Have you seen Maleficent? I did! And I love it! I can watch it over and over again. I promise I'll buy the DVD once it comes out.
I know there are people who have been saying the movie's shallow. But how can (true) love be shallow? She was betrayed, almost died from it, became bitter and vengeful for sometime, but in the end her heart softens for the child of the same person who betrayed her. The scenes where she pretends not to care for the child (whom she calls Beastie, LOL!) are just so heartwarming. And ugh, the "true love's kiss" scene is just so surprising! I initially thought it would be the kiss from Diaval (the bird) that will wake up Aurora. (laughs) But nah! Okay, I am giving way too much…see the movie, and you'll know what I mean.
In celebration of the movie, MAC Cosmetics came up with the 17-piece Maleficent makeup collection:
MAC Maleficent Makeup Collection
Usually, UAE is sooo behind when it comes to product launches so imagine my surprise (and excitement) when I got a heads up that this collection is now available.
Take a look at what's included in the collection:
Eyeshadow Quad, AED 246
(Ground Brown, Carbon, Gold Mine, Concrete)
Since I am into neutrals lately, I am so digging this palette. I know the colours in this palette are permanent and that you could actually buy them separately. But I don't care, what makes me salivate over this is the packaging!
Beauty Powder in Natural, AED 149
A beauty powder can be used as a setting powder, a highlighter, a blush or as contouring powder depending on its shade and your actual skin tone. My first beauty powder was True Romantic and I've used it as a blush. I loved it to bits and have been reaching out for it than any of my other blushes.
Sculpt Sculpting Powder, AED 131
Pop those cheekbones ala-Jolie with this sculpting powder! Basing from the swatches I see online, this is the cool-toned version of Harmony, which I use.
Eyebrow pencil in Fling, AED 101
Prep + Prime Highlighter in Bright Forecast, AED 124
A medium-peachy shade that is great for highlighting and give the face that added radiance without making you look like a disco ball. I've been a fan of highlighters for the under eyes but I haven't tried MAC's. Maybe this is the time, then?
Penultimate Eye Liner in Rapid Black, AED 120
I've used this before and didn't like it much because it smudges on my uber-oily lids even with a primer beneath. So yes, I am not excited with this one.
Lipstick in True Love's Kiss, AED 109
Pro Longwear Lipglass in Anthurium, AED 136
Just like the lipstick, I also want this lip glass. It's red, which I don't really go for but the packaging is so gorgeous! Both this and the lipstick are described to be as a bright, clean red which can make your lips stand out.
Pro Long Wear Lip Pencil in Kiss Me Quick, AED 125
Lashes, AED 90
Nail Polish in Nocturnelle, AED 78
Nail Polish in Flaming Rose, AED 78
Nail Polish in Uninvited, AED 78
Some are not too happy with the collection, mainly because most of the products are already permanent and have only gone a facelift with a packaging which isn't too exciting as well. But I don't really mind. I've watched the movie because of Jolie so yes, I still want to get my hands on some of these babies because it has the Maleficent logo on it.
How about you, anything in this collection you have your eyes on? In my case, I would love to have everything in the photo above! #wish
