MAC Chen Man Love and Water Collection -Budding Love Lipstick

               I have talked about all of my fabulous friends before right? Of course I have!! But really, I have some of the most awesome friends EVER!! My friends Robert and Michelle came over last week and brought me a gift. So sweet!! I have not been checking the new collections from MAC out lately because I have been low on fundage and did not want to see anything I loved but could not afford. However I did see this gorgeous color from the Chen Man Love and Water Collection and fell in love!!

              Budding Love was a limited edition color and is sold out on the MAC website. I am sure you could find it on Ebay though. MAC describes Budding Love as a pale lavender.
                  I freaking LOVE the smell, taste and texture of MAC lipsticks. I resisted becoming a MAC lover just because it seems so expensive but I am over that. The lipsticks are far superior to any that I have tried and at $14.50 they are not to expensive for what you get.


 Natural Light

             I really like this color!! I have worn it a few times with a neutral face but I can't seem to find an eye look that goes with these lips!! Any suggestions? I was thinking a black smoky eye but then thought I may look like a stripper. Hmmmmmmmm. Help!! Also, if you are a reader you know my skin tone and looks, what MAC lipsticks do I need???

Thanks for reading,


  1. I haven't tried this one.. but I just bought a MAC lipstick and I love it!! I got Blankety, kind of a nudey pink! The smell is amazing and it goes on insanely smooth!!!

  2. hi! i just stumbled upon your website and saw this.im actually wearing it now with a brown smokey eye. im a makeup artist and usually when i wear or do light pinks/lavenders i pair it with pink cheeks and brown/gray smokey eyes. what i did today was put MAC's Soba all over my lid, Brun in my outer v area, and as a transition color i used Soft Brown. for my brow highlight i used Blanc Type and i put a bit of Naked Lunch in my inner corner (all shadows by MAC). for liner i used Urban Decays 24/7 liquid liner in Perversion (just a very thin line) and finished off with my favorite mascara. on my cheeks i used MAC's Pinch o' Peach and highlighted with MAC's msf in Soft and Gentle. then just put on my beloved Budding Love and topped it with the lip glass in the same shade. hope this helps! :)

  3. This does help quite a bit!! Thank you!! I do not have any of those colors but I have an extensive eyeshadow collection so I think I will find similar colors and try this exact look out!! Thank you again!!
