MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick ♡ Sweet Grenadine -- Review + Lip Swatch

I am totally new to the whole MAC Sheen Supreme range even thou it has been around for a long time, I guess I have been living under a rock all these time. 

Today I am reviewing the MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick in shade Sweet Grenadine, I purchased this along with Playtime when I spot these in a makeup sale group back in May 2014. I have been loving and using Sweet Grenadine a lot, I give it more attention than Playtime, so I feel like it is the right time to give it a full review and let you all know what I have been loving and/or disliking about this lipstick.

MAC Sweet Grenadine is one of the lipstick released with the So Supreme collection back in 2013, there are six lipsticks from this collection, one being a permanent shade and the rest are Limited Edition.

I have double check on the MAC website and it seems like both shades I got from this collection (Playtime and Sweet Grenadine) are Limited Edition, it's no wonder I hardly see these beauties around.

MAC Sweet Grenadine Lipstick looks like a crazy bright orange from the tube, never thought I would be brave enough to wear a bright orange lipstick out. I do own a few bright lipsticks, orange, red, purple, you name it; but I have only worn it at home or when I create theme makeup looks for my blog.

The reason why I have never been afraid of wearing Sweet Grenadine out is because it has a semi-opaque coverage, you can lightly dab the color on for a subtle tint or you can build up the color to a bright orange. I have been wearing it in-between a tint and a full-on bright color and I've been getting a lot of compliment on how beautiful the color looks on my skin tone.

♥ I love that MAC Sweet Grenadine has a glossy finish, the lipstick feels very lightweight and moisturizing during wear, the glossi-ness doesn't slides around, smear and wear-off fast; so that is a big YES formula for me. Sweet Grenadine is creamy, smooth and it glides on the lips effortlessly, it smells like vanilla, like all other MAC lipsticks and this one worn well for five hours on me.

I don't think there is anything I dislike about MAC Sweet Grenadine, it's pretty much everything a dry lips girl wish for. The formula is very comfortable to wear, I could apply without the exfoliate and lip balms beforehand and it would still apply as smooth as if I have already done the exfoliate process.

I kind of feel bad because MAC Sweet Grenadine Lipstick is no longer available to purchase on the official MAC website and I get that a lot of you hesitate when purchasing MAC on eBay or any makeup sales group, it's a big risk buying MAC elsewhere than the official website as there are a lot of fakes and you can never tell if they are real unless if you have been studying the difference of a real and fake 24/7 of your life.

I do recommend makeupemporium1 on eBay, she is based in Canada and she sells a lot of Limited Edition MAC that you can no longer purchase on the MAC website. A lot of people has asked me how do I know if the products she sells is authentic and how would I know if she's not a scammer?! I have had plenty of great experience purchasing MAC from her, all products are legit and I actually found her eBay via specktra, she was highly recommend by a lot of the MAC obsessives in the forum, so I decided to take a risk and give her a try; glad to say I am very happy with every single purchase I have made through her.

Here, if you trust me, you can purchase MAC Sweet Grenadine Lipstick from eBay seller: makeupemporium1

  1. Oh dear me, I may have to check out this line from them in the future. I love everything you've said about it, I too love a good glossy finish, moist formula and good punch of color! I too have lips that dry out easily and peel quite a lot! This seems fantastic! And you have gorgeously shaped lips Kay!
