A glimpse at the lips: MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Sunny Seoul & Coral Bliss


I love me some MAC Cremesheen.  Love the way it feels, looks and performs.  Hot Gossip sealed the deal for me a few years back.  When MAC announced the release of eight new permanent colours I jumped for joy!  Then, I left work on Monday (during my lunch hour, of course) and purchased Sunny Seoul a.k.a Full of Seoul and Coral Bliss.

While we're on the topic, does anyone know why MAC is selling Sunny Seoul and Full of Seoul?  Can you spot the differences, aside from the names, price points and colour descriptions?  Here's a side by side comparison for you to ponder over.  MAC, enquiring minds want to know!

The differences between the two aren't all that vast when I wear them -- I can thank the colour of my lips for that. When swatched, Sunny Seoul reminds of Italian Ice, specifically the watermelon flavour and Coral Bliss is similar to that of orange sherbet.  Awwe, screw it.  Let's blow this popsicle stand and pick up a few ice cream cones, my treat!

Tip: If you have super-pigmented lips like me, first, I'd dab a bit of foundation on my lips and then apply my lipstick to increase the colour payoff.

Wear time is average.  I wore Sunny Seoul during an afternoon of epic pampering, by the time my massage was through (call it three hours) Sunny Seoul was nowhere to be seen.  Coral Bliss performed in a similar manner during drinks and nibbles yesterday evening.

If you want a low-maintenence look and don't mind touching up throughout the day, then give this latest installment of Cremesheen lippies a shot.
