MAC Wrong Spell & Hot House

I limited myself with what I picked up from MAC’s Venomous Villains collection. For some reason I was drawn to Wrong Spell, and I thought Hot House was beautiful. Hot House is described as a deep raspberry with pink pearl and from the Evil Queen’s collection. Wrong Spell is described as a deep plum with pink purple and from Maleficent’s collection.

Maleficent is my favorite of the bunch, to be honest. She had magical powers and she could shapeshift into a gorgeous black and purple dragon. What’s not to love? Here you can see her with my Cheshire Cat Collection. I love the Cheshire Cat and have a ton of plush Cheshires, as well as shirts. I tend to pick up anything I find cute that has the Cheshire cat on it. Maleficent the Dragon is one of my few non-Cheshire stuffed animals.

Here you can see the special packaging on each lipglass. It’s cute.

This is Wrong Spell on top of NYX lipliner in Currant (applied lightly and filled in the lips).

This is Hot House all on its own, no lipliner, hastily thrown on.

Seeing Wrong Spell swatched, it looked really brown on my hand and I thought maybe I wouldn’t like it. After putting it on, I liked it, but it was hard to get it to apply as evenly as I’d like, so I probably need to try it on top of a lipstick. Hot House looked absolutely fabulous on its own, so that made me really happy.

Did you pick up anything from Venomous Villains? If so, please share!

      Oh! That is cute packaging, and pretty colors.

      I’ll admit I’m skipping the Venomous Villains because I’m not really into Disney, but I’m enjoying seeing other bloggers’ takes. :D

        I know I’m a total dork for loving Disney :) I even used to have resident passes to the theme parks.

        • http://paintedmoogle.blogspot.com/ PaintedMoogle

          I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. :D I can imagine myself being a Disney lover if I had been exposed to it more.

      I find it kinda strange that Ursula wasn’t included in this collection..seems like she’d be perfect! btw Hot House looks suuuper pretty.

      • Phyrra

        Yeah Ursula would have been one of my choices, as she’s pretty cool and I loved the Little Mermaid. I think it’s very difficult when you’re limited to only 3 or 4 villains when there are some really cool ones.

        I definitely agree about Hot House! I think it’s very pretty. And I don’t think it was one of the top picks, either.

      *Hopefully* I have Toxic Tale on it’s way from Bloomingdales. I managed to snag Bite of an Apple off of Specktra, and hopefully that goes well too. I wanted Hot House, but figured it looked like every other Hot Pink lipglass (almost)

      • Phyrra

        Are there any you want me to try and swatch next to it for you? I need to still swatch some black shadows coming up soon.

        Hot House is more of a raspberry or rosey pink to me as opposed to a more hot pink. However, I fully admit that I’m one of those people who owns like 10 different hot pinks because each one is slightly different :P I’m such a dork :)

        • http://www.aijuswhanakno.com Mika Chan

          How about just a general Hot pink/raspberry lippie swatch post? That would be awesome <3 And now you're making me sad that I didn't snag Hot House, lol.

          • Phyrra

            Ok I’ll try to find all of mine and do that this weekend along with the black shadow one :)

    • http://pa1nt3d-pr1nc3ss.blogspot.com/ KittenMittens

      Out of the lippies I ended up with Cruella’s Wicked Ways and Maleficent’s Revenge is Sweet and Cruella’s Heartless lipstick and Maleficent’s Dark Deed lipstick. Kinda sucks the 2 are from Cruella’s line, I found her muy ugly. I wanted the Evil Queen dangit! I’m super happy to have 2 Maleficent themed lipschtuffs though. Sleeping Beauty is one of my favs! Part of the reason I bought the 2 mineralize shadows was because she was on the packaging lol. Then I realized I was being stupid and returned them pronto. :)

      • Phyrra

        I may end up with Violetta from a friend, but if not I’ll probably purchase it eventually, since it’s a Pro item. It’s gorgeous :)

        The lipsticks all looked nice.

        Yay for you returning them! I actually ended up being prompted to buy Meow’s Witch (the black base with green shine), since I realized how much I liked the MAC mineralize equivalent. Since I already own Warlock and Necromancer and loved them, I realized I was silly for not having Witch.

        • http://pa1nt3d-pr1nc3ss.blogspot.com/ KittenMittens

          :) I think I have Witch just because they sold me on the ” If you like this one, don’t miss warlock and necromancer too!” so I was like, OH THEY MUST BE ALIKE! BUY NAOW! I think it’s still in the plastic though. I have so many I’m slowly working my way through. My train case has so many sealer stickers stuck to it hahah

          Violetta did look pretty sweet! I skipped because I’m always dying my hair red and I thought it could be clashy magoo.

          • Phyrra

            LOL, I tend to not think too much about clashing.

      OMG…Hot House is HAWT!

      • Phyrra

        Yes it is! I can’t believe more people didn’t like it.

    • cinseven13

      I wasn’t going to even look, but now that you’ve shown us how lovely these shades are, I may have to peek.

      The Evil Queen lippy made me laugh, I know someone who used that as an online name.

      • Phyrra

        You should at least peek :)

      I skipped out on hot house, but i totally should have picked it up. :/

      I’m not too big on disney, so I figured I was gonna skip this collection.. then I saw some swatches and had to run out and get things! I made two trips – the first being for the things i ‘needed’ – Innocence, Beware lipstick, and all three evil queen eye shadows. (I’m a sucker for purple)
      Thennnn of course I wound up looking at the collection online last night and saw some more things I just had to have. Luckily, some of it wasn’t in stock, or I would be broke right now. I got Darkly My Dear blush, Strange Potion lipglass and Sweet Joy e/s. I was gonna get the cool liquid powder but they only had the darker shade. I’m really happy violetta is permanent at PRO though.

      • Phyrra

        I skipped the purple eye shadows because, while they are pretty, I do have a lot of pretty purples from Fyrinnae and MAC and other companies that I thought matched pretty closely for my needs. You had a good haul :)

        I love the shimmer in Violetta which is one of the reasons I want to eventually grab it.

    • http://daintydarlingdigits.blogspot.com DaintyDarlingDigits

      I love Hot House on you and I can’t wait to see you use it in a look. And adorable plushies!

      I picked up Violetta, Toxic Tale, Bite of an Apple and Bad Fairy and am in love with the whole bunch of them!


      I snagged wicked ways, heartless, dark deed, violetta, strange potion, and both mineralized shadows. I wanted toxic tale, but had no idea what I’d pair it with blush and shadow wise.. plus I found it a little “bright”.

      The lipglee was cute, but I tend not to wear glitter filled lippies.

      I’m kinda wishing I bought the pale lipstick from the cruella set… oh my me and lipsticks, lol.

      • Phyrra

        Toxic Tale looked really cool! I think it would actually work the blush I’ve been wearing a ton, the DuWop Watermelon. It would also work with a nude blush, I’m betting.

        I heard really bad things about the lipgelee,

        LOL! Lippies are awesome.

    • sarah

      You know what I found really odd? There are all these established villains in the Disney catalogue, and they chose to use Dr. Facilier from “The Princess and the Frog”. I mean, was it just because it was a newer movie? Because someone previously mentioned that they should’ve used Ursula from “The Little Mermaid” and I wholeheartedly agree.

      • Phyrra

        I still need to see it!

    • Erline

      I’m not a huge Mac fan but I will be getting a couple of lipsticks from this collection when we get it here.
      Both of these are lovely, Hot House looks gorgeous on you.

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Erline :)

      Ooh liked the look of Hot House on swatches I’d seen, but this is the first time I’ve seen it on lips…severely lovely!

      • Phyrra

        Thank you! I like it!

    • http://tahitithal.blogspot.com Tahiti

      I’m hoping to snag a little bit of everything from VV with my next paycheck.
      I thought it was rather odd with their choice of villains, especially Dr. Facilier, but I guess they were trying to remind everyone of the Princess and the Frog?
      Here’s hoping maybe they’ll release another collection, maybe with Ursula, Jafar (some deep reds/browns), Wicked Stepmother?

      • Phyrra

        I would love to see Ursula and Jafar. I always thought Jafar would be cool :)

    • http://www.sellyourmobile.org/ Harriet

      I definatley prefer the hot house gloss, the pink is nicer!

      • Phyrra


    • Krista

      I bought Darkly My Dear powder blush…I needed a blush and this one looks to suit me…that one is from Cruella….

    • Rebecca

      I loved Maleficent too, I have that stuffed Dragon :)

      • Phyrra

        Yay! I’m not alone :)

    • http://bettyrayblogs.blogspot.com/ Katrina

      Looks like such a fun collection!

      • Phyrra

        It is :)

    • Kira

      Evil Queen ’37
      Maleficent ’59
      Cruella de Vil ’61
      Dr. Facilier ’09

      The venomous fems are from early Disney classics. No latter day femains (female villains) in this collection.

      Dr. Facilier is the odd man out (so to speak) both by being male and the only recent Disney villain.

      I suspect his appearance represents inclusivity, for all genders and for any youths who haven’t experienced the classics (poor things).

      Since Phyrra and company turned me onto Fyrinnae, Aromaleigh, and Meow … I haven’t purchased anything from MAC. My credit card is grateful, sort of, even though those Aromaleigh orders were huge! :)

      • Phyrra

        I still love MAC for a few products, primarily lipglasses and lipsticks. Though there are some fabulous indie products for lippies, such as Fyrinnae’s lip lustres, Morgana Cryptoria’s lipsticks and Evil Shades lipsticks.

      Hot House looks pretty. Just picked up Toxic Tale (in my search for a coral that suits me) and Mean & Green polish. I told my sister about the collection and she text me to say she bought ‘six things – oops!’ ahah :)

      • Phyrra

        Toxic Tale looked REALLY nice.

    • http://silhouettescreams.blogspot.com SilhouetteScreams

      Hot House is so ‘you’ :D

      • Phyrra

        Yay thank you :)
        I think so too!

    • http://www.sweetcorrosion.com sweetcorrosion

      I got two of these, I got “My Dark Magic” and “She Who Dares” eyeshadows and thought of you. :)

      • Phyrra

        You should wear them when I come see you!

        • http://www.sweetcorrosion.com sweetcorrosion

          i probably will. :)
