REVIEW! | MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Bare Again & Can't Get Enough

Product: MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick
Category: Lipstick
Color: Bare Again (Pinky Neutral Beige), Can't Get Enough (Beige Neutral)
Cost: $14.50
Where to Buy: MAC
MAC says:"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."
Pros: More moisturizing than regular lipsticks, excellent color payoff, lasts approximately 4 hours, sturdy-yet-sleek packaging
Cons: Thick formula can lead to less-than-stellar application, lipstick is scented

Review: I was so excited about these lipsticks when they launched and I immediately purchased these two. The pigmentation is really good for a sheen type lipstick/lip balm hybrid; I find the color payoff to be much more significant with these than with Chanel's Coco Rouge Shines. For me, I wasn't so fond of the ultra buttery texture and the thick consistency of of the lipstick. You seriously only need a swipe or two for perfect coverage; any more and you'll notice the color begins to pool a bit in the corners of your mouth. They wear well for about 4 hours before you'll want to reapply due to the color fading and your lips feeling a bit dry. Like all MAC lipsticks, they are unflavored and vanilla-scented. I don't mind the scent but it does tend to linger. Those with fragrance sensitivities may not enjoy it.

The packaging is fabulous! The lid slides over a groove and snaps shut to lock n' load. There is no fear whatsoever of the cap coming off and finding the lipstick flapping nimbly-bimbly about in your bag.

I've used other MAC lipsticks in the past and have been quite pleased with their formulation, but the Sheen Supremes felt a little too thick and greasy on my lips.

Color Payoff: 9/10
Endurance: 7/10
Packaging: 10/10
Scent/Flavor: 6/10
