Hi everyone! This entry is kinda special because I have discovered my love for Maleficent thanks to the newly released “Maleficent” movie by Disney starring Angelina Jolie as the protagonist.
The 2014 movie is actually told from Maleficent’s point of view and how she came to curse Princess Aurora with the famous curse such that she becomes Sleeping Beauty.
To really up the hype for the movie, I actually saw this nail art tutorial on Youtube and recreated this look the day before watching the movie. Actually I was just bored and thought the tutorial was easy enough to recreate la #sadsociallife
Please check out her channel, I really love her nail designs! :)
And yes, I did manage to recreate most of the look save for the nails on my right hand because drawing the horns with my main hand was so tough I had to redo it twice :x #noskill #newbie
I didn’t really make the horns as nice as Janelle in the Youtube tutorial but for a noob like me, it’s quite a huge feat already la lol.
So without further ado, my Maleficent nails drawn by yours truly :D
Angelina Jolie was on the cover of 8 Days that week. I subscribe to the magazine via their app because buying the physical copy is so wasteful. I throw them away into the recycling bin after reading actually.
Left hand with the My Dark Magic Mineralize Eye Shadow from the MAC Venomous Villains Collection in 2012 starring of course the cartoon version of Maleficent.
Right hand was much more simpler (polka dots for the middle finger!) pictured here with Revenge is Sweet Lipglass from the same MAC collection as the eyeshadow above.
Now onto the main objective of this entry – reviews and swatches of the items I bought from the MAC x Maleficent collection in conjunction with the release of the movie above.
The vinyl figurines you see here are from Funko Pop which Hidaya got me addicted to lol. The movie edition of Aurora and Maleficent are new releases and I told her to just grab it for me once they were in stock. Thank you Mas Hila :D :D :D (jangan membunuh saya ya! hoho.) You can purchase them at Simply Toys at Plaza Singapura level 7 opposite the cinema box office :)
Here’s what I bought from the collection:
1. Natural Beauty Powder, USD$33.00
2. Anthurium Pro Longwear Lipglass, USD$22.00
3. Nail Lacquer in Flaming Rose, USD$17.50/SGD$24.00
I purchased the nail lacquer in the MAC Cosmetic stores locally because obviously nail lacquers cannot be shipped internationally but the other 2 items were part of my huge MAC haul with the Sharon & Kelly Osbourne Collections which if I have time I will do reviews on. They have not landed on our sunny shores yet. I hope they don’t because I am tempted to get the eyeshadow quad from the Sharon collection but I am on a self-imposed makeup ban till September lol. Which kinda got broken last weekend because I caved into the YSL Fall 2014 collection FML
