MAC Sheen Supreme

Ever since I saw the Sheen Supreme collection from Temptalia, I hurried to MAC Rockwell to check if they already have it. They only had a few colors and no testers. I wanted to buy on that day because I was so excited but since there were no testers, I had to say no. 

When my brother went to Bangkok, I asked him to buy some for me. He brought home two colors for me - Bare Again and Impressive. Then when a friend was in the States for holiday, I also asked her to buy some for me and she got me three - Full Speed, Good to Be Bad and New Temptation.





Here are the swatches:

Bare Again
Bare Again - Impressive

Bare Again
Definitely a MLBB color. Great for everyday use and when you have heavy eye make up. It makes a good gloss too without being overly glossy and it's not too sticky. It's color is somewhat peachy but even if you apply it a couple of times, the color would still be sheer.

Impressive
Impressive
As you can see, Impressive is definitely a lot darker than Bare Again. When applied thickly, it becomes a very dark shade of rose. It's also very glossy without being sticky. 


Full Speed
New Temptation - Full Speed - Good to Be Bad

New Temptation - Full Speed - Good to Be Bad

This is a bright pink but with like a bright orange color. It's super loud and a very summery color. Love it. 


New Temptation

 What I can say about New Temptation is that it's a very healthy, young and vibrant red. It's not too dark or too sheer. The color pay off is great.
Good to Be Bad

Good to Be Bad

Good to Be Bad is such a deep color. As you can see on the tube, it's very dark, almost black but it's a really deep plum. I love to wear this on nigh outs. I tried wearing a very thin application of this one and it's good too.

Likes:
  • Color is superb. What you see on the tube is what will go to your lips.
  • Because it's creamy and moisturizing, it covers the lips fully and the lines won't show. 
  • Glossy without being too sticky
  • It's MAC!
Dislikes:
  • The staying power is not that long since it's very creamy.
  • Also because it's creamy, with one application, you'll notice the shrink on the tube. I don't think these will last me a long time. Sayang. 
  • In the Philippines, it's expensive at PHP1000 a tube while in Bangkok and US, it's around PHP700 only. WHYYY?
