That lasso of truth would have been handy on a few ex-boyfriends of my past! The actress that played her Lynda Carter was stunning and at 61, she still is! I just remember how much I wanted to look like her when I grew up.
Also, this will change when I got a little older and saw Phoebe Cates in Fast Times at Ridgemont High...more on her another day!
Okay so what could drag me out of my warm home and make me miss story time with my mini-cupcake? I attended the MAC/Wonder Woman collaboration event at the PRO Store on Union Street, SF. It was a mad house - it took me an hour just to look for parking! The last time I attended one of these parties was for the Fafi collection about three years ago and I was pregnant.
I am so glad I wasn't pregnant at this event:

For full color reviews please see Karen's review and her hilarious comic homage to Wonder Woman, herself. I wanted to swatch more colors but there was so many people in this store and just so much product, I was completely overwhelmed and my minor Adult A.D.D. just went into overdrive!!
Please meet the two hardest working men in the room that helped calmed my nerves:

Overall,I wasn't completely smitten with this collection. I just felt that I have seen this all before. I even like the packaging. I am a huge eyeliner girl and I wasn't pleased that the only eyeliner in this collection was the Jumbo sized Penultimate Eye Liner (black). Because I was somewhat underwhelmed I walked away with just two items:
Heroine lipstick and Golden Lariat MSF powder:
I am loving this MSF - I have used it all last week. I have a review on this coming soon. I still need to test this lipstick. I don't have the best luck with the Frost finish lipsticks so I'm keeping my fingers crossed on this. I think the main reason I bought this shade was for sentimental reasons - it reminded me of a shade I wore when I was 24.
I had a Fetish moment:
Is anyone else disturbed by this crotch shot of Wonder Woman on the lipstick box?
