Company’s Description

These sensuous limited edition shades of Lipglass are a perfect pairing for M∙A∙C Chenman Lipsticks. For a softer, more playful look, wear solo. The Chinese character for love is depicted in Chen Man’s calligraphy on the outer sleeve.

This review is for the 2 new Lipglass colors releasing with MAC’s upcoming Chen Man Love and Water Collection. This post includes photographs and swatches of the following colors:

  • Force of Love: Vivid honeysuckle pink
  • Budding Love: Pale lavender

The Body Shop

Packaging: 9/10

These Lipglasses come in standard MAC packaging with doe-foot applicators. The tubes are made of plastic and can easily be taken on-the-go. The outer box packaging has a watercolor design on it.

Quality: 8.5/10

Force of Love is a bright, coral-pink color with pink and silver pearls.

Budding Love is a fairly standard blue-based pink color with light pink pearls. The color gives off the slightest hint of lavender.

Both of these colors have great payoff and pigmentation and pack a decent punch of finely-milled shimmer.

The formula is smooth without being noticeably sticky. They will give a medium level of moisture to your lips. The consistency isn’t as thin or watery as MAC’s Sheen Supreme Lipglasses, but certainly isn’t thick either.

The problem with these 2 colors is that they settle noticeably into lip lines, which leaves somewhat of an unflattering finish.

I get about 2 hours of wear out of these Lipglasses before needing to re-apply.

Ease of Use: 9/10

These are very easy to work with because the doe-foot applicator gives you a precise application and the colors are so sheer that you can apply them quickly without worrying how accurate you’re being.

Price: 9/10

These are the same size (4.8 grams) as regular MAC Tinted Lipglasses and the same price ($14.50).
