What's Your Super Power???

Last Thursday marked the launch of MAC's much anticipated Wonder Women collection.  And just as expected it was a huge hit. 

Is it because of the packaging, over sized products or all the hype surrounding this pop art collection? 

Though probably a bit of each, I think it has a lot to do with every girls secret urge to not only be a sexy, powerful and strong woman, but every girls urge to secretly possess a super human power. 

This got me to thinking, of all the the super powers I could possess which would I choose.  To be invisible, be able to fly like a bird, walk through walls, read minds, teleportation...... so many options! 

After weighing the pros and cons of each I came to the conclusion that I don't think I would want to have any of these super human powers (could you imagine reading minds, does anyone really want to know what people are thinking all the time).  I guess for now I'll have to settle for just being me!

Here is a FOTD inspired by one of the Wonder Women face charts using Defiance shadow quad.  Although the colours are not entirely different from anything MAC has launched in previous limited collections or part of the permanent line it is a very versatile combination.  All the colors work really well together and it will make a good travel companion.
