Packaging Comparison - MAC Wonder Woman Lipglass vs. Hard Candy Glossaholic Lipgloss

Hey guys!

Today I have a bit of a different post for you. I haven't been buying much makeup at all lately simply because my money has been going towards new nail polish and new nail polish supplies (ever since I got my professional discount card, I've been having fun at stores that I wasn't allowed to shop in prior to completing my course).

Anyway, I spotted these glosses while on an unrelated trip to Wal-Mart and I knew right away that they were coming home with me.

They're only $5 and if you like nail polish with flakies in them, you'll love these glosses because they have the same type of flakies in them! I didn't think too much of the packaging at first, only that it was a little larger than normal glosses but once I got home and opened them, I realized that I had definitely seen this packaging before - from the MAC Wonder Woman lipglosses!

As you can see, the packaging is EXACTLY the same!

I know that there was a bit of controversy about these MAC Woman Woman lipglasses when the collection was released so some of you may really dislike this packaging but some of you will definitely like it. For me, I'm indifferent about it really. I like that it's a lot of product and although the applicator is rather large, I don't find it difficult to work with. However, for those of you with smaller lips, it may be slightly problematic. Nevertheless, this is not a review post about these glosses, I simply wanted to show you how similar the packaging is!

(I do plan on doing a post including swatches and a full review of the Hard Candy Glossaholic glosses but I'm missing a couple of the colours so I'm just waiting until I can get my hands on all of them to do that post.)
