MAC Venomous Villains Cruella De Vil Swatches & Review

Cruella De Vil for MAC Venomous Villains is a collection made up of more “natural” colors such as reds and pinks and some earth tones.

  • Sweet Joy Eyeshadow – Frosted creamy pale gold (frost)
  • De-Vil Eyeshadow – Copper (veluxe pearl)
  • Carbon Eyeshadow – Intense black (matte)
  • Innocence, Beware! Lipstick – Light yellow pink (cremesheen)
  • Heartless Lipstick – Cherry red (amplified)
  • Wicked Ways Lipglass – Light nude with gold pearl
  • Devilishly Stylish Lipglass – Deep Fuchsia with pink pearl
  • Darkly My Dear Blush – Dirty brown plum (matte)
  • Her Own Devices Beauty Powder – Cool nude

Eyeshadows


Sweet Joy


De-Vil


Carbon


L to R: Sweet Joy, De-Vil, Carbon

Sweet Joy is so pale, but would make a nice highlight color. I was surprised that I liked De-Vil the most, it’s really pretty. Carbon is Carbon. I already have it from before and I find it patchy and hard to work with (as a lot of mattes can be).


Lipsticks


Innocence, Beware!


Heartless


L to R: Heartless, Innocence, Beware!

I love both of these. Innocence, Beware! is very sheer and this was a few coats here, but it’s still a great pink. Heartless is a fabulous bright coral/red.


Lipglass


L to R: Devilishly Stylish, Wicked Ways

I love both of these as well!

Overall:

I liked more in this collection than I imagined I would. For my skin tone neither Darkly My Dear or Her Own Devices really worked, but they would work for other people. I think the must haves here are De-Vil, Innocence, Beware!, Heartless, Wicked Ways and Devilishly Stylish.

How are you feeling Cruella De Vil?

    These are so awesome! I didn’t realize that the collection was going to be more than just Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. I love Cruela De Vil and will be getting the “Her Own Devices” I think it would make a nice blush for my skin tone plus I can’t want to have a compact with Cruela on it!

    I love the blushes! Surprising quite soft palette for villains.

    Heartless and Wicked Ways are just gorgeous, and I definitely want to get those. I’ll probably get Her Own Devices and Sweet Joy as well. I love De-Vil, but I’m told it’s virtually identical to Coppering, which I already have.

      You have your descriptions for Devilishly Stylish and Wicked Ways mixed up, by the way

      Actually, I think it’s just the labels on the photos that are mixed up for the lipsticks & lipglasses.

      Oops. You’re right Ulmiel! The lipglass descriptions at the top are mixed up. Wicked Ways is the bright/red one. The photo labels are also mixed up for the lipsticks & lipglasses.

        Hi SB_Sweetie,

        All fixed now!

      The lipglass photo caption is still mixed up…

    Cruella is the best for me, both Lipglasses and Lipstick Heartless are awesome! Really cool colours.

    I think all of the them are pretty awesome but Cruela de Vil is more to my liking. I love the more natural, earthy tones in this collection.

    Well I didn’t realize that the collection was available. I got behind in all the blogs. I had rugs put in my apartment last week. You know what kind of mess that brings. I just got everything back together Monday. I was exhausted! I ordered last night and most everything I wanted was sold out. I don’t even know what I ordered!! I remember ordering Jade Dragon and that’s about it.

    This is all a bit neutral for me – I can see these being a big hit though

    Adorable packaging again, but the actual colors of this group just won’t mesh well with my skin tone… at all. I bet they’ll be gorge on some of you girls though!
