BREAKING NEWS! "Wonder Woman by MAC"
When reading Temptalia today I happened across this post boasting a report from Womens Wear Daily (WWD) about a MAC Cosmetics launch dedicated to the iconic DC Comics heroine; Wonder Woman.
In many incarnations Wonder Woman has gone from her own series, to a man-hating huntress, to a key member of the famed Justice League alongside the likes of Superman, Batman, The Martian Manhunter, and The Green Lantern. For a short time she was even a blonde!
No news just yet from MAC on exactly which incarnation will influence the packaging or colors but the excitement is certainly building. In the past, MAC has had successful collections with the likes of Barbie, Hello Kitty and Disney Villainesses. To my knowledge, this is the first animated SUPER HERO they'll be paying homage to!
More info when it arrives.
MAC Cosmetics said Wednesday that the company is partnering with DC Comics’ Wonder Woman to create a limited edition color cosmetics collection featuring the illustrated superhero. Set for a spring 2011 launch at all MAC locations worldwide, the lineup is expected to include lipsticks, eye shadows, blush and nail polish ranging in price from $13 to $49.50. (No word on whether metal-deflecting bracelets are part of the collection.) — WWD
