MAC Lipstick in See Sheer (Lustre finish)
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. But the time had come to treat myself to a new lippy, so I thought… why not!
MAC describes See Sheer 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 would consider it more of a coral colour with orange undertones than a pink.
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, MAC’s 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 touching 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, and if you’re not as daring with your lipsticks, I highly suggest MAC’s lustre range as they’re 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.

I thought this shade was similar to Costa Chic, but after seeing it swatched on your hand and worn it looks so different!

This shade looks so pretty, perfect for Spring/Summer but also looks great as an everyday throw on and go lipstick :). I love MAC Mehr at the minute, it's a nude but with a subtle pink colour xx
