Wonder Woman!!

10:26:00 PM mandy 32 Comments

I didn’t grow up watching/reading Wonder Woman but she is nonetheless a classic heroine. Wonder Woman + MAC + oversized jumbo products = EXCITEMENT :] But I have to admit..I definitely have a problem if no one realized already =X I think I’m going to limit my MAC/high end purchases until I actually used a lot of the products that I currently have or until April when this certain MAC collection comes out with mineralized blushes. Don’t judge me..! *Looks away*

The products that I purchased were all limited edition and twice the sizes of normal products. This is the only reason why I allowed myself to purchase these items. They’re twice the size but not double in price. I’m in denial. I can’t control myself! Making up excuses all the time for my spendings..

I was actually able to get these a day before the official release at the MAC pop-up store in Soho. I’m not sure if it’s a permanent store or not because MAC Soho’s original location (literally 2 store away from this pop-up location) was already being renovated for something else. The pop-up store was completely decorated with the Wonder Woman theme. I wonder if they’re going to be changing it once this collection fades out?


What pretty packaging!
I already keep the boxes of most of the products I purchase, but when I do decide to throw those away..this will not be one of them :P


Inside of the boxes. So patriotic!

It looks a little cheap IMO But it is pretty sturdy plastic.

I think this one is more true to the color in the pan.

This one is closer to the true color. It might be a smidgen darker though.

Did anyone find this collection captivating? Who else couldn't pass up on the jumbo products?
I was also interested in a lip gloss but decided against it since I don't even wear lip products often.
I'll try to post comparison photos to show you just how jumbo these products are soon! ^__^ You'll be very surprised if you haven't already seen it.

  2. Jennifer: No problem! Are you planning to get anything? :P According to http://iamgrape1119.blogspot.com/2011/02/mac-spring-2011-update.html There's going to be mineralized blushes in April! =X

  3. I like what you got from the Wonder Woman collection but the packaging didn't appeal to me much :) Which my wallet is thanking me for. I saw the mineralized blushes from the Quite Cute collection and I LOVE the design with the heart. I might need to pick one of those up :X I don't have many things from Mac and I've never shopped at the counter or store. Do you ask the sales associates for a particular product and they get it for you? I feel so intimidated and awkward in stores where the products aren't laid out for you to take and bring to the cashier >.<

  4. AngelicBetral: The packaging wasn't too appealing, but I really liked the shades. Ahh..I need to stop myself from buying anymore high end products for now. That is the next one I'm looking forward to. All these collections..my wallet is in pain! =X I totally understand. I probably look really awkward/out of place when I'm there lol Yeah, you have to ask them for the product. It would be best if you told you the items you want at once after you look around because they tend to like to keep the items at the register until you pay.

  8. Shop N' Chomp: LOL Tempting? :P I can't wait to use it. I'm hoping it could help me match my neck a little better when I wear bb cream..

  11. Wow, Pink Power has 20g? How will you ever finish it! LOL

  12. same~ hahaha didn't grow up watching wonder woman. ^.^

    I LOVE both the blush and the MSF. But I don't know whether I can bring myself to buy them. The packaging of the actual product is kinda .....hmmm... not my style. hahaha Nonetheless, they still look gorgeous~

    ohh, what camera are you using? The pics are very good. Impressed! I still haven't played with my camera. Any tips?

  13. DinaXYYAN: LOL I don't know! But hopefully it'll stop me from buying too many in the future :P

    Popcorn: I agree. The packaging is kind of bland and stands out too much. But I don't carry MU around anyways so it doesn't really matter. For this it's more product over packaging! I'm using the Canon T1i. I've only had time to use the regular default settings. Hopefully I can play around with it more when my next break comes :D

  14. that looks really cool! is this a new theme?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Mystical: It's one if MAC's newest collection that released 2 days ago :]

    ReplyDelete
  16. I haven't checked out any of MAC's new products yet! I'm always super late to fall in love with their collections :P I never even knew what a beauty powder was until recently when I purchased it by accident thinking it would be so pigmented like their blushes :p

    ReplyDelete
  17. Rainy Days and Lattes: I have a blog reading problem lol I follow so many and quite a few of them blog about MAC so I'm always updated in some way :P Oh..I've never tried beauty powders before. I guess it would be nice for a light wash of color? But what a pity since some of them look like they'd be really nice blushes!

  18. Yes, it is tempting. XD

    I didn't get to try the chocolate shots! Only b/c I already bought the hot chocolate and theirs is hella rich. @_@

  19. the packaging looks so cool. the color looks lovely.

  20. Shop N' Chomp: Mmm sounds yummy lol I haven't had a hot chocolate at all this winter..

    missmercurylady: Yup! Do you think you'll get it? :D

  21. mandy: i checked out the MAC link for the mineralize blushes! sakura (the lavendar one) looks nice :D!!! which one are you eyeing?

    ReplyDelete
  22. yay i actually think the lavender bits are there for the smell lol but then the bits aren't harsh on skin at all surprisingly! am trying hard to finish up the whole tub, haha. Have you finished anything lately?

    ReplyDelete
  23. so mascara is not a regular product in your makeup routine ^_^? i think that l'oreal mascara has probably been released in the US but being repackaged :)? i don't use mascaras often but for special occasions, haha

    ReplyDelete
  24. p.s. maybe do a "finished products" post once in a while XD? I'm thinking of making it to (Volume 1) and (Volume 2) coz there's no way i can finish more than 1 item per month...

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have the problem of never buying enough makeup. That is REALLY cool packaging!

  26. Thank you Mandy! It's not too late to have your ears pierced yet :D

    ReplyDelete
  27. Chelsea Elizabeth: Really? I recently started to have the opposite of your problem =X

    DinaXYYan: Just the thought of it makes me cringe. I'm a big scaredy-cat =X

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sorry for peeping at others' comment: am too scared to even think about getting my ears pierced :X you too?

    ReplyDelete
  29. yeah same! i'd rather my mom got my ears pierced before i have the realization of how painful it is going to be, hahaha!! btw, the hair mask is like how you'd use a conditioner basically :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. confession: i don't use conditioner too! found them pretty heavy for the hair if used everyday, haha and the most important part is laziness!

  31. OMG you updated so much I cannot believe I missed out!! stupid blogger not showing the updates >< I don't know it's been like this for a week now... that's why I was starting to wonder if that's just blogger limiting the dashboard to protect the system or something :T

    ah I won't judge you... I have makeup-abuse problem as well XD but I've been really limiting my purchases... spent wayyy too much earlier this year. lol. the blush does look really pretty though <3

  32. Frances: All week?! That hasn't happened to me then :X I'm going to try my best to not buy as much this month because I have my eyes on a few products from the next MAC collection. Going to try to rotate my products more ;D
