For the spring makeup season, MAC has done it again to appeal to my nerdy demographic. Last autumn they managed to snag me with their Disney villains makeup line (LOVE my Maleficent lipstick), and now they're appealing to my love of girl power, comics and pop art with their newest color line inspired by the Amazonian hero Wonder Woman.

This newest line screams of boldness and color, which I highly enjoy. I love the prints in reminiscence of Lichtenstein in vibrant comic book colors, along with the bold packaging designs. The colors are what you would expect of Wonder Woman: electric blues, bright reds and heroic golds and silvers. If you're like me, and love colors that make a statement, this line is for you.

What I've been secretly coveting is the utility brush set in shimmering gold. I do makeup designs as a hobby, which I someday hope to turn into a profession, and when I saw this little wonder of wonders, I knew it had to be mine. It appeals to the makeup designer in me for its convenience, as well the comic book nerd in me who has always wanted her own utility belt. I mean, Wonder Woman does have the best accessories. And hey, I got my tax refund in, so why not treat myself to something nice?

The collection is available now till mid-April, so if you want some super powered makeup of your own, get it before it's gone.

I've always dreamed of when I would be able to get into a superhero's tights. Both figuratively and... *ahem*

Anywho, it came to my attention some time ago that there finally exists a MMORPG I really want to play. Not your Wows or your Flyffs; no, I'm talking bout DC Universe Online. Imagine: Living the life of a DC superhero, getting a nice entry-level job at Wayne Enterprises, putting on a costume and smacking bad guys at night, to come home and read the late edition of The Daily Planet. Maybe even getting a date with The Flash. Hee.

Just look at those character designs. Makes me want to be Batman.

You play as a hero or villain that you create and customize, and every player gets an iconic DC character (like Superman, Batman, Lex Luthor, or the Joker) who sends you on assignments and group missions. Your mentor can be a hero or villain, which also decides how you'll develop in the game. Also alternate gaming options let groups of players square off against each other, and there’s even the ability to throw down as your favorite DC character. You can bet that I'll be playing as Poison Ivy a lot.

Speaking of Ivy, here's an Ivy cut scene from DC Universe Online.

And just for my dear [livejournal.com profile] animefall. Because you can't have Red without her Harl.

I love it when they use the original voice actors for certain characters. I can't imagine anyone else doing Harley's voice. But that doesn't mean I'm opposed to James Marsters voicing Lex Luthor. He sounds very delightful in the cinematic commercial for the game. ♥

Now to start saving my money.
