If there is one thing M-A-C Cosmetics knows how to do, it’s make a great lipstick. Bold lips are back, and here to stay, and so M-A-C has updated formulas to make your lipstick dreams come true. The result is Sheen Supreme. As M-A-C puts it, they’re: ” a combination of the strong, sensually saturated colour of, say, Tilda Swinton’s I Am Love Milanese Lipstick, leavened with the light feel and clearvibrancy, 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 feel. It’s a new medium, with M∙A∙C in the lead. This is retro/modern – and devastatingly chic.”
Here’s the rundown:
Supremely Confident -Pale nude
Bare Again Pinky -neutral beige
Can’t Get Enough -Beige neutral
Behave Yourself -Light blue pink
Gotta Dash! – Pale clean coral
Full Speed – Bright clean yellow pink
Insanely It – Watermelon pink
Ultra Darling – Mid-tone yellow pink *a universally flattering deep rose, almost red, but not quite, so you can wear it during the daytime and not feel overly dramatic. Very pretty!
New Temptation – Vivid blue red
Quite the Thing! – Deep blue plum
Impressive Neutral gilded plum * this rosed-plum is saved friom being too cool or Wintry by a bit of brown. I lovew the moist and glossy look that is easy to wear, no matter what your complexion. a
Look at Her! – Metallic copper *metallics don’t flatter everyone, but this is what I’d call an ideal “beach lipstick,” gold and bronze shimmery metallic that looks more gold than copper. Sexiest on redheads and strawberry blondes.
Can’t Resist – Golden purplish red *this color is more opaque than some in the collection, and because it looks very deep in the tube, I wondered how it would be on my lips, But to my surprise, it leaves a saturated, creamy, plum berried color that while deep, still manages to look elegant, not like it belongs in a goth fantasy. The shimmery finish looks very metallic in the tube, but it’s mostly shimmery, not uber-metallic, on lips.
Good to be Bad – Deep burgundy
Suggested Retail Price $14.50 U.S./$17.50 CDN
