Overall Opinion:

I honestly have nothing bad to say about this collection.  If your a fan of M.A.C you will more than likely be a fan of this collection and some of the JUMBO sized products in it.  I was at first put off by the color choices. I mean where does shades of green fit in to wonder womans persona? I had actually expected there to be more golds. I was also slightly annoyed by the constant reuse of the same shades ( like the pigments). Regardless, you can’t say that the quality and uber creativity isn’t top notch as usual.    After playing with the collection and working out different looks, I came up with this WONDER MUG character. I took it to the next level and borrowed a costume from Fantasy Attic .  I hope you enjoy the review, I had a lot of fun putting it together for you :)

Thanks so much for the review, this collection´ll come out in march 31 here in Cabo San Lucas, now i know for sure which colors i like and get =)

I’ve tried the purple mascara but didn’t looked very purple in the lashes… Any suggestion to use it?

I usually just use it at the tips of my lashes and keep the base black instead of going through the full lashes with it. It seems to pop better that way.

When I use a color mascara I usually use one of those white lengthening mascaras (the double sided wand ones) as a base then apply the color over the white, it definitely helps the color stand out more for me

well, thanks a lot! i had decided I wasn’t going to get anything from this collection, but after seeing this Marquis D’, Spitfire, Mighty Aphrodite and i’m sure a bunch more will be coming to live with me!
the look is awesome, and i LOVE the hair too!

I bought the athenas kiss gloss, when I tried it on @ the counter I was completely free of any makeup which for, is quite brave. I was blown away @ how it lit up my whole face. its a bold fuschia with blue undertones but I love how it wasnt too metallic, frosty, or pearly, …just a really subtle glimmer of pink and blue sparkle. I was soo excited I almost bought 2 but there was only one left. Its definitely going on my prized makeup peices shelf!
