MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick, “Quite The Thing!” Photographs, Review, & Swatches


I absolutely love the MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick line. The formula is shinier than a regular lipstick, almost like a lip gloss and lipstick hybrid. The pigmentation is sheer and soft, but buildable to the point that you can have a completely opaque shade on your lips. I’ve had my eye on “Quite The Thing!” for some time now, but finally decided to go for it when MAC was offering free overnight shipping. These types of plums always look fantastic during the colder months because they add a little extra drama around the holiday season. This one has dazzling multi-dimensional flecks of violet in it, and I adore the way it looks on the lips. I’ve got plenty of swatches inside!







Quite The Thing! is described by MAC as a “deep blue plum.” It definitely leans on the cooler side which is good news for all of us who want to make our teeth look brighter and whiter! It has flecks of violet and bright blue shimmer in it that show up when it hits the light. It can be applied sheer for a wash of color, or layered on for opaque, rich, glossy color. What I love about this particular shade is that even though it leans on the blue/cool side, it doesn’t translate that way against the skin too much. Warmer skin tones can still wear this lipstick without worrying about whether or not this will clash with your complexion.

Up close, you can see the subtle sheen effect that shows brighter blue-violet tones to it. It’s a really gorgeous plum lipstick, and the glossiness of it helps keep it modern and fresh. I can definitely see myself collecting more and more of these Sheen Supreme Lipsticks as time goes on. I’ve already purchased a few others and I tend to wear them on a regular basis.




MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick is available in twenty-three shades and is part of the permanent collection. Each lipstick retails for $16.00 USD. You can purchase these at any MAC counter nationwide, as well as online.
