OMG I love the colours in this collection…. though I can’t truly justify reapplying a lipstick that looks like that and then justify buying a couple backups lmao I guess I have to wait till they repromote some of these in more classic-looking packaging. Though the MSF sounds too good to pass up. Just like VV, I’ll see the product in person and decide.

Agree. This is by far the ugliest packaging for MAC ever! Such a shame they didn’t just changed the black in the usual packaging into red or something if they would’ve gone for the superwoman theme..

The packaging reminds me of a little girl’s “play” make up. The kind that had scented, peel-Off polish, flavoured gloss and chalky shadows and blush. Not impressed at all.

I can’t believe how many people are complaining about the packaging…it’s Wonder Woman…the packaging screams classic Wonder Woman. I love it…I don’t think it’s cheap looking at all, it looks like it should look:)

LOL. I know april! I really like the packaging. in person it’ll probably look better. i think if you dont like the packaging you dont have to buy it?? buy it for the product is what i mean

ok…. whatever to all the haters!!!!!! m.a.c truly stands up to there name. the packaging stands up to the name,its wonder women…a comic… i guess some people just doesnt get it. but to those few it will always be a million more who will. this launch is a definetly a must have.

I was honestly starting to wonder if I was the only one who loves this collection!!! I haven’t too thrilled with them lately. The “scottish look” in last season wasn’t doing it for me.

I agree with April! The packaging is classic Wonder Woman. Makeup is supposed to be fun. Life is too serious to be criticizing MAC for bringing out another creative collection. If you want ahh “more mature” packaging, there are alot of other lines to chose from. As for me, I can’t wait for this collection to come out!

I’m with you, April. I absolutely love this packaging. As a little girl who grew up in the late 70’s, I was ALL ABOUT Wonder Woman. Even if actual makeup colors were awful and I would still be excited about this.

Glad you said that April! First of all, Wonder Woman is a COMIC BOOK character. The bright colors and graphics pay homage to that! I LOVE this packaging. Most special edition products can’t take advantage of color and this one could and DID. I’m pumped to see it in person!

Exactly April, it is bright and bold but it’s based on the comic book character and I think it matches it perfecty! I will be buying a few things from this collection!

I love it too – yes it looks childish and toylike – but seriously, where do you normally find wonderwoman? in toyshops!!!
Love it love it love it…if it didn’t look comicbook classic wonderwoman, I would have been disappointment – now…I want a makeup bag and MSF and eye palette (just to have the palette!)

Right? It’s a COMIC book character …It’s dead on for a comic, this isn’t a novel people. It’s supposed to remind you of your childhood. I had brothers so I know all about comic books and this collection captures that perfectly!!!! Come on ladies use a little imagination with this one and venture outside the box. 😀
Have fun with it!

I agree with all of you…the packaging is very comic book-like and that is perfect! As a child of the 70’s Wonder Woman was my hero and I am loving the packaging as well as the products and can’t wait to haul this collection. It’s comic perfection. So, all those who don’t like it-there’s more for me!

I just wish it would have had graphics instead of just wording. I was hoping for graphics of Wonder Woman through the years. The lettering IS comic book, I just wish they would have done more than that, like they did with Villians. That’s all. 🙁

I agree Sherry they should of added some sort of image of her on the packaging she is beautiful and her face and tiara are very recognizable to all.I’m a huge WW fan i collect everthing i see of her .MAC thank you for another amazing line!

I agree! If you don’t like the packaging, then don’t buy any pieces of the collection! No one is holding a gun to anyone’s head, forcing them to buy Mac’s Wonder Woman Collection! More to go around for the true Mac Addicts and collectors!

I have to second (or fourth?) April’s comment. A comic book collection lends itself to this packaging. I don’t mind it at all.

Plus, I’m so excited to see Marquise d’ again, it’s my favorite nude! I’m loving the look of the Lady Justice palette too.

Agreed as well with April. The palettes even remind me of a lunch box I had as a kid. It supposed to look like that crazy people! If you can’t understand it or don’t “get it” then don’t buy it. That simple.

I agree April, its meant to be vivid and comic book looking.I have seen the packaging in person and I can tell you its really fun. Its 1940’s pop and I think it is great. Let the haters hate, the colors are awesome.

I agree April. I grew up with the WW tv show and I love this packaging. It remeinds me of the old comic and the 70’s tv show. I love it. I think it’s great. It goes perfectly with the theme.

Im soooo dissapointed with mac its spring they should be coming out with cute spring colors I hate The theme all together seriously comic book theme srry but the pacaging is extremely ugly im not gonna get anything from this collection complete wasste of money !!!!!!! worst collection mac ever came out with

Maybe for you, but obviously other people are excited about this. plus mac just came out with a light sping type collection, i think we will live. mac is tying to add some fun to their products! If you don’t like it i’m sure the chanel counter has room for you. 😉

They’re not Disney villains- Wonder Woman is the most popular comic book heroine from DC Comics! She’s been around for years! Just sayin’.

ITA!! The packaging looks horrible. I know people have complained in the past about the Hello Kitty and VV packaging looking juvenile, but this is the worst of the bunch by far! They look like cheap party favors you’d stick in some kid’s birthday party favor bag.

I actually love the packaging. It reminds me of childhood. I love wonder woman, I love superheroes, I love comic books. It makes me think that make up isnt all about being mature and sophisticated, that its okay to be fun and playful and colorful and bold. Wonder Woman is all about standing out and I think pulling a tube of this lipstick out of my bag will attract a lot more attention than the conventional matte black tube. I think the packaging is kind of….kick ass, much like the super hero it’s designed to emulate.

I totally agree, I will not buy anything from this collection that I can not depot, the packaging is tacky, cheap and very immature for any adult to use

Yeah, they should have at *least* made all the yellow brick letters gold instead (on the logo), to match the inside of the lipstick. The color combo says McDonald’s to me rather than MAC. I’ll be skipping this collection!

I want to like that packaging but I just don’t. No. No. No.
It looks so cheap and like kindergarden. The quality has to be really amazing or else I’ll be skipping this collection.

Thank you a lot to ALL of you who’s NOT liking this collection!

Will increase my chance to get all the items I want!

THANK YOU <3 xxxx mega kiss

This packaging is MEANT to be exaggerated and fun. And also, the one thing you can’t tell from the pictures is that these products are going to be super-sized compared to regular MAC products. Those are not regular sized lipglasses you’re looking at…they’r BIG. Again, supposed to be playful, fun!

These are exactly as they should look- pop art ! It’s like having a Lichtenstein collection. These symbols and colors are perfectly representative of the comic icon. If you would be embarrassed to pull this lipstick out of your purse umm perhaps you shouldn’t purchase it? I had the underoos as a kid and will proudly continue to rock the Super Heroine’s adorable packaging proudly.

I’d be willing to bet that the majority of individuals complaining about the packaging know absolutely nothing about comics WW or anything of the like.

I can’t help but get frustrated when people say that this packaging looks cheap.. I feel like the vision is getting lost, its a comic! I don’t think it’s supposed to be extra luxurious. I feel that the bright colors are supposed to convey the extra “cheese”. With that being said, I can’t WAIT for this collection.

The point of the packaging is to look like the comic book. duh. not all high end and super expensive looking. and its wonder women for godsakes. what else do you expect?

I totally agree! I’ve never had a thing for Wonder Woman, so I won’t be out buying this stuff. Also I can’t believe they raised their prices again!!

I did see some real life photos and swatches of this collection (I posted them on my blog), and while it doesn’t look as tacky as they do in the press photos, they’re still not good enough for me to put down $23.50+tax on a lipglass.

i was just reading your formspring and someone asked you if you had info on this collection and u said u post things as u have it, and i thought it was funny bc i came to ur site and saw it

Yes, I can only post when I have information sent to me or if a reputable website posts information (such as both MSN Australia and Cosme), because if it is too preliminary, it spreads like wildfire and it loses that “this is just preliminary” warning that I give and people start to take it as 100% accurate. So, I must wait.

I’m actually really excited about this collection still, lol not everybody will e happy regardless of what it looks like. I love wonderwoman and I love Mac so….more for me! Lol but packaging aside (oh an I hope Mac isn’t pushing these for more $ bc of their jumbo size) does anyone know if the brushes that come out with these collections are just short handled, or if they’re usually mass produced like the Christmas stuff?

Although some (not all) of the packaging is growing on me it i get the blushes I’ll be inclined to depot them from the Red Yoyo compact.

I think this is the first time see that style of compact from MAC. Not the colour but the exposed lip part.

Its funny because I feel the opposite I am quite interested in a couple literally 1 or 2 products but the packaging is totally turning me off I don’t want to have to look at them in my collection lol

I love comics and think it really looks fun and fitting with a comic series, but I can definitely see how people would be turned off by it, especially if you enjoy elegant packaging.

I like both. Guerlain compacts are gorgeous, but I also adored the VV collection’s look.

IA. I think people are forgetting that Wonder Woman is a comic book character and I honestly thing the packaging matches that feel. I really want the compact and I’m happy Marquise’d is coming back out.

I hate that packaging! I can’t imagine that many people over 18 will want to buy from this collection simply because of the theme. It seems silly to me.

I’m 32 and I love the packaging! But then again, I grew up reading comics and I like superhero stuff in general.

I think the packaging fits the Wonder Woman theme perfectly; after all, the theme of this collection is half the point isn’t it? Wonder Woman is bold and kitchy and fun, and so is her makeup!

I’m with you Amarie!! I’m 32 as well and Wonder Woman is my idol!! I grew up watching Linda Carter on the tv and all I wanted to be was Wonder Woman when I got older. I am buying everything in this collection!! I want it all!! SO EXCITED!!!!!!!

I agree. I’ve only brought maybe three MAC items in my life, but when I saw this, I thought “two of everything!” I think you have to be a 70’s/80’s comic kid to get this collection. I do not see “cheap” at all, I see memories of WW underoos

I agree. I’ve only brought maybe three MAC items in my life, but when I saw this, I thought “two of everything!” I think you have to be a 70’s/80’s comic kid to get this collection. I do not see “cheap” at all, I see memories of WW underoos all glammed up!

I agree…I am 37 and this is SO Wonder Woman. If the colors look good then I’ll get something. I can care less about packaging. I mean, really, do you REALLY care what you are “seen” putting on. SMH. So silly. But perhaps that is just the confidence in me talking.

Well I’m 35 and simply cannot wait! I too love Wonder Woman and rmbr as a child me & my cuzns used to watch the show w/ Linda Carter (gorgeous and Latina shoot!) and then we would run outside & pretend to be her! I luv the packaging & would proudly display it, though I dnt carry around blushes & such but anyhow maybe jst maybe this line is geared at fans of Wonder Woman gasp!

Amazing collection!! I can’t wait for this collection! It reminds me the venomous villains collection because the packaging was really cool too =)

I love the packaging because it looks cheap! In my mind Wonder Woman is supposed to be kitschy and fun. The blush duo and the quads are calling me…

I agree! in any other setting this packaging would be tacky and ugly, but i really think it fits the KITSCHY (perfect word for it) and comic-book feel of the collection. it looks fun.

I’ll wait for swatches, but I would totally buy one of those quads for the packaging, as long as the product quality is there. The packaging is perfect for what it is!

I’m not liking the packaging. It reminds me of a toy, and if I went out in public with the one of those products, and reapplied, i’d be kind of embarassed.

Rather a steep idea, but I was thinking… what if they put a holographic comic-strip on everything? Or a WW action sequence? Call me kiddish but I would love to turn the lid of my lipglass and see a comic strip take place in front of my eyes 🙂

Wow that is a lot of product. I think some of it is cute. Like the mascara packaging and lipstick. I’m interested to read what you think of the quality though 🙂

I am not a fan of the packaging. I hate special packaging cuz I can’t use my discount!!!!!

I will be interested to see how dupable the eyeshadows are. 🙂

While a couple of the products sound nice (Mighty Aphrodite blush duo and Golden Lariat MSF), the packaging is a real turn-off. Don’t get me wrong, I do like ‘different’ packaging in LE items but this is just too tacky. I’d be embarassed to use these in public. I’m going to skip this.

How often would you apply blush or MSF in public anyway? The only things I can imagine would be used in public are the lipsticks/lipglosses and of course the mirror

Good point, Dawn! Thank you :o) See, the packaging turned me off so much that it didn’t occur to me that the products I liked can actually easily be ‘hidden’ in the depths of my makeup drawer. Hehe…I might purchase afterall!

I understand your concern but I (personally) would whip those babies out just like I do my Wonder Woman notebook and pencil bag. But I’m a fan 🙂 I love the packaging but I can see how a lot of people wouldn’t!

I can understand how others can see that the packaging looks cheap…but then again the whole point is that it is a MAC Wonder Woman Collection. It has the original style of the comic, and I think a lot of people will buy it for that reason.

there are a lot of people tripping over the packaging. it’s a comic book hero collection, what do you expect? i can’t help but think that it’s older women who have such insecurities whipping out their makeup in public…

I’m in my mid twenties and I generally don’t whip out my makeup in public but hey, I still don’t like the packaging. It’s personal preference so there’s no need to make insulting generalizations like that; if you like it, you like it, if not, not. That’s fine, isn’t it?

Yeah I agree with Melissa and others, it was kind of ageist. Assuming that it’s only old people who “overreact.” I’m 21 and I would’ve preferred a more creative spin on the packaging – like the “comic strip” idea that someone wrote early on in the comments. But it’s just bright flashy colours from her clothes and nothing more to it. Though if Nintendo made a collection with MAC, I’d be all over EVERYTHING who gives a **** what the packaging looks like and what colors I’m buying. lmao But to each their own, there’s no need to generalize like that.

I was watching a documentary about makeup & when it was 1st en vogue in the US (flapper era), it was customary for women to apply makeup in public. The manufacturers put a lot into the pkging for that reason up until the 30s. Later on, it was considered gauche for women to apply makeup in public. One politely excused herself to “powder her nose”. LOL Generally grooming in public is considered rude by many. I’m not stuffy though. I have reapplied l/s & l/g in a restaurant. Interesting.

I was the first to say it looked ugly and I’m in my early 20s. I think that the “cheap kitschy comic” look could have been done correctly but I thought they missed the mark on it! It has nothing to do with insecurities…I guess a good example is when they come out with a movie on a comic book hero you loved as a child and then when you see the movie you feel disappointed creative liberties the director took!

it’s not insecurities that makes us not like it – for instance in my case, I like packaging that looks elegant, ladylike and pretty – even if no one else sees it, that’s just the style I like. and I don’t mind paying a bit more for beautiful packaging. in this case, the packaging is so bad, I could never buy it, even if no one else would see it. I’d simply rather buy some other product that has packaging I do like.

I’m 22 and I often do my makeup in public on a daily basis- mascara on the train, lipgloss/lipstick any time I feel like it, powder touch up with a brush. Sometimes, I even do my entire face on the plane or on the train when I’m travelling (yes, foundation, concealer, eyeshadow, contouring etc, you name it) and I don’t care if people are watching me. In fact, I *know* people are watching me because they are intrigued. Yes, it’s a comic book theme, but it is comic book inspired, not products right out of the comic books themselves. Most people are drawn to MAC because of their chic packaging (I know it was a major factor for me at the beginning, and so is it for some of my friends who are the plainest of Janes around- and yet they have commented on how cool, hip and sleek MAC stuff looks, so much so that they feel like buying something). That is why many of us are thinking that MAC can do better than this.

I totally agree with you, don’t care what people say about what my makeup look like. Are people ashamed of pulling off a lipstick from a drugstore brand in front of people? NO. It is just makeup! And in fact, some people like it. The other day, i was retouching my lipstick in a Sears (where i work) and a little girl told her mom “oh mommy look at this girl, she has 101 dalmatiens lipstick!” she was soooo cute 🙂

T___T venomous villains’ packaging was really cute indeed… I’m so sad I didn’t find what I wanted in store T___T but I don’t like wonder woman collection XD

Agreed. I totally understand if the packaging just isn’t somebody’s thing, but I don’t get the embarrassment factor. What, do people think everyone around them is going to go “Heavens! Did you *see* that woman’s blush compact! How tasteless! We certainly shan’t be inviting *her* for tea and cucumber sandwiches!” It mystifies me.

IMO,I actually think it’s probably the younger generation who wouldn’t want to whip this out in public. Only because they are to young to associate with the Wonder Woman theme, so they don’t understand the comic book kitsch that MAC is employing here. If you can’t relate to it then it probably would look tacky. ( I didn’t relate to Hello Kitty all that much b/c I didn’t grow up with it). I’m 37 so I like it b/c it does remind me of WW and it does represent the comic book theme. Also, at 37 I don’t particularly give a darn what people think when I pull out my makeup! One of the benefits of getting older 😉 So I say if you can relate to it then have fun with it, if you can’t then hopefully another collection will appeal to you more.

Tacky packaging but thats expected. I just really hate red. Anyway, im definitely into the blushes and MSFs. The colored mascaras sound interesting, especially green. Will consider an eyeshadow quad, and maybe a lipstick or lipgloss if I like the color enough. I think its a really cute collection, especially for comic fans.

I can’t wait to see what you think of this collection once you get your hands on it. I’m definitely interested in Marquise d’, Emancipation and Pink Power. I can’t wait to see how some of the LE eyeshadows swatch.

I’m actually more interested in this then I thought I’d be. I saw a couple of pics over on Musings of a Muse a few days ago and thought it looked tacky with dull colours. But reading this quite a lot is appealing to me.

Is the chunky pen the Penultimate liner?

This is hideous. First, I dislike Wonder Woman and comic books, so it’s of zero interest to me. Second, the colors are awful, as in packaging, it looks like dollar store play makeup. I would cringe every time I opened my makeup drawer and saw sprinklings of yellow and red, with my sleek black. And I am beyond disappointed that they did a long compact with mirror for Wonder Woman. I had really hoped they would do something, oh, I don’t know, CUTE. FAIL.

I love the packaging 😀 I don’t really get the complaints that it’s childish and cartoony… it’s a collection based on a *comic book character*! Of course it’s childish and cartoony! I really like the super bright, comic book-y look. There are some really fun colors in there, too. As always, wish there weren’t so many repromotes/permanent colors, but ah well. Definitely going to pick up one of the colored mascaras and the lighter blush duo, at least!

I agree. It’s meant to have a retro feel to it and the packaging is a reflection of the color scheme and design of the wonder woman period.

omg i am so disgusted. even though i may be intersted in a few products, i wouldn’t be caught dead taking them out in public. what a dissapointment

i’m so sick of all these character themed collections. especially the packaging, i don’t want a makeup collection full of makeup with disney characters and super heroes printed all over them. if i did, i’d shop at claire’s.

I am Not a fan of much anything Disney..ugh..on the villians collection. I do like some little mermaid but wouldnt want her plastered all over my makeup…lol..I loved the felines collection, with Docile lipglass being my 2nd all time fav next to Elle Lipglass. Also they had great liners in the feline’s collection. As far a Wonder woman..I will probably pick up 3 of the blushes, lipglass, and (maybe) and msf..I love her but didnt grow up with only an old 25year old..I did dress up as her for Halloween 2010 and I loved the costume she wore!!!!

Ill be bringing home a few pieces from this collection for sure. Just got back into MAC and this is my first collection since getting back to MAC

I had high hopes for this. The packaging is growing on me – like the nail polish bottles are kind of cute. I don’t think it is tacky or anything, I am just underwhelmed. Maybe I will get the makeup bag and a mirror because those are pretty cute.

Oh MAC….sigh…

Mac really could’ve done something fresh and exciting with the packaging. Unfortunately it’s all the same pitiful logo (on every single item). I could’ve gotten a better decal at Toys-R-Us. I hope the packaging is metal because it looks like cheap packaging from the photos. Sadly, I’m no longer excited about this collection anymore.

I’m been drooling over the MFS Pink Power, and the Blush Duos Mighty Aphordite and Amazon Princess since this morning. I hope there more pigmented the the Blush Ombre counter parts

I think I will be passing on this. One of the quads sounds okay, but every time I see a MAC LE Quad, the pigmentation is not so good.

I saw some obscure video on youtube, and the lipglass packaging and penultimate packaging were huge and awkward.

I am sooooo excited for this! People need to calm down about the packaging because Wonder Woman is a SUPERHERO so the packaging would be comic book themed especially since MAC teamed up with DC COMICS for this collection. I grew up reading comics and watching the cartoons of her so this collection is like a childhood dream come true. I cannot wait for it to come out!

My sentiments exactly! I’m a retro, kitschy kind of gal, so this collection is right up my alley. Not only will I whip these products out in public, but I will do so while wearing my Wonder Woman t-shirt. 😛

I mean, seriously? Would these same “ladies” (who are calling the packaging “horrendous”, “tacky”, “cheap-looking” and “embarrassing”) ALSO say these terribly judgmental (and snobbish!) things to someone’s face (who just happened to be enjoying this collection-and in PUBLIC mind you!) or would they just say it on the internet?

They probably wouldn’t say it to your face, but they won’t invite you to the next annual meeting of the Ladies’ Extremely Dull Makeup Packaging Society, either 😉

‘Ladies Extremely Dull Makeup Packaging Society’, OMG I love it! You read my mind! The fact is that if you are classy, sophisticated or ladylike it has nothing to do with what makeup you ‘whip out in public’ just as much as it has nothing to do with whether you wear jeans or a Chanel suit. It does have something to do with manners, confidence and poise;) A sleek, black compact in someone’s hands doesn’t change that. Believe me, I will still pull off classy at the same time I whip out my WW lipstick, you can be sure of that!

my thoughts exactly, this collection is amazing and the packaging is just right, I can’t understand why some people find it cheap or tacky or say the colors are not original, come on!!! these are the colors of Wonder Woman, what other colors were they expecting?

alright I’m biting…the green quad sounds nice…shame you don’t have pics of that one…and the blush duos too…and the MSFs…God I need to shut this collection out of my head now!

any idea of that those brushes might be?

I kinda like the packaging! yeah its kinda childish but its based on a comic!! Its appropriate. And its look like there’s more effort gone into it, VV just looked like they’d slapped a photo onto the side of an ordinary container. and forgotten to add the matt finish.

The coral blush and the msfs look very pretty but the packaging is horrible yucky and cheap :(. I would prefer the regular MAC packaging over something like this. Thanks Cristine!

I think one of the best things about MAC is that they have something to appeal to everybody. I’ve never been into Wonder Woman but I think some of the products look great and the packaging, while maybe not my cup of tea, is EXACTLY what you’d expect for this collection! Don’t complain if you don’t like it…just don’t buy it! 😛

i saw this earlier today and was half hoping it wasnt authentic…but it is. im not shocked b/c of how venemous villians looked. i wish they would have put more effort into the bags for the brush sets and stuff. that looks the cheapest and costume-y. marine ultra will probably be the only thing i pick up from this launch.

OMG..Im freaking out, so excited. LOL. I kinda hate to admit it but I kinda don’t really like the packaging…Was definately more excited reading product descriptions that looking at actual photos. We will see. Yay for new MSF’s.

hi christine i know this is off topic but on macs website for mickey contractor it says theyre coming soon with some of the sold out items? ive never seen that before on macs website are they restocking it?

The penultimate liner is enormous lol. Can’t quite imagine using it. The lipglasses, too, are somewhat ‘oversized’ and as such probably considerably more expensive than normal (not to mention the big applicator).

Can’t wait to see swatches of the eyeshadows and lip colours. If I didn’t already have Russian Red, I would definitely have bought that one, though (assuming the lipsticks are regular sized).

I was actually hoping for better packaging, less on the retro comic book style. Especially since Wonder Woman’s costume was redesigned into a more mature, sophisticated look (much less skimpy than her original costume) back in June. I was hoping that the packaging would reflect that.

Disappointed, but will probably pick up a couple of items; I really like the colors of products.

What I’m afraid of is that people who love comics will skip this collection because of the outdated packaging, and DC will be all like “see, women hate comics” and stop doing cool collaborations like this. sigh

I think that a lot of people will be skipping this because of the packaging, it reminds me a lot of the Venomous Villains packaging, although I will admit that this is just slightly better.

The problem with the packaging is that it is so very retro; it doesn’t reflect the current look of comics today. I’m not so sure that DC will look at this and say that women don’t like comics, comic companies have always been somewhat aware of their female fanbases; but it will probably stop them from doing another collaboration with MAC or any other cosmetic company. It might also stop other comic companies from doing a similar collaboration. (I really like the idea of a X-men heroine collection.)

I’m more disappointed that they’ve seen fit to “redesign” Wonder Woman, just as they seem to do with everything. Lynda Carter IS Wonder Woman to most people, and as an over-40 myself I remember watching her on TV. There’s no way I’m even going to bother watching anything that has the new WW image, as it will have ruined it for me.

As such, I love the packaging for this collection, with maybe the exception of the marker pen eyeliner.

I like the look of the coloured mascaras and the purple quad but I like my collection all slick and black so I don’t think I will anything from the wonder woman collection

I rarely let the packaging of a product dissuade me from purchasing it, but this packaging is actually so horrible that I doubt I’ll be purchasing much (if anything) from this collection. At most I see myself purchasing a quad, since I usually pack those away and they’re all different colours anyway.

The packaging is Horrendous….I expected better from MAC…I kind of dig the pink eyeshadow pallette as I love me a good pink but everything else is a pass…

I thought this collection was gonna be awesome looking with the packaging… WHAT HAPPENED MAC!? It’s so tacky and child-looking like everyone else is saying.

Big Disappointment. =(

Yeah. I wish it had cool shiny metallic to it like in the inside of the lipsticks (the part with the big star on it)… That would help the packaging a ton. Make it more chic & fun at the same time. =)

Big dislike for the packaging but some colors look amazing… So happy that it will be released internationally!!!
Want the quads, 2 lipsticks, one msf and the green and purple mascaras!

I think the packaging could be better if there was some variance in it, but overall, I really like the looks of this. But I like bright colours, especially primary colours. Think I’ll want an eyeshadow quad, a mascara and perhaps an msf.

Well most of the collection is a pass on my behalf because I wouldn’t know how to work the colours of the products. But seriously! This packaging is cute! A lot of people have been saying that they were hoping for a cool limited edition special packaging, and look what they got! I will be the first one to admit that I don’t exactly love blue, red and yellow together, but this is Wonder Woman! What did you expect them to do? Slap on a sticker like they did with the Venomous Villains collection? I bet a lot of people would have been more disappointed with that. 🙂 I’m definitely picking something up from this collection, it’s too cool to pass up!

BTW Christine, are the colours of the Valiant Eyeshadow Quad limited edition or permanent?

I still would have loved the just seen the double W on these in embedded gold but I have to agree that colours are perfect for this colection.

I like the lipstick packaging but I’m trying to keep to my lipstick no-buy this year and non of the shades tempt me.

Stuck inside during a New England snowstorm and DH can’t get a flight home from FL but Temptalia made my day! The packaging is superb! Less than a month away! The wish list will be a long one!

This collection looks amazing. The packaging may seem a little tacky but I really don’t care, so long as the actual product is good. Can’t wait for your reviews on these Christine.

Eh – I’m not really excited by this, disappointingly. The Valiant quad sounds very nice, and I might grab another backup of Marquise D’ as it’s gorgeous, but apart from that…I”m not feeling it. I guess I’ll wait for swatches though.

I can’t decide if I hate the packaging because it’s undeniably tacky, or if I kinda like it in a kitsch way! Leaning towards the former.

Wonder Woman was before my time (70s and I was born in 85) and I don’t recall ever watching the animated series as a kid, but this looks like a really fun collection! I love how the package design sticks true to Wonder Woman (which would otherwise just be really tacky). I’m really curious about the colored mascaras and the blush duos.

eeeewwwwwww what are thoes minralised skinfinishes !!!! i prefer the clossic ones ill get them at a CCO but now way paying full prive, packaging is CHEAP, the only think im interested in is the blush duo :/ sorry mac yet again a dissapointment 🙁

Wow, suprisingly, there’s only a few things that interest me—Mighty Aphrodite blush duo, Golden Lariat MSF and two of the colored mascaras….everything else is a pass for me. Saving for SURF BABY in May….

Bahaha I was scared that this collection was gonna be like the Disney one (sold out two minutes after the launching !!) And now I read all of these comments like ‘ooh I dont like the packaging’ ‘ooh Id be ashamed to use a lipstick out in public’ ‘ooh Im buing anything’ !! Cheers !!

Lol as much as everyone is saying that they hate it I still expect it to sell out like the disney collection. Personally I’m loving it. So I will be haunting the site when the release date comes just in case : )

I think the packaging shows how bold and iconic wonder woman is. It may just be a social commentary on strong, bold, fearless women, and that’s why it’s so intense.

Mac ALWAYS makes good quality makeup.
Don’t fret, I think this should be a good product–packaging and all.

why does everyone always complain about the packaging? Everyone said the Venomous Villains packaging was not really enough and this is too tacky? It’s wonder woman, of course it’s going to look very cartoon-ish. I think MAC did a good job with this. I’m excited!

I agree!! I think is fun!! I grew up on Wonder Woman, and any girl who did should love to be able to whip out a Wonder Woman compact from the purse!! LOL!!! I think MAC did a great job! When you do “theme” packaging like this its never really going to look high end….its just for fun 🙂

I agree in the packaging. Seems quite shabby for such a collection.
The potential could have been developed so much better.
But anyway I’m curious about the navy nail polish the blu-toned eye-shadow quad and Athena’s kiss lipglass.

I actually like the packaging, but then again I’ve always loved comic book heroines! There’s something kitchy and fun about it. The packaging is definitely more for the collector in me and the product for the make up lover in me.

Can’t wait for swatches!

I don’t care what anyone says. I have always loved Wonder Woman and the packaging is really awesome and creative. It doesn’t look tacky or cheap to me. But it may perceive to be childish because OBVIOUSLY most of us grew up watching her as a child. I know I will be buying from this collection more for its product than the packaging itself but the packaging is just another added perk. I love how the ENTIRE collection has the special packaging. I would love to pull out a compact in public with Wonder Woman, it will make me feel like a super hero 😉

I think the packaging reflects the true essence of the comic book series, but to each his own. I will definitely be purchasing something after I see the swatches and dupe comparisons. Very Cool. Christine, you are amazing. Where do you find the time to study, take care of the dog, eat, sleep, and handle the blog, oh and maybe have time for yourself. I will be the first to sign up for you’re multi-tasking class and tutorials. I hope you know how special you are. You are an independent women who can take care of herself!!!! INCREDIBLE!

I think I’m one of the few who actually like the packaging. The only things I’m keen on getting is the penultimate liner. I loved wonder woman growing up.

Can’t wait for more pictures and swatches– might end up adding to the liner.

Not loving the packaging on this. Yes, it is based on a comic-book character but not an excuse for how tacky it looks. I’ll probably pick up the blue pigment as it’s a PRO color but everything else isn’t for me.

hmmm i’m excited for the colored mascaras because i missed the lauder ones last year (or was it ’09?) that were supposedly really good, but we shall see how good these ones are. also while i’m not in LOVE with the packaging, wonder woman’s colors ARE red and blue and gold, and she IS pretty kitschy so the packaging seems to fit. admittedly i didn’t try very hard or long, but i can’t really think of anything that could make this collection more lady-like or elegant…maybe if the compacts were gold instead of red with a more subtle logo? hmmm, i’m on the fence about this collection. good thing christine is on top of reviewing these collections!

I personally LOVE IT, the packaging n all, it’s supost to look in your face, it based off a comic book!! There is nothing sleek or demure about Wonder Women she is in your face and will kick your butt! I think this collection embodys everything she is and stays true to that

Oh wow, everything looks great! I bet it will sell out faster than Venemous Villians though. Have to grab those eyeshadow palettes and lipsticks as soon as they hit the webiste. The packaging looks cheap because MAC is pretty cheap, seems fun to me. A luxery wonder woman lipstick would be weird imo, it should be young and fun and not too bent on appearences.

You really think more people out there like a cheesy 70’s TV show than Disney?

How can Wonder Woman be “young and fun” when the show is so old and no one under 30 ever even saw it?

Wonder Woman was not just part of a cheesy 70’s sitcom. She’s a comic book superhero! Much like Superman or Batman. She was someone that little girls could see and say wow a woman can be just as strong and smart as men. She was created in 1940 (41?) and is still an icon to comic book fans and non-comic book fans alike. Can you imagine how groundbreaking it was for a major icon to emerge in a time when women were still widely criticized for wanting to be independent and educated.

Yes the packaging is a bit cheesy, esp. for those that are not fans, because you will not feel a fans sense of nostalgia. But if you are not a fan then you could simply say the packaging is cheap and unfortunately I won’t be buying anything. I firmly believe in “to each their own” but your comment was harsh and unnecessary.

And yes she is still popular, so she is young and fun. With all the superhero movies released lately my daughter fell in love instantly with the idea of a superwoman! Comics are in again and just because they experienced a lull in the 90’s doesn’t mean there isn’t a fan base. Without one, a major company (MAC), wouldn’t bother doing a collaboration. Especially one this huge!

I’m interested in the Defiance Quad. I’d prefer it was in a square case, but if the packaging is really aweful I can just depot and put it into a square one myself. Thanks for posting this information!

Holy cow! Stuff looks amazing. I’m a little disappointed because another website said their was a purple-grape colored lipstick in this collection. I am loving the coloured mascaras! I may have to get one. I wanted to wait for the Zoom Coloured mascaras coming out in May. Maybe I’ll get one from this and one from the other. Hmmm. I like to blush duos as well. Oh MAC…why oh why….

i love this…although i could buy the normal Russian Red i will buy it in this packaging because my inner geek wont let me pass up on this ! 🙂

SUCH a disappointment! I LOVE som of those products, and I really want them so bad. But the packaging is stopping me. I wish they had a more classy-looking packaging, this just makes me sad and frustrated 🙁

actually, unlike a lot of the other commentors, i like the the packaging better than the colors! i might pick up the lacquers just for the cute LE look 🙂 plus, wonder women is of course DOPE!
