The start of a beautiful relationship

Hello MAC! So I was actually given the Sheen Supreme Lipstick as a gift from a friend. That was a good day for post! The eyeliner gel was bought off ebay. I'll go into more details about both below.

Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Quite The Thing! - I haven't ever been in love with a lipstick before, but now that I know what it feels like, I don't want the feeling to ever leave!

My horrible phone pictures do this absolutely no justice at all (Must remember to pick up my camera next time I'm at my friend's house!) It's a rich plum colour with a blue kind of tinge to it. I thought this was really strange at first but after I tried it on, I loved it! I'm trying not to use it too much right now, I want to buy a lip brush, don't want to waste it too much by just slapping it on. So for now it's a special occasions lipstick.

The description on the MAC website for the Sheen Supreme range is :

Combining the colour impact of a lipstick with the shine sheen of a lipglass, Sheen Supreme creates the perfect hybrid - with no compromise. Ligtweight, 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'd say that is spot on really. It goes on like a dream, however I do need to invest in a lip liner to wear with it as I find it bleeds out after a few hours wear. Don't know if it's just me that suffers from this or other wearers too. Let me know!

Now the eyeliner gel. I bought this off ebay as I said above but it cost me 99p and it wasn't advertised as being MAC which leads to believe it's probably a fake. That, or I got the best bargain ever on ebay!

I'm going to stick with it's probably a fake though. I'd never tried eyeliner gel before so thought I'd give it a bash, that's why I went to ebay first. I got a small brush with the gel as well, it's not pictured because I'm an idiot and forgot to add it.

I really like this stuff though! It goes on quite nicely and is a good bold colour. I find it doesn't last very long so I think I need to maybe invest in an eyelid primer see that will help it last that little bit longer.

I think the gel is a really good idea, it's going to last me longer than my ever faithful Miss Sporty Eye Pencil Magic or Collection (2000) Fast Stroke Eyeliner. I feel like I get a sharper look than the Miss Sporty and straighter lines than the Collection liner. I'm not too great at liquid liner, must practice!

Just need to get it to stay and this will probably be my go to liner.

Now for the questions to you! What is your favourite lipstick? Have you tried the Sheen Supreme Range? If so opinions? Eyeliner, what is your preferred method? I haven't tried the pens yet, have you? Any links to reviews on them would be greatly appreciated!



  1. Sadly the eyeliner is a fake but for 99p I guess you can't really complain eh?!

    If you are after a good budget gel liner though, the maybelline one is pretty good although I find it dries out quite quickly. The genuine MAC fluidline is so worth the money, it lasts forever and is so easy to apply! I also love plain old liquid liners, the Collection 2000 ones and Rimmel ones are just as good as the MAC Penultimite pen liner in my opinion!!x

    1. I figured it would be but as you say, can't complain at 99p :)

      Thanks for that. Once I have the money I'll be going liner shopping! x

  2. i love love love mac lipsticks! my fav of the mo is a nude shade called hue. it's so darn wearable! i want rebel tho which is similar to yours but i don't kno if i'd look silly?!

    fab blog btw :)


    1. Now that I've tried one, I must try more!!

      Oh that looks like a lovely shade! I never used to be a fan of pinks but as I've gotten older I'm starting to enjoy them a bit more :)

      Thank you! x
