MAC Goes To The Dark Side With Its 'Maleficent' Collab

What's black and neutral and blood red all over?

This spring is shaping up to be a seriously witchy time for MAC Cosmetics. Lorde's purple lipstick-centric collaboration is due out in early June, and now the makeup company has released images of its collection for Disney's upcoming "Maleficent" movie. It's just as dramatic as one might expect.

The new flick really pulled out all the stops in the beauty department. In the titular role, Angelina Jolie is all perfectly arched eyebrows, glam red lips and razorblade cheekbones. Hot damn, those cheekbones. Her look set a high bar, but MAC delivered on a range that is both wearable and evocative of Maleficent's particular brand of bad. Bad in the very good sense of the word.

MAC created a full-face look, along with three nail polish shades in red ("Flaming Rose"), black ("Nocturnelle") and a very pretty beige ("Uninvited"). The lipstick — a lush red fit for an evil glamour queen — is likely to be a big hit, and it's rounded out with a matching lipgloss and liner for those who want to amp up their pout even more. For those ready to brave contouring, there is a sculpting powder. Just remember: Jolie had her natural cheekbones extended with prosthetics for the movie, so keep expectations somewhat reasonable.

Check out the slideshow below for the full range, available online May 8 and in stores May 15.
