New treats: MAC

Hello beauts, I have been meaning to write about these since I got them last month but other things keep coming up. I got these two as some late birthday treats and I went into MAC without anything in particular in mind, I wanted a new lipstick but wasn't sure what colour or type. I swatched lots in the shop but really liked the colour and texture of this Sheen Supreme Lipstick, which are described as:

"Combining the colour 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. This is a must-have for all those who have craved this kind of fusion." 

I picked up Full Speed which is described as a bright clean yellow pink. The colour of Full Speed is quite similar to Impassioned which I LOVE but due to the lipstick type being so different they look completely different on the lips. Full Speed does not stay put as long but feels lovely on the lips due to the glossy aspect of it. It is my first Sheen Supreme lipstick and I'd definitely consider getting more of them, I also really like the different packaging but due to the consistency these lipsticks are flat and not a pointed bullet shape so are slightly more difficult to apply precisely. 

The second item I got from MAC was the "Superwatt" eyeshadow from the limited edition Electric Cool range. All the eyeshadows in the range had a frost finish and were described as:

"A soft, lightweight, springy formula delivers hue-rich colour in a modern mode. One touch and you'll be wired into its sensational blending power. Medium-to-high coverage transforms eyes."

I fell in love with these and really wish I'd got a couple of others as the texture of them is amazing and now all but two of the colours have sold out online and there are not in store anymore, gutted! The consistency is creamy and 'spongey' when you apply the eyeshadow but then as it sets it goes to more of a powdery eyeshadow. It does crease a little on me but I don't really mind this as the colour is gorgeous and can be used as a base and so good for blending into other eyeshadows and for a smokey eye.

I love MAC packaging
