Review: MAC Ultra Darling Sheen Supreme Lipstick

MAC's Sheen Supreme lipstick in 'Ultra Darling' - £16.50

I always have similar problems when I'm writing make-up reviews because I really feel like make-up is very personal and subjective. Everyone has completely different opinions when it comes to make-up and I sometimes wonder if there's much I can say which would be of any use to anyone. There's more to life than lipstick, after-all. Saying that, I do really like this lipstick and it feels pretty good to put this on in the morning before I go and tackle real-life stuff. Makes me feel more put together than I actually am. I feel like a kick-ass business woman even though I'm just going to school or out to get a chai latte. That's the most important thing you need to know about MAC's Ultra Darling: it makes you feel like you could become the CEO of a major corporation. Okay, so that might be a slight exaggeration but this is one empowering lipstick.

When it comes to lipstick, I tend to lean more towards the matte end of the spectrum but Ultra Darling is the complete opposite of that and, surprisingly, I love it. I got it for my birthday in August from a friend and have been wearing it at least a few times a week ever since. It's a very wearable, everyday shade of medium pink with no shimmer or anything. The 'sheen supreme' formula makes it lovely and moisturising and although it isn't as long-lasting as a matte lipstick, it still lasts for a good couple of hours before you need to top-up. Unlike a lot of glossy lipsticks, this one doesn't slide all over my face and my hair doesn't stick to it which is definitely a bonus. Overall, I really like this lipstick. There's not much more I can say: it's a lipstick.

Lots of love, Cat

  1. It sounds like a great lipstick and the shade is gorgeous. I tend to wear darker lipsticks but I'd happily wear that - the only problem for me is that there's no way I'd pay that much for one - it's just out of my price range.
    Can I just say that I love the bookshelf organisation in the background :D xx

    1. It's out of my price range too so I understand completely. I only ever get high-end makeup for my birthday/Christmas - I just buy high-street makeup for myself.
      Aw thank you! I recently re-organised my books :D xx

  3. I AM IN YOUR HEADER, AND THAT IS A PRETTY LIPSTICK.

    Is that why I've been feeling so intimidated by you the past few days? The lipstick was giving you a boss like aura.

    1. YOU ARE INDEED, RACHEY-KINS.
      Oh well it must be. I am naturally very intimidating, though. I'm a boss-ass bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch.
