So, you may or may not know that MAC has put out a Wonder Woman line of cosmetics. On one hand, I was all, Meh. Diana doesn't need make-up. Maybe they'll decorate everything in pink frills while they're at it. On the other hand was, Ooooo! Wonder Woman make up. I hope some of that will look good on me, because I want some too, please.

So, when I saw the display this weekend at the mall, I went up to check it out. What resulted was me getting Wonder Woman make up for my SWC shows because I didn't have anything that would work at all for that level of make up needs. Also, I got about a million products that will help tame the dry skin flakeiness and generally super red cheeked wind burn look I've been sporting. I didn't know such things existed and, well, as I age my general anti-make up and anti-'girly' stance has softened because I recognize it for its roots. I didn't want to be treated as I saw the other girls being treated, so I rejected everything I associated with that type of treatment. I also associated those things with needing someone else to help take care of me and I've been self-sufficient for... well... forever it feels like some days.

And far too much so for my own good at times.

Anyway, on the Wonder Woman front, I was surprised at how many women stopped to look at the make up /because/ of Wonder Woman. There were a lot of comments about how they loved her. I know that a lot of women my age watched the TV show and grew up wanting to be Wonder Woman (or Linda Carter). I've always said that there was a huge miss in never connecting that show with anything else. Wonder Woman is a pretty powerful symbol and she's seen all over the world. When I see comments on message boards about 'Wonder Hooker' and worse it makes me sad and angry but experiences this weekend balance that out.

Some part of me wishes there really were Wonder Scouts out there doing good this, kicking ass and changing the world.

That was rambly and I'm not sure I really reached my point, but, there you go.

Guh, of course, the two colour palettes I can't really wear... pinks and reds. Dammit.

I do like the blue nail lacquer though.

The eye shadow and mascara are very much bluuuuuuuuuue and green. Kris got the blue mascara and it was crazy bright.
