Review: MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick in ‘Insanely It’

This was a sneaky purchase from CCO in Swindon’s designer outlet, and one I do not regret in the slightest!!

Not that I often regret my purchases, but they can sometimes be a little rushed with the ‘product rush’ I get, you know, too many endorphins etc.

Insanely It is a Sheen Supreme lipstick and one of the first of that kind that I’ve owned. There was a tester in the shop so after swatching it on my hand I did like how moisturising it felt and still had a decent wash of colour.

I love the sleek black packaging as always and love that this type of lipstick is slightly different to the bullet shape of other MAC lipsticks.

The cap closes nice and tightly with a satisfying click so you know that the lid isn’t going anywhere at the bottom of your hand bag.

The lipstick is lightweight and according to MAC is the perfect combination between a lipstick and a lipglass.

Insanely It is a beautiful pink colour that looks bright but doesn’t look overly shocking when on. It has a slight shimmer running through it but this doesn’t translate to a shimmery lipstick, more like just giving it the lipglass effect that is the entire ‘Sheer’ point of the lipstick!

It has a slight blue tone which means it’s great for paler individuals and for making your teeth appear brighter, win win!

You can easily build this up or use it as a wash of colour, and it lasts for around 4 hours. It’s quite moisturising but I do feel the need to use lip balm, mainly as my lips crave moisture 24/7.

You can see it in the picture below where I’ve applied it as I normally would. This is a full application, though you could build it up a bit more if you wanted to.

I absolutely love it and it has become a firm favourite in my hand bag!


It’s bright and summery but flattering too and I’ve worn it to work, lunches and nights out. What’s best about it is the fact that due to its slightly darker pink as opposed to something like MAC’s Nicki Minaj lipstick is you could wear this in Autumn/Winter too where you want to brighten up the dreary weather!

What do you think of the Sheen Supreme range? I’m very interested in trying more of them….
