Swatches: MAC Wonder Woman Collection

Yesterday, Vanessa (NessasaryMakeup) invited me to go with her to MAC's Wonder Woman release party. I haven't been to a release party in awhile. The last one was probably... I don't even remember when was the last time I've been to a MAC store. With the kajillion collection they seem to come out with every year, it was just difficult for me to keep up.

Off I went to the party still since it gave me a chance to catch up with Vanessa. It was just like the good old swatching days.

Going into the release party, I haven't really checked out any swatches that was available online. I've seen the packaging and it really didn't appeal to me too much. Although I like Wonder Woman as a character, the packaging for this collection reminded me of kid's makeup. So, I passed up on this collection completely and left the store empty-handed. Well, I walked out with swatches on my arms.
