Mac Sheen Supreme Dupe

I have been loving my Mac Sheen Supreme lipstick in Ultra Darling. It’s so moisturising and the colour is great. Some people have even compared the formula to Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine. Well I have found another lip product that compares with Mac and surprisingly its inexpensive and not a lipstick. It’s a lip balm!

I discovered LipIce Water colour Lip Moisturiser in a Sasa ( in Malaysia. The product is basically a tinted lip balm that comes in a rage of 4 colours. It claims to come in ‘natural soft pink shades to enhance our natural beautiful lips’. I have three of the four colours, Fantasy Pink, Kissy Pink and Sexy Pink.

It also contains vitamins and other enhancers for longer lasting moisture and helps reduce fine lines on your lips.

The look: Its very comparable to Mac, it has sleek black packaging, not at all offensive to carry around or to take out of your purse. In some ways it actually really resembles the Sheen Supreme packaging.

The Feel: As it is a lip balm you can feel that it is moisturising without being greasy and this feeling lasts for a while on your lips. Compared to some other tinted lip conditioners that as a result of having colour dries your lips quite quickly, this one gets a thumbs up.

The colour: The colour provided by what is essentially a lip balm is amazing. It’s slightly more sheer on first application than Mac but its buildable. The three colours I have are very complimentary to my skin tone, and Kissy pink is a very trendy coral colour perfect for this spring and summer

The Price: A very competitive RM14.90, working out to be roughly under £3! Compare this to £13.50 for a Mac Sheen Supreme seems like a good deal.

Overall: There have been lots of reviews on the MAC sheen supreme lipsticks; all very favourable, this is just look to see the other options out there! In my opinion both are very good lip products, both have great colour, both feel great on the lips and both look the part with sleek and stylish packaging. But as one doubles up as a lip conditioner I lean towards the LipIce. As other people find colour range is more of a priority they would probably lean towards the Sheen Supremes.
