L wrote a few weeks back about her Mac purchases when we went for a make over before a night out for her birthday. I love getting my make up done in Mac they do such a great job. I really wanted to get Sunny Seoul lipstick but it had sold out.
Instead I picked up my first Sheen Supreme lipstick. I’m so glad that Sunny Seoul had sold out as I love this lipstick and love this formula. The sheen supreme lipsticks have different packaging to the normal formulas and I prefer it. It’s still kept to the sleep black with white writing but this packaging is metal. I prefer this as it’s more secure as I’ve cracked a few or the normal Mac lipstick lids meaning I can’t keep them in my handbag anymore.
I picked up the shade Fashion city. It’s an orange, peachy type of shade. I really love this. It’s not normally a shade I’d go for. I tend to stick to pinks, reds and nude shades.
The Sheen Supreme formula reminds me of the Revlon Lip Butters. It almost melts onto the lips and isn’t dragging onto them.
It does have a different bullet shape (the MUA told us once we get to the bottom use a lip brush as there is about an extra third left in there when you think it’s run out) I find it just as easy to apply with this shape.
It’s quite a sheer almost glossy lipstick. I’ve been wearing it all the time since I got it as it’s perfect for day time. It also works great paired with a smokey eye for a night out.
Taken with flash, excuse my messy application. The shade on the lips is very moisturising. I like the glossy finish too it as lately I’m finding nude shades look better on me with a subtle glossy finish.
In natural light you can see the orange tones to the lipstick more. I think this shade would look great on anyone and it’s great to have in the handbag as it goes with most make up looks. The Sheen Supreme lipsticks cost £14.50 so they are 50p more than the normal ones. I love the formula though so can’t wait to get more of them.
Here’s my make up from the night out. My lashes hadn’t stuck properly on the corners or the eyes so you can see that, but I love the combination of the purple smokey eye with Fashion City. How gorgeous is L’s make up! I’ve been rocking coloured liner a lot since this. You can see my current favourite one here.
I loved how she did my brows. They looked so amazing!!! I really need to get a new brush for my brows I think and practice more on them. What brush do you use for your brows?
As I was wearing a black dress I went with a purple toned smokey eye, I can’t wait to try this look out again. I think L and I will be visiting Mac for Make Overs again soon!!
