Mac Sheen Supreme in Behave and Paint Pot in Soft Ochre

The newest two MAC Cosmetics items I have added to my collection are the Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Behave Yourself and the Paint Pot in Soft Ochre. I have recently fallen madly in love with the sheen supreme formulation so I am happily acquiring more of those formula lipsticks and I finally decided it was time to splurge and purchase a real deal paint pot and see how it held up to the color tattoos that I have been using as eye shadow bases. As always, enjoy the swatch photos below :-)

Most importantly I am a serious sucker for really sleek beautiful packaging.  The sheen supreme lipsticks come in this absolutely gorgeous black metal lipstick tube.  I am in LOVE with this packaging, and I think it is far more beautiful than the typical MAC lipstick bullet.  Okay, Okay, enough gushing over some lipstick packaging.

This shade was certainly more glittery than it appeared online, there are tons of tiny little magical glitter particles throughout this shade.  Behave Yourself is a blue based pink, which means your teeth are going to look more white than they are next to this color.  This shade isnt OVERLY blue based so you also wont look like your semi-dead and it isn't anywhere near as blue based/cartoonish as the Nikki Minaj MAC lipsticks. 

Here is the swatch on my lips.  It is a super creamy completely wearable pink with that natural healthy sheen that I adore about these lipsticks.  They do not come off glossy in any way, but I would say that sheen is quite comparable to say the appearance of your natural lips if you lick them.  Just a healthy natural, not too shiny perfect sheen. 

The MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre is a classic shade to use as an eye shadow base.  I chose this color because it is more yellow based than my skin and it should easily cancel out any underlying veins on my eyelids.  

You can see from the swatch on my  hand that this is a great shade for people of my skin tone to evening out eyelids while providing a solid base for more eye shadows.  I must say, I have tried this several times as an eye shadow base and I am really LOVING it.  I would say that this may edge out the color tattoos as a base for me.  I think the tipping point in that determination is that this is a Matte base and not shimmery like most of the color tattoos.  

I would love to read your Paint Pot suggestions below!  Do you love the Sheen Supreme Lipsticks? Do you have any color suggestions for a new sheen supreme?

I hope that you all have a Beautiful Day,
