What MAC says about the Sheen Supreme lipsticks :
Combining the colour impact of a Lipstick with the shine sheen of a Lipglass, Sheen Supreme creates the perfect hybrid – with no compromise. Lightweight, non-sticky, slick to apply and comfortable to wear. This is a must-have for all those who have craved this kind of fusion.

My take on the product
MAC Sheen Supreme lipsticks come in a sleek round packaging – similar to the Pro Longwear creme lipstick packaging. Since its a glossy lipstick with a sheen, the outer plastic has a glossy, shiny finish. I quite like the packaging but I feel loses a few points when it comes to ease of use. For one, the label has the shade name in tiny lettering which makes shades a little cumbersome to locate. Also, the bullet of the lipstick has a flat surface which makes it a little difficult to apply as compared to the regular pointed bullet.
The texture if this lipstick is soft and balm-like. It combines the pigmentation of the lipstick and the softness and glossy finish of a balm/gloss giving a unique delightful experience. It is by no means a sheer lipstick but it doesn’t feel too intense either. However, it is opaque enough to cover pigmentation on lips. The hydrating balm-like buttery-ness of the lipstick makes it a luxurious treat to apply!
Like you would have guessed, the lipstick is quite moisturizing and gives a lovely glossy sheen to the lips without looking tacky. It feels super light and comfortable on the lips. Despite its balmy texture, this particular shade lasted a good 5+ hours on me and left behind a stain that stayed for another 2-3 hours. However, past the 3-4 hour wear time, it tends to settle into the lip lines slightly especially if you have dry lips.
The shade Good to be Bad :
Good to be Bad is the darkest shade from this range – a gorgeous glossy burgundy shade. Because of its slight sheerness and glossy-ness, the shade is quite wearable though I would prefer it for the evening rather than the day. The shade has a festive air to it and looks gorgeous with a shimmery neutral grey/charcoal eye shadow or just a shimmery black liner. The MUA at the Malaysian store I picked it up from was wearing a soft smokey shimmery charcoal eye with this and it looked gorgeous on her! One can apply it lightly and blot off with tissue for a plummy stain on the lips like I’ve shown in the images or wear it to full intensity as shown in the FOTD. The shade is perfect for winters!
These lipsticks have not been launched in India yet but when I they do, I highly recommend all MAC and lipstick lovers to give these a try, maybe in a different shade if dark shades are not to your liking. This lipstick is a perfect combination of lipstick and gloss and delivers a good staying power too!
Worn sheerly and blotted :
Worn to full intensity :
p.s – I’m wearing the same lipstick as blush in the above FOTD! The easiest and most fool-proof way to coordinate lipstick and blush is to wear the same lipstick as cream blush! Also if you’re wondering about the dewy finish, I’m wearing Inglot Cream foundation – its an amazing foundation for winters, gives good coverage, super easy to blend and gives a soft dewy finish! Will be reviewing soon.
The GOOD about MAC Sheen Supreme lipstick Good to be Bad :
- Glossy black packaging – classy and attractive
- Soft, buttery texture
- Glides smoothly on the lips
- Quite moisturizing
- Gives near-opaque coverage and covers up any pigmentation easily
- Good staying power
- Gives a lovely glossy sheen to the lips
The NOT-SO-GOOD about MAC Sheen Supreme lipstick Good to be Bad :
- Flat surface of lipstick bullet makes application a little difficult
- Tends to settle into fine lines after about 4 hours of wear
- Not available in India yet
MAC Sheen Supreme lipsticks come in a sleek, glossy black packaging which is quite attractive and classy but the flat bullet makes application a tad difficult. The texture of this lipstick is soft, buttery and it has a glossy sheen to it. It is quite pigmented though not as intense as creamy/satin/matte finishes which makes even the darkest of shades quite wearable. It is quite hydrating and has a good staying power of 5-6 hours after which is leaves a stain on the lips. The only con is that it has a slight tendency to settle into lines if one has dry lips (after about 4-5 hours of wear). The shade Good to be Bad is a gorgeous Burgundy shade that would suit all complexions and can be worn lightly as a stain too.
These have not been launched in India yet but when I do, do check them out! The shade selection is quite wide and there are many gorgeous shades!
