Mirror Mirror on the Wall

So I normally don’t feature the same brand in two weeks but this is just too good to pass up so think of it as a Big MAC instead of the usual burger if you will. MAC has partnered with Disney to create a Venomous Villains collection and I have been eagerly waiting for more news so that I can properly write something on it as I am a big fan of the villains. Yes the princesses are all very nice and what not if you’re a kid but there’s something delightfully evil about Cruella who is just a misunderstood fashionista or Malificent who says hell in a Disney cartoon or the Evil Queen who quite frankly just wanted to stay pretty. (Can’t say much about the fourth villain Dr. Facilier since I haven’t seen Princess and the frog but interesting choice to choose a man villain for the collection.)

Imagine my delight when I saw that the press kit contained interviews with the characters. Because I got such a kick out of them, I’m going to take the time to transcribe the two interviews that are particularly snarky just for your reading pleasure. Check it out after the cut. And oh, the colour palettes of the collections are darn pretty too. My favourite is Maleficent’s collection as I’m a sucker for anything blue, green or purple and also because she’s my favourite villain. The other villain collections are nice but seems more for the every day girl although the Evil Queen's wicked pink lipstick is bound to provide a pop of colour to anyone's face.

Interview with the Evil Queen
Let's face it. Your apple idea was flawed as there was an antidote (true love's kiss). If you could do it over again, how would you eliminate Snow White?
I should have turned HER into that ugly old witch. Prince Charming finds her repulsive. I am the fairest, and she dies of a broken heart. What could be more perfect?

You were known as a great beauty. Do any modeling in your youth?
Not much. I always found the mirror to be my worst critic.

What does your hair look like under that regal hood?
As black as night, as long as a winter's wind and far more stunning than a bob with a bow.

I suggest you ask another question. after all, I am not know as the Good Queen.

Beauty staple?
Sinister- my signature shade- over full lips and a loyal mirror.

Known for?
Catch me on a bad day and I can be a real witch.

Mood disorder?

Interview with Maleficent
Do you ever feel like you overreacted to not getting invited to that party at the palace?
Me? Overreact? The mistress of all evil? NEVER!

You have a very bold fashion sense and your signature outfit is clearly couture. Any fashion advice?
What makes you feel powerful is always a good choice. Plus, black is so slimming.

Who does your magnificent eyebrows?
My eyebrows are naturally malefic and magnificent.

Evil never gets old.

Favourite meal?
Revenge truly is a dish best served cold.

Beauty staple?
General gloom and intense cold, it keeps the skin looking tight and fresh.

Can't stand?
To be left out.

Ravens and revenge.

Casting spells and party crashing.

  1. Halloween is coming soon :) or do you mean using green/purple/blue all at once to a 9-6 job? ;) No, only kidding. They look great, gotta check it out, definitely.

  2. The collection is super!
    Will it really be available just on Oct 4 in HK? In Italy it has been presented last week but I missed it, as I'm coming to HK in 2 days I hoped to do a bit shopping there and to buy some pieces of the collection, but I'll leave on Oct 3... sad story!

  3. Oct 4 in HK, so late? I thought it was sept 30, or is that US only?

    I can't wait!
