MAC Wonder Woman Collection Details & Photos, Thoughts, Wishlist

U.S. Launch Date: Thursday February 10, 2011
International Launch Date: March 2011

I haven't posted any updates/details/promotional images for upcoming MAC collections in a really long time. The reason? None of the collections have really sparked my interest. Mickey Contractor and Peacocky got me at the last second but the collections in the last few months haven't really inspired me. The last collection that I was this excited for was Venomous Villains (which didn't turn out to be as amazing as I had hoped) but I'm definitely excited to be excited again.

From MAC:
"Banish any thought of being a Plain Jane: M∙A∙C and Wonder Woman have joined forces! For Spring 2011, take a trip to Paradise Island with a legendary line up of super-sized Mineralize Skinfinish, bold Eye Shadow quads, Pigment, Opulash, Lipsticks and oversized Lipglass, jumbo-big Powder Blush and Penultimate Eye Liner, Nail Lacquer and Lash inspired by the larger-than-life Bold Babe. Dashing and dazzling, the iconic super heroine reminds us that inside every woman is a Mighty Aphrodite full of courage, confidence and charisma. Kaboom! Mission Accomplished!

Wonder Woman has always known the importance of astounding accessories. For her collaboration with M∙A∙C, we’ve infused her sense and fantasy and wonder into a vivid collection of awe-inspiring accessories as fierce and feminine as the heroine herself. Bright, bold, superhuman designs in Makeup Bags – from radiant Red to Bulletproof Blue, Utility Belt Brush Sets, and exclusively online, the WW T-Shirt and Invincible Mirror. Shazam!"

Phew! That's a lot of info. =P Anyways, like I've said, I'm really excited for the collection. It's not even (fully) because it's Wonder Woman -there are just some really cool products that I'm dying to try. I love how the Mineral Skinfinish compacts contain three shades and the fact that both (at least seem to be) beautiful and universal. The blush duos are really tempting me -especially Mighty Aphrodite because I'm totally addicted to corals. The colorful Opulash mascaras seem pretty cool too (I want blue!) Also, all three quads look gorgeous. The only thing is (in my opinion) usually with MAC's collection palettes, they never seem to be top quality.

As for the packaging, I'm in between. All of the products look like they came straight out of Wonder Woman's makeup drawers. I've been reading all over that people really hate the it but give MAC a break, this is a Wonder Woman collection. I know I wasn't too fond of the Venomous Villains packaging but I do feel that this really does say "Wonder Woman" even though some of the products look like children's toys. Like with Venomous Villains, I definitely feel that they could've done better but I don't hate it (don't love it either.) If it had been up to me, I would've done mainly gold packaging (to make it look more grown up and classy) with a Wonder Woman logo. Another fun (but non-grown up) idea would've been to add Wonder Woman images. I DO like the jumbo sized products though -they look really funny! (Check out the video link below.)

And now onto what I want!!

Have a great Sunday everyone! <3

P.S. I decided to add AdSense to the blog today. I was initially against placing ads on here simply because sometimes they can make everything look cluttered but after talking to my Dad, I decided to put them on the blog. I put in so much heart, time, and money (products, storage, etc.) so it's there as a means of a small income so that I can keep maintaining the blog -money doesn't grow on trees and makeup can get quite expensive! I just wanted to include this message so that everyone is aware that I do earn a small percentage from the amount of "clicks" I receive and that you of course do not need to click any of these ads.


  1. OMG! I LOVE the Wonder Woman MAC collections!!!! But they are so expensive. lol. I think I'll have to get at least one of them though.
