MAC Wonder Woman: Lipsticks

MAC WONDER WOMAN LIPSTICK ($15.50 for 0.10 oz.) include four shades: Heroine (brown bronze), Marquise d’ (sandy cream peach), Russian Red (intense blue red), and Spitfire (bright creamy magenta).

  • Heroine is a rich, molten bronzed brown with a metallic sheen. It is nearly opaque in color, though not quite. This is a frost finish. It seems like a less red version of Strength.
  • Marquise d’ is a semi-sheer pinky-nude with soft champagne sheen. This is a lustre finish, and it is a repromote. It’s a little like Shy Girl, though lighter and sheerer.
  • Russian Red is a rich, creamy blue-based red. This is a matte finish and part of the permanent range. This is not one of MAC’s drying mattes, though!
  • Spitfire is a dark pink with magenta. This is a satin finish. It is pinker than Style Curve, pinker and less bright than Petals & Peacocks, similar to Smashbox Flirty.  Anyone else think it’s a little muted for something named Spitfire?

my thoughts on the formula: MAC Lipsticks are vanilla-scented but taste-free. I typically get four hours of wear, but some of the lighter lustre and glaze finishes tend to disappear by hour three. Amplified cremes and amplified finishes, however, tend to go beyond four. I find the formula comfortable to wear and not drying (but not moisturizing–a couple of the matte shades can be drying).

  • Product: 27/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

final thoughts: Heroine will suit warmer complexions slightly better than cooler ones, while the other three are wearable by both cool and warm skin tones. Russian Red looks stunning on light to dark and cool to warm. Keep in mind, Russian Red is permanent, so you can save $1 by buying it in regular packaging. Spitfire is rather dupeable as MAC has put out several pinky-purple shades in the past six months.

  1. Did you get a new camera? Everything looks really nice!

  2. MsJuneDay

    I really love them all! worth the $62 investment to me? I still have 2 days to think about it!

  3. Melissa

    I’m soooo excited to bur Marquis d’! All of the lipsticks look stunning on you Christine!!

  4. Charlene

    do you think you would be able too do a comparison of Marquise d’ with Hue, Creme D Nude just so we can see how nude the colour really is?

  5. Italia

    two questions. first, is marquise d’ similar to sandy b? second, would marquise d’ show up on nc40 skintones? it looks pretty sheer.

  6. Sydney

    How do you think Marquise d’ would look on my very pigmented lips? And color-wise, how does it compare to Sandy B because I know you say Sandy B is frostier, but how do the color differ? Which is more opaque?

    LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEE the Heraine on you in the close-up pic. Wow! What a great combo the way u did your eyes and the colors u used with that lip.

    I also like the Spitfire on you. Guess u can tell I’m a gal who loves those warm shades. But w/your warm, tortoise shell eyes, they look great on you.

    Do u like the feel and wear of Mac over Chanel lips?

    Thx
    Rhonda

    They all look good on you Christine. And your skin in these pics, has never looked better. Whatever’s on your skin here, makes you look perfect and luminous and shimmery!

    Spitfire looks good and not so dupe-able to me, I dunno. The Russian Red looks good on you, but not on me. The Marquise D’ covers up your lip birth mark, and Heroine actually looks hot on you in a disco-y late 70s early 80s way because of the frost.

    If this was 1995 I’d buy Heroine right now because back around that time I bought Fetish, Shag, and X-S and the MAC MUAs were encouraging me to buy ‘O’ as well, which I never did. Fetish and Shag I still have and they are very pretty colors but just buying Heroine right now would just give me flashbacks.

  10. Haley

    Love Pink Power on your cheeks and Marquise’D looks so nice!
    Russian Red is hot on you, too!

  11. A

    Would you say Marquise D is anything like Guerlain’s Galia Rouge G LIpstick?

  12. salsaOn2

    Hi chris ! u might have heard this question OVER AND OVER but can you recommend a really close color dupe for “spitfire” l/s? i cant find one that looks similar to it. ideas?

  13. hela

    Hi!  Is there any site where I can still find marquise’D and secret identity please? I really want these two!
