MAC Asian Flower Supreme Sheen Lipstick
MAC Seasonally Supreme Lipstick (Part 2)
As promised, here is a review for the remaining four shades from MAC Seasonally Supreme, which hits counters on August 11th and all shades join the permanent range. Each retails for $14.50 and contains 0.12 oz. of product. This post only looks at four of the twelve shades, and you can see the rest of the shades in this original review. The four include: Asian Flower (creamy lavender), Blossom Culture (soft pink with pearlized pigments), Sheer Mandarin (mid-tone yellow orange), and Supreme Style (light coral pink with pearlized pigments).
- Asian Flower is a fuchsia purple with pale silver micro-shimmer. It gives opaque color coverage, and it has a glossy shine. It’s much, much lighter than MAC Playtime. It is purpler than MAC Love Forever but less vibrant than Dolce & Gabbana Violet, MAC Petals & Peacocks, and MAC Florida.
- Blossom Culture is a rosy pink with a hint of coral and pale white micro-shimmer. The color coverage is nearly opaque, but a hint of my lips natural color peeks through. Giorgio Armani #507 is lighter and Lancome Fleur de Lis is a little brighter.
- Sheer Mandarin is a peach-tinged orange with a creamy finish and opaque color coverage. It is lighter and less brown compared to Cle de Peau Just Joey. MAC Tea Ceremony is a darker version of Sheer Mandarin.
- Supreme Style is a soft pink flecked with beige and champagne shimmer. It has a frostier finish and more of a shine than a glossy finish. MAC Gem of Roses is darker, MAC Ever Hip is lighter, an Chanel Jersey Rose is less opaque.
The formula is lightweight overall, but some of the creamier shades are thicker when worn (think Happy Hibiscus). I get an average of three hours of wear on lighter shades and up to six hours with really rich, bold shades (think Korean Candy). The color coverage is semi-opaque to opaque. These are vanilla-scented, but I did not detect any taste. I find the lighter shades have a tendency to settle into lip lines and the effect becomes more noticeable as they wear and fade.
