Pure evil has never looked this good.

Words by

Victoria Martin

Last month MAC launched a 14-piece range which accompanied the release of the movie Maleficent, featuring the Disney villain we all love to hate, played by Angelina Jolie. With razor-sharp cheekbones, porcelain skin and glamorous red lips, pure evil has never looked so good. 

Among the products that stand out for us is the limited edition True Love’s Kiss red lipstick ($38), which is rich and highly pigmented. When paired with the Anthurium’ Pro Longwear Lipglass ($45) from the collection it gives a seductive and mysterious rich red pout. The lip products were actually used on Ange during filming, the finish alternating between matte, sheer, opaque or glossy, according to what was happening as the plot progressed.

Here at Fashion Journal, we also love the Maleficent eyeshadow quad ($72) despite the fact that it isn’t as unique as you’d imagine for a Disney villain, (she did have a green face with purple eyeshadow in the original movie), but in fact these shades are wearable and long lasting. The other benefit to this quad is that the colours are all permanent eyeshadows in MAC’s line, so you won’t have that sinking feeling when you finish a shade and can’t replace it. 

Our other favourite from the collection is the nail lacquer Uninvited ($23), a perfect nude with a sheen, as shown in our Maleficent inspired makeup look above. 

Overall, the collection is classic and wearable, a modern-day Robert Palmer’s girl. Thumbs up from us!
