MAC Sheen Supreme Lipsticks

We see a new selection of MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick again this year with five new shades (one repromote) in the MAC So Supreme Collection. I actually only tried out one of the five shades but the formula is just as good as it has always been.

It might be a repetitive experience or even an uneventful one for some but this collection is well worth checking out.

Take a peek!

MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick doesn’t have a new formula, there isn’t any change here aside from colors so if you really loved the original launch this is a good chance to stock up on new shades.

For me sheen kinda sorta translates as sheer for some reason but these lipsticks are anything but. I tried Candy Apple and it has an incredible pigmentation with plenty of color pay off. The smooth, even glide of the lipstick formula is a joy to use and even the driest lips will find it applies beautifully. It leaves a very high sheen behind with a nice moisturizing feel that isn’t “wet” or glossy look but still has a very high sheen that gives the lipstick a glossy sort of look. I can get an average of four hours of wear from the lipstick with it fading a good deal at hour five.

Candy Apple is describe as a warm plum but I get more of a berrish red plum from it…! It’s a very nice color with some warmth to it that makes it easier for me to wear without looking too clown-y.

MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick Swatches

If you likely lightly texture, slightly balm-y yet full color lipsticks with a high almost glossy sheen I’m positive the MAC So Supreme Collection will appeal.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Wow, that color looks different in all three ways, the stick itself, the swatch and on you. Looks good!

    I just got Pleasurefruit in the mail and I love it! Quite a lot of color. But a very pretty pink and not too fuchsia…in which I never feel fully comfortable. I love the formula and will likely get other colors. Suggestions? I have blue eyes and blonde hair but yellow undertones.

    This sounds like it’s right up my alley. What is the scent/flavor like?
