The next MAC collection to discuss is Seasonally Supreme, a shade extension for MAC’s Sheen Supreme lipstick formula. The shade names pay homage to Asia’s growing influence in the fashion world.
The collection introduces nine new shades and repromotes three (Insanely It, Bare Again, and Supremely Confident). Because of the packaging/shape of the bullet, I just couldn’t fit all 12 on my arm. Supremely Confident got left out (though I didn’t feel too bad because I swatched it here). I’ll try to swatch these again, and put the similar colors next to one another.
These lipsticks are $14.50 each, and all nine of the new shades are permanent additions to the line (so I’ll also add this photo to the MAC lipstick roundup).
Tea Ceremony is a warm brown-pink creme. Sheer Mandarin is bright orange creme. Blossom Culture is warm pink with tiny gold sparkles. Korean Candy is like fire, an orange-red creme (and if you’ve been reading this blog for long, you can probably guess it’s my favorite). Supreme Style is a more muted pink than Blossom Culture. It’s also shimmery. Fashion City is warm peach-pink creme. Happy Hibiscus (the most similar to Supremely Confident) is white-pink creme. Royal Flower is blue-pink lilac (very cool). Asian Flower is slightly shimmery lavender. Insanely It is fuchsia with magenta, blue, and gold sparkles. Bare Again is warm, brown-pink-nude (it looks a little lighter and a little peachier than Tea Ceremony).
I actually don’t like the packaging of the Sheen Supreme (or Pro Longwear) lipsticks. The bullet is really wide and I find it difficult to apply it neatly to my lips. Still, the formula has an enjoyably balmy feel.
