More MAC Venomous Villains Wicked Ways Lipglass & Briar Rose Beauty Powder Review & Swatches
One of the makeup artist at the MAC counter saw me coming. I swear she must have a tracking device on me! As I swatched my last couple of lemmings to confirm I definitely wanted them, she approached. I guess she knows my buying pattern. ;) Pick up stuff at early launch when available and come back for lemmings. This time around I bought MAC Venomous Villains Wicked Ways Lipglass and Briar Rose Beauty Powder.
MAC Wicked Ways Lipglass is a cherry red that leans a bit blue. It is well pigmented given that it is a lipgloss. It has some slight shimmer to it, that is very subtle and almost unnoticeable until you look very closely.
Briar Rose Beauty Powder is a cool toned pink with very light pearl. I like beauty powders since they are a little lighter in texture and are less pigmented than your average blush. For those who can be a little heavy handed with blush or are just starting out with blushes, beauty powders are definitely ones to check out. They allow for a much softer application of blush that is much more easily attained.
Briar Rose is quite a bit more cooler than I would normally go for, but it is a brighter shade that can accent a neutral look or balance out a stronger eye and lip look.
I think that will be it for Venomous Villains for me. I thought about the Magically Cool Liquid Powder, but it still didn't quite draw me in to buy. But who knows, I may just change my mind again ;) For now, enjoy the swatches. I will definitely be posting looks with Venomous Villains products soon. :)
