MAC Venomous Villains: Part 2-Bad Fairy Nail Lacquer and Her Own Devices Beauty Powder

Hey Chicas! 


I hope you are all enjoying your day so far! As promised, here is part two of what I picked up from MAC's latest collection-Venomous Villains. To see part one featuring the lipsticks, click HERE. (Click all images to enlarge)

Bad Fairy nail lacquer ($13.00) was part of the Maleficent collection. There were a total of three polishes that were released with the collection, but the other two did not pique my interest like Bad Fairy did. I knew I had to have it, as I had nothing of the sort in my collection. Bad Fairy is a gorgeous magenta/burnt orange duo chrome with a pearled and shimmery finish. This polish is very interesting because in some lights you see the burnt orange, but then in others you can see the magenta color. This polish looks best in natural lighting-I think that way you can appreciate it more since it shines so beautifully that way, and you can truly see it's effects. Although this polish contains lots of shimmers, the formula does not feel gritty and rough on the nails at all. On the contrary, my nails were super smooth. Application was a breeze with Bad Fairy. One coat was a bit sheer, two coats gave me a semi-opaque nail, but three coats really gave me the opaque look I was going for. I am happy to report that I experienced no air bubbles and drying time was very speedy! Even though Bad Fairy is a gorgeous polish that everybody should own in their stash if they can still get their hands on it, I do have one gripe about it. After I removed Bad Fairy from all of my nails with a cotton ball and nail polish remover, my hands were a glittery mess! But it's nothing a little hand wash with soap and water can't fix.
I want to mention that I have been reading that lots of people have been having problems with the nail polish brush. Luckily, my brush was neat and it did not contain any sparse hairs, so application was smooth.

Her Own Devices Beauty Powder


Her Own Devices Beauty Powder ($25.00) was released with the Cruella de vil collection. First of all, I love the packaging! It's fun, while being sleek at the same time. Not to mention that this compact contains a handy mirror! How awesome is that? Her Own Devices is a pretty neutral nude color with a hint of peach. There is a soft pearl-like finish (not shimmery) in this powder, but it is not really prominent on my cheeks. I knew I would like Her Own Devices because I wanted something natural looking that would work for me on those days where I don't want to fuss too much with my makeup. I have been wearing Her Own Devices Beauty Powder everyday since I got it, and I really love it so far! Works wonders for neutral looks for the daytime. I know many say that MAC beauty powders are not as pigmented as their other products but I am sure the other beauty powders released with this collection are nicely pigmented. I will say that Her Own Devices is a bit sheer on me. I have to apply about 2-3 layers to get it to show up on my cheeks. But I don't mind this because, I prefer something a bit toned down for the day. I think this beauty powder would work best for those who have fair to light skin tones, as I would assume that Her Own Devices could appear to be a bit sheer for medium to deep skin beauties. 


I hope you all enjoyed my MAC Venomous Villains haul. Thanks for stopping by lovelies!
