MAC Cosmetics: Wonder Woman Collection

Posted on

Can I start by saying YAY?!

YAY!

As I’ve said on my other entry , I am not a fan of make-up products & only buy when I need to. BUT! (Yes, all caps!)

Since I am a MAC Cosmetics user (the only brand I feel like my skin is used to), I was too excited for their  Spring 2011 collection & decided to buy even though I don’t think I need to.

Ladies & Bekkies! I present my Wonder Woman goodies.

 

isn't she gorgeous?!

Could you resists your childhood hero? I can’t! Wonder Woman has been part of my childhood! She’s someone almost all girls (and gays) look up to! Her personality empowers every young woman from my generation & the previous ones (even the generation today).

It’s really hard to pick a few from the collection, for all of them are just adorable! So as hard as it is to choose, I was able to pick my top 5.

Marquise'd

Not a fan of dark hues when it comes to lipstick, so I opt to get a neutral shade. I also like bright & shocking lipstick colors such as Vegas Volt & Girl About Town.

Penultimate Eye Line

My staple make-up look would always include eye liner. So Penultimate is the way to go, it’s not messy nor smudges.

Just perfect.

Emancipation Lipglass

Not much a fan of shine, I only have 2 lip gloss (this one being the third) all in pink hues (one in super bright pink & the other in pale pink) This shade sits just right in the middle. I bet this would look good with a neutral shade such as Hug Me.

Opulash in Victorious

I was so tempted to by all three beautiful colors (blue & green) but I choose to get the violet one. It looks a stand out from the two other colors. It’s a vibrant hue! Who knows, I might feel victorious once I wear it! 😉

Lady Justice Eye Shadow

Very very cute packaging! :p

beautiful hues

I’ve been used to using dark blue eyeshadow because I have big almond eyes. It’s one of my staple colors together with brown/bronze and the ever reliable smokey black. I also use dark blue eye shadow for a smokey effect. (Will try to post another entry about make-up looks)

I saw a review about it after I’ve already bought it & saw a much better review for Valiant , I was tempted to buy Valiant as well given that one of my favorite colors is green. But then again, I’m happy with Lady Justice. She’s pretty enough as it is. The trick is to blend the colors properly so no matter how flaky or cake-ish a shadow is, you can compensate on how you apply it & blend it.

The Wonderful Wonder Woman

I would like to thank Denise Omana for getting all these for me at Macy’s 🙂

I, together with Cierre Anne Tan are one of the lucky few who won’t have to wait in line for the launching of Wonder Woman Collection on March 19,2011.

YAY na YAY! 🙂

P.S. No, I am not a make-up addict. It just so happen that I love MAC Cosmetics & Wonder Woman at the same time 🙂

Tried & Tested: MAC Cosmetics

Posted on

I have always been a MAC fan, I’d like to share with you some of my insights about this brand of cosmetic that I’ve grown to love.

Here are some of their products that has become my staple make-up:

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation $26

MAC’s Studio line has the basics that you need. I personally like this one because you can use it as a powder or as a foundation. Apply it dry (powder) or use a wet brush or sponge (foundation). It has different shades too that you can mix according to your skin tone. I use NC40-NC42 since I’m morena (tan-skinned)

MAC Select Cover Up Concealer $16.50

MAC has a variety of concealers but this one is what I’ve gotten used to. Among others, this liquid concealer is not that creamy. It is actually light & soft in the skin and does not cake or crack when applied religiously. I particularly use this for my eye bags and unwanted marks (like blemishes & pimple marks).

MAC Kohl Pencil $14.50

For those who are not a fan of eye liners there’s a good news. MAC Kohl Pencil is your safest bet and could just be your best friend. It is easy to apply and is soft-on. It is creamy, long lasting, won’t cake or streak and best of all it is easy to sharpen. You can use it to apply a sharp line or smudge it to create a smoky effect.

MAC Powder Blush $18.50

Different shades to choose from. I just love how it flawlessly adapt to my skin tone giving me natural blushed cheeks. I use “Instant Chic” in Sheertone finish.

MAC Viva Glam Gaga Lipstick $14

One of my favorite MAC lipsticks! Viva Glam Gaga is a limited edition lipstick named after Lady Gaga. This light blue pink lustre finish lipstick is perfect for every woman! Can liven up your face even with just this lipstick on. The thing I like about MAC lipsticks is the feel of softness when applied to lips, not heavy on the lips at all. Have you noticed the smell of MAC lipsticks? They smell creamy-licious! LOL

MAC Brow Set $15

Ever since I’ve learned how to groom my brows, MAC Brow Set existed in my make-up kit. I just love how I can define and shape my brows and at the same time hold them into place thanks to this product! I use Beguile shade since I sport a dark brown hair, but if I have my hair colored to a medium ash blonde I use Girl Boy for my brows.

There you have it. Some of my staple MAC Cosmetics. For more information you can check out:
