MAC Lipstick in See Sheer (Lustre finish)
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.
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.
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.
