MAC Wonder Woman-A Small Haul

The MAC Wonder Woman collection appeared online about 10 days early.  I was only interested in the two blush duos (go figure) and knew that they were likely to sell out.  So I quickly placed my order and I received them this past Monday (thanks to the ice storm we had here).  These blushes are super sized coming in at 11 grams/.38 US oz. That is twice the size of a regular MAC blush.  They were also priced slightly higher at $24.  They are housed in a red and blue compact, with the MAC WW logo and a mirror.  There were some mixed feelings regarding the packaging, some felt it was tacky.  I personally feel that it was appropriate given that it was a comic book themed collection.  It is what it is.

Mighty Aphrodite blush duo

light side, dark side, both blended together
Mighty Aphrodite blush duo is a warm peach coral with gold pearl and bright coral pink with gold pearl.  The texture was more silky than their normal blushes and it was very pigmented.

Amazon Princess blush duo

light side, dark side, both blended together
 Amazon Princess blush duo is a bright yellow pink and a deep blue pink with gold pearl.  Again, the texture on this was very silky and it was very pigmented, even more pigmented than the Mighty Aphrodite duo.

The lipsticks and glosses looked nice but I passed as they were dupeable.  The mineralize skin finishes looked nice also, I may pick those up later.  The eyeshadow quads weren't colors that I felt I needed in my collection, nor were the polishes.

Overall the blush duos were the stand out products of this collection.  The packaging didn't bother me like it bothered some.  If you can get past the packaging, I highly recommend these blushes!  The collection hits counters and stores February 10.  Are you planning on picking up anything from this collection?
