This isn't my first Sheen Supreme lipstick; I like the feeling of the formula quite a bit. It is a little bit plush, like a kind of thick, glossy balm. These retail for $14.50, and this shade seems to still be available on MAC's website. They have the traditional MAC vanilla lipstick scent; not my favorite (it's a bit plastic/synthetic smelling, to my nose) but it's not something I notice after it's been on my lip for awhile.

Please forgive my foundation in these pictures; I was test-running a new foundation that did not agree with my dry skin, and ended up looking pretty awful. Ignore the nose area especially :(

Summary: I am really torn when it comes to this lipstick! I have been avoiding wearing it because of the lip-line issue; Looking at the photos, I realize it's not as bad as I think it is, and I doubt anyone would notice unless they were really invading my personal space, but I shouldn't be avoiding wearing a brand new lipstick! The color is such a wonderful peachy-pink-coral shade for spring, though; I have been so surprised that I don't already have half a dozen lip colors in this shade (NARS Niagara is the only lip color in this family that I have, and it's a good deal pinker). I wouldn't recommend this unless you are in love with the color and don't care about it settling into lip-lines. That being said, I'm sure I'll still end up reaching for this pretty frequently through the spring and summer because of the gorgeous color.
