MAC Wonder Woman Eyeshadow Quad: Valiant

MAC Wonder Woman Eyeshadow Quad: Valiant


Hello dudes & dudettes! :)) How in the world are all of you? I pray that you are all feeling mighty fine just like me! :) Its storming here in the Philippines but thank God we are all safe and warm & the internet connection is as fast as usual.

Today, its about the coveted MAC Wonder Woman Collection last January 2011. I remember around April (I am so late!) while I was in Mall of Asia, the MAC store sales guy there said they ran quickly out of stock & cannot order more from USA because they too had the same experience. I hope MAC will launch a vintage-y line again!

I will be copying and pasting every description from Temptalia 'cause she's far more descriptive & mac-obsessed than me! Every italicized word you will read here belongs to her & my font style will be in regular. Also, all photos are from me (my camera, my eyeshadow quad & my arm tee-hee) so this blog is very picture heavy. :)

Ready? Here we go! :)


I super love the packaging!

Cute makeup packaging is my weakness! LOL!

SWATCHES

Manila Paper is a warm, white gold with excellent color payoff. This is a veluxe pearl finish. It is a repromote from Spring Colour Forecast. It is similar to Nylon but warmer.

Valiant is a yellowed, pale chartreuse green–extremely yellowed. It has so-so color pay off; it is a little sheer. This is a frost finish. It’s a yellower version of Juxt.

Diana Undercover is a darkened green with a brownish base. This is a satin finish. It had decent pigmentation but took a layer or two for it to show. It did work better in a look than swatched on the skin. The green is similar to the base color of NARS Blade Runner (but lacks the shimmer).

Spinning Transformation is an olive-tinged khaki brown with a soft bronze sheen. This is a frost finish. Pigmentation was decent but the texture was so thin–just not soft or silky smooth at all. It’s a less pigmented, less gold-shimmered NARS Star Sailor. It is a browner, less green-tinged Sumptuous Olive.
