The most evil of all Disney villains is getting her own MAC Cosmetics line! To coincide with the release of Maleficent, starring bewitching beauty Angelina Jolie, MAC will be releasing an 11-piece collection, WWD reports. The line will include face, eye, lip, and nail products. This is an unprecedented collaboration for MAC, as the company has never done a collection inspired by a motion picture. Keep a lookout for the collection in the Spring, and get excited for Maleficent the film, which releases this Summer.
