Company’s Description

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.

Packaging: 9/10
This packaging looks like the Pro Longwear Lipcreme packaging, except the plastic for these is metallic and shiny. They’re sleek, simple, and close tightly, making them ideal for throwing in your purse. But the metallic plastic does get finger prints on it easily.

Quality: 10/10
These are absolutely wonderful. All the colors are well pigmented. They go on smoothly and give your lips a sheen, but are not sticky or tacky at all. The sheen you get is not as intense as what you’d get with a lip gloss.

Although it seems like there are a lot of dark colors in this collection, most of these colors are pretty wearable. Even the darkest color–Good To Be Bad–is one that lighter skins can pull of at night. Supremely Confident–the lightest shade–is a little difficult to wear because it is so pale and can easily wash you out.

Last, there’s no need to moisturize your lips when wearing these lipsticks. They are very moisturizing and feel like an emollient chapstick on the lips. The formulation does make the lipsticks soft, so just make sure to keep them away from heat. No leaving these in the car on a hot summer day!

Ease of Use: 9.75/10
These lipsticks glide on smoothly. You can easily layer the colors if you want a more opaque finish, or leave just one layer for a more transparent, gloss-like finish.

These lipsticks are very soft, so just be careful that you don’t press down too hard when applying.

Price: 9.5/10
MAC lipsticks are usually $14.50, but only 3 g. These lipsticks are $14.50, but you get 3.6 g of product. Strangely enough, the Pro Longwear Lipcremes are also 3.6 g, but cost $16.00. You are getting a great product, more of it, and still paying the same price!

Toss if: you want a matte finish–all of these lipsticks have a sheen
Try if: you find yourself having to put a moisturizer on top of or under your lipsticks–these lipsticks are very moisturizing
Buy if: you’ve been searching for a lipstick-lip gloss hybrid–this one is great

    Gotta Dash, Impressive, and Ultra Darling look nice…I appreciate your taking the time to do lip swatches of all of these! They look like they applied a little patchy though–especially Good to be Bad, and some with Gotta Dash and Supremely Confident. I guess that doesn’t matter so much for a balm-like lipstick, but it’s a little odd.

    Wow, these are gorgeous. I have never tried a MAC lip product but I think you have me sold on these… I prefer a lip gloss but have been wanting to try lipstick more often. This would be a nice transition between the two!

  3. Lovely lip swatches =)

    According to other websites, these and the new blushes are actually permanent additions, which would be lovely!

    I love lipstick with a sheen because it eliminates a step when I am hustling to get ready for school in the morning! The nude colors SO flattering on you, Allura! I am a sucker for nudes 🙂
