MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick - Dreaminess

Just a quick little review!
I picked up yet another pink lipstick, this time from the new Mineralize Rich line and so far I'm enjoying it! This one is in dreaminess (soft cool pink cream according to MAC) and it's creamy and moisturizing like the Sheen Supreme lipsticks but not as glossy! Also, I have to reapply this more often than the sheen supreme  but that's ok! This color is darker and not quite as opaque as Royal Azalea (sheen supreme) and probably a little more wearable in that it's not as intense!

I only have my iphone for pics for the time being (sorry) this pic is taken in natural light without flash

I didn't want to do a review but I have to add that I don't "love" these nyx shadows I used. They didn't blend well and were rather chaulky.. You can sort of tell by the swatches I posted!

Have a great day!!

MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick: Royal Azalea

(So, I haven't exactly blogged in a while and I don't even know if anybody will read this lol but here it goes!)
I am really impressed with the Sheen Supreme Formula from MAC. I'm a lipstick junkie and MAC is probably my favorite place to hoard lipstick from :) Lately I'm on a huge pink kick and seem to be buying only pink or nude based lipsticks so I tried this blue based pink on in store and loved it! It's very moisturizing and creamy (like it claims to be) but it wears surprisingly well and even leaves a subtle tint on your lips after its worn off without actually staining the lips if that makes sense! MAC describes the Sheen supreme line by the following:
"combining the color impact of a lipstick with the shine sheen of a lipglass, Sheen Supreme creates the perfect hybrid with no compromise. Lightweight, non-sticky, slick to apply, and comfortable to wear"
I have to agree with their claim! It has the classic MAC/vanilla scent which I love!
