MAC Lipstick in See Sheer

Hello all! It wouldn't be a successful month without a MAC lipstick review and this month is no different. This August you may even get treated to two lipsticks as I did splurge a little after payday (it was a long time coming, believe me!)

MAC describes See Sheer as "grapefruit pink" but the more I look at it in bullet-form I can't help but think it reminds me of Revlon's ever-popular lip butter in Papaya. I actually think that would make a pretty good dupe! Its lustre formula means that it provides lips with quite a sheer finish but I really like that in a lippy as it doesn't get everywhere when you're eating or drinking. Of all the lipstick formulas that MAC produces, lustre is definitely the most moisturising on my lips, and with proper preparation it can feel so light and beneficial. Admittedly however, it doesn't have the ideal staying power. Unless you're dedicated to reapplying throughout the day or night then it's most likely that you'll have major fading.

Overall I give See Sheer a big thumbs up! The shade is great - a lovely juicy papaya-esque coral that gives lips a natural pop of colour which is suitable enough for daytime wear and for Spring and Summer. It's versatile and neutral enough to go with any outfit which is always a plus; it's a real no-fuss shade! Of course, I'm well aware that MAC lipsticks are now £15, but hey, when has a price increase ever stopped anyone buying these gorgeous products?

What do you think of See Sheer? What's your favourite MAC lustre lipstick?

    1. I know! It's so hard to rein it in there as well! I always end up coming away with so much more than I originally planned, haha xx

  2. I love See Sheer ! I agree, its not so much grapefruit pink, I find it more coral-ish. Great review !
