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.

Only Zen Rose is a new color, which is reviewed below with photographs and swatches. The other 12 shades are fully reviewed in this post from when they were released with the Seasonally Supreme Collection, and the review and overview posts from their original release.
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.
Despite MAC’s description that it is a fuchsia color, Zen Rose is actually a classic magenta. The color is vibrant and strong, giving a glossy finish to the lips. The formula is moisturizing and glides nicely onto the skin.
I really don’t have any criticisms of this color or the Sheen Supreme formula. Zen Rose has all the positive qualities of the previously-released Sheen Supreme colors.
Ease of Use: 9.75/10
Zen Rose glides on smoothly. You can easily layer it if you want a more opaque finish, or leave just one layer for a more transparent, gloss-like finish. The lipstick is soft, so just be careful that you don’t press down too hard when applying or expose too much of the lipstick out of the tube, which can cause the product to bend/break.
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!
