Review & Swatches: MAC Wonder Woman Pigments & Reflects Glitters

Wonder Woman Pigments in Ultra Marine & Bright Fuchsia
Reflects Glitters in Reflects Bronze & Reflects Pearl

MAC’s Wonder Woman collection includes 2 Pigments and 2 Reflects Glitters. Marine Ultra is a matte, bright blue pigment. Bright Fuchsia is a slightly shimmery color that’s true to its name. Reflects Bronze and Pearl are bronze/gold and white silver glitters.

For complete pictures and swatches, please read the Wonder Woman Eye Shadow Pigments and Reflects Glitters post. Click here for a video overview of the eye products.

Important Note on Safety: Even though these products are technically under the “eye products” category, each of these colors comes with a warning specifying limited use. Marine Ultra has a warning saying it is not safe for the lips, Bright Fuchsia says it is not safe for the eyes, and both Reflects Glitters are not safe for the eyes.

It is absolutely imperative that you do NOT use the Reflects Glitters around the eyes. The glitter particles are not finely milled enough to be safe and can scratch and damage your eyes.
