MidValley Megamall was transformed into a comic book set yesterday with the launch of the MAC Cosmetics Wonder Woman collection. How many of you have been anticipating this? Come on, be honest 🙂
Personally, I was not feeling it ever since I saw the pictures from all the online news, and I still am not feeling the collection. Its not the cartoon feel to the packaging that’s bugging me. Let’s be honest. Wonder Woman is a comic character. MAC did a great job translating the primary colours of a comic book into packaging. I don’t have to like it, but it makes sense 😛
But I was not quite taken with the colours and textures and feel in general.
Still, that’s not to say I’m not going to bring you photos of the products I managed to take pictures of 🙂
I got the makeup artist to try the Mighty Aphrodite blush duo on me, and I kind of liked it 🙂 The colour suited my skin and it looked fresh and glowy. If it was in normal packaging I might consider it 😛
The Mineralize Skin Finish in Golden Lariat looked interesting. But infinitely too warm for my skintone.
And finally, the eyeshadow quads.
There was so much hullaballoo online about Defiance and Lady Justice that I did not realize there was a green quad – Valiant! Did you guys know about that? Most of the ladies yesterday opted for Lady Justice for their eyes – blue eyeshadow definitely reigned the night. But I opted for Valiant to test out for colour.
The makeup artist applied the light shimmery white gold shade all over my lid, followed by Diana Undercover (dark forest green) and Spinning Transformation (olive bronze with yellow pearl) in the crease. The colour in this quad is surprisingly light compared to the other two, so it only showed up quite subtle on my skin.
So there you have it. Some pictures and my thoughts on some items in the very large Wonder Woman collection. Not surprisingly, I picked nothing up from this one (do I ever? 😛 ).
Are you looking forward to this one? Do you have thoughts on the collection, packaging or colours? 🙂
