MAC Wonder Woman Collection

MAC Wonder Woman: Overall & Recommendations

OVERALL, I found the collection rather underwhelming, and I was particularly disappointed in the quality of the eyeshadow quads. I had a few readers ask me what I would purchase if I was normal consumer and not a beauty blogger… and I really don’t know if I’d purchase anything. At best, one or both of the blush duos. There are a few too many repromotes from the permanent range, which is more frustrating because all of the prices are increased with the collaboration than they are normally. I’m surprised they did not create any new shades of pigments for the launch.

Heroine lipstick is actually a very lovely shade, but I can see it being difficult to wear. Spitfire is a shade that we’ve been seeing in slightly different variations over the past six months. Wonder Woman lipglass had promise but the sheerness seemed off–this is Wonder Woman, where the packaging is bold and bright! Both blushes had nice pigmentation and were smooth, so I did like those. I’m just not thrilled to see the $24 price tag accompany them–at least you do get more for your money. Golden Lariat mineralize skinfinish pulls rather orange, so it is a more limited shade; it should work lovely on warm, medium to dark skin tones. Pink Power mineralize skinfinish is more universally wearable, but it is awkward to hold and feels gigantic.

I’m not sure which product disappointed me more: the eyeshadow quads or the oversized (but now awkward to use) Penultimate eyeliner. Ultimately, the pigmentation and texture are lacking in all three eyeshadow quads, with Defiance being the least pigmented. Some shades are almost chalky, but the texture is thin–almost had. I felt like I had to scrape out product in order to build up a swatch. Each palette had one, maybe two, shades that did have a soft, smooth texture and decent pigmentation, but one shade does not a palette make.

I tihnk the packaging is fine–you either love it or hate it. It’s certainly not packaging that will appeal to all. I have no emotional attachment to Wonder Woman (didn’t watch her, don’t know her back story, etc.), and it’s not my aesthetic, but I don’t carry around my makeup, so it wouldn’t matter to me that I don’t love it if the product inside high quality–but the packaging would compel me to buy just to have it.

Photos, Reviews, Swatches

Check out my recommendations, what to check your stash for, what to skip, and recommendations by skin tone!

Temptalia’s Recommendations

nice-to-haves: Amazon Princess/Mighty Aphrodite Blush Duos, Pink Power Mineralize Skinfinish, Opulash Mascara (all shades)
skip: Rapidblack Penultimate Eyeliner (the jumbo size makes it difficult to use), Defiance Eyeshadow Quad (poor pigmentation), Lady Justice Eyeshadow Quad (average pigmentation), Valiant Eyeshadow Quad (average pigmentation)

Check your stash for…

MARQUISE D’ (repromote), RUSSIAN RED (permanent), RAPIDBLACK (permanent), DEEP TRUTH (permanent), MANILA PAPER (repromote from Spring Colour Forecast), REFLeCTS BRONZE (permanent at PRO), REFLECTS PEARL (permanent at PRO), BRIGHT FUCHSIA (permanent at PRO), MARINE ULTRA (permanent at PRO).

Skip if you have…

  • Skip AMAZON PRINCESS if you have BAND OF ROSES; though not exactly dupes, both shades of the duo are remarkably to this duo.
  • Skip MIGHTY APHRODITE if you have GUERLAIN BLUSH G; if you have the latter, the pink shade is nearly the same as the lighter side of Mighty Aphrodite.
  • Skip GOLDEN LARIAT (blushing side) if you have A LITTLE BIT OF SUNSHINE; the blush duo is similar to both the bronzing side (but darker, not a dupe), while the lighter side of the duo is only a touch lighter than the blushing side of Golden Lariat.
  • Skip DEFIANCE if you have EGO; slightly less pale but close.
  • Skip REAL DRAMA if you have SKETCH, which is only a smidgen redder.
  • Skip LADY JUSTICE if you have FORGERY or URBAN DECYA UZI; they are nearly indistinguishable from each other.
  • Skip BOLD BABE if you have LOVE LACE or HOURGLASS PRISM; they are both better versions of Bold Babe.
  • Skip MANILA PAPER if you have NYLON; they are very, very close.
  • Skip VALIANT if you have KORRES #44S, which is only slightly greener.
  • Skip ATHENA’S KISS if you have MAGNETIQUE; the latter is a little darker.
  • Skip EMANCIPATION if you have BARE NECESSITIES or DEVILISHLY STYLISH; both are a little less pink but the effect is barely noticeable when worn.
  • Skip MARQUISE D’ if you have SANDY B, which is a little frostier.

Recommendations by Skin Tone

Please note that this section is merely suggesting shades that would complement a particular skin tone better than other shades, but these lists are meant to be rather exhaustive of the entire collection; it’s not reflective of must-haves for your skin tone. When it comes to cooler/warmer skin tones, these are products that lean noticeably cool/warm and therefore complement the corresponding skin tone better (but it does not mean you can’t wear a warmer product if you’re cooler!).

  • medium skin tones: Amazon Princess/Mighty Aphrodite Blush Duos, Pink Power Mineralize Skinfinish, Lady Justice/Valiant Eyeshadow Quad, Russian Red/Spitfire Lipsticks, Secret Identity Lipglass
  • dark skin tones: Amazon Princess/Mighty Aphrodite Blush Duos, Golden Lariat Mineralize Skinfinish, Lady Justice Eyeshadow Quad, Russian Red/Spitfire Lipsticks, Athena’s Kiss Lipglass

  1. Wow. Spitfire, Marquise’d, & Heroine are mine. Spitfire may be passed on once I look at my stash. I have so many pinky purples.

  2. Davina

    Thanks Christine! This is great. I absolutely hate the packaging so I wasn’t going to buy anything, but I’m glad I’m not missing out on anything special anyway.

  3. ShannoninBC

    Thanks for all your hard work and quick posts about this line. I guess I’ll be skipping this now LOL

  4. Twinory

    Hey ! Love all of your reviews, thank you so much for the help !

  5. JennerLynner

    when you say warm undertones, do you mean pink or yellow? because mac calls pink warm, but it seems like everyone else refers to yellow as warm. i don’t want to go look at the wrong list! :)

      • Beto Kylie

        Now I’m confused…. So, if I use a NW(20) foundation from MAC, what should I look at – the warm undertone recommendation or the cool one?

        • Cool, as NW is for those with cool undertones (like pink), and NC is for those with warm undertones (like yellow). :)

          • Ashley

            That’s really weird since the MA said I’m an nw25 but I have always been told I have warm skin and any eyeshadow, blush, or lipstick made for “cool” skin tones looks terrible on me. Oh well, I guess I will just keep wearing what I’ve been wearing cause I think I look a-okay.

          • TIana J

            I always thought that being NC25 made me cool:) joke.
            Strangely purples and silvers and cool colors look better on me
            than any sign of orange/ gold/ red etc… so I think that the
            cool/ warm theory needs a bit more work adn definition from all
            brands, esp. since people also can have opposing undertones beneath their
            general skintone. Mac did their best in confuse people by labeling
            NC(c being cool I presume) the warm tones you refer to, and NW (w being warm) for the cool…:P

          • Beto Kylie

            Thanks for your reply, Christine!!! This, and the others’ comments have helped so much!!! There’s just one other thing that is clouding my mind. I’ve been told once or twice that using warm colors on cool skintones (which you have made clear to me now that it’s my skintone type :) ) will bring balance to the look. Do you think that actually works??? I’m thinking, for example, like using a warm blush over the NW foundation I wear.

        • Lens

          an MUA at the MAC Pro store gave me an explanation that totally made sense to me for their foundation designations. He said that the goal is to achieve a neutral base. If you have cool undertones (pink), you want to add some yellow to neutralize that. If you have warm undertones (yellow), you want to add some pink to neutralize that.

          NW = Needs Warm… this means you have cool undertones and you need warm to neutralize.
          NC = Needs Cool… this means you have warm undertones and you need cool to neutralize.


      • JennerLynner

        thank you!

  6. Thanks for the review! What do you do with alle the make-up you don’t use? I was just wondering because you probably have tons of make-up!

  7. This makes my wallet breath with relief. I’m only going after Might Aphrodite Blush Duo, Pink Power MSF and possibly Athena’s Kiss lipglass.

  8. ShockingBlue

    This is why I’m so glad Temptalia exists… I don’t think I’m going to be getting anything, unfortunately.

  9. Carrie

    I’ve been underwhelmed by collections before – but those are usually the small collections (like Pret a Papier) that just didn’t appeal to me. I never expected to find one this large where there is now literally nothing I want to pick up.

    Thank you for all the work you do 😀

  10. Bethy

    I’m quite surprised and happy with how much my want list has been cut down. Blushes and pink power, no more than that. This I can afford!

  11. Delfina

    Hi Christine, didn’t the collection have two nail polishes too?

    • Hi Delfina,

      I did not receive the two nail polishes. I’m really sorry about that! I’m terribly sorry that I won’t be able to have swatches up for those until maybe 2/1 or later… again I’m really, really sorry and wish I could be more helpful! :(

      • Delfina

        Hey Christine, your work is absolutely a daily drug, necessary for any makeup lover! I didn’t mean to criticize in the least. I thought they might have withdrawn them for some reason. Have a nice weekend!

      • Carrie Ann

        You don’t have to apologize. You’ve done a fabulous job.

      • AS

        Hey, If they can’t be airmailed, they can’t be airmailed! No reason for you to feel sorry or that you are disappointing anyone. I just had a vision of some of temptalia’s blog readers as sharks – they will start jumping and snapping at you if you don’t get stuff up in a microsecond. I think it is safe to say that 99 percent of us just love what you do and NEVER, EVER feel disappointed by anything you do or don’t do, under any circumstances – who cares about the shark people anyway. It’s your blog, your passion, and your business enterprise, Christine! And you are totally awesome!

  12. Sarz

    I’m so sad. I was really looking forward to this collection and now I *might* just buy reflects pearl, just cause I’ve been wanting that for a while anyway.

    Ugh. What a let-down.

  13. Trish

    I’m so underwhelmed by this collection. And this coming from someone who actually *watched* the danged TV show!

  14. Bell

    After these brilliant reviews, swatches, etc, I’m not getting anything from this collection :-( When the first pictures were released I didn’t like the packaging….and now with no products beeing real must-haves, I’m passing this one!

  15. Silvia

    Hi Christine,

    thank you so much! the “overall recommendations post” really makes for such a great overview. I will check the msfs and blushes! I agree, the collection is a bit underwhelming, but still is a lot of fun. So I don’t mind and am looking forward to get some items.

  16. Mel

    You rock for being honest, Christine. One of the main reasons I ALWAYS read your blog.

  17. Kendall

    Ugh; I was so psyched when I heard about this collection, and everything in it just seems so disappointing! Plus it just seems like another step away from MAC’s lower price point and toward those of more expensive brands. Even if you’re getting more for your money with a lot of things, that’s still something I don’t want to pay, considering that with the amount of makeup I have I will never finish anything.

  18. Sara

    Hmm. I think the only thing I am going to get is the pink power msf and one of the OP lash colours… mainly becasue I wanted to try op lash anyways. Not a super exciting collection.

  19. AnGeLwInGz

    Christine you are awesome with your skip/recommendations/dupes lists. It really shows how much effort you put into your blog. Keep up the great work!

  20. Gina

    This might be the first time I’ve ever been disappointed by a collection as a whole. Ohhh MAC, I guess everything can’t be a hit.

  21. Nlinton

    Wow…just wow. This is kind of disappointing. And I liked the packaging. I read the comic and watched the show as a kid. Oh well, I will wait for other things that will come out – spring is springing – and save my money for that. Thanks for the honest reviews!

    And maybe if someone from MAC is reading this: You don’t always hit a homerun. But maybe, just maybe, there are TOO MANY collections coming out. If there are repeated quality issues with special collections and the products don’t measure up to the permanent collection, something is wrong. MAC needs to address that.

  22. Tatum

    I’m happy to say that I will not be purchasing anything from this collection. The cheek products are pretty, but MAC’S blushes make me break out. So my wallet will be a happy camper.

  23. Lena

    I agree with you. I’m just getting the blushes and Pink Power. Thank you for being so honest. It is really helpful! :)

  24. Heli

    My thoughts exactly! I guess Mac gave all their best ideas to Disney and DC got the leftovers.

    Venomous Villains 10 – Wonder Woman 0

  25. Stephanie!

    Somehow I was not impressed with the promopics. I’m so glad you confirmed what I already thought! I might check out the Pink Power MSF, the blushes or maybe Marquise’d lipstick. But I’m pretty sure I won’t buy them.

  26. i generally love all your reviews. they’re smart, well-written and the amount of time and energy you put into them is very apparent. thanks for another great review! good job :)


    “subscribe if you love us!” (no, i don’t think i’ll ever let that one go… haha) xo

  27. Emily

    I was looking forward to this collection but I really dont see anything I want! I guess I will save some money.

  28. Angie

    Christine – Thank you for the reviews. Always great! Do you think they rushed this collection and that is why the quality is bad/repetitive? I was truly looking forward to this but now having my doubts other than all the accessories. Thanks!!!

    • I don’t think it was rushed at all – I’m sure they had plenty of people working on it, so I have no idea really why the quality was missing in some products!

  29. Siri

    The only thing I might pick up is Pink Power.. But I have to play a bit at the counter obv so I’m sure 😉 Definetly dissapointed. Great reviews as always Christine! Love these “recaps”.

  30. Lens

    Christine, you rule. Your reviews are so thorough and honest and i sincerely appreciate having a reliable resource like your site to help me with my beauty purchases. Seriously. You’re saving me money!

    nothing looks very appealing to me, but i kinda want one thing just for the packaging! maybe one of the blushes, altho god knows, i do not need any more blush. maybe i’ll wait for the nail polishes.

  31. sam

    i agree. this collection was a disappointment all around- i’m definitely skipping out on the entire thing! i think the last collections i loved that came out were to the beach & champale and that’s because there were so many cool things mixed in with it that i felt it was different from things in the permanent collection. i was expecting more out of this wonder woman collaboration, like really bright crazy colors, things that are wearable but very bold. i didn’t feel like there was much of it in this collection! i almost wish mac would only come out with a few collections a year rather than so many. i’m getting so bored with mac for that reason!

  32. Nunuiviet

    I didn’t feel like buying anything since the release of the pics of the collection, the colours, the packaging is awful! Thanks to Mac this time I could save some money hahhahahahah

  33. wonk wonk wonk this makes the 7 collection in a row that does nothing for me… so sad

  34. Adelita

    I think I’ll only put Golden Lariat & Mighty Aphrodite to my list. I don’t think the rest of this collection will suits my skin tone (NC37/40, golden-olive undertones) & some just not my cup of tea.
    Yay for the less money to spend and boo because even though I have to admit it that the packaging looks a little bit tacky & plastic-y, I heart Wonder Woman and it’s such a shame that I only pick 2 items from this Wonder Woman collection… :(

    Thanks for being honest about all of the products’ flaw in your review, Christine… :)

  35. I think they should have released more red and gold eyeshadows in this collection, comsidering that those colors show up on Wonder Woman more than blue and green. I understand that they wanted to release more wearable shades, but this collection doesn’t even feel fun. If they wanted to stay true to Wonder Woman, give us colors that she wouldn’t be afraid to wear! :)

  36. bambi415

    All I can say is wow

  37. Stéphanie

    Thanks for all your hard work! Did you review The nail lacquer?

  38. Deb

    It’s a strange feeling to be happy about passing on an entire collection, but that’s money I can put to something else.

  39. Cherokee

    Thanks Christine as always for your honest reviews. Looks like I won’t be buying as much as I thought. Probably just a lipstick and lipgloss. Bummer. Oh well, Next collection cause MAC puts one out every other day.

  40. Helen

    I think the packaging is ugly. It reminds me of Toys ‘r Us! And I usually like bright colors.

  41. Thanks for all the great pictures, vids & swatches. More importantly your thurough reviews and honesty!!

  42. Av

    Hi, just wanted to say I love your site, and how much hard work and effort you put in so artists, and consumers, can take a look at collections before hand! As a former MAC employee, and an artist myself, I can try to help clear up the confusion. NW stands for neutral-warm for people with warm undertones to their skin, meaning, pink/red undertones, hence the ‘W’ in ‘NW.’ ‘NC’ stands for neutral-cool, and is used on people with cool undertones to their skin such as blue/green undertones, hence the ‘C’ in ‘NC. Olive skinned people have more blue in their skin which is why they are classified as cool. An easy way to remember is if you think of warm, you can think of fire, and heat being red. If you think of cool, think of ice/ocean/water being blue. Many asians, and hispanics are generally cool-toned. Cool toned colors such as grayish-purples, greens, blues, ashy browns, look good on cool toned people, where as warm colors such as pinks, warm-red browns, and oranges look good on warm toned people. As always, there are exceptions. You ideally want to match foundation with the exact shade that you are, so if you are a very fair, cool-toned person, you would use a NC15 or NC20 when it comes to MAC. With concealing under eyes or blemishes however, you want to counteract the color. So as most people have dark circles with bluish undertones (cool undertone), you would then use a NW to warm it up and neutralize. And for blemishes that are red (warm) you would use a cool toned concealer (yellow based) such as a NC. I hope that clears it up! Nicole Kidman is warm, whereas Catherine Zeta Jones is cool. :)

  43. I really appreciate your overall recommendations – so helpful! I think I’ll probably just be purchasing the two blush duos and maybe Spitfire since all three are something I don’t have in my collection.

  44. Ashley Sarah

    I want so much of this collection. I don’t mind the packaging like most people do, plus to me its more about the product itself that matters. Now if only I could afford my make-up wants lol.

  45. Jennifer

    I think I’m just gonna get a lipstick and that’s it, the packaging doesn’t really do anything for me since I never take out my makeup in public either

  46. Leea

    This review was really helpful, I think without it I would have purchased something, and probably regretted it. I’m rather disappointed with this collection, I hope MAC doesn’t come out with such a get-your-hopes-up-but-then-be-sad-about-a-new-collection collection. :(

  47. Pamela M

    What a disappointment. I only want a lipstick from this collection. I like the boxes that the products came in, better than the actual packaging/product itself…thats kinda sad. I’m holding out hopes for the Lady Gaga 2 lipstick and the sheen supreme lipsticks. Thanks for the great work and honesty Christine.

  48. Laura

    Can you do a tutorial on the look you did with army of amazon green mascara and the valiant quad, i’m in love with it!

  49. Corliss

    Cristine I love your blog I refer to it all the time. Thanks honey I love you!!!

  50. I’m the one who asked for your viewpoint as a consumer towards the Wonder Woman collection! I got a semi-mention, (:

    Thank you again for your unbiased opinions.

  51. Bubbles

    Thanks Christine! This was extremely helpful!

  52. Marcela

    Thanks for your great reviews, Christine! Although I’m not thrilled about any product in particular (thank god for my wallet) I’m still going to the unveiling party at my MAC store tomorrow just for fun (and cuz the cocktails and food were great at the VV unveiling!) I might pick up just Marquise D’ lipstick or Wonder Woman lipglass.

  53. Felicia

    I actually like this packaging, it reminds me of that comic book look which I find for my would be Golden lariate msf, mighty aphrodite blush, and maybe the nuetral pink lipglass…Im excited about it!!!

  54. Felicia

    SO Christine, which product do you feel would be the one that everyone will croon over?

  55. alison

    only going to get russian red. i’ve been wanting that one for a while, and i actually kind of like the packaging… i’ll feel like a superhero when i’m pulling this out to reapply at court, haha.

  56. Yvee

    The good thing is I don’t own any mac well a couple here and there I think I think i want to check out the Valiant quad because I love greens the olive color looks amazing and so does the spinning transformation.. and your paying 10 dollars an eyeshadow which i think is a good deal, and eyeshadows for me even coastal scents and drugstore ones i’ve never had problems with especially with a painterly under. Then since my mom said i needed blushes i want to get mighty aphrodite duo and the pink power msf, then marquise d’ lipstick i love nudes but don’t have enough one for me and one for my momma she used to watch wonderwomen and she likes nudes so it’ll be a little surprise for her and after that i’m think a lipgloss, in emancipation to match marquise d’. of course i will swatch and try everything out in store fist. i will not wast money if it is not necessary :)
    thanks Christine you take the time to do all of this for us makeup addicts :)

  57. Markus Simka

    Congratulations. You are all basing your opinions on the review by one insignificant person. Which makes you sheep. What you fail to realize is that this line is probably intended for women who are die hard fans of Wonder Woman. If you aren’t a fan, of course you aren’t going to like the packaging. Not to mention that this is a review done by a woman with ONE specific skin tone. So of course some of the colors might not look quite right. I am not defending the makeup itself, but the method of reviewing. The only fair way to review makeup would be to have a group of women of varying types of skin to use the makeup. Disguise the make with generic packaging and do not inform them of the brand name. They will try the makeup and give an honest opinion without forming a bias.

    • This is an independent blog, not a corporate affair – I am only one woman and have never pretended otherwise. It is a little harsh of you to call me insignificant (or anyone, for that matter – that really seems to discount one’s value, when we all have value). Reviewing makeup in a helpful way surely does not require double blind testing and clinical trials – I personally disagree. I also think it’s in poor taste that you call others sheep – you again insult without knowing people.

    • Kiren Jhass

      Wow how downright rude can you be its just to showcase how the products look Christine never has tried make out that the products will suit everyone its just a way of seeing the products before you buy, dont need to be so darn right rude.

  58. marcela

    i went to the unveiling party at my MAC tonight… and i was totally underwhelmed by the products. Thank god for my wallet! Bought nothing from the collection but went away with a new blush (Peachtwist) and Pro palette shadow pan (Stars N Rockets). Also got some tasty cupcakes and cocktails for free so it wasn’t a total waste!

  59. daisy

    i am confused here: it this collection already on the market?

  60. Annie

    hey christine…..
    love the review!
    i thought i was a medium skin-tone person…..but i am not as fair as you are…..and my skin-tone isn’t too dark as well….i am an NC-43 which is not as dark and not as light as well….i then figured out that i was a medium dark kinda skin-tone with a neutral undertone…..i checked your overall review and recommendations blog post for this collection and you haven’t given any recommendations for my skin colour……i would really like to know what you would recommend for my skin type….

  61. Thanks for the review! What do you do with alle the make-up you don’t use? I was just wondering because you probably have tons of make-up!

  62. anh

    hi christine!
    do you think i could layer golden lariat under mighty aphrodite? im tan/with a yellow undertone. nc45-ish but keep in mind i do not wear any sort of face powder or wear any foundation.

  63. I managed to score some at a PRO shop yesterday. I bought Victorious, which is a much more subtle purple than I expected, and Heroine, which looks nice and very gold on me, despite my NC10 skin. I’m tempted to go back and get Wonder Woman gloss.

  64. Yvee

    I have a really important question, do they restock online sold out items i’m scarred out of no where my mac counter will be out of something :(

    (even though i’ll be going to the mall as soon as it opens on the 10th)

  65. Livia

    Hi Christine!
    Thanks so much for your reviews and recommendations, it was very helpful!
    I just wanted to know if the two brush sets were worth buying, because I was going to buy some of the brushes anyway. Are they worth buying or should I just buy the brushes separately?
    Thank you so much!

  66. It seems like MAC is getting a bit carried away w/ focusing too much on packaging and not as much as what’s INSIDE of the package lol. I’d rather them keep it simple, and get back to their creative roots!

  67. Jodie

    I cannot decide if i want the Athena’s Kiss/Emancipation Lipglass or to just skip the collection all toghether. What do people think? Hmmm..

  68. Paula

    Thank you. Your comments were extremely helpful for me.I’ll hold my consumerism.

  69. Adee

    I have to say, i was excited about this collection from the postings you had put up here. When I saw it in person, it is amazing! The packaging is absolutely fabulous! I would recommend it to anyone who is a Mac fan as well as a wonder woman fan. Thanks for staying true to the original wonder woman, MAC!

  70. Sunnygfunk

    Wow just wanted today thank you Christine. Your reviews help me buy what looks good and helps me save money on what doesn’t. I used to go craZy at mac during launches such as this and buy things that to this day I have never worn. I picked up mighty Aphrodite and pink power and they are both beautiful. I don’t feel guilty at all :) thanks

  71. Betsy

    I just received my 3 Wonder Woman items yesterday…Emancipation Lip Glass, Amazon Princess blush, and Satin Spitfire lipstick. I for one LOVE the packaging. It bring us back to a time when cartoons and heroins were an important part of life. Plus with the bright red/blue, my lipstick and blush will not be lost in the sea of black compacts in my drawer. The supersize lipglass – OMG I LOVE it, the consistency, the large sponge applicator, the color – I am going out this afternoon to buy another one cuz I never want to be without itj!! Maybe I’ll try the colored mascara too….

    • katie

      i know i’m in the minority, but i too loved this collection!!! i found out about it late and had to hunt around for the last pieces left, but i got wonder woman shade lipglass with the gigantic glamazon applicator. i carry it in my purse and show it to everyone. it makes me feel powerful and strong. i so wanted wonderwoman russian red, but it’s sold out. i started wearing make-up for my 33rd birthday. this website is awesome! the mac database is amazing. helps weed out counterfeit products!! great work! a combination of passion, intelligence and hard work.

    I actually liked the collection. The only thing I disliked was the nail polishes, I’d never wear those colors. I bought golden lariat, the black mascara, the black eye liner, the pearl glitter the green eye shadows, and the blue makeupbag. I can never remember the actual names, lol. My little sisters even loved it. They’re 11 and 13, so I bought them each a nail polish (they like bright/odd colors on their nails). So all in all, I liked the make up and the packaging. My favorite collection they ever had though, was hello kitty. I wish that was permanant, I’ve ran out of all the hello kitty items I’d bought, and I miss them! And all the hk makeup they sell online is fake..fake mac makeup..insane!

    Hi Christine! Love your blog, and love you on youtube! You are always so informative! Thanks for all your hard work, and all your GREAT tips! I love the Wonderwoam Collection, and I bought a couple back-ups (Pink Power, Russian Red, and Athena’s kisses). How long do you think they will be good for???
