MAC Moody Blooms collection-Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tint

Let's not beat about the bush here, these new limited edition Sheen Supreme Liplass Tints from the MAC Moody Blooms collection are possibly the worst lip product I have ever tried from MAC.  And I would say I am a big MAC girl so I know their lip products inside out.

I spotted these in Harrods when I was in London and really liked the high shine gloss when I swatched them.  I hadn't read much about the collection and nothing else really took my fancy but I have a real weakness for lipstick.

The Moody Blooms collection is based on exotic flowers blooming after dark and greens, purples and bronzes feature heavily in the collection.  There is nothing super special and no limited edition packaging.  In hindsight I should have passed on the collection full stop.

The Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tints come in a handy pen applicator, great for handbags and touching up on the go.  Described as a high shine, creamy, lightweight formula that reacts to your own natural skins PH levels to create a custom tint-although each gloss is tinted once you have twisted the cap around what felt like 100 times to release the initial colour.

I don't think I can say anything good about these glosses apart from when you initially apply it, and get the finish right I really like the high gloss, glassy finish-it's very pretty for summer.

But the downsides-the glosses are hugely sticky and remain unpleasantly tacky.  They are an absolute nightmare to apply-they are so streaky, its almost impossible to get a smooth and opaque finish.  And then they go everywhere-they wander outside your natural lip line, settle into every single line and keep appearing on your teeth.  I have found them so difficult to work with they have been tossed aside immediately.

I am a big MAC fan as I previously stated but I can't let this one slide.  This is definitely a formula I will not be repurchasing.
