Back in May I reported that MAC Cosmetics teamed up with Disney to create a limited edition color collection called Venomous Villains. Today WWD posted the first look at the collection featuring four of Disney’s villians, Cruella De Vil of “101 Dalmations” fame, the Evil Queen from “Snow White,” Maleficient from “Sleeping Beauty” and Dr. Facilier from The Princess and the Frog.
There will be a total of 40 bold hues in the collection, consisting of lipstick, powder, lip gloss and blush shades, ranging in price from $12 to $29.50, and divided into four collections emblazoned with the characters’ images — were inspired by Pantone reproductions of Disney’s original drawings. Launching globally on September 30th, are you excited?
“Disney gave us the colors used when these characters were drawn throughout their history,” said Jennifer Balbier, vice president of product development for MAC, noting that Cruella and the Evil Queen share more “real woman” shades, such as red lips and peachy blush. Maleficent is “pure fantasy,” said Balbier, noting that offbeat purples, blackened shades and pearlized nails were used. Dr. Facilier headlines the new Magically Cool Liquid Powders. “This is a featherlight powder that goes on like a mist and either sets or enhances foundation, but also lends dimensionality on naked skin,” said Balbier.
