Wonderwoman Collection

Good Afternoon Bloggies!

Sorry about the delay since my last post, but I’ve been away.
We hired a log cabin in the woods, near Matlock in the Peak District and spent most of the time in the hot tub on the verandah!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So, while we were away I got my email from MAC about the Wonderwoman Collection. We were going to Nottingham on the Thursday, so of course I headed to MAC which is just up from the Market Square in the city centre.

The Wonderwoman collection was right by the door, and there were a few people looking at it.
Now, I hadn’t really wanted much from the collection – if at all, but when I saw it I changed my mind.
The mascara’s weren’t appealing to me at all. (I’ve got a bit of a mascara issue at the minute – I haven’t found “the one” despite all my searching – more to come about this I’m sure)
Lipgloss doesn’t do it for me either, and the doe-foot applicators were massively oversized (matching reviews I’d seen from American YTers.)

I don’t know what I’d planned to get – although I do like to get “something” from each new collection, but I got
Lipstick in Russian Red
Powder Blush in Mighty Aphrodite
Eyeshadow Quad in Valiant

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Packaging
It’s gorgeous! Very well thought out, lovely illustrations and great colours. I LOVE the blue and white on the inside. I actually quite like the red and blue plastic of the actual products.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lipstick – Russian Red
Now, I’m a red lipstick girl, but I hadn’t got Russian Red in my collection, so when I saw it in this collection, I knew it was one I had to get. None of the other lipstick shades were grabbing me, so I thought I’d get Russian Red. Yes I know it’s in the “standard” collection, but I wanted it anyway, and in Wonderwoman packaging – even better.
I do like it. Matt red looks good with my (pale) skintone, and I love the pin-up girl look.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Ignore the dodgy application – I didn’t line my lips)

Powder Blush – Mighty Aphrodite
I don’t usually wear much blusher, but liked the shades in this compact. The pink looks nice, and the peach is quite sheer on me. Both have a coral tone on them which I like.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eyeshadow Quad – Valiant

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now, this is my favourite buy from the collection. I really love the mirror inside, and use it for applying mascara etc.
I used the quad that evening (we went out to a concert and I’d left my UD Book of Shadows at home which I was going to use)
My favourite look at the minute is to use Valiant all over the lid, Spinning transformation blended into the crease, Diana Undercover blended to the outside quarter of the eye, and Manila Paper as a brow highlight and in to the inner corner.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Manila Paper (Veluxe Pearl) which is a pale gold colour, and very pretty!

 

 

Valiant (Frost) which is a very pale lime-y colour. Slightly glittery

 

 

Diana Undercover (Satin) which is a dark green

 

 

Spinning Transformation (Frost) which is an olive browny-green with goldy flecks.

 

 

Anyway, hope you’ve enjoyed this (I think it’s my longest post yet!) Sorry for all the images!
What do you think of the Wonderwoman collection?
