|Isn't it pretty? All sparkly and stuff?|
|Direct sunlight. This doesn't really do it justice; up close and personal, you can't really see the lip lines the way they are emphasized here. It's much less obvious in person.|
Unfortunately, I found that it doesn't have the same faint vanilla smell characteristic of MAC's regular lipsticks; it's stronger and sweeter, and reminds me of Revlon's Super Lustrous lip glosses - at least, the way I remember them smelling, but I haven't owned any since high school. I'm not a huge fan of this scent, but it's tolerable. However, the Sheen Supreme lipstick also has a faint taste associated with it, too, which I don't like. I didn't find that the scent/taste went away; I just stopped noticing it after a while. If I thought about it again, though, I could detect both scent/taste throughout the length of wear. I am, however, pretty sensitive about smells, so if they typically don't bother you, you'll probably be okay.
I didn't find these particularly moisturizing, but they aren't drying. All in all - they feel like a gloss, but have the pigmentation of lipstick.

Skip it if: You don't like tacky or sticky lip products, or you prefer clear-cut, strong lip colors and sheer glosses, rather than a hybrid of the two.
Either way, smell them first. Temptalia said they are vanilla-scented, but I don't really get that, and Can't Resist definitely smells different from my other MAC lipsticks. I like some of the other Sheen Supreme shades, but I'm not sure I'm a huge fan of this sticky formula and the smell. It's actually not that strong, but it's noticeable. I think I'd probably stick to another brand of glossy-almost-lipstick (maybe try Dior's Addicts, or more Sérum de Rouges), even if they are pricier.
