From MAC Chen Man Love and Water Collection, I picked up the two new lipsticks, Force of Love and Budding Love. Read on for my long due review and swatches!
Described as a “vivid honeysuckle pink”, MAC Force of Love Lipstick is a gorgeous matte vibrant pink with coral undertones and no doubt one of my favorites this spring. It is a tinge pinker than MAC Watch Me Simmer and MAC Red Full Stop yet not as pink as MAC Viva Glam Nicki. It applied evenly with excellent pigmentation and did not feel drying at all. Love love love!
MAC Budding Love Lipstick is a very cool-toned pink with a touch of lavender in the Lustre formula. It is a little sheerer than Force of Love and just like most Lustre lipsticks, it left behind a wet-looking sheen. My only complaint? It did not go on evenly and required a bit of layering to cover my lips completely. Nonetheless, the color is pretty and similar to MAC Viva Glam Gaga, another Lustre that I like.
What do you guys think? Did you pick up anything from the Chen Man collection?
