First look: the MAC Maleficent Collection
Sleeping Beauty is beautiful and kind, but she is literally the most passive, weakest Disney princess in existence. That's why I have always been more fascinated by Maleficent, the villain. She is larger than life and is more central to the story than the heroine herself, with awful powers and the simmering rage to match! I can't wait to watch the movie tomorrow! Finally, Maleficent shall get the screen time and the actress she deserves.
I have a feeling that she'll be a beauty icon in the years to come. Now, if you're digging Angelina Jolie's look then you've got to check out the MAC Maleficent Collection, which will come out in counters tomorrow as well. I have here the MAC Maleficent Eyeshadow Quad and the full details/prices of the collection. Check it out!
This gorgeous quad is as wearable as it is dramatic. It contains four colors that you can use for both day and night - wear them sheer-smoky for a business meeting, or intensify them for a night out in town. They're basic, pigmented, and highly blendable so they should be fun to mix with other colors!
All four shades - Goldmine, Ground Brown, Concrete, and Carbon - are permanent. You can go out and buy them all separately for around P1,000 bucks, so that will set you back P4,000. The quad, however, is only P2,530. That's a great deal if you ask me! These four neutral colors are a great way to start your MAC eyeshadow collection.
If you already have similar neutral MAC eyeshadows though, you won't get as excited. I wish MAC came out with some limited edition eyeshadow colors for serious collectors, but hey, these shades are exactly what Maleficent is wearing in the movie. It's not like MAC can come out with a bright violet just for kicks.
Anyway, check out the rest of the small but well-curated collection here. You'll find the product info + local prices in each image. You're one of the first to see this here in the country. ;) Tell me what you're most excited about!
