On the left is Nyx Power lipstick and on the right is Mac Asian Flower.
First up: POWER
My thoughts: Nyx lipstick in Power is highly pigmented for such a light color. It is lavender. Period. Power is different but it works because it's so feminine.
Feel: This is a Nyx Extra Creamy Lipstick and it lives up to it's name. Glides on creamy smooth. I love it.
Next: Asian Flower
My thoughts: Mac Sheen Supreme lipstick in Asian Flower is easily the pinker of the two and I would actually call it more of a violet than a lavender (which is what I was looking for). It's sort of sheer but still really pretty. Not as dramatic as Power.
Feel: I was expecting a more moisturizing feel but it felt only slightly smoother than other lipsticks. I was thinking it would be more velvety smooth.
The Vertict? I bought Asian Flower first, looking for something unique. When I bought Power I was sure I had a dupe on my hands but clearly, they are very different shades. Surprisingly I preferred the Nyx lipstick at a fraction on the cost. Not just because it was the exact color I was looking for, but one of the major deciding factors was the creamy feel of it. Love it.
