The six MAC Moody Blooms collection Sheen Supreme Lipsticks ($17 each)
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).
Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Moody Bloom, a bronzed plum
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.
Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Phosphorescent, an electric pinkish coral
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.

Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Lust Extract, an electric violet
Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Quite the Thing!, a deep blueish plum
Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Venomous Violet, a deep berry (available exclusively online at maccosmetics.com)
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.
