Last weekend I went to the MAC Venomous Villains (am I the only one who wants to say Villainous Venoms? haha) event at South Coast Plaza with Iyah, Caroline, Jilly and her sister.
There was a huge display and backdrops set up outside of the store, including an area where the MUAs were applying VV collection on people.
We bypassed the crowd outside and went into the store where we quickly played with the VV collection ourselves. After making our purchases, we were ready to take pictures, hehe.
As you already know, the VV collection features four Disney villains, so each villain had a backdrop where you could get your picture taken. Our favs were Cruella's and the Evil Queen's (actually I don't remember what Maleficent's backdrop was).
how cute is this little girl?
Giang and Caroline dressed as Cruella de Vil
me and Iyah, we look like we have mullets haha
hehe if you look you can see me and Iyah in the mirror
Before we went to the mall, we'd actually stopped for ramen at our favorite place (Santouka Ramen inside of Mitsuwa).
99% of the time, there is a really long line!
I have a ridiculous amount of Santouka ramen pics, considering I almost always get my favorite (spicy miso chashu ramen with egg, mmm yummy!).
Gah I could really go for some ramen right now! =P***
I went with the intention of not buying anything from the VV collection...but thanks to those enablers *ahem*...I was lucky I managed to escape with just three items. =)
from the Evil Queen line:
Bite of an Apple blush- Soft coral pink (matte)
from the Maleficent line:
Briar Rose beauty powder - Soft violet pink with pearl
from the Cruella line:
Innocence, Beware! lipstick - Light yellow pink (cremesheen)
I didn't realize until after that I got something from almost each villain, hehehe. I totally played it safe with my color choices. Briar Rose is a really pretty pink and I love the smooth texture of the beauty powder. Innocence, Beware! is a soft, pinkish nude...it was instant like at first application, hehe, plus I like cremesheen. Bite of an Apple scared me at first since it's bright and very pigmented, but Iyah really recommended it so I'm willing to give it a try. If it doesn't work out, maybe I'll exchange it if anything is still available at the MAC store (Caroline was really rocking those red lips! I think it was Heartless...but her skin is also really porcelain whereas mine is definitely not).
I'm wearing everything I got here, hehe...excuse the bright cheeks thanks to the MUA (this was also after I blended, wiped, and applied Briar Rose over it...can we say pigmented?!).
After MAC, we went to Imperial Beauty where we ooh-ed and ahh-ed over all the cheaply priced nail polishes. I left with these two:
OPI Glow Up Already! from the 2010 Burlesque Holiday Collection Essie Sew Psyched (Cashmere-soft sage pewter) from the 2010 Fall collection...yes, I like green. =)
All these trips to Imperial Beauty definitely motivate me to keep my nails polished. Here's what's currently on my hands.
My "princess" nails...super girly with OPI Panda-monium Pink, Nubar 2010, and Nicole by OPI Winter Glitterland (still love this one ever since Mona got it for me last year!).
Omg this is such a long post! One last thing...I dyed my hair black again (using Palty Turn Color Natural Black) and I'm also growing out my bangs.
But because it used to be light brown (light then medium then dark), it has a reddish tint in the sunlight.
Sorry, I wasn't wearing any makeup (just sunblock) and my iPhone camera picks up all sorts of pores I didn't even know were there, haha.
Okay okay, that's enough from me! What did you get from MAC Venomous Villains?!
Have a great weekend/week everyone!!
