There’s a new lipstick launch from Makeup By Mario called the SuperSatin Lipstick ($28 each). They just launched at Sephora in 18 shades and the formula is beautiful! I was fortunate to receive them in PR so I’ve swatched them all.
Formula is super creamy and opaque with full coverage. Texture is super smooth and while they’re called “satin” they pull more on the slightly creamy/glossy side in finish. They feel a little thick when you swipe them on but not heavy. Color adheres really well and has good lasting power as long as your lips don’t touch anything. Since it’s more of a traditional lipstick it’s not transferproof but I have been really impressed with the lasting power. The glossy/creamy finish makes them feel conformable on the lips and slightly hydrating. There is a subtle vanilla scent but it’s very subtle to me.

Color range is pretty good with a mix of neutrals, reds, bolds. I do think the neutrals are a bit tricky to know how they’ll pull on your complexion until you try them. I loved the way so many of his Ultra Suede Lipsticks looked in the tube and swatched on the arm but most of them pulled a lot lighter on my lips. For me most of the new SuperSatin tones are easier for me to pull off although there are definitely a few that did not work for my skin tone.
Quick note that some of the tones looked warmer in the tube but on my lips they pulled a lot cooler/neutral. Most of you already know that I have a darker natural lip tone that almost looks purple sometimes. If you have a more pink or lighter lip color I think most of the light tones will look a lot better on you than they do on me.
- Midtown is a stunning neutral light pink beige (but looks like concealer on me)
- Flatiron is a light beige
- South Shore is a nude pink (a bit deeper than Midtown)
- Bronx Baby is a neutral-cool light brown pink
- (917) is a neutral-cool pink mauve
- Nolita is a mauve pink
- Dumbo is a 90s-ish brown rose
- Soho is the perfect soft peach
- Uptown Girl is a burnt orange
- Harlem is a classic red
- Chelsea is an electric fire engine red shade
- West Village is a fuchsia pink
- Broadway is a cool-toned pink
- Tribeca is a blue based red
- Rockefeller is a classic bold brick red
- Forest Hills is a plum brown
- Central Park is a deeper brown
- Downtown Girl is an even deeper brown
I lip swatched a few of them for the blog but if you want to see them all in action I posted them here on Reels (quick note the last shade featured is Downtown Girl, apologize for the typo!). For Skintone Reference I’m wearing the Chanel No1 de Chanel Revitalizing Foundation in B40 (reviewed + swatches here).

Overall I really like these. Formula gets a solid A+ but not all the colors work for me which is expected. I think it’s rare that anyone would love every single shade in a lipstick launch. I think they have a great range. I would love to see some of the MoistureGlow Lip Serums or Plumping Lip Colors in this kind of full coverage longer wearing formula.
My favorite is Soho. I also really like (917) and I think I can make South Shore work sometimes even though it’s pale, I may need to add a liner. According to many of you Rockefeller is THE winning shade, I didn’t swatch it for the blog but you can check it out on my Reel. I agree it’s a really beautiful classic kind of bold lip with the perfect undertone.
