Product Description

Pigmentation & Color:


I love how you're getting more than 3 shades in one compact! Besides the obvious 3 shades in the pan, you can actually get a super pretty light peachy pink if you mix the top and bottom colors together, a lovely rosey peach if you mix the bottom 2 colors, or swirl all 3 colors to get a nice medium peachy pink color! :D

Description on the website:

Left: Peachy rose with pink shimmer. Center: Soft rosy bronze. Right: Soft shell pink with fine shimmer.  


Swatch:

From left: 1st 3 swatches are swatches from bottom to top, the last one is all 3 colors swirled together.

This is not the best photo to show how pretty this looks on against my skin because i had to adjust the contrast and colors of this picture due to crap lighting (super cloudy). I layered the two lighter shades over the MAC Nuance Mineralize Blush:



A better picture to come soon I promise! Check out my FOTD this coming Friday! :D

Pigmentation wise these are great! One swipe is all it takes for it to appear on my cheeks! :D


Texture:
MAC has definitely came a looooong way since their old super chunky glitterbombs of the old! This MSF applies smoothly and glides on beautifully!

Packaging:


This MSF comes in a supersized compact much like their regular MSFs, just bigger! :D



Since this is a Wonder Woman exclusive, there is a logo from the cartoon printed on the cover:



I heart the print on the box it came in!! So old school!! :D



Time Test:
This highlighter lasts the whole day on my cheeks! :D

Price & Availability:
At a glance, this may seem expensive at US$35 / RM145 each, but you're actually getting DOUBLE the amount of the regular MSF at about 1/3 of the price extra. This is available at MAC, but its limited edition and flying off the shelves, so hurry if you like this! :D

Usage:
The possibilities are endless with this compact - you're actually getting a highlighter, several blushes and a contouring shade in one pretty compact! :D


My $0.02:


While the rest of the MAC Wonder Woman collection was rather underwhelming for me personally, this pretty baby did shine bright in comparison to the rest! :D

The colors you get from this compact are beautiful, and methinks that it'll suit a wide range of skin tones! I also love how smooth it applies and how it isn't overly shimmery.

At RM145 it can be considered expensive, but taking into consideration the amount you're getting (twice as much as a regular MSF) and royalty MAC has to pay to DC Comics it isn't too bad!

I'm not a fan of the packaging and i thought that the prints on them were tacky, but i LOVE the bright red compact! :D

You know what? This is actually my first official MSF, so it will always have a special place in my heart! Hehehe!! <3

  3. I'm not very impressed with this collection tbh, but this product is tempting me. The colors are so beautiful! I'm not a fan of the packaging, I think it's quite tacky but it's good that it's bigger than the regular MSF, especially considered the price. :)

    But i'll have to say that this MSF is truly beautiful despite the tacky packaging! And yes, the amount you're getting for that price makes this all the more better! :D
