FOTD: Super Sweet

I dug back into the the MAC Chen Man Collection, and used half of the mineralize duo Super Sweet for this look:

MAC: Chen Man

By now, you guys have likely seen – touched – tested and swatched the MAC Chen Man Collection. I’ve been swamped with work lately, and I’m just getting around to really taking a look at it. Here’s what came home with me:

Both Fluid Lines (Blacktrack & Waveline, which are permanent), Brow Set (permanent), both lipsticks and lip glasses, both pigments, clear lipglass (thinner in consistency than its original counterpart), Beauty Powder, and all three Eye Shadows.

Clear Brow Set
Fluidline in Blacktrack
Fluidline in Waveline
 Lipstick & Lipglass
Budding Love
Lipstick & Lipglass
Force Of Love
Reflects Blue
Naval Blue
 Clear Gloss
(for eyes/lips/face)
Beauty Powder
Play it Proper
Mineralize Eye Shadows
Love Cycle
Pink Union

I felt like this post was much too long to include swatches. So I’m going to do those in a separate post. I have to say, I rather like this collection.  For the most part, I find it highly wearable, and I feel like there’s something in it for everyone. The Beauty Powder is pale and best suited to fair skinned beauties. The lipsticks, despite their bold color, can be sheered out. I found out (happily) that I can wear both colors, even with my warm skin tone. The lipglass is non sticky (YIPPEE!) and easy to wear.

MAC did good with this one. Yep.
