I love it when MAC does a makeup collaboration like the one it is doing with the upcoming Disney movie "Maleficent". Sure to be a summer blockbuster, the MAC Maleficent Makeup Collection is already a hit with makeup and movie fans alike.
Mysterious, magnificent and much misunderstood – Disney’s most iconic villain, brought to life this summer in the epic new film, “Maleficent,” inspires a limited-edition colour collection in specially designed packaging to delight the most demanding of dark sorceresses. Intensely admired for her evil elegance, despite her efforts to instill fear in the hearts of generations, this icon casts a spell of absolute adoration with sensuous shades for eyes, face, lips and nails so wickedly gorgeous, who needs beauty sleep?
The Maleficent makeup collection is dark and mysterious, yet it contains some classic shades that will stand the test of time. These are not trendy shades and I like that they can cross over through seasons and will be able to be worn for a long time even though it is a very limited collection. The packaging is definitely collector worthy.
The Maleficent makeup collection includes:
LIPSTICK - $17.50
True Love’s Kiss clean bright red (amplified)
PRO LONGWEAR LIPGLASS - $22.00

The Maleficent Eye Shadow X 4 Palette is your classic smoky eye palette. Don't be put off by Goldmine, as it is beautiful to highlight with and looks gorgeous used over a dark liner such as the Penultimate Liner in Rapid Black as well.
The collection wouldn't be complete without True Love's Kiss Lipstick and Flaming Rose Nail Lacquer. They look like they are a signature part of the film and thus a main part of the collection. True Love's Kiss is a very bright red, sort of what you think of as a true red. It is not too blue or pink or orange. The same holds true for the Flaming Rose Nail Lacquer. I wonder if Angelina is wearing these shades in the film - it looks like it.
“Maleficent,” is the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from “Sleeping Beauty,” reveals the events that hardened Maleficent’s heart and drove her to curse the baby, Aurora. The film stars Angelina Jolie and opens in theaters this summer.
