disappointed in the focus of this collection – at least in part.

(Plus, I’m just saying, where are the funky lip colors? I know villains have made red lips kind of their trademark, but you know what’s awesome over red lips? Ice blue gloss! Poison green gloss! Straight-up wicked purple! If any time’s the time to be playing around with funky colors, surely it is the Venomous Villains collection? Not to mention, the eyes. A red eyeliner, a pure red shadow? I’d go for that! I’m getting so annoyed with every other collection being all pink and coral and peach and copper and maybemaybe navy and red if you’re lucky. Come now, this isn’t the Precious Princesses collection! It’s not that you can’t have the wearable colors, too, but with such a large collection, stirring the pot a little by adding some wild cards really wouldn’t hurt. The more I write about this – I’m sorry; this is an essay of a comment, and if you don’t want to approve it, I understand completely – the more disappointed I get. It’s the focus in part, and it’s the packaging and the art, but it’s also the general choices when it comes to shades. Haha – distressing, isn’t it, when something you’ve looked forward to quite a bit turns out to be quite the bummer instead?)

i know what you mean about the characters. i totally disagree w/ dr. falicifer. && i would have been so excited to see ursula! 🙂

i gotta say i totally agree. when i saw the male in this collection- i was like who is that? who is dr. falicer? ive never even seen the movie. they could have done alot better and actually put another female disney character that we know of-queen of hearts, ursula!!!!

I agree with you; even as someone younger, I don’t care for Dr. Facilier much. I can understand wanting to throw in a male villain, but even in that they had options- Jafar, Hades, and a whole litany of other male villains. Granted, a lot of them, like one of my favorite, Shan-Yu, aren’t too well known and loved. But that applies to Dr. Facilier as well, not too many people adore him. They kind of disrespected the classic villains a lot of hold dear.
And I’m also dissapointed with the colors. Everything seems very… Tame. It’s pretty depressing.

So, I know that this packaging is pretty disappointing for the usually very artistic MAC designers, but we have to remember that MAC may not really be to blame for this. I am sure that Disney had a very controlling hand in the development of the packaging as well as a very tight rein on which characters were picked. Disney has always been very protective of their trademark rights and I can’t imagine they just let MAC have carte blanche for making this collection.

Personally, I am excited for this collection, regardless of the packaging.

I think I have to buy the whole thing. I passed on Hello Kitty and Barbie but I love Disney Villians! The one thing I don’t think is a winner is Dr. Facillier. I know everyone is saying they should have used Ursula but even Captain Hook would have been better than Dr. Facillier.

The products sound cool but the packaging is sooo cheap looking… I was expecting more creative/asthetically pleasing packaging!

I can see why they’d release a villains collection right before Halloween…makes sense.
But what kind of sophisticated woman wants makeup with such ugly, gaudy packaging? I thought To the Beach packaging was fun but still classy, while this is just plain hideous.
