MAC Cosmetics recently launched a collection with Beijing-born fashion photographer, Chen Man. The collection is inspired by her infatuation with love and water, yin and yang, pink and blue. The collection photos are absolutely gorgeous, but I was only tempted to purchase the lipsticks. The lipsticks are my favorite MAC products I've purchased in a while and like nothing I currently own.
MAC Budding Love ($14.50) is a lustre lipstick that is described as a pale lavender. I'm not a huge fan of lustre lipsticks because they tend to wear off quickly on me. I literally get fading after an hour or so. This one, however, wore three hours and seemed to have more pigment than a few others. I love the shade of Budding Love. I have been on the hunt for the perfect lavender lipstick for Spring and BAM! here it is. I probably should have purchased backups of these two shades since they are limited edition. This shade is definitely one of those you have to try before you buy. I don't think it will work on every complexion. Sadly, this one also sold out super fast.
