Mac Venemous Villains Collection

Hi all!

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.

Mac Venemous Villains Collection

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.

Mac Bite of an AppleI 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.

    I didn’t want anything from this collection because I hate the packaging. The polishes did look nice but overpriced and nothing unique…

    oh that colour on the website is very misleading! :O I was planning to get some stuff online but wont be doing so now. You should complain you know. Cherry culture representating misleading shades can be forgiven but MAC?

    I too was utterly disappointed by Bite of An Apple. Not only is the colour misleading the texture and quality of the blush is terrible! Does yours feel chalky and cheap? I compared to all my other MAC blushes and this feels so totally different and very cheap.
    I was tempted to complain too – I know so many people feel let down by this collection.

    I like the nail polish but I am not buying stuff with Disney characters all over it. Not going to happen.

    I wouldn’t be too disappointed about missing out on the mineral eyeshadows. I swatched both and my MUA used the purple one on me and whilst they’re nice, they’re pretty much just a black base with a shed ton of glitter. There are similar colours out there that are much nicer to be honest.

    The official photo of Bite of an Apple is completely different to what you received, I would also be unhappy. Seriously I think I’d complain MAC is def a brand you expect quality product from x

    Hmmmm…on the MAC picture it looks far far redder. The redness in the MAC picture is precisely why I didn’t buy it actually, as I thought it would far to red for me. Ahhh well…I guess you win some you lose some! Looking forward to seeing how the polish fars up on your gorgeous nails! 🙂

    I managed to get a few items online, when I received the parcel it was missing Toxic Tale Lipstick and Strange Potion Lipglass (probably the two I really wanted) even though the despatch note states they are supposed to be there. Have to wait till Monday to complain to Senior MAC staff. Would have thought more of such a respected brand.

    Thank you everyone for the comments.

    Jaki – what a pain – I hope Mac sort it out for you!

    Mrs Wedgie – typical – on me it’s not reddy at all but its the red I really wanted!

    Lila – I did complain actually. I just let them have my thoughts rather than demanding a refund or anything though.

    Kelly – thanks – do you have any recommendations?

    Jaljen, I don’t like the packaging but it doesn’t bother me either thankfully.

    WelshBeauty blog – yes its definitely not the quality of my other Mac blushes – not great is it?!

    Shifa – glad its not just me – awful, I have emailed Mac but am not expecting a reply!

    Lucy, I the think the nail varnish I grabbed is pretty unique but the others – definitely not xx
