And welcome back to Diving Into Cosmetics, the column in which I write about my experiences with makeup. It’s been a while since I’ve written about my adventures, but have no fear there will be more to come. Let’s start this first entry of 2016 with some awesome geek related news!
Wonder Woman and Star Trek are getting cosmetic lines!
In the past, Wonder Woman has had lines before but this time it’s Walgreens who’ll be debuting a new and inexpensive line. The news comes to us via a Twitter post by comic book artist and writer Ming Doyle who attended WonderCon last week and posted the following tweet:
OMG! I’m definitely getting the lipstick, nail polish, and of course the makeup tote! According to the pic, the line will be available in May.
We’ll have to wait a bit longer for MAC cosmetics’ Star Trek’s line though.
In honor of the series 50th anniversary, MAC cosmetics will launch a 25-piece special deco collection that will feature lipstick, eyeshadow, nail polish and other products inspired by Deanna Troi, Uhura, Seven of Nine and Vina the Orion slave girl. According to Robot 6 (a blog on CBR.com), the collection will debut first on July 21st at the MAC Cosmetics store in the Gaslamp Quarter at San Diego Comic-Con before arriving online on Aug. 25 and in stores on Sept. 1.
From the character pictures, we can kinda tell what the makeup colors will be. Though it’s a bit of a wait, my excitement balances out my anticipation. I’m looking forward to both of these collections.
