Wonder Woman

Last week saw the new Wonder Woman collection, from M·A·C cosmetics, being released on the Selfridges website. With a pow and a ka-boom, the collection has really caught the eye of many with its bold colours and iconic comic book artwork. The collection will be launched online on the M·A·C site this Thursday 3rd March 2011.

I had convinced myself that I did not need to indulge in this new collection, despite the lure of its colossal sized lip glosses and mammoth mineralised skin finishes. However when I attended the M·A·C event last week at London Fashion Week, we were treated to two items from the new collection which excited me greatly.

The first product is the super-sized MSF in Golden Lariat. The packaging really is amazing; the show-stopping red trimmed with a bold blue and the lids emblazoned with the classic Wonder Woman logo. As I said before, the MSF is huge, such a size it could be a piece of weaponry that an self-proclaimed superhero would be proud of! Golden Lariat is made up of three powders, a gorgeous, lightly shimmery copper, a rich bronzed brown and a wonderful golden highlighter. Either colour could be worn alone, or be swirled together. I love my MSFs and this one is no exception.

The second product is the cheek duo in Amazon Princess, which once again has been super-sized and mirrors the dimensions of a beauty powder more than your average blush. A satin finish powder, you are faced with a bright, magenta pink and a darker berry-pink laced with gold pearl. I would find this powder a lot trickier to wear. The pink is extremely highly pigmented, a truly invincible colour, so a soft application is paramount. I am not such a pinky cheek girl, opting for more corals and peachy colours, but I will certainly be giving this a go. I particularly love the colour of the smaller side of the cheek duo, it is a little less pow!

What are your thoughts on the new Wonder Woman collection?

    Oh, wow. I've been drawn to this collection for a while now – and so I love this post! I really do love what I can see of the shimmery sort of dark rose shade from the blush, it looks like it would be perfect for a sun-kissed blush look!

    These products look like they might be a little intense for some people like me, because I like more natural colors but I want to see what these look like in person first. Thanks for the great review!

    Thatโ€™s So Fletch

    I love the packaging of this collection. I didn't like how the nail polishes were just red and blue so I had to force myself to stay away from buying it for the packaging!

  18. 27th February 2011 / 9:39 am

    Two of my favourite products! This new collection is amazing. Definitely will be splurging out on it – especially the lipsticks! xx

    Oh wow! These look really awesome! I don't really dabble in makeup but I think I would get this just for the packaging! XD
