OVERALL, Cremeteam introduces several nice shades of Cremesheen lipsticks to the permanent line, and they also launched limited edition Cremesheen glasses, which left me wanting. Cremesheen is a finish of lipstick that MAC introduced to us last year, and the finish might be described as fairly pigmented color with subtle sheen and low frost. They don’t have shimmer as far as I could tell either. The new shades of Cremesheen lipsticks add a nice variety of color the permanent lipstick range, and I definitely found myself liking the colors a lot more than some of the limited edition lipsticks from the past few collections.
As far as the new Cremesheen glasses go, I just can’t get on that train. Every single one of them is sheer in color, with some varying in pigmentation (the real test will be lip swatches, which I will do, but probably not until tonight, FYI). The finish and texture of the new glosses is almost buttery and quite creamy, so they do feel nice on the lips. For the price and quantity you get, I find it difficult to even recommend them, because the price alone just grates on my nerves. I’ll put a little price analysis behind the cut, so you can read that if you desire

Too Dolly Palette swatches and product photos for you! Now, to focus on and study for Managerial Accounting and research and figure out my topic for my 30-page law paper! I really wish I didn’t have school to contend with on a daily basis.
Some Notes: Stately Black is different than Stately Black released prior; it’s pretty much a lustre-ish, gritty dark gray shadow with silver flecks. At least, the original Stately Black was an intense gold-flecked black. All of the four shadows felt a little chalky to me–even Romping–and Too Dolly reminds me of Meadowland eyeshadow from Madame B. circa 2006 (I think).
See, I make good on my promises, right?! This post includes swatches of the two Tinted Lip Conditioners as well as the six Lipglasses from MAC’s Hello Kitty Collection. As you can see, a few of them run together and it’s hard to tell them apart. Oddly enough, I think the TLCs have more color pigmentation on my lips than the lipglasses!
For those who have left questions/comments on any of the HK posts: I will try to answer them today, but my day is pretty spoken for (boo@school), so I’m hoping to have everything answered by Friday at the latest. Thank you for understanding!
Here are images of all six of Hello Kitty’s lipsticks swatched on my lips! I’ll have the lipglass swatches up in a little bit, once I’ve done them! Continue reading →
