MAC SHEEN SUPREME LIPSTICK: NEW TEMPTATION





Hi lovelies! Recently, my sister came home from uni for a few days, and the absolute babe bought this little beauty back for me! If you know me at all, you'll be aware of my undying love for red lipstick - lots of red lipstick, so another to add to my ever growing collection is always welcomed with open arms. This particular lippie is from MAC's Sheen Supreme range and is in the shade 'New Temptation'. I'd never tried any lipsticks from MAC outside of the normal lipstick range, so I was really excited to give this a go.

'New Temptation' is a semi-sheer blue toned red shade. As the formula 'sheen supreme' suggests, it's incredibly glossy on the lips - definitely no need for a gloss on top of this one! The formula is beautifully soft and smooth and it literally feels like a balm on the lips, with the staying power and pigmentation of a lipstick. This has good staying power, particularly without eating or drinking, but on a night out, not drinking is never an option, so after a few cocktails the glossiness has worn off a little, but it definitely does stain the lips a little and keep its colour for a good few hours.

The slight sheerness of this makes this look a little more pink on my lips, still red, but definitely with a pinky tone. I'm definitely a red lipstick girl and you'll rarely catch me wearing anything else on a night out, so for me, this is the perfect in between for when I fancy something a bit different, but still in my red comfort zone! I think this would be perfect for you if you love the look of a red lip, but are a little shy when it comes to a real pillar box red. One fab thing I've found about this is it doesn't seem to like my teeth, which is great news for me, because as much as I love red lippie, I do not love it making me look like I've got gum disease and bleeding teeth. Even applied liberally, this didn't get on my teeth at all - bonus!

Overall, I'd definitely recommend this lipstick, particularly if you fancy a very slightly more subtle red, or just love a super glossy colour!

What do you think? What's your favourite red lipstick, I'd love to know - I'm on a mission to buy all of them.

  8. By the name, I actually didn't expect it to be SO pigmented--but with just enough to gloss to really make your lips look lovely. This color is so gorgeous and I bet it will be wonderful to wear in the spring!

  9. I need to look into this formula of MAC lipstick as I don't know anything about it. What I can say though, is that it looks extremely lovely and glossy, and it's the most gorgeous colour!

  17. A really pretty colour, I'm a big red lipstick fan myself, but nice to have a slightly more subtle shade.
