MAC Bare Again Sheen Supreme Lipstick
MAC Sheen Supreme Lipsticks
are the newest range of lipsticks that will now be a part of MAC’s permanent collection. The Sheen Supremes are said to be a hyrid of a lipstick and lipgloss – pigmented like a lipstick and shiny like a lipgloss. *For reference, these are redeemable for Back 2 MAC.
MAC Sheen Supreme Lipsticks are available in fourteen (14) shades: Bare Again, Behave Yourself, Can’t get Enough, Can’t Resist, Full Speed, Good to be Bad, Gotta Dash!, Impressive, Insanely It, Look at Her!, New Temptation, Quite the Thing!, Supremely Confident and Ultra Darling.
I began swatching a few and noticed right away that the consistency is very different than any other of the MAC lipstick formulas. The Sales Associate I was speaking with compared the formula to the Cremesheen formula, but a little bit softer.
Bare Again Sheen Supreme Lipstick is a sheer, but buildable, warm beige-pink. It appears as a bright mauve in the tube, but applies slightly rosier. The color is actually very similar to the color of my actual lips. It’s a really great “My Lips But Better” lipstick shade that can flatter just about any skin tone.

It seems that MAC knows this by now and creating a new lipstick that is even creamier would be risky because although I love Creamsheens, they are very touchy and have a strong tendency to melt because of the super soft formula. But, they seemed to get the packaging down pact with the Sheen Supremes. The tube is tall and and thin – like an over sized tube of chapstick. Even though you still may have to worry about it melting, the lipstick can’t become slanted or loose from the base, because there is no space between the walls of the lipstick tube and the actual lipstick.
The consistency is extremely buttery soft. It reminds me a lot of YSL Rouge Volupte‘s formula, but I find the Sheen Supreme to be more moisturizing. It has a shiny finish, similar to the MAC Lustre formula.
From some of the reviews I have read, someone mentioned it is the exact dupe of MAC’s Limited Edition Bare Slimshine. From swatches I have seen, it does appear to look like a close match. Temptalia
describes it as- “rosier than Cherish; slightly lighter than Kinda Sexy; more opaque version of Hug Me.”
I looked through my lipsticks trying to find a dupe and I tried comparing it to MAC Feelin’ Good Lip Conditioner & NARS Chelsea Girls Lip Lacquer both were lighter and more pink. The closest color match I found was NARS Chihuahua lip gloss
