So I’ve been massively unwell recently. Living with my condition I’m often sick but this has been a particularly awful run. My husband is a sweetheart and yesterday a surprise he ordered arrived!
He ordered me MAC sheen supreme lipstick in Asian flower, I’ve been eyeing this shade for a while now and when It arrived I was pumped and impressed that he listens when I jabber on about makeup.
I’ve never tried a sheen supreme lipstick before, I thought it was just going to be a little bit more moisturising than their standard lipsticks.
When I opened the box I was pleasantly surprised at how different the tube looked. It’s tall and thin and made of metal, it feels quite weighty which is nice and it has the standard black finish. It’s nice to have something a little different from the standard bullet shape, it makes it feel like it’s more than just the normal. It does cost a little more than their normal lipsticks so it’s nice that the outer does feel more expensive.
When you take off the lid the lipstick inside is flat, similar to how urban decays lipsticks are. I actually like this style as I find they apply so nicely to the cupids bow!
When I first mentioned this shade to my husband it was because I was looking for a lavender colour, they describe this as a lavender cream shade and all of the swatches online looked like exactly what I wanted. I applied it and the shade was not what I hoped. Don’t get me wrong I adore it to pieces, it’s stunning! But it’s not lavender I find it’s more pink. Compared to Too faced melted fuchsia it’s practically a rose pink!
The first thing i noticed when I applied it was how beautiful the formula was. It’s silky, smooth and soft. It is a very buildable formula, you can apply a small amount for it to almost look like a tinted gloss and add a few layers for it to be a opaque colour. It feels like if a lipstick and a lipgloss had a baby. It is incredible! It’s so light I cannot wait for the summer, no sticky or heavy lipsticks anymore! And no more slimey or tacky lipgloss! I’ve got my sheen supreme!
These cost £16.50 here which I believe is around $25 but they may cost less over in the states. And there are 8 beautiful shades to choose from! I know I’m going to be collecting them all as they are so stunning! I’ve already told my husband that with Mother’s Day fast approaching he needs to get his order in!
So I would completely reccomend this product! It’s pretty much pushed aside all of my other lip products and demanded to be number one. I adore it!
As always I hope everyone has a fantastic week and if you want to check out my looks my instagram name is @hippiewithahipproblem
