Manic Panic, we all remember them from the days of our youth and dyeing our hair crazy colors. Well ok maybe not ALL of us, but I certainly do! They were THE #1 choice if you wanted your hair purple, or red, or blue
Now Manic Panic has makeup out as well as hair products, and their new collection for fall 2010 is called Creature of the Night. Happily all their products are rated Vegan and cruelty-free, so that’s great to know!
Creature of the Night features a few different palettes as well as individual lipsticks, mascara, nail polish, powder and an eyeshadow/liner duo.
First impression when I saw the packaging was “oooh, this looks cool!”. I love the colors and design on the packaging, very much what I expected from them.
Second impression when I touched the packaging was “ooooh this feels cheap!”. The lip palette felt on the flimsy and thin side and didn’t have a heaviness associated with it that I expect when I think “quality”. The other products which come in plastic containers also all feel very inexpensively made.
But I am not one to judge solely on packaging so let’s see what’s inside, shall we?
