MAC's Venomous Villains Collection

MAC always does an amazing job of producing collections that consumers go crazy for. The latest edition - Venomous Villains, inspired by Disney's creepiest characters.

The four villains that are represented in this line are Cruella De Vil, Maleficent, the Evil Queen, and Doctor Facilier (from the "Princess and the Frog"). For me, the Evil Queen is the epitome of scary. As Snow White's evil stepmother, she's pretty frightening. That being said, Maleficent, is my fav of the four lines.

This collection was released less than a week ago, on September 30, just in time for Halloween, and already being gobbled up quickly, like the Hello Kitty collection from awhile back. That line was sold out before I could snag anything but a lip gloss and it seems this collection is no different. A majority of the online items are gone. The nail lacquers were at the top of my list and two shades are sold out. My fav, Formidable!, and Bad Fairy are no longer available but you can still purchase Mean & Green, pictured below.

"Toxic Tale" lipstick, "Mean & Green" nail lacquer, "Wicked Ways" Lip Glass

"Bite of an apple" beauty powder, "Push the edge" pigment

If you are unfamiliar with the blog, Temptalia, you have to check out her review of Venomous Villains. She is amazing with makeup! And that is an understatement. Click here for an overview of the eye shadows and here for the Maleficent collection overall. Here's a little sneak peek:

I really hope MAC replaces the items that have already sold out. C'mon it's been a mere six days! Either they didn't produce enough items, or people are that crazy about the line. I'm thinking a bit of both.

Does anybody know much about their special collections? Would they restock these items at all? Or are they completely gone (from the online store) already?

one of my friends was JUST telling me about this two days ago. she busted over there to get a couple things because she heard they were selling out like crazy!! i've never tried any of the special collections, but seeing as there's such a frenzy it makes me wonder if i'm missing out?

I have never really tried MAC... I know, crazy huh? I think it's because I am afraid to get a pushy salesperson and I tend to go to Sephora where I can browse and sample uninterrupted. I think I might be missing out a great product line though! xo

That sucks you didn;t get what you wanted. :( Seems you really wanted those.
As far as I know sometimes they re stock in the store, but I haven't seen/heard of them restock online.

You can check nordstroms or macy's but hurry. The nail laquers, lipsticks and blushes are DEFINITLY the ones which will go first all over the world where MAC is sold (from my observations).

I honestly would just like to get the lipstick or lipgloss just for the packaging haha :)

I love all the fun makeup collections that start coming out this time of year. MAC always has awesome holiday sets. I need to go check this one out.


Melanie's Randomness said...

Ooooh I need some new MAC gloss!


kay said...

I Love, Love, Love this line! Just bought the "Bite of an Apple" I was just thinking today "What am I going to do when I run out of this"?haha

Mel said...

This line is great! I think usually when the sell out, it's gone, but a friend told me she's found some "new in box" items that MAC no longer carries on Ebay.

I love Temptalia’s blog and I was waiting eagerly for the MAC Venomous Villains collection to debut. I got my hands on too many things. My favorites are the Bad Fairy nail polish and Innocence, Beware lipstick.

If MAC restocks on limited edition items, it’s rare. I had placed my order Monday before the collection even truly released and 3 items were backordered that they eventually had to cancel. Luckily I was able to track it down in the store.

oooh I'm so in love with the collection!

Ahh... I didn't know about the Villian Collection at MAC. I love their collections... so fun. i stocked up on the Hello Kitty collection. I don't know if they restock the collections. They should bring back the popular collections from time to time.
