MAC Wonder Woman Pink Power Mineralize Skinfinish

Initially MAC Wonder Woman Pink Power MSF turned me off. Which was good, seeing as how Nordstrom sold out of it before I got there =\ Before I saw everything in person it was the one I wanted, but when I swatched the MSF in person it just was SO light. I definately wasn't in the market for JUST a highlighter. So I picked up Golden Lariat and was actually happy.

Then the lemming happened. It sold out SO fast everywhere... was nearly impossible to get... so obviously I needed it. I called a ton of stores, harrassed people to swap, watched the LJ sales like a hawk.... nothing. I called MAC to see if they'd restock and they said it's likely no, but to call the 800 number and press option 6 (I think?) and ask them because SOMEtimes OOS items can still be found floating around. Don't you know they had a shipment there ready to put online! The CS rep happily sold me one (tax free!) and I squeedddddd lol



It's absolutely gorgeous and glowy on. It actually did show up nicely on my NW25 skin tone, though I do wish the pink part was a little bigger. It seems like it's different on every MSF, so if I could have picked, I'd have picked more pink. It also arrived with the MSF part skewed. (as you can see in the pic)... which bugs my OCD to no end, but I didn't want to call and whine, seeing as how I felt like I hit the jackpot anyway lol

Packaging:

Here are finger swatches, the pinkie has the colors blended together.

It looks so pretty, but I'm not a fan of the packaging, it looks quite cheap to me z=

So total makeup dummy question, Are you supposed to swirl your brush around the whole thing and let the colors mix or are they intended to be used seperately. Help me oh wise one!

you can do either! the top shade is a highlighter, the middle is a bronzer and the bottom is the blush part. I usually suck in my cheeks and put the bronzer in the hollows in like a candy cane shape of movement lol I blend the cheekbone with the bottom color and smile big and dab the highlighter on my cheekbones.

OR you can just swirl it all and make it like a blush. Concentrate your brush more on the color you want to stand out.

Ah, that makes sense. I knew you'd have the answer.
