Lasso of truth? Invisible plane? Crime-fighting gold cuffs? If Wonder Woman knows one thing, it's how to accessorize. And now, thanks to the help of MAC cosmetics, she'll be able to defend against wimpy lashes, boring blushes and dull complexions too, with the company's upcoming larger-than-life spring makeup collection.
Inspired by the DC Comics' heroine, this glamazon line features two distinct looks, explains Jennifer Balbier, Senior Vice President Product Development for MAC Worldwide. "One is more day-friendly, almost like a Wonder Woman off-duty version, the other is more kitsch and comic book."
With vibrant pop-art packaging and a specially-designed logo, the updated, supersized versions of the brand's popular products include Mineralize Skinfinish and Powder Blush, Eye Shadow Quads, Pigment, Opulash, Lipsticks and Lipglass, Penultimate Eye Liner and Lashes and Nail Lacquer.
Pack a one-two punch with the dual-sided Mineralize Skinfinish (available in Pink Power and Golden Lariat, $35). Gordon Espinet, Vice President Global Makeup Artistry for MAC Worldwide, suggests using the matte part for shading and shaping, and the shiny side for creating highlights. Plus, the powder helps get rid of blotchiness, redness and discoloration.
Want to seduce your suitors with a ka-pow pucker? To avoid a heavy outline and create kissable (non-threatening) lips, Espinet recommends concentrating the color near the center of your lips, then fading out as you reach the lip line. To get the look, try Russian Red, a matte bluish-red hue or Spitfire, a satin magenta lipstick ($15.50). Or use Opulash mascara ($15) in Victorious (a powerful purple) or Themyscira (a knockout blue) to be totally disarming with your mesmerizing peepers.
And, of course, no superhero would be complete without some trusty gadgets. The collection's must-get accessories include the Invincible Mirror in a gold drawstring pouch ($20), the Utility Belt Face Brush Set ($49.50) and the shiny Bulletproof Blue Makeup Bag ($30).
The collection will be available February 10 through mid-April at MAC locations, with products ranging in price from $14 to $49.50.
