Disney has a hit with its new movie Maleficent starring Angelina Jolie as the evil but beautiful villain from Sleeping Beauty. Mac Cosmetics has a winner, too, with its Maleficent Collection inspired by the film.
Products include dramatic red lip colors; intense, smoky eye shadows; and darkly elegant nail lacquers. The collection will be available through June 26, including at the MAC counter at Macy's at Fayette Mall and at Maccosmetics.com.
Beware, items are selling fast. A ruby red lip color called "True Love's Kiss," for instance, is sold out online.
Fans looking to re-create Jolie's look from Maleficent can find a host of how-to videos at Youtube.com.
