MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection Lipstick Swatches: Lipstick Love

Hi Friends!!

This is a quick post and may be not much needed one.Since Marilyn Monroe collection from MAC just came and was sold out in few hours but if you are lucky you might find few lipsticks at your nearby store so here are the swatches for you.Well I was not that lucky..MM collection was released in stores on 4th oct and I went on 5th..everything was gone...lipsticks were not even kept on display,I had to ask for testers so I could swatch and decide which one I should go hunting for!!

Purely on the basis of swatching them in store:

Charmed I'm sure: is matte finish but it is not that drying and good pigmentation.
Love Goddess: good pigmentation and not drying since it is satin finish
Deeply adored:is matte finish and I found it to be a little dry,I had a dry
dragging feeling while swatching it on my hand.

Scarlet Ibis:very bright orange red,good pigmentation and slightly more dry than
Charmed I'm sure but better than deeply adored.

All of them had some sweet scent..while they were swatched on my hand I had a feeling
that I am standing in a cup cake store.I couldn't spot specifically which one was smelling like what.The smell was definitely not irritating(atleast for me!)

When I swatched Love Goddess I had a feeling that it is very similar to impassioned so I swatched them side by side. They are close but I felt That impassioned has more pink in it.

Here are the pics!enjoy!

ps: the pictures were clicked in store from my phone so please excuse the picture quality
