MAC Lipstick See Sheer // Swatch + Review

See Sheer from MAC is a grapefruit pink lipstick

I've had MAC's See Sheer lipstick on my wish list for a while now but because it's really similar to Crosswires, another MAC lipstick I own, I resisted buying See Sheer. That is until my sister went to New York on a college trip and asked me if I wanted anything from MAC (uuhh, YES PLEASE!)

A review of See Sheer Lipstick from MAC

See Sheer was right on the top of my list, I had no hesitations when she asked me! MAC describes it as a semi sheer grapefruit pink and when you compare a photo of grapefruit and the bullet of the lipstick, it's a pretty accurate description of the shade. I wouldn't call it a pink shade, though - it's more of a coral colour with orange undertones. 

See Sheer is a beautiful pink lipstick for Summer

It's a really pretty shade for Spring, it adds a wash of colour to my lips that looks quite natural. If I wanted to wear minimal make-up during the day, See Sheer would make the perfect lipstick to finish off the look! It's has a slightly glossy finish and it lasts about 3 hours on my lips which I know isn't long at all compared to some other lipsticks out there in the £15+ price point, but because this is such a subtle shade on me, I do find myself freshening it up after a few hours as the lipstick doesn't fade in to a stain like a brighter shade would. 

MAC See Sheer is a sheer and lustre formula

It still has a good amount of pigment, though but if you're not as daring with your lipsticks, I highly suggest MAC's lustre range as really wearable. It adds a subtle amount of colour that will give you a boost of confidence without making you feel self-conscious. I've taken my Mum and my Grandma to the MAC counters and have recommended them a lipstick from the lustre formula. My mum wears minimal make up and my Grandma doesn't use make up at all, but they never goes without a bit of lippy whenever they go out and they've both really liked the MAC lipstick I suggested to them.
