After so much anticipation, the Maleficent by MAC launched in the UK on the 15 May. I had already set my little wish list and was determined to get my claws on a few items.
As soon as I received their email saying the collection was available, I went online and placed an order for the lipstick – which was the item I really wanted), the lip liner and some lashes.
It is said the red True Love’s Kiss lipstick sold out online in 45 minutes – gladly, my order had been long placed and after a few days (and some delivery kerfoffle), I received my envelope of pure makeup maleficence.
Now, the lisptick… True Love’s Kiss is a beautiful bright, clean red, with some sparkly particles. It comes under their “amplified” line, which means the colours are super vivid; the finish is creamy – not as much as satin or lustre, but not as dry as matte.
Application is smooth, the lippy is highly pigmented and staying power is alright. As usual, I lined my lips with the pro long wear liner in Kiss Me quick and of course applied Lipcote on, for extra durability.
I really like that MAC doesn’t charge postage for orders over £30, and they always send a sample – usually a tiny mascara with a decent brush, which is sooo handy on the go!
True Love’s Kiss indeed delivered “lips that shame the red, red rose”, plus I had the chance to photograph it with my beloved Maleficent plush doll! Love it!
Have you tried any Maleficent by MAC products? What do you think?

Can’t help but complimenting your maleficent dolly he he it is adorable! 😀 I haven’t tried anything from this line but I have seen so many videos and posts on it, it looks nice to try and the inspiration for it is…lovely! 😀

I know, so much going around about the collection, that’s why I waited a (little!) bit to post – Maleficent overload, if there could ever be such a thing 😉

no worries !! keep up the beautiful selections !!!
I brought the lippy after reading the review and it’s truly amazing…I applied very little for the day and it looked amazing a little pinkish when applied lightly…got a few extra kisses that day 😀
Nice! That is a good way of wearing it it, as a stain – the creamy consistency is great for that!
