MAC is really hitting the bulls-eye with amazing and vivid shades for Spring 2012. Their newest hue comes to us via the ChenMan Love and Water Collection - Force of Love.
What the MAC website has to say about ChenMan Lipstick:
A limited edition Lipstick that in shade, finish and spirit is the perfect soulmate for the M∙A∙C Chenman palette. The Chinese character for love, depicted on the outer sleeve, was created by Chen Man.
3 g / 0.1 US oz
Force of Love (vivid honeysuckle pink) is an intense matte coral hued pink and pairs up well with the coordinating lipglass from this same collection. VERY pigmented and absolutely stunning for the hot months. It is extremely important to exfoliate your lips before using this shade. I took pics without exfoliating and it was just not pretty. You must exfoliate so this shade can be smooth and luxe looking, rather than cakey and cracked.
In the swatch photo above I decided to compare Force of Love to two recently released MAC shades I thought it would be similar to - Viva Glam Nicki and Watch Me Simmer. Nicki has more of a bubblegum pink hue to it, while Watch Me Simmer is a tad more coral (though pretty close).
ChenMan Lipstick retails for $14.50 and is limited edition to the Chenman Collection. Currently this lipstick is sold out on the MAC website, but you can also purchase at your local MAC counter or store. Please call to check on availability before you make the trip, this lipstick was very popular and they may be sold out.
