Glamazon sized lipglass in Wonder Woman. Super-sized doe foot applicator.
Have you gotten your girl power on yet? I am feeling pretty powerful with MAC's Wonder Woman collection. I like how it encompasses everything I love about makeup: it's fun, playful, empowering and pretty! I purchased the collection's namesake lipglass. Wonder Woman, the lipglass, is a pretty semi-sheer pretty cherry red with golden micro sparkly micro glitter.
These gigantor lipglasses have some positive and negatives. Let's start positive. This jumbo lipglass offers a super size value. Regular MAC Lipglasses are $14.50 for 4.8g, 0.17oz, $85.29 per oz. MAC Wonder Woman Lipglasses are $20 for 10.5g, 0.37oz, $54.05 per oz. If you love the color, you will get a lot of gloss for less money. Now for the negative, even though it's a better value, you are still paying more for lipgloss. The giant size also lends to be a disadvantage for these glosses. The huge doe foot applicator makes application a little tricky. If you have thinner lips, applying these glosses may take a really steady hand. I also found that removing the wand required more than usual effort. You definitely had to tug to get it out of the tube. Also, when pulling out the wand, gloss flings during removal. Be careful not get drop gloss on your clothes or floor.
Overall, I'm glad I picked up the color that I liked most. There is a ton of excitement for this collection, and I'm sure that many things will sell out quickly. However, I don't think I will be picking up any other glosses from this collection. I found the glamazon-sized doe foot applicator difficult to maneuver.
My haul. See my review of the powder blushes.

Wonder Woman swatched. See the tiny golden glitter.
On lips. I think this color is so pretty, but I did find it physically hard to apply.

MAC Wonder Woman Lipglass in Wonder Woman is available at maccosmetics.com now and at stores February 10th.
Pro: Big (literally) value. You get a lot more gloss for your money.
Con: BIG applicator. Those with thinner lips may find application difficult. Takes a good heave-ho to pull out the applicator from the tube. Watch for flying gloss when you're pulling out the applicator. Limited edition.
