MAC Wonder Woman: Blush and Mineralize Skinfinish Comparisons & Dupes


Wonder Woman Comparison “Session”

MAC Wonder Woman: Blush and Mineralize Skinfinish Comparisons & Dupes

Here are comparisons for the blushes and mineralize skinfinishes! If I did not compare something, the most likely reason is because I do not own it.

Blush Duos

  • AMAZON PRINCESS (magenta side) is a lighter version of Her Blooming Cheek, while Band of Roses is less blue-based.
  • AMAZON PRINCESS (redder side) is closest to New Vibe, which is slightly less intense. Band of Roses is a darker red with no coral. NARS Sin doesn’t compare.
  • MIGHTY APHRODITE (pink coral side) is similar to Guerlain Blush G (pink side, not mixed) and NARS Deep Throat, which is a little less pink. Ripe Peach is more orange-based (this used equal parts of it; if you used the darker half, then it would be more similar). Benefit Bella Bamba is pinker, while Bite of an Apple is redder and darker (nothing alike).
  • MIGHTY APHRODITE (red coral side) is pinker than Bite of an Apple.

Mineralize Skinfinishes

  • GOLDEN LARIAT (highlighting side) did not compare to any other highlighter I owned, because it has a very strong yellow base. It’s kindof like using Goldmine eyeshadow as a highlighter. NARS Albatross, for example, goes on as a white gold.
  • GOLDEN LARIAT (bronzing side) is darker and less golden than both Comfort and Sunny by Nature. Gold Deposit is bronzy in comparison. A Little Bit of Sunshine is cooler and darker. Cheeky Bronze is similar in color but the gold shimmer makes it appear lighter.
  • GOLDEN LARIAT (blushing side)is a touch darker than A Little Bit of Sunshine.
  • PINK POWER (highlighting side) is paler than both Perfect Topping and Happy Together, which appear more beige.
  • PINK POWER (bronzing side) is less golden than both Comfort and Sunny by Nature.
  • PINK POWER (blushing side) has less pink than both Springsheen and NARS Super Orgasm.

MAC Wonder Woman: Lipstick & Lipglass Comparisons & Dupes


Wonder Woman Comparison “Session”

MAC Wonder Woman: Lipstick & Lipglass Comparisons & Dupes

Here are comparisons for the lipglasses and lipsticks! If I did not compare something, the most likely reason is because I do not own it.

Lipglasses

  • ATHENA’S KISS is most comparable to Magnetique, which is just a bit darker. Funtabulous is sheerer and less intense, while True Babe is brighter, lighter, and bluer-based. Fierce & Fabulous is too pink, while Hot House is significantly darker and Electric Fuchsia is purpler.
  • EMANCIPATION is a little lighter than Bare Necessities, while Devilishly Stylish is a touch less pink but otherwise very similar. Feeling Dreamy is a paler variation, and Young Spark is darker.
  • SECRET IDENTITY is rustier than Crescent, and it is much lighter than Liqueur. Oh Baby is too bronzy, while Kumquat is similar in feel but obviously lighter.
  • WONDER WOMAN is more of a true red than Wicked Ways, which is bluer-based. Cult of cherry is a deeper red with finer shimmer. Russian Red is similar in color, but more opaque and has no shimmer. I think Venetian should be closer, but I do not own it.

Lipsticks

  • HEROINE is unlike anything I own, though I think it may compare to Strength (which I do not own). Bronze Shimmer is too coppery, Honeymoon is so light and pale in comparison, and Gel is really nothing alike.
  • MARQUISE D’ is closest to Hug Me, which is a little darker, and Sandy B, which is a little pinker. Angel is far too pink, while Innocence Beware and Hue are paler and pinker.
  • SPITFIRE is darker and less magenta than Petals & Peacocks, Gladiola, and Madly Magenta. Pomposity has a brighter frost with more fuchsia. Style Curve is sheerer and purpler.
