So if you follow my blog then you probably saw that I picked up Mac’s Force of Love lipstick when it launched here in Trinidad. I’m only now getting around to doing this review so bear with me. By the way, this lipstick sold out in just one day on the Mac website!
Mac’s Force of Love is a part of the Mac Chen Man: Love and Water collection. Force of Love is described as a vivid honeysuckle pink by Mac. In my opinion it’s a bright coral-pink. And when I say bright I’m not exaggerating this lipstick is near neon. It’s just an amazingly beautiful color.
In terms of formula this lipstick is a matte but it’s one of the new matte finishes from Mac so it’s not drying or difficult at all. In fact this lipstick applies well and gives complete, opaque coverage. It also lasts a really long time on the lips as most mattes do. I get about 5-6 hours normal wear. Less if I’m eating or drinking.
One thing to note about this lipstick is that it does tend to cling to any flaking or dry skin so it’s very important to exfoliate your lips prior to using this lipstick. A lip primer is always a good idea or simply let a lip balm sit on your lips prior.
Overall I LOVE this lipstick. Actually I’m obsessed with it. I’ve been wearing this everywhere for the last two weeks. It’s definitely a statement lipstick that’s not for the faint of heart. I love pairing this with a sexy cat eye and my favorite peachy-pink blush.
What do you think about this lipstick? Were you able to get your hands on it? If not, I have a surprise for you….
