Superheroes meet fashion this week as it was announced that MAC Cosmetics will be introducing a line of limited edition Wonder Woman themed cosmetics next month. Given the proliferation of superheroes in pop culture, it was only a matter of time before they hit the makeup counter.

Wonder Woman has always known the importance of astounding accessories. For her collaboration with M∙A∙C, we’ve infused her sense and fantasy and wonder into a vivid collection of awe-inspiring accessories as fierce and feminine as the heroine herself. Bright, bold, superhuman designs in Makeup Bags – from radiant Red to Bulletproof Blue, Utility Belt Brush Sets, and exclusively online, the WW T-Shirt and Invincible Mirror. Shazam!


While we adore the key art by Mike Allred — available on a limited edition T-shirt — at least in photos, the product packaging looks a little…plastick-y. However, some of the other items are to die for!

LIPSTICK ($15.50)
• Marquise d’ – Sandy cream peach (Lustre)
• Russian Red – Intense bluish-red (Matte)
• Spitfire – Bright creamy magenta (Satin)
• Heroine – Brown bronze (Frost)

Russian Red is a MAC perennial favorite, but the others are a little lifeless for our tastes. These would go well with a smokey eye.

LIPGLASS ($19.50)
• Emancipation – Pale neutral pink Wonder Woman
• Wonder Woman – Bright red with soft pearl Athena’s Kiss
• Athena’s Kiss – Bright blue fuchsia Secret Identity
• Secret Identity – Mid-tone copper with soft pearl

Secret Identity is definitely for the bold, but Emancipation looks about right.

OPULASH ($15)
• Victorious – Purple
• Army of Amazons – Green
• Themyscira- Blue
• Black- Black

Non-black mascara definitely caters to the cosplay crowd.

PENULTIMATE EYE LINER ($18.50)

We like the idea of this product but would have a hard time pulling it out anywhere we wanted to be taken seriously.

Now we’re talking — a tempting array of nice neutrals that can take you from day — a meeting at JLA headquarters — right into night — snapping the neck of crazed killers.

POWDER BLUSH (DUO) ($24)
• Mighty Aphrodite – Warm peach coral with gold pearl/Bright coral pink with gold pearl (Satin/Frost)

MINERALIZE SKINFINISH ($35)
• Pink Power – Peachy rose with pink shimmer/Soft rosy bronze/Soft shell pink with fine shimmer
• Golden Lariat – True coral with fine gold shimmer/Soft suntanned bronze/Soft gold with fine shimmer

These would go great in the utility belt as pick-me-ups when you don’t have time to do a complete makeup touch-up.

M∙A∙C Wonder Woman Utility Belt Eye Brush Set $49.50
M∙A∙C Wonder Woman Utility Belt Face Brush Set $49.50

Perhaps the most overtly superhero-themed of the items, these can actually be worn as a belt. Just because you’re saving the world doesn’t mean you can’t have a flawless finish to your complexion.

M∙A∙C Wonder Woman Invincible Mirror $20

For those looking to buy a gift, you can’t go wrong with this.

M∙A∙C Wonder Woman T Small, Medium, Large $25

Over at Temptalia, many commenters feel the packaging looks cheap, but others defend it:

I can’t believe how many people are complaining about the packaging…it’s Wonder Woman…the packaging screams classic Wonder Woman. I love it…I don’t think it’s cheap looking at all, it looks like it should look:)

Our take: Don’t be surprised if you see The Beatdabbing on a few of these products at some show this year.

  1. I haven’t worn makeup in over 30 years; is it all that expensive?

    Bet the t-shirts don’t go above Large size…

  2. The “Obey Me” nail polish cracked me up. I’d love to have a gig writing makeup names!

  3. I really want that Obey Me nail polish. I love red nail polish anyway, and that looks to be a gorgeous color. At $14, that’s almost not insanely priced. The rest of it … well, I’m broke and I’m happy with the makeup I buy (and I’m pretty particular about it).

    I do like the aesthetic, though, overall.

  4. Jeanine says:

    I’ve written and rewritten many many responses to the previous Wonder Woman post, and those bemoaning the “myth” of the treatment of women in some comic shops, but I keep deleting because I want to make sure my response is clear-headed.

    But I must make myself heard on this very srs bzns! Blue eye-shadow quad only for trustafarians?! UNTRUFAX! The people demand a recount!

  5. Jeanine, blue eyeshadow is one those things that can be wonderful but in the wrong hands it can destroy life.

  6. Everything about this is wonderful except for the artwork … which is well-drawn. We need to outlaw the photoshop filter that leads the public to believe comic book artwork = gigantic halftone dots.

  7. Jeanine says:

    Ahahaha! Okay, I can’t really deny that.

    Also, I want all of this make-up, there I said it and I’m not sorry.

  8. Ah… the Ben Day dots are a cliche, but the “Pow Bang” sound effects are not?

    The large dots and sound effects are a remnant from the Pop Art movement of the 1960s. It’s an easy way to take comics art and make it stylish.

    Okay… buying it now, to give to my 8yo niece in a few years. Or maybe her mother could use it…

  9. The women I know who were born men will eat this up.

  10. The Pow Bang sound effects are a cliche too … but I want to get rid of the Ben Day dots first. Comic books never looked THAT bad.

  11. The dots are supposed to clue in non-comics readers.

    Hey Ms. Beat; although generally I agree with your tastes, I must speak up in defense of the occasional use of colored mascara by women our age who are NOT cosplayers. My grey eyes benefit greatly from green mascara.

    & I love Wonder Woman so much that I wold totally whip out that marker-lookin’ eyeliner anywhere, anytime. Hell yeah. & bring ont hat Secret Identity. ;) Want to go to the MAC Store.

  12. Trish Mulvihill says:

    I don’t like the packaging. Kinda cheesy :(

  13. “The dots are supposed to clue in non-comics readers.”

    I know … pathetic …

  14. First a Cyndi Lauper lipstick, and now a Wonder Woman make up kit. Mac rocks!!!

  15. Hack again?!

  16. poopy face tomato nose says:

    Looks cool, but a bit expensive, I used a calculator to see how much it would be if you got one of every thing and it goes up to $323. hmmmm………

Speak Your Mind
