MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick: Good to Be Bad, Gotta Dash!, Impressive, Insanely It, Look at Her!

MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick ($14.50 for 0.12 oz.) is a brand new (but permanent) range of lipsticks. According to MAC, the lipstick has strong, saturated color but comes with a modern glossed sheen, and these are moisturizing (but without tackiness). With fourteen shades in the line-up, I’ve split up them up into three parts, to control the volume of photos being downloaded per load. This post includes: Good to Be Bad (deep burgundy), Gotta Dash! (pale coral), Impressive (neutral gilded plum), Insanely It (watermelon pink), and Look at Her! (metallic copper).

  • Good to Be Bad is a semi-opaque, reddened burgundy with a semi-gloss shine. This shade can be worn patted down, and it will look more like a lip stain. It’s less purple in comparison to Hang Up; less opaque and redder than Charred Red; and a touch lighter than Darkside.
  • Gotta Dash! is an opaque, lightened peach with a hint of coral. I’m hesitant to call it a coral, because it looks rather peach to me. It’s a little less pink compared to Shy Girl, a bit like Ravishing.
  • Impressive is a plummed rose with a little brown. This is one of the glossier ones, and it has a creamy consistency without being prone toย unevennessย (like Gotta Dash! has). It seems a little browner than Modesty, a little rosier than Midi-mauve.
  • Insanely It is a semi-opaque, bright fuchsia pink with magentaย shimmer. This is one of the boldest shades of the fourteen, and it certainly is bright. It is redder than Full Fuchsia, a little pinker than Pink Fusion; it is very similar to NARS Funny Face.
  • Look at Her! is an opaque, gold-and-bronze shimmered metallic copper brown with a semi-gloss shine. Meltdown is probably the closest dupe in the permanent range, but it’s not really that comparable I’d say. NYX 24 Karat is the closest I could come up with, but it leans more golden than copper.

my thoughts on the formula: Sheen Supremes are light to medium-weight lipsticks that provide some moisturization and wear for three to five hours (lighter shades like Bare Again go for three, while deeper shades like New Temptation hang on for five). Some of shades seem to settle into lip lines a bit, and as they wear and fade, settle even more into lip lines. These have a part-shine, part-gloss finish, though it is more sheen and shine than a truly glossy finish. ย They are vanilla-scented.

Please read part one for a comparison of Sheen Supremes to Slimshines, as well as commentary on the packaging and size of the Sheen Supremes.

Impressive is just impressive ๐Ÿ˜€

Gotta Dash! is cute, but feel like I have too many of this kind of shade… so sayonara girl

Do you think Look at Her! is comparable to Guerlain Ginger?

Ps. I like your blue eye liner <3 What is it?

They’re similar – though Look at Her! has a much frostier/metallic finish, plus a lot more shimmer (so the result is a little different), but the colors are similar.

It’s MUFE #9L, I believe!

You should, because they’re permanent and the price is the same the regular lipstick but I know some stores are saying no and others are saying yes!

Really liking Gotta Dash and a little tempted by Impressive, but I’ll definitely have to take a look at that one in person. I like that these aren’t drying though, my lips are already naturally pretty dry.

Impressive is definitely coming home with me. Insanely It is absolutely stunning, and I’m thinking Look At Her! might look much better on me than Heroine would, being less brown and more orange looking

OT– am I hallucinating or did your eyeliner go from brown to a pretty blue-green along the way?

lipsticks are all pretty but if I buy another lipstick soon you already sold me on an illamasqua red… and maybe an hourglass stain… and… oh damn I gotta quit reading this blog!!! <:-/

I LOVE Gotta Dash! Do you think it might be a dupe for the discontinued Funshine Slimshine? I truly loved that shade and formula and was really hoping this line would be similar.

Funshine is probably closer to Ultra Darling, or maybe Ultra Darling mixed with Gotta Dash! but alone Gotta Dash! doesn’t have pink in it.

ooooh, I think Gotta Dash, Insanely it, and Can’t Get Enough are my favourites. But, Bare Again, Impressive, and Full Speed are also really nice. I like too many of these! Christine, I’m looking forward to your recommendations ๐Ÿ™‚

From this batch I like Gotta Dash! and Impressive Sheen. But I will have to compare them to lipsticks I already own (cut a caper and another coral I have to Gotta Dash!) and maybe Mehr and a couple others to Impressive Sheen.

I didn’t think I’d be interested in anything, but then I saw Insanely It, and my eyes popped. I can already hear my husband groan, but all I have to do is put it on, then he’ll come around. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hi Christine!

First, thanks so much for all the swatches! How does “Gotta Dash!” compare to the recent Kissable Lip Colour in “So Vain” (Peacocky Collection)? The swatches to me look similar, and it was a colour I had originally passed on because I don’t like lipgloss & their applicators (too much hassle for me!)

Take care ๐Ÿ™‚

WOW thanks so much for all of the swatches!!
Is it just me or is “impressive” maybe a bit like the LE Blow Dry from Blonde Brunette Redhead? Looking for a perm replacement as I just hit the bottom of my last tube :'(

Thanks for all these wonderful swatches, Christine!
How does “Impressive” compare to Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color in “Heather Pink”? From your lip swatches the colors look quite similar…

I just got “Can’t get enough”. It’s sooooooo pretty and looks natural on my light to medium skin.
My favorite lipstick! Your website is always very helpful. thank you:)

dear Christine,

i think of maybe buying either mac sheen supreme in impressive or bobbi brown rich lip color lipstik in heather pink. They seem quite similar but is there a difference colourwise. and concerning the quality which one would you prefer out of both?

thanks a lot

“Good to Be Bad” and “Insanely It” look gorgeous on you in these photos, Christine. I was thinking I’d want Good to Be Bad but will have to try it in store to see if I like the results.

Impressive is delicious-looking and so glossy! but I have Modesty and the colors (though not finish) seem very close. I will definitely check it out in store!

Hi, I have Creme in your coffee lipstick, and it looks similar on the picture. Do they look the same in person and that it is worth it to get impressive when I have Creme in your coffee? Im sorry, I don’t have a mac in my country, has to buy online so i need to be sure before buying ๐Ÿ™‚

Just wanted to say thank you for your work on this blog and for these swatches in particular. I got this lipstick in “Impressive” because of how much I liked the swatch here and I was definitely not disappointed. It’s my current favorite lipstick!

I’ve ordered several other items online just based off of how I liked the swatches on your blog and every single time I’ve been really pleased. You do such an awesome job capturing how the colors look in real life (hate to say it but I haven’t always had such a good experience with other people’s swatches >_<). First thing I do now when I see a product that interests me is check to see if you've reviewed it.

I just bought Good to be Bad and everytime I wear it, it just gives my everyday winged liner and neutral eye an oomph! I’m in love with it. To make the lips more glamorous, I top it off with MAC’s Kissable Lipcolour in Love Peck from the Peacocky collection. Totally in love with the color.
