As part of this whole "getting ready for adult-life interviews and jobs" I decided I should update my makeup; quite a bit of the stuff I own was used as stage makeup for high school plays :\ I got some graduation money so I decided to splurge and get a few things from the MAC Wonder Woman line. If I've gotta be an adult at least I can get comic-book themed adult things :D

(Pictures are small and blurry because they're from my phone. Can't find the USB for my camera :( )




There's been mixed reviews of the packaging but I like it. I love the blush's compact and the paler pink, though I'm not sure if I'll end up using the bright pink shade. I'm torn on the lipstick. Since I don't normally wear lipstick I was wary of getting something too bright or bold, and this is a nice neutral, sheer pink. But it's very sheer; I have chapstick that gives the same amount of color. Hopefully this makes up for it by lasting longer than chapstick.

The MAC store was confusing. Crowded as hell, couldn't test out or try on any of the samples without waiting for one of the makeup artists to free up, and (as far as I could tell) you have to bring the sample to the counter so someone can get you the buyable product, meaning a bunch of samples were missing from the display. I was in and out in 10 minutes but I was hoping to have more time to choose colors and look around.

Awwww....that's really cute packaging! I would have been tempted to buy those if I'd seen them :)

I read some people complaining that it's too campy, but I don't mind the bright comic book style at all. I especially like the boxes and the touches of gold on the cases. You can get makeup in sleek black packaging anywhere; I'm glad that there's the bright fun stuff too.

Oh neat, I've been wanting to check the Wonder Woman makeup out. I think the packaging's really cute too. Michael Allred is one of my favorite comic artists.

I didn't know an actual comic artist designed the packaging; very cool! There's a good range of different products so it's worth checking out to see if something strikes your fancy.
