M.A.C’s Wonder Woman Eye Liner Packs A Punch!
I was so excited to get to the M.A.C store and use my ex-boyfriends credit card to buy these basic necessities. After searching around for a store or counter close to my current location (rather than wasting 2hrs in traffic driving all the way back home) I found a M.A.C counter in the Bloomingdales at Beverly Center in West Hollywood.
The product launch was that Thursday morning. I got there around 5pm that same evening and M.A.C was already sold out of most of the products. Apparently M.A.C should be listed as a controlled substance.
The sales person that helped me, Gina, the make-up artist extraordinaire, was great! She wasn’t just trying to get me to buy everything and anything. She was actually interested in what my preferences were and the make-up look I was trying to accomplish. She was extremely patient with me as I hemmed and hawed over what to get. AND she gave me helpful career advice.
Here’s what I bought:
2 lip glosses in “Wonder Woman” red and “Secret Identity” bronze
1 lipstick in “Heroine” a bronzy color
2 nail polishes in “Obey Me” red and “Spirit of Truth” blue (I want to get a red & blue french manicure with these two)
2 liquid eyeliner pens in “Rapidblack”
I wish I had purchased the bronzer and eye shadow sets too. Oh well, didn’t want to push my luck with the credit card.
In the end, it cost about $136.64. I am glad some things were out of stock because I would have wanted to spend even more.
The packaging is cute, fun and made me feel like a kid again (not that I wore makeup as a kid, but… ya know). Also, the red, white and blue theme makes it a great way to show off you patriotism this July.
So far I only tried the eye liner, RapidBlack, which is… well black. I ❤ it! The other stuff is so cute, I don’t want to open it. The eye liner is basically a big felt tip pen, so if you want a tiny line, this may not be for you. I was able to get a nice smooth line and I could even to the wingtip and make them even on both sides on the first try, (I can do that cat eye, pin-up girl liner on others but I have a hard time doing it on myself with one eye half closed) I was very pleased.
I was surprised at the excessive packaging. The products come in red boxes that are slid into colorful, comic book theme sleeves. I guess DC and M.A.C are not worried about the environment.
Some may say that DC sold out Wonder Woman. She started out as an a** kicking super hero fighting Nazis and now she is hocking red, hooker lipgloss in an effort to “fight the powers of drabe.” But, a girls gotta eat. Who am I to say it’s wrong. All I know is that with this “Wonder Woman” red lipgloss, I feel like I can take on the World!
