M·A·C “My Dark Magic” and “She Who Dares”

Lately Mr. Postman has stopped by with a few goodies for me. Not very much though, but enough to keep me happy and occupied for a while. I haven't been wearing any makeup since the classic look I wore for the Karpe Diem concert, and I won't until my body decides to stop acting up. I've been terribly out of shape, my neck is killing me, giving me headaches and making me nauseous.

Anyway, back to the fun stuff. Today Mr. Postman left me a small yellow padded envelope, and inside I found two M·A·C Mineralize Eye Shadow Duos from the latest collection Venomous Villains. "She Who Dares" (deep navy with blue pearl & deep forest green with lime green pearl) and "My Dark Magic" (deep pink with pink pearl & deep plum with purple pearl) are from Maleficent's part of the collection. I'm a little ashamed, I have on several occasions said that I was skipping everything from Venomous Villains, but what do you know - I was dragged into it.

Loving purple the way I do, I'll have to crown "My Dark Magic" my absolute favorite of the two. As you can see of the picture mine has a lot of silvery veining, which I really like. This is my very first encounter with M·A·C Mineralize Eye Shadow, so I'm a bit excited to see if I'll like them or not. I've heard a lot about these MES, both good and bad things, bot I'm still looking forward to trying them out for myself. The thing I like the most about them is that no two eyeshadows are alike when it comes to color and veining.

I have also promised my girls Pinch and Fieran to do a look with a black base underneath. I'm a little afraid I'll end up looking like the raccoon-eyed Taylor Momsen, but a promise is a promise! Wink

*doing the happy dance*

  1. Heheh, funny you got something from the collection XD. Cause I didnt! xD I was about to buy “My Dark Magic”, but they didnt look like the one you got there! The ones I looked at werent “split” in two. They had only 1 purple/black color in it, and the swatches on my hand looked dirty. ;/

  2. Ja, jeg tror uten sort base kan du bli litt vel blasse i fargen!

  3. Oooh, the pictures look so yummy. Feeling slight remorse for not getting the purple in London. Oh well. The pictures are showing up in the post previous to this one on my computer – maybe just me Smile

    Oh they both look so purty!

  4. kuraikyo:
    Bah! I so wasn’t going to, and now I’m seriously lemming several things. They weren’t split you say? Weird. Every one I’ve seen (do a quick Google search for instance) have two colors in them.Thinking Anyway, dry swatches of these MES aren’t anything to brag about, but foiled? Oh my.. perfection.

    Det kommer vel an på om man bruker dem tørre eller om man foiler dem? De ser veldig pigmenterte og flotte ut om man foiler dem. Smile

    Hm, I’m sorry? Smile I love the way my purple look, with the veining and all, but I’m a little afraid that I won’t get that dark purple color out of it.

    I’m not sure what you meant about the pictures showing up in the previous post? Please explain, I might have messed up the code somewhere – it would be typical of me. Wink

  5. Pinch:
    Thank you for notifying me! I tried my blog in Opera, and there the error was. My mistake. I f*cked up the code a little. It’s all good now, yes? Grin

  6. It’s all good, darling! Smile

  7. Nei men kvinnfolk! Når du legger ut bilder av de der MÅ du legge ut bilder av eskene også! Selv om man har sett dem tusen ganger før. De ER så fine. *sikle* Vilvil prøve dem.. suuuukk.

  8. Pinch:

    Hehe, jeg beklager så mye, men jeg utstår ikke emballasjen på denne kolleksjonen, så hos meg finner du nok bare bilder av det faktiske produktet. Sorry! Grin De er flotte, og jeg har mange ganger angret på at jeg lot være å kjøpe iallfall to av MESene som kom ut med Style Black. Helt ærlig syns jeg faktisk “My Dark Magic” er penere enn “Young Punk” – du kan se sammenligning hos MakeupGeek.

  9. Hi,

    These 2 MES are so gorgeous. Yes, the veinings on My Dark Magic is awesome. These are the 2 things that I wanted so badly from MAC VV, but both are already out of stock.

    Looking forward to your looks from them.

  10. Vonvon:
    Hello, and thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment in my blog! Smile You could always get them from eBay if you want them enough to pay the price.. I bought mine from someone on Twitter who had two of each, and I was very happy to be so lucky. Smile

    I’ll try to do a few looks soon, I promise.

  11. Hi Shamini,

    You are welcome. Do visit mine too. Smile

    Yes, I am currently ‘stalking’ eBay for these 2. Looking for a good deal. I saw some of them were not too much higher than the retail price. *fingers crossed.

  12. Vonvon : Do you know anybody in India? They haven’t gotten their VV collection yet… you could ask them to keep a look out for you Smile
