I am really excited to share my review on one of my favorite lipstick from MAC on Day 2 of My “31 Day Lipstick Challenge” .The whole lot of MAC Impressive is “Impressive”. I have this Lipstick from quite some time now. I picked it up for the lovely earth toned rose neutral shade and for the formula.
Basically, I was on hunt for finding a dupe for L’oreal Paris Glam Shine Lipsticks-100 which is discontinued now. 10 years back when L’Oreal launched this range , I bought three pieces of Glam 100. I was seriously disappointed discovering that L’Oreal has terminated the range completely. Since then( I think 2009 onwards) I kept looking for Glam 100 dupe. Finally had my “Eureka” moment at MAC counter .
I was bit reluctant initially spotting “Not regular” MAC packaging. But the swatch and formula besotted me and I bought two shades from MAC Sheen Supreme Range – Impressive and Look At Her. As of now in today’s post –MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick Impressive Review,Swatch,Photos
I am going to rationalize my immense love for MAC Impressive!!
Price:~1250 INR ( Bought from MAC Store,MBD Mall,Ludhiana)

MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick Impressive Review
MAC Sheen Supreme Lipsticks are packaged in slender cylindrical shiny black tubes that close with audible snap.Lipstick bullet is slant topped which is again different from MAC regular lipsticks. Base of the lipstick bears the name of the shade. Much to my surprise,in this skinny packaging we get more product compared to constant MAC Lipsticks. Packaging is user friendly and travel safe.
MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick Impressive is rose toned lip shade with subtle earthy brown undertones. This shade will suit all skin tones nut will look flattering particularly on Indian skin tones. I find it perfect neutral rose mauve shade that will not wash out medium – olive complexions. MAC Sheen Supreme Lipsticks have super moisturizing creamy formula. Lipstick is vanilla scented.Current condition of my lips is dry with few flaky dry patches toward the center of my lips. I love to reach out for MAC impressive these days as it feels extremely kind on my lips. Formula wears moderately light weight and gives almost opaque color in single swipe.
On my lips,MAC Impressive gives full opacity with reflective watery shine. Formula of Sheen Supreme is somewhere between MAC Amplified and Liquid Lipsticks. Lipsticks feels like melting on lips with heat of body. I absolutely adore the shimmer-less sheen in the final finish. It seems to be prone to budges but it does not feather or accumulate in fine lip line considering the medium weight of the formula. It stays on my lips for 3.5-4.5 hours without any meal. After meals , I spot a uniform color on my lips with still some healthy shine. It does not stain my lips and fades without looking patchy.I am wearing this shade almost every day since past one week, My lips are lot better now. Unlike some moisturizing creamy lipsticks this does not dry out my lips post removing/disappearance.
VANILLA RATINGS 9.5/10
As evident from my ratings, I am a huge fan of MAC Sheen Supreme Lipsticks. I absolutely loved the formula for dry parched lips or otherwise. Impressive is beautiful natural looking shade that will fall in the MLBB category of so many of us. Beaming glossy finish pump up the pout which looks juicier with Sheen Supreme on.They are pricey but you get more product than a regular MAC lipstick for same price.
Recommended with oodles of Vanilla!!
