Product Review: MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Ultra Darling

It has been over a year since I last used a MAC lipstick. I decided I was so over the MAC hype and that there is more to makeup than the brand, especially with lipsticks and blushes. Blame it on Japanese and high end brands for my ditching MAC. It wasn't only until I got to try the Sheen Supreme lipsticks that I wanted something from MAC again. It was love at first swatch with Ultra Darling though I had my eyes set on Full Speed and Korean Candy at that time. I've been using it everyday for almost a week now so I guess that's a fair enough time to give it a review.

Sheen Supreme Lipsticks according to MAC

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.

Ultra Darling is described as a mid-tone yellow pink.

What I like:
  • The shade is a very pretty watermelon pink with just the right hint of coral in it. It also has the right amount of sheen to make the lips look healthy and glossy. 
  • I love the formula. As I have mentioned earlier, I have given up on MAC lipsticks since I had my love affair with a few high end ones but I can confidently say that MAC earned a second chance because of this Sheen Supreme Lipstick line. It's creamy, glides smoothly, and is very comfortable enough to wear on the lips. It feels like I'm wearing my Dior Addict lipstick. It is definitely a hybrid of a lipstick and a lip gloss with a touch of a glossy lip balm, if I may add that.
  • It is non-drying. I have used it a couple of times without a lip balm underneath but it never dried out my lips.
  • I love how the color instantly brightens up my face. It's kinda bright on my lips as compared to my usual lip color choices but I can't help but love this. I can definitely see those with fair and medium skin tones rocking this shade.
  • No irritation on my lips.
  • Lasts fairly well for 2-3 hours (without drinking/eating) but definitely not as long lasting as matte lipsticks because of its glossy formula.

What I don't like:
  • The packaging/tube. Not a huge fan of it. I like the regular bullet-looking one better. Plus it's kinda hard to open.
  • Maybe pricey for Php 1000/tube but I'm loving the formula so I really don't mind the price tag. MAC is crazily raising their prices to compete with high end ones, I guess.

Overall rating: 4.75/5 Well, ain't this lipstick the Ultra Darling for getting this rating? :)

Will I buy again? Expect to see another shade from the Sheen Supreme Lipstick line in a month or so which is Full Speed. Unless I get over my coral-pink affinity, I'd probably get an everyday nude shade instead which is Bare Again. :)

On me

Have you tried any MAC Supreme Sheen Lipsticks? If you haven't, what shades would you like to try?

Have a great week ahead of you, everyone! :)



  1. Gorgeous! I ditched MAC but I did get the festive frost face kit which I like a lot.

  2. It is perfect color in winter..such a pretty color.

  3. Pammy it is such a sweet colour on you. Very nice!

  4. I dont' know why but this reminded me so much of Dior? Probably the sheen and the shape :) Super lovely on you!

  5. Argh... Idk if I accidentally posted the comment before I finished writing it... but anyways.

    I like it and it looks good but idk why MAC would raise their prices to "compete"...wouldn't raising prices make people less likely to buy?


    Visit my makeup blog!

  6. It makes you look younger but I'd have to agree with you that I also prefer the original lipstick bullet of MAC :)

  7. looks perfect on you!
    the price is steadily increasing
    tsk tsk tsk

    buti na lang lippies lang ang like ko sa mac..haha!

  8. @Jamilla Camel I checked out that line just now (I know, super late) and some shades are gorgeous! :)

  9. @Janet I agree! Such a lovely shade especially when swatched or worn. :)

  10. @Askmewhats It really does resemble Dior, doesn't it? Thank you. :)

  11. @Chriselle Sy Good point. The way I see it, it's like if their prices are within the same range as high end ones, there are some who would think that the quality is pretty much the same or competitive enough to be priced close to higher end ones. :D

  12. @Gellie Abogado And I am so relieved that it does not make me look older. :D For some reason, this kind of packaging reminds me of the fake ones I see on flea markets and even online. :(

  13. @~tHiAmErE~ True! At least, the lippies do not cost more than a thousand bucks. :P Have you tried the Blot Powder? It's nice. :D

  14. I haven't bought a MAC product in a while too so nope haven't tried these yet. This looks great on you! :D
