MAC x Maleficent Collection
MAC x Maleficent Collection will be available online May 8th and in select MAC stores and Macy’s locations on May 15th. Internationally, it will be available at select MAC stores and Selfridges in June 2014 (excluding China). The quality of the collection is fairly good, but it’s just disappointing to me as a long-time customer, collector, and fan of the brand. It’s nowhere near as exciting or interesting as Maleficent’s Venomous Villains collection. This year’s collection has a lot of repromotes of permanent products, and the few new shades are more dupable than unique. I like the idea of smaller, more edited collections, but if it’s mostly repeats, then it’s less exciting–and Maleficent deserves better than that. Even the packaging is more standard than interesting/different (Alluring Aquatic’s packaging completely overshadows this in terms of uniqueness/originality).
