MAC Chen Man Love and Water

Hey guys!

This is just a little updated post on the MAC Chen Man Love Water Collection as yesterday I didn’t have any images to go along with the release info. My original thoughts about the colors used in the promo image have changed slightly as it does seem many of the shades are actually in the collection but they look way more neon on her lids than they do in the pan. I’d say the shades are more pastel here versus the promo model’s lids and lips looking more bright neon. What say you?

Take a look tell me what you think, keep in mind the post reads as it did yesterday just the images changed!

Chen Man has teamed up with MAC to create an unusual color collection.

I have some musings on this one, take a look, tell me what you think!

Without a doubt I love the sultry aquatic notes in this collection. A few years ago I’d have been all over these shades but blue is a little difficult to pull off sometimes particularly if you have darker circles.

The promo image is utterly odd as none of the cooler pastels on her eyes don’t seem like shades featured in the collection. Hmmm…

OMFG anyone see the Vow? It was like Chuck and Sarah all over again! Channing was just sitting there pleading with Rachel Bilson, tears in his eyes, “Please bish, remember me..” and she just treated him like complete and utter garbage. I was torn between wanting to punch her out and just grinning happily because she’s as cute as a button!

Most frustrating movie evahs!

    As much as a makeup junkie I am (I have my own 8 drawer storage system), MAC isn’t a company I can get into. I own about three cosmetics from them, all lips:
    Russian Red l/g (why so sticky!/!?)
    Lovin’ Lollipop (some green sheen lipstick glaze. love)
    Smoked Purple (vampy dark lipstick)

    But I love Chen Man’s work. Awesome vodka ads and other. I also have about over 1000 bottles of nail polish. MAC’s so hit or miss with their np.

    Huh, not what I was expecting, but in a good way. I think these colors will be really pretty for spring! Side note, I can’t get excited about MAC collections anymore. I’ve only started following them since the Champale (spelling?) collection and honestly I’m tired of trying to keep up. There’s just so many and it’s burnt me out on the brand.

    I really like the honeysuckle shade of lipstick but highly doubt I will be able to pull it off. Will try though 🙂

    I also love Chen Man’s photo and graphic work but I find some of these colors to be a bit boring and not really similar to that work, however maybe they will prove better in person.

    Oooo me want the the fluidline in Waveline, all the lippies and the pigment in Naval Blue. I love MAC’s mineral shadows, but these look a bit too similar to stuff already released. But who knows, I am such a ho for the mineral stuff I might cave if I see them in person.

    I’m not a MAC fan girl (sorry!), but I love that the collection is inspired by water. I swear I was a mermaid in a past life. I LOVE the water! I want the nail polishes, the new fluidline, and the shadows. Nothing else is really tempting. I don’t like MAC lipglasses and i’m not a lipstick girl! I might pick up the gloss if its not too sticky.
