MAC Wonder Woman!

Photobucket

Well I am sure you are all excited for today's official release of MAC's Wonder Woman collection! I have so far only hauled two goodies (ordered online last week), but will swing by my counter tomorrow to see what else I might like. The two items I ordered online have, so far, been awesome, so keep reading to find out what I got!




I got: 'Pink Power' MSF and 'Mighty Aphrodite' blush! I would daresay these are two of the most popular items of the collection, and I can certainly see why: the products are beautiful and flattering, and the packaging is actually really fun, a lot cuter in real life!

'Pink Power' MSF is HUGE! I took a photo with a regular-sized MSF so you can see how big it is:

The size is really fun, and definitely a smart move from MAC, in my opinion. At $35, the price makes it totally worth all of the fun inside!

But packaging only gets you so far- in addition to the lovely container, this MSF is simply gorgeous when applied. There are obviously three sections, a bronzer, a blush and a highlighter. Not sure why they divided it the way that they did, because it can be tricky to use a larger brush like the 187 in the smaller portions. But, the colors are fantastically flattering. I have been thinking about getting a matte bronzer lately, because I need a little warmth to my NW20 complexion! So this was perfect for that, and the highlighting colors complement perfectly.

Overall, 'Pink Power' is a must-have on my list!



'Mighty Aphrodite' blush is also grande-sized! Here is a comparison between it and regular powder blush:

It is very reminiscent of Ripe Peach, although I feel it is a bit cooler in tone than Ripe Peach- a bit more pinky coral. The two colors are also strangely divided up in this compact, again I'm not sure why they gave less of the darker color, I would have found it more aesthetically pleasing had it been more symmetrical, but that's just me!

I know this is the product everyone is clamoring for, but it is not my favorite. It's hard to put a finger on the problem, but I felt like it pulls red on my skin a little even though I hardly touched the deeper color. Even when I only applied the light side, I felt like it simply didn't complement my skin tone- I was hoping for a true coral. But, I guess that means there is pretty good color pay-off if that's what you're looking for, right?? I hope it works out better for others than it did for me!

l to r: light side, dark side, both blended

Anyways, as soon as I get my hands on the other things I want, I will be sure to post them! I am eyeing Amazon Princess blush, Heroine lipstick, the colored mascaras, and possibly Golden Lariat MSF (if it's not too dark!).

What about you, what did/will you get?
