The highly anticipated Maleficent collection is almost here! I feels like I’ve been waiting for this Disney movie inspired collection for a year… or maybe I’m just really impatient. Either way… IT’S ALMOST HERE!
As any character inspired cosmetic collection, the excitement in the air. Unfortunately, this seems like a hit and miss. I was a little disappointed by the shade selections for this collection. Maleficent is probably the most evil, if not THEE most sinister (yet fabulous) “villain” in the Disney series. We all remember her famous two horned head dress, white-green skin, lids full of purple eyeshadow and the amazing fire breathing dragon that she turns into at the climax of “Sleeping Beauty” So… where is the lime green, where is the scaly dragon purple…huh? Where are the deeply evil (yet fabulous) colors that come to mind when you think of Maleficent… Unfortunately, this collection does not reflect the Maleficent that we know and adore. Maybe, the movie will tell a different story.
The other thing that I was quite disappointed is that the eyeshadow palette is made up of four permanent shades. No new eyeshadows here. And Carbon again? Is there a collection that MAC doesn’t throw Carbon into? I need to know who was at this meeting… Honestly, without seeing the movie yet, this collection seems to be a reflection of Sleeping Beauty and her ruby red lips than of Maleficent herself.
Nevertheless, it is still a great looking collection. It will be released on May 15th and I’m pretty sure that it will sell out fast. I definitely have my eye on the “True Love’s Kiss” Lipstick.
