MAC Ultra Darling Sheen Supreme Lipstick Review and Swatch
Hello Beauties, Frequent readers of my blog know that how much I love pink lipsticks and sheer formulae. It’s not that I don’t like creamy opaque lipsticks, but during summer I like to keep minimal makeup and hence prefer sheer formulae. Almost every brand has sheer shine lipsticks in their collection. I also tried some of them and did reviews on “Dior addict high shine”. Today I am going to review “MAC sheen supreme Ultra Darling”
MAC Says-Combining the color impact of a Lipstick with the shine sheen of a Lipglass, Sheen Supreme creates the perfect hybrid – with no compromise. It is Light weight, 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 Thoughts- MAC sheen supreme lipsticks are housed in a black cylindrical case (almost like pro long wear lipcream). I like the packaging more than that of regular line (though it’s a personal choice). The lipstick itself is cylindrical in shape, though some people like typical C curve top lipstick which makes easy application and easy to handle, the one’s with cylindrical shape need careful opening and closing.
You get 3.6g of product for € 17.50. you get 0.6g extra product in same price. €17.50 is the standard price of MAC lipsticks. The price of MAC sheen supreme is economical then other lipsticks in the same formula like- Dior addict high shine 3.5g for €25, Chanel rouge coco shaine- 3.0g for €30.
The formula of sheen supreme is very creamy and moisturizing. It goes like feather on your lips, so smooth, very lightweight and non sticky. I would like to scrub my lips before wearing it. You need healthy lips to wear this kind of formula as they can enhance your dry lip lines.
As the name goes Ultra darling gives very feminine soft look to your lips. MAC describes it as a mid-tone yellow pink. In the tube it looks more of berry pink but on lips it looks more of water-melony pink ( it sounds so fruity J).For me ultra darling is a very versatile color as it goes shear on my lips at one swipe (appropriate for day time) and gives me almost opaque coverage in 3 swipes. Due to the creamy formula the staying power is less 3-4hrs.Sheen supreme gives glossy finfish to your lips so need to apply lipgloss( reduce one step from your makeup schedule ).
