MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Ultra Darling

MAC Sheen Supreme lipsticks($14.50) are super moisturizing, glossy lipsticks that are part of MAC's permanent line. What's not to love in a lipstick when it is pigmented, glossy & moisturizing? I got my first Sheen Supreme in 'Bare Again' the same day these lipsticks were launched. The weather was super cold and dry then so, when I tried them initially, I kinda felt they were sucking the moisture out of my lips just after a couple of hours of wear so, I returned it back within a day or two. I really wanted to give these lipsticks a second chance since the weather is getting a lot more warmer now and also because the concept of a glossy lipstick was just impossible to resist.

So this time, I picked up 'Ultra Darling' a mid-tone yellow pink that is rather bright. It does have teeny tiny golden shimmer and a beautiful cream finish. The texture of these lipsticks are very slick so, I wouldn't recommend using a lip balm underneath.The finish is super shiny and glossy and the lipstick itself feels very light. When the weather is slightly warm and I don't have a terrible case of dry lips, these lipsticks provide the right amount of moisture for me. They don't provide any extra, super dose of moisture and neither do they dry out my lips as much as they did earlier. If you have very dry lips, just make sure you prep them very well. They have the same amount of staying power the lipglasses have on me. That's about 2-3 hours of wear, which is fine. I don't expect much wear time out of glossy lipsticks.

Overall, I really like them as much as I like the lustre lipsticks from MAC especially, during the hotter months. I love products that multi-task which is why I even tried this again and would totally try a shade or two more. Have you tried the MAC Sheen Supreme Lipsticks?

  2. I haven't tried out these new lipsticks by MAC. But from your review, yes, I think I must get at least one to try out. Till I visit a MAC store again.....:) Because where I am now, there is no MAC store or counter.

  3. I haven't tried the sheen supreme lipsticks, because they're glossy and look like they wouldn't feel very nice. xP
