You are all probably a bit sick of hearing about the Mac Venemous Villains collection by now, so I’m sorry for yet another post.
I wanted a few bits, but not heaps from this collection but when it came down to it lack of funds dictated my purchases so I ended up with just two items from the collection. I also bought my first paint pot as I wanted to try using it as an eyeshadow base.
So, I purchased A Bite of an Apple blush, Bad Fairy Nail polish and Soft Ochre paint pot. My first thoughts are that I’m really disappointed with the blush. It’s a nice colour but it’s not as pigmented as I’d hoped for and I was hoping for far less pink and considerably more red/orange.
I also picked up Bad Fairy polish. All three of the polishes from the collection look gorgeous but I’m told the other two polishes are exact dupes of two of the Orly Cosmic FX polishes but Bad Fairy isn’t a dupe so I had to get it.
Lastly I grabbed Soft Ochre paint pot, having quickly swatched it, it is almost invisible on my skin, this is fine as I bought it to use as a base for eyeshadows. I’m going to have to be careful not to mix it up with my Studio Sculpt concealer which is in and identical pot and a very similar colour!
I decided yesterday that actually I wanted one of the Mineral Eyeshadows and Toxic Tale lipstick, but I was too late, they’ve sold out. It’s my own fault but I’m disappointed. If anyone has either of those items and wants to sell or swap please let me know!
I also feel compelled to show you the official Mac imagery for Bite of an Apple Blush. You tell me, does it bear any resemblance at all to what I actually got? No I don’t think it does. I feel tempted to complain actually.
So did you buy anything from the Venemous Villains collection? Does it live up to your expectations? Did you get there too late and it had sold out? I will bring swatches and nails of the day soon.
