MAC Venomous Villains features four fabulous villains, including Cruella De Vil. While I don't really like her personally (I love dogs, especially my 10 year old golden retriever mix :), I do like the color story of this collection due to its wear-ability for me. (Golds, copper, red lips and some darker than nude blush? How many of those do I have in my stash? Loads of them ;) So my sole item from the Cruella De Vil Collection was Darkly My Dear Blush.
Darkly My Dear Blush is a matte finished dirty reddened plum with a predominant brown tone to it. It's a blush I can see using when something more is needed than just a nude blush. I would use a light to medium hand on this as it does build up in pigment very easily. I would suggest matching it with strong red lips and use lean towards the lighter end of the eye shadows of this collection.
Aside from Darkly My Dear Blush, I almost got Wicked Ways Lipglass and Heartless Lipstick. While they are both beautiful shades of cherry red with a hint of a blue undertone, I vetoed against them as I rarely wear red lipstick or lipgloss. My reds in my stash include Brave Red Lipstick, Russian Red Lipstick, Venetian Lustreglass and Cockney Lipstick. I thonk the last time I wore them was just before spring but I am sure that will change soon since checking out this collection.
For now, enjoy the product pictures and swatches. I will be sure to post looks soon :)
