mac wonder woman purchases♥

You've probably seen a million blogposts on the wonder woman collection by now, but I just received my order this afternoon and I had to blog about it.

I had a list of 7 products when the collection images first started popping up, I then somehow managed to slash it in half and then some, vowing to only buy 3 products, but when push came to shove and it appeared online, I ordered all 7 products, which definately means I have failed one of my 'beauty resolutions'.

The packaging and products are so much nicer than I thought they would be -  I don't know why but I just thought they were going to fall apart in my hands, because people were saying how tacky and rubbish the prodcucts were. I absolutely adore the boxes and the over-sized products, it's just so fun to have something different every now and again. If my bedroom was a mish-mash of colours I would display the boxes on a shelf for sure.

I won't waffle on about the products too much, I just thought I'd share some pictures.. and some not so great swatches.
(Apologies in advance, my camera would not focus today!!)
Mighty Aphrodite and Amazon Princess (Oversized 11g)
£21.00 each
Pink Power MSF (MASSIVE 20G!)
  This is beautiful - I was slightly worried that the largest bronzer part was going to be far too dark and far too orange, but I think I can just about get away with it. The shimmery parts on both sides are gorgeous also, very smooth and nicely pigmented.
Reflects Pearls & Reflects Bronze (Regular size)
 Utterly stunning, I did take these off of my list but I know I would've kicked myself if I hadn't of got them. I managed to drop bronze all over the bathroon floor a few days ago, I didn't loose that much, but the bathroom is still covered in the stuff, even though I've mopped the floor 3-4 times since! hehe.
£17.00 each
Marquise D' Lipstick (Lustre - Regular size)
 This is actually amazing, it has the potential to become one of my most favourite lipsticks ever!

Emancipation Lipglass - (JUMBO sized )
This is a truly stunning peachy/pink lipgloss. Im not normally a lipgloss kind of girl, but I have found myself lovely them alot lately. One thing I hate though, is how hard it is to get the applicator out. It splattered all over me. Gross!
(Reflects glitters swatched over UDPP)
Overall I think this was a brilliant collection, bright, bold and just different! Now I can't wait for the 'Quite Cute' collection!

I also purchased I couple of bits from Supreme Sheen, Jeanius and Viva glam which I will blog about very soon.

What did you think about the wonder woman collection? Hit or Miss?

  4. When I first saw the collection I thought it was tacky as well, I only have one product, Sinister, and now I love the packaging adds some brightness to my make-up bag and I love wiping it out of my make-up bag, it's definitely an attention seeker...x
