In general, I have a preference for creamy and very pigmented lipsticks. However, when the summer heat strikes, wearing something along that line becomes an unbearable idea. MAC has some good new solutions for this problem! The So Supreme Collection includes 6 Sheen Supreme Lipsticks and 8 Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tints this year. Today I’m showing you Sweet Grenadine Sheen Supreme Lipstick!
I personally prefer the packaging of MAC Sheen Supreme Lipsticks to the one of the regular line. It’s glossy and rather hefty. As a matter of fact, it reminds me quite a bit of Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Colors!
Sweet Grenadine is one of this year’s hottest lip colors, a bright orange. It’s not so bright that it falls into the neon category, but it is definitely not a very tame shade!
The formula is very lightweight and buttery. It truly melts onto the lips with a smooth and glossy finish! It’s a lipstick that applies very easily, but it does pack quite a bit of pigment! It does seem sheerer than the original Sheen Supreme Lipsticks from what I can see, but it offers decent coverage and color.
Left: one swipe. Right: built up.
Sweet Grenadine holds up for around 3 hours on my lips. A meal will finish it off, but it will survive a couple of drinks. The best part? It’s moisturizing!
Here I’m wearing one swipe of Sweet Grenadine:
Bottom line: If you’re looking for a great summer lipstick, take a look at MAC Sweet Grenadine Sheen Supreme Lipstick! It’s a great way to ease into wearing bright orange. The lightweight, glossy finish as well as moisturization makes it great for warmer weather!
Random question: do you guys wear makeup to the airport? As a general rule I don’t, but I needed to get these photos done before catching my flight to Taipei. I removed it after dinner was served, and all in all the experience wasn’t bad. Still, I don’t think I’ll make a habit of wearing makeup to the airport. I was a little paranoid about not having cleaned my face properly (I used Bioderma, because everything else requires a lot of water and effort)!
