MAC Sheen Supreme Lipsticks

SheenSupremeLipstick Beauty 300

Gloss is good, but there’s nothing quite as wonderfully, worldly cinematic as a Lipstick- and they’re coming back! We’ve updated formulas to make it all plausible. Sheen Supreme is the combination of the strong, sensually saturated color of, say, Tilda Swinton’s I am Love Milanese Lipstick, leavened with the light feel and clear vibrancy, the see-through sheen of a modern New York City Girl Gloss. Imagine no muddy undertones, gliding in pearl or creme finish, moisturizing with no sticky/tacky feeling. It’s a new medium, with MAC in the lead. This is retro/modern- and devastatingly chic.

These lipsticks are just as described- Slick and moisturizing, not sticky at all, but give a nice lipstick/gloss combo in the way it looks. These remind me a lot of Slimshines, to be honest, but I prefer the small tube that Slimshine had over these. The formula on these feels like a thick chapstick, and it is for the most part fairly sheer- applying too much gives an effect you can kindof see in “Supremely Confident” and “Behave Yourself”. My macro lens doesn’t help the situation (it looks worse than it was) but I wanted the color to be more opaque before realizing that wasn’t the point of these lipsticks. “Look at Her!” Was the only one that really had opaque coverage without effort, and had the most “lipstick” like feel, but I’m going to assume that is because it was the only pearl one I tried.

Favorites: New Temptation (Great way to get into red lipstick, as this is quite sheer for a red but still gives the impact of a red lip), Full Speed, Bare Again.

Available from MAC Cosmetics for $14.50.

    Ooooh I love Bare Again, really pretty natural color. BTW, i know this is so random but have you tried eos shave cream in pomegranate raspberry? I swear it smells EXACTLY like watermelon Jolly Ranchers!

    Awesome, my favourites were the three you said were yours!

    Have you ever looked at any of Quo? They’re a drugstore brand and actually quite good (in lipsticks, shadows, foundations, brushes, everything).

    Bare again is beautiful. But in case I don’t like this formula, does anyone know some normal mac lipstick dupes for Bare again?

    Ooh, pretty! I really want Bare Again and Full Speed, maybe New Temptation too…
    They look really moisturizing and nice.
