MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Bare Again on lips
The MAC Sheen Supreme Lipsticks
OH! I wanted to show you what the new MAC Sheen Supreme Lipsticks look like on my lips. But before that, I should start by saying that I’m on the fence about these lovely new lippies. Yep, I love how they look, but (there’s always a but!) I think they may have a makeup Achilles’ heel…
They suck every molecule of moisture from my lips!
And I don’t understand why. I typically find lipsticks with this kind of creamy, slick texture very hydrating, but these are like my kryptonite — beautiful, creamy kryptonite.
They’re medium coverage with a light vanilla flavor and scent, and I get about two hours of wear time out of them. I’ve used six of the 14 shades ($14.50 each) so far, and by gosh they feel great when they’re applied — smooth, slick and non-sticky. Plus I think they look pretty great with that blinding shiny finish.

But there’s something going on… After a while with them on, my lips start to feel dry. It’s weird; maybe my lips are still getting used to ‘em.
Look at Her!
After a couple of hours with a MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick on my lips, my kisser begins to feels dry and tight, especially along the edges. Starting with a layer of a moisturizing lip balm should help, but that’s an extra step I know I won’t always want to take.
It’s too bad because I REALLY like how these look.
Of course, since every kisser is different, they may feel more moisturizing on yours. I hope so. Expect to see the 14 lipsticks join the MAC permanent line at MAC counters and stores on March 3.
AVAILABILITY: At MAC stores, counters and online March 3 (North America; internationally some time in March)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. I know this is COMPLETELY random (I can’t help it!), but here were four of my favorite things today. What were some of yours?
1. Green tea with milk and honey
It’s weird, but for some reason I think this combination just works. It’s like the Mariah and Nick Cannon of the hot beverage world, nom!
2. This story about feline pickup artists
A recent study showed that cats both adore and manipulate women. Uh…no sh*t.
These researches must have stopped by while I was out, because I’m pretty sure they interviewed Tabs. Seriously, this describes him to a tee. Go science!
3. This classic Motown song by Kim Weston
It’s such a great tune to sing and dance to.
