These Six MAC Moody Blooms Sheen Supreme Lipsticks Gleam Like a Dream

Like deep green leaves bathed in the light of a full moon, these beautiful bulbs of tuberous terrific-ness gleam! — but not like high-shine metallics or frosts. Their sheen is more muted and shrewd than that…

I can really see it in the six Moody Blooms collection Sheen Supreme Lipsticks ($17 each).

While bronzy plum Moody Bloom and pinkish coral Phosphorescent radiate a few watts of warmth, most of these lecherous lippies live on the cool- and neutral-toned sides of the garden, which makes sense to me. I think it balances well with the warm earthy copper, brown, and warm pinkish gold eye makeup in the release.

As for the semi-opaque Sheen Supreme Lipstick formula, it still lets some of my natural lip color peek through, so these definitely aren’t sheer, and my lips like how they feel — plush, creamy and super soft, almost like a gloss.

As they fade on my lips over the course of about two hours, they leave behind a lovely stain — particularly the brighter colors, like pinkish coral Phosphorescent, my favorite of the bunch, and dark bluish pink Pheromonal.

Unfortunately, they aren’t the most moisturizing lip products in the glam garden, but I think they’ve improved over the original MAC Sheen Supremes released in 2011.

Those back then sucked all of the H2O out of my lips, but I think this batch in Moody Blooms is a little better.

They don’t completely dehydrate my lips, but if I lived in a desert, I think I’d probably apply a layer of lip balm first. I wore Phosphorescent a lot up in Napa last weekend, and it was hot and dry! By the end of the weekend trip, my pucker was starting to get a little parched.

With the exception of deep berry Venomous Violet, the solitary online exclusive shade, I think these are all great swipe-and-go products.

Venomous Violet, though, goes on a little patchy and uneven, and it’s a tad too eager to hop into my lip lines. When I apply just the littlest bit from the tube and pat it down with a finger, it’s better, but I think it would still benefit from a layer of liner.

Among this bouquet of Sheen Supreme blooms, the brights — Phosphorescent, Pheromonal and Lust Extract — are the standouts for me. Check ‘em out when the MAC Moody Blooms collection arrives at MAC counters and stores June 26 (online June 24).

If you happen to see the Baxter Jacket in your size, OOH! — it’s super cute! I have the white one with black trim. Very Chanel, and it’s easy to dress up or down (NOTE: it stretches out a little, so if can’t decide between two sizes, you might want to go with the one that’s smaller).

Happy shopping. :)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    The shades are pretty but if there is something I don’t like on make up is sheen.

  2. fancie says:

    Man those pinks are really pretty! The formula doesn’t seem like it’ll work for me but I guess that’s a good thing. The last thing I need is another big haul lol

    A little too glossy for me (I love matte!), but great for those who want to experiment with bolder colours without going the full way.

  5. Those shades look pretty! Somehow I’ve never tried the Sheen Supreme lipsticks even though I remember swatching some shades in the store and even liking one called Zen Rose I think. Time to pay another visit to the MAC store. Wondering when these will launch in Japan.

    Phosphorescent is my favorites among these! a juicy coral always grabs my attention. The formula although isn’t something I am a fan of!

    I love these colors, especially Pheromonal and Phosphorescent. Oh and the dresses you picked are beautiful!

    I also prefer Pheromonal and Phosphorescent because the colors are great and they read a little more opaque than some of the others. Can’t believe they launched Venomous with such an uneven formula. Love the KS dresses you bought. I’m afraid to check out the sale. I saw a number of bags I wanted and I’m not sure I can resist!

    oooh i love moody bloom on you! thanks for the great swatches Karen. May I suggest that apart from your close ups you also do the whole face pics with your lippies? It sounds weird but I like to see the overall look that lipsticks may give to your face. Love your blog! <3 I read it religiously!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Yelena,

      Gurl, I was probably having a bad hair day or had a big pimple on my forehead, hence the lack of full face shots. I try to do them when I can because I agree with you that it helps gauge the whole effect better, but I can’t/don’t always have time to include them. I try though.

      But THANK YOU FOR BEING SO POLITE! :) Seriously, some folks don’t always put it as nicely as you did. I have also gotten things like, “You are so stupid ugly lips show full face makeup!!!”

      Thank you for reading the blog and commenting, Yelena. Have a great week.
