Filed under THINGS I NEVER EXPECTED IN THIS LIFETIME: that I would find cat hair in my bellybutton, that I would ever gush over a panini press (“DUUUUUDE, that thing has seriously changed my life!”), that I would be trying to buy pink satin culottes in 2013, that I would ever derive such joy from a brush tip lipgloss applicator like the one on the new MAC Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tints ($20 each, and available in eight shades).

Click-y pen packaging, oh yeah!

It’s not like it’s a newfangled invention or anything… Versions of these brush pen glosses have been floating around for a hot minute, but just in case you’ve been in deep space cryosleep for the past 50 years and just woke up today, to use ‘em, all you do is twist the bottom of the pen, listen for the click-click-click, and watch with glee as gloss gushes from the opposite end. Then, apply to lips. :)

Wearing these glosses is like getting to that part in a relationship with someone when you finally feel comfortable wearing your rattiest bra around them, and no longer feel the need to don that itchy, push-up Victoria’s Secret “come hither” number every single night.

Not to say that these Sheen Supreme Tints are like old, ratty bras… They’re just really, REALLY easy and comfortable. Just twist, apply with or without a mirror, and that’s that.

Maybe I’m just way too easily amused (that’s for sure, ha!), but sh*t is hella fun. WAY more entertaining than the regular old doe-foot applicators on squeeze tubes, like painting in eighth-grade art class, where looking back…I’m pretty sure my teacher, Mr. Freed, was a big-time hippy stoner.

Anywho! You’ll have to be OK with sheer glosses to appreciate the wonders of these Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tints, because MAC purposefully dialed down the pigment level of all eight shades.

MAC K-Wow Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tint, a soft cool pink

In hard-core makeup circles, “sheer” can be a dirty word, but I think there’s definitely a time and place for sheer gloss. I use ‘em when I don’t want to/can’t invest a lot of time on my lips, like when I’m having a day where I just want to do my brows, tinted moisturizer, concealer and cream blush.

MAC Heart & Seoul Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tint, a warm peach

Basically, these are like sheerer, slightly less sticky Lipglasses in brush pen applicator disguise. As for wear time, they last from 2-4 hours on me, depending on what and whether I’m eating or drinking, and they have MAC’s classic vanilla flavor and scent.

MAC Kiss-Kiss Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tint, a cool peach cream

I really don’t think one would need to hoard more than one or two of ‘em, though, because at a point, some of them start to look alike, especially if you have pigmented lips like mine.

MAC Simply Wow Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tint, a mid-tone cool mauve

I vote for wearing a color that matches the blush you like to wear on your “dressed down” makeup days. I usually go for peachy pinks or corals, so I’d go with Heart & Soul (a warm peach) or Kis-Kiss (a cool peach cream).

MAC Blushing Berry Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tint, a mid-tone cool red

If you’re into pinks, there’s warm pink Bubble Gum or cool pink K-Wow…

MAC Glorious Intent Sheen Supreme Lipglass

Glorious Intent Sheen Supreme Lipglass, a warm plum

But if berries are your thing, there’s Simply Wow (a cool, mid-tone mauve), Gwi-Yo-Mi (a mid-tone Raspberry) or Glorious Intent (a warm plum).

And if you’re a red-lovin’ lass, look to Blushing Berry, a cool, mid-tone red.

      Thank you! It’s an H&M find from a million years ago. I’m actually surprised that it doesn’t have more holes, LOL. You’d look great in this color.

    Not much of a fan of lip gloss because of my thick lips but those shades are great.

  6. These look really fresh and pretty on you! Love Gwi-Yo-Mi!

    Shockingly I don’t plan on picking one of these up. Although I do like the applicator on this (I’m not really one for doe foot applicators).

    what are you wearing on your cheeks? the blush/highlighter look incredible. also, you look wonderful in all of these! i am on the hunt for a good berry/raspberry red. i am blonde, moderately fair (too pale for mac nw15 but almost never the lightest shade anywhere else) with freckles and red cheeks, so i only seem to pull off nudes/peachy shades on my cheeks and nudes/nude pinks on the lips with the occasional red.

    Hi Karen!

    I have to agree with the others that this colour of sweater on you really steals the show! I was curious about this lip glass hybrid, so thanks for the (as always) excellent review! Curious what eye shadow(s) you’re wearing here. It’s an absolutely lovely eye!

    Loving these, I might have to break my spending ban for these.
    Also loving the pictures- every color suits you!
