Everyone loves their Mac’s and this particular lipstick is very dear to me. You see, I was venturing out from my nude colour lipstick phase and having bought Plumful, I quite liked sheer lipsticks. I wanted a coral lipstick but I always felt they looked a bit weird on me.
Mac See Sheer is a Lustre finish lipstick. The colour is a medium tone coral pink. I feel like it looks more orange in the tube than on the lips. It’s definitely a very wearable coral since the colour is a it darker than your usual bright coral lipsticks and also since it’s sheer, it kind of blends with your lip colour.
I don’t have too many coral lipsticks, more peachy ones that end up looking similar on the lips. Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait is a nude base with a lot of shimmer while YSL Corail in Touch and Chanel Liberte are sheer but more orange.
Lustre finishes are sheer but buildable upto medium. With one swipe you get enough colour to warm up your lips but it is uneven. 2-3 swipes and you get that nice coral pink shade. They are glossy and have a nice sheen to them. They are light on the lips and feel very comfortable. Also very hydrating and the perfect thing to wear when your lips aren’t in the best shape. It applies well, glides on very easily and there’s no bleeding or feathering.
It lasts about 4-5 hours if you don’t eat or drink. They do transfer and come off if you eat, so you would need to reapply this a couple of times if you plan on wearing this all day.
I love the vanilla scent and you get 3g for Rs.1100 ($16 in US). To be honest, when I first started using Mac lipsticks, I loved the packaging. Now that I’ve tried so many more, I find it kind of boring and a real pain to differentiate! But they are well built and sleek, I just wish it was easier to tell them apart!
