KA-POW! Finally got my hands on a piece of Wonder Woman. Undoubtedly the most coverted collection of the year, I desperately wanted to be in on the action before the nationwide launch on Thursday 3rd March, but for us mere mortals that reside North of London, it’s proved tricky.
Mac says… A superhero mascara! Lashes go dense and dramatic with an anti–gravity high volume curled effect. Longwear, fighting–fit formula offers up to 15 hours of wimp–free wear.
I say… you had me at the packaging. Whoever said good things come in small packages was wrong, mac’s Wonder Woman collection is bigger and better than previous incarnations. I opted for Victorious, a vivid purple. As a habitual black wearer, it’s quite a departure for me, but the Wonder Woman collection is not for plane Jane’s.
So the tube is fat, the wand is chunky and the colours is, well VERY purple. But don’t be scared, it’s actually quite natural once applied. I teamed it with a plum eye shadow for a purple smokey eye, works really well for Green eyes. It’s easy to apply, although the chunky wand isn’t great for getting in all the crevices and it requires a couple of coats. Good for creating volume, it’s long lasting and doesn’t smudge or clump.
So, did it make me feel like Wonder Woman, not really but every now and again I’d catch my lashes in the mirror and think, they do look pretty kick ass!
£14.50, available online from Selfridges, nationwide at Mac counters from Thursday 3rd March.
