MAC has three collections releasing March 3 (typical!). The only real collection (and by real, I mean limited edition; different kinds of items) is Jeanius, but MAC is also introducing two products/formulas to their permanent line. Cremeblend blush first made its appearance in Lillyland; now it’s replacing the old creme blushes. And there’s a new lipstick formula on the block: Sheen Supreme.
You might have heard that Sheen Supreme is the replacement for the Slimshine formula. That’s sort of true. Sheen Supreme has a glossy finish, and the formula feels very moisturizing, with a good amount of “slip.” But the Sheen Supremes are more pigmented than the Slimshines were. And though some of the Sheen Supremes have names similar to Slimshines, the colors aren’t alike. (Click here to revisit the Slimshines.)
Supremely Confident is milky beige. Can’t Get Enough is a slightly pinky natural brown with a few sparkles. Bare Again is a brown-peachy-pink. Impressive is mauvey. Ultra Darling is a reddened, watermelon pink. Behave Yourself is cool pale pink with sparkles. Gotta Dash! is peachy coral. Full Speed is bright, warm, plastic-flamingo pink. It’s brighter (more saturated) and more pink than Ultra Darling. Insanely It is a bright, cool pink with pink and blue-sparkles. New Temptation is sheer red. Quite the Thing! is sheer pink-purple with a few violet sparkles. Look at Her! is frosty copper; Can’t Resist is frosty red-brown with gold, multicolored sparkles. Good to Be Bad is a sheer wine.
Sheen Supremes (like all MAC lipsticks) are $14.50. They have the same packaging style as the Pro Longwear lipsticks, and honestly, I’m not a fan. The tube is just too wide; I prefer a “shaped” lipstick bullet.
