MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick
MAC SO Supreme Supreme Lipsticks

MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.12 oz.) has been launched again with the So Supreme collection, and there are five limited edition shades and one repromoted shade (that is also part of the permanent range).  All of the shades felt consistent with the Sheen Supreme formula, except Pret-a-Pretty, which had a drier consistency and a lot less glossiness/shine.  The formula tends to be comfortable to wear with a fair amount of slip and creaminess, and they’re not drying but not particularly hydrating in my experience.  I typically get between three to four hours of wear with this formula, with brighter or deeper shades lasting four hours or slightly longer, and then very pale or pastel-like shades lasting around three hours. I’ll be testing these shades for wear over the week and will update with exact times, so the  ratings are subject to change, but I would not expect drastic changes.

Candy Apple is described as a “midtonal warm plum.” It’s a brightened, muted reddish plum with a glossy finish. You might say there’s a little plum in it, which gives it that muted feel, but it’s still rather red and vibrant. Urban Decay Manic is deeper, redder. Chanel Dialogue is redder. Revlon Wild Watermelon is a bit brighter. Guerlain Chamade is redder. See comparison swatches.

Gotta Dash! is described as “pale clean coral.” It’s a light-medium, peachy-orange with very subtle pink tones–but it is more peach than it is a pink-coral. If you have really pink lips naturally, I expect this to be closer to coral on you. It had mostly opaque color coverage.  The lighter color paired with the higher slip consistency does mean little lines can be created if you press your lips together. This shade is part of the permanent range. MAC Naked Proof is less glossy. Chanel Sentiment is similar but less glossy. Edward Bess Forbidden Flower is warmer. MAC Sweet & Sour is more matte, lighter. MAC Reel Sexy is more matte, pinker,. Burberry Pink Apricot is more matte, darker. See comparison swatches.

Playtime is described as a “bright coral pink.” It’s a brightened, medium pink with cool, blue undertones and fine shimmer. It had mostly full color coverage. OCC Lovecraft is metallic. NYX Pink Lyric is darker, pinker. Maybelline Pink Pop is lighter, as is MAC Divine Choice. MAC Outrageously Fun is a touch more magenta. MAC Naughty Saute is cooler-toned, lighter. OCC Narcissus is purpler. See comparison swatches. Long-time MAC fans may remember Slimshines, which is a formula I compared to this formula when it originally came out (they’re not quite similar), and Kissable was one of the few I had–and this shade immediately reminded me of it; Kissable is glossier with more shimmer and is, perhaps, a smidgen lighter, but they are comparable.

Pleasurefruit is described as a “bright warm pink.” It’s a brightened, medium fuchsia-pink with subtle warm undertones. It had mostly opaque color coverage. Revlon Sorbet is similar. MAC Lickable is cooler-toned. MAC Impassioned is more matte, brighter. Guerlain Gigi is redder. See comparison swatches.
collection, and there are five shades and one repromoted shade (that is also part of the permanent range).

Pret-a-Pretty is described as a “soft warm pink.” It’s a pale, pink-tinged beige with a satin finish. Though it is the Sheen Supreme formula, it actually was quite a dull sheen rather than the shinier, glossier finish the others had. This one was the least forgiving, as it tended to settle into lip lines and emphasize any imperfections. It was mostly opaque but there was noticeable sheerness. MAC Of Beauty is pinker. MAC You’re Perfect Already is pinker, darker. MAC Fun Finds is more beige. MAC Myth is similar. MAC Innocence Beware is less pink, slightly darker. See comparison swatches.

Sweet Grenadine is described as a “bright orange.” It’s a slightly muted orange with a glossy finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with some translucency. Of all the shades, it had the thinnest consistency and sat best on the lips. MAC Tart & Trendy is brighter, lighter. See comparison swatches.

  1. You look good in almost anything..seemingly… But I have to say that these aren’t wowing me on you. Some better than others but they seem maybe too popsicle like. Am I right?

    Ordered candy apple expecting it to look like the promo pic. Although the review is good, I am disappointed the color isn’t the plum I thought it would be.

  3. Meme

    These colors are perfection.

  4. Alejandra

    Hey Christine.Off topic but what do you use for your brows?I believe you said Anastasia of Beverly Hills products.I think yours look great.
    Would you mind specifying?

    • I used NARS’ newer Brow Gel here, but I normally use MAC Espresso eyeshadow. I don’t use Anastasia – I’m not sure if I have in years!

    I think these look really nice, but the ones I like (Candy Apple, Playtime, and Pleasurefruit) look fairly dupeable, at least in terms of color.

  6. Candy Apple looks really pretty!

  7. Leslie-Marie

    So happy I got Playtime…and ooooohh, I’m going back for Pleasurefruit!

  8. I’m loving Candy Apple and Sweet Grenadine. :)

  9. VickyM

    Candy Apple looks amazing on you Christine :D .

  10. Awesome shades love it :) :)

    Candy Apple looks sooooo good! anyone know when these come out in the UK?

  12. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Abigail abigailod

    Christine, how would you say this formula compares to the Mineralize Rich lipsticks? Any preference over the other?

    I loved the So Elegant (or something Elegant) from the original Slimshines, and still in search of a dupe.

  13. Bella

    Nice, but I already own examples of the colours I like. (The Bobbi Brown sheer lip colors have quite a few dupes).

  14. Candy Apple is very interesting

  15. MAC Gotta Dash wonderful <3

    Hi christine, i was wondering if there is a dupe for the colour pleasurefruit in macs perrnament range, by colour only and not the finish(if that made sense) and these look amazing on you like candy apple.
    again, thanks for the review so quick

  17. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Linda Linda

    Beautiful colours!

  18. Candy Apple and Pleasurefruit are calling me name. I wish I thought I looked better in lipsticks (usually I just wear tinted gloss) so I could justify buying them!

  19. Pleinair

    Hi Christine thanks for the review!

    I really liked candy apple, pret-a-pretty and sweet grenadine!

    How do you compare candy apple with viva glam cyndi and glamourdaze lipsticks? Thanks.

  20. I don’t know why but they remind me so much of the Revlon lip butter!?

  21. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Danielle Danielle

    Oooh Sweet Grenadine is lovely. Bright and melony and translucent. Wish there were cheap dupes!

  22. Marina

    Dear MAC Cosmetics,
    I can no longer keep up with all the new releases.
    Signed,
    Marina
    hahahah

  23. Hala

    OMG they’re beautiful shades and you are look stunning specially with the first one I love them all except pret a pretty it makes you look pale

  24. I just bought this today and its so gorgeous. I love the glossy finish and how pigmented it is. A perfect colour for summer

  25. Clara

    I don’t understand why MAC releases One shade After another that is a dupe to “Reel Sexy” rather than making a shade like it permanent…
