You've no doubt seen pictures of the MAC Wonder Woman collection already. This is another interesting collaboration from MAC and I think it will divide opinion in a similar way to last year's Venomous Villains. Personally, I'm on the fence. I loved Wonder Woman as a little girl and I even had a snazzy dressing up outfit. I tend to be more conservative in my makeup taste though. I'm not sure what I think to the product packaging but I love the promotional artwork which also appears on the external packaging. I think that's the bit that makes me feel most nostalgic.
The first thing that caught my eye from this collection was Marquise D' lipstick. This is a re-promote of a colour that came out with the Blonde Brunette Redhead collection a couple of years ago. It's also a shade I regret not purchasing so I'll definitely be snapping this up. I'm also keen to take a look at Spitfire lipstick, a bright magenta and the super-sized duo blush in Amazon Princess. I'll confess a fascination with the jumbo sized lipglasses too. For an idea of the difference in size take a look at Temptalia's pictures here. I should mention that the prices will be bigger too for quite a few of these items, the Wonder Woman lipglasses will retail for £17 and the lipsticks for £15.
Wonder Woman be released exclusively by Selfridges on 17th February, both online and in store. It will be released nationwide on 3rd March.

Another Selfridges exclusive this month is the Shu Uemura Paloma Faith collection. Apparently influenced by Paloma's fondness for avant-garde cinema, the collection consists of a red lipstick (£20), black gel eyeliner (£20), limited edition lashes (£55) and a palette (£57). I think the palette looks very pretty and the packaging is very stylish but I'm a little surprised by the price. The cost of two eyeshadows and a blusher from the regular line would be £48 and considering that the Morphorium Blue and Sunset Gold palettes cost £39 (which incidentally, I think look beautiful) I think again you are paying extra for the special edition packaging.
Are you planning any purchases from these collections? What do you think to the Wonder Woman collection, are looking forward to indulging your inner Super Hero?
