MAC See Sheer Lipstick : Swatches, Review ,Photos

by mehak on March 6, 2011

in Lipsticks, MAC

True to its name, See Sheer is a semi sheer coral pink lipstick from MAC with some warm peach undertones. It is a particularly flattering color for all skintones and since it is semi sheer it takes on a character of its own depending on your natural lip color. It looks coral pink on me, but on my sister who is a shade darker its a beautiful warm peachy coral brown. On fairer skin tones, it is a lovely bright but still wearable peachy coral.

General Thoughts on MAC Lustre Finishes 
Lustre finishes are very lightweight and comfortable to wear on your lips with a glistening shine to them. They are semi sheer, and though i wont call them moisturizing, they dont dry out your lips either. I like them simply because the finish they give- they glisten just the right amount, and are available in a huge variety of shades! However, if you do have pigmented lips, then you might want to check out the other mac fornula’s such as Cremesheens  or my favourite- AMplified Cremes .

Overall Verdict: 3.75 /5 

Price: Rs 990/-
Will i Repurchase: Im good with one tube, itll last me forever.

Recommendation: See sheer is a very flattering coral peach with warm undertones, one that will look great on pretty much all skintones. It is definitely sheerer than other MAC lipsticks, but i think its the semi sheerness which makes this so wearable. It can be built up to an opaque color or worn as a light wash.

I've wanted See Sheer for awhile now – thanks for the review! Lustre finishes are my favorites too, I wish they lasted longer! Sophisto is one of my favorites; it's a a very nice warm berry color.

Lovely shade! I'm not so fond of sheer lipsticks but will check this one out.
Mehak could you do a post on corals like the one you did on nudes? I'm sure it'll be really helpful esp with the heat rising, corals will look great.

@corallista- ooh good idea. This is not that sheer actually. can be built up.

I'm not a huge lippie person, but I think this is a good way to bring in a color for neutral girls like me
