Just Call Me “Wonder Bella”. My Review of the “Wonder Woman” Collection from MAC
I posted last month about the debut of the “Wonder Woman” make-up collection by MAC, The Wonder Woman Collection for MAC Cosmetics Will Launch February 10th, and today was the big debut. So you know me, I was the first in line to get mine. Thank goodness I called ahead and found out that the only MAC store in Richmond at Stony Point had closed down as of 2 weeks ago. So my next result was to hit Macy’s at Regency Square Mall. I literally opened the doors of the store. I love getting first dibs on new products. Good thing I did too because the counter was filling up with customers after I was finished checking out. I had a friend with me to serve as photographer for the day and we got close up pics of all the products for my review.
First up I wear the mineralize face powder by MAC year-round so I instantly loved the Wonder Woman skinfinish. I got it in “Golden Lariat” as that goes with a darker complexion great. It comes in a huge pot so it should last a while. At $35 it should too.
The lipglass is to die for. It also comes in a huge container and it has such a high gloss shine. It comes in 4 colors, with lipsticks to match each of those lipglass colors. A bright red called, “Wonder Woman”, a hot pink called, “Athena’s Kiss”, a bronze called, “Secret Identity” and a cream pearl color called, ” Emancipation”. The lipglass runs for $20 each and the lipsticks are $15.50 each.
I love colored mascara and have been a fan of blue for years now. The “Wonder Woman” collection has blue, green, black and purple mascaras. They retail for $15 each and are gorgeous. I hope these don’t sell out quick because I know I will be back for more.
The two nail polishes are simply red and blue each. They are called “Obey Me” and “Spirit of Truth”. The red is a bold bright colored red and the blue has a very patriotic look to it. The polishes are $15 each.
For some reason I think MAC is just reproducing old products and giving them new names for some of these collections. Take for instance the “Penultimate Eyeliner”. I could have sworn this was from a previous collection. But it is great nonetheless. It goes on just like a sharpie marker. It’s $19.50.
The collection has 3 pallets of quad-eyeshadows each in the color families of green, blue and purple. They run for $40 each. I got the makeup artist to use the “Defiance” quad on me. She also used the pigment color of “Bright Fuchsia” as a base. It turned out beautifully. The pigment is $21.
So overall I was pleasantly pleased with this new “Wonder Woman” collection. There are colors for every complexion. You don’t want to know my grand total…*sigh*
