Going to the MAC Wonder Woman Party Today


I am heading straight to the MAC store after work to attend the MAC Wonder Woman Preview Party! I went there last week with a few friends and the lady let me take a looksie at the collection (but swatches will be available later tonight or tomorrow morning). I love Wonder Woman so it was exciting to hear about this collection, however to be honest- nothing in this collection really stands out for me other than the lipsticks and lipglasses, but even that I am sure is debatable.

The eyeshadow palettes, based on preliminary swatches and other observations from other bloggers were a bit disappointing to say the least, some citing hard to apply, being chalky, or nothing to really make you say "wow". And some of the colors I already have something similar and/or would never wear myself.

The colored mascaras are cool and reminds me of a phase in high school when I was into them, but there are tons of dupes for this, including the Hard Candy mascaras at Walmart for half the price.

The blush duos and MSF's are nice if you don't have any and I think the shades are nice on any skintone, but again it's not something we haven't seen before, and one of the blush duos reminds me of "Ripe Peach" which I already have, and the MSF I own, I rarely use. So I don't know if I will be nabbing any of these, but man I am a sucker for packaging! I just have to see these in person to really see if they do any justice.

The lipsticks and lipglasses I love, I notice I am an avid collector of lipsticks and lipglasses and usually end up picking two lippies from every collection, and this is no different! I actually do not own "Russian Red" and it's nice to have a red lippie that works well with my skintone, so I might nab this. And I have "Petals & Peacocks" lipstick which everyone is saying is close to "Spitfire", so I gotta see how they compare.  I would never really wear "Heroine" (the brownish bronze lipstick), and Marquise d' looks a little sheer for my taste so I might pass on these. But I am loving the lipglasses "Athena's Kiss" and "Emancipation", even though "Athena's Kiss" is similar to "Magnetique" lipglass.

And everything else like the pigments, glitter, brush bag, etc. are definitely items I don't see myself reaching for (I have TONS of pigments that are barely getting any love from me these days sadly enough), so I am gonna pass on these.

I can't wait to take a few pics and get some swatches for you ladies!

I'm going to the preview party for Wonder Woman as well tonight! The only thing that stood out to me was the Mighty Aphrodite Blush Duo.
