When my BFF, sent me a photo from her phone of the M.A.C. counter decked out and covered with Wonder Woman products, I was totally elated. Anyone that knows me, should know I am a huge Wonder Woman fan! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make it to the M.A.C. cosmetic counter for a couple weeks, and when I finely went to the M.A.C. counter at Paradise Valley Mall, I was disappointed to learn that they had sold out of almost the entire collection. Apparently, this limited edition collection was very popular. The packaging is nostalgic of the Wonder Woman from the comic book series and the cosmetic M. A. C. has even put together a series of Wonder Woman looks: Classic Wonder Woman, Defiance, Golden Lariat, Deep Truth, Mighty Aphrodite and Marine Ultra.
I was so excited and surprised, when my Aunt showed up at my house with the Wonder Woman makeup case and the cosmetic products that they still had left in the collection. I have also been getting text and Facebook messages from my friends about any of the Wonder Woman products they find. If you are looking for the Wonder Woman cosmetic collection, rumor has it that the
M. A. C. counter at the Arizona Biltmore still has some products available. I would like to send out a huge thank you to all my friends and family that have supported my Wonder Woman addiction.
“Please take my hand. I give it to you as a gesture of friendship and love, and of faith freely given. I give you my hand and welcome you into my dream.” Wonder Woman
I spotted this beautiful gloss at the MAC counter, and had to have it. When I got home I realized, I already had this exact gloss already. ( Am I the only one that has done this? ) I guess, that proves how much I like it. It is such a great everyday color. The best thing about this color, is that it works with everything. It’s an ideal shade, if you are playing up the eyes, and you don’t wan’t to do a dark or bright lip. Viva Glam V is neutral, but not boring or “muddy”. This works well on it’s own, or over a lipstick. I am including a few lip products that I pair with this gloss.
M.A.C ‘s Viva Glam Lipgloss and Lipsticks, don’t just look nice they support a good cause!
Every cent of the selling price of Viva Glam Lip Stick and Lip Gloss is donated to the M.A.C. AIDS fund, to support men, women and children living with HIV and AIDS.

With the popularity of shows like True Blood, Vampire Diaries and the Twilight series, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that vampires have become a fashion inspiration. One popular beauty trend this fall is vampire inspired makeup. Pale faces and dark red lips were found on runway models for designers like George Chakra and Dolce Gabbana.
This is one of the looks from Dolce Gabbana.
This look was created with three shades of red lipstick from Dolce Gabbana.
Devil ( blue-red), Dahlia ( deep merlot), and Ultra ( rich, dark crimson).
To create depth, use the darkest color (Ultra), in the center.
