This post has been a long time coming—considering I hauled this lipstick months ago—and the main reason I've been putting it off is because this is one of those products where I feel words (especially the ones that come fumbling from my gob) will never do it justice. However, I think I've been able to come to a fairly accurate description in the past couple of months for this beautiful little lipstick. And by description I mean comparison. Analogy? Though I suppose it's all one in the same, especially if you own and appreciate the beaut I'm about to compare it to.
"See Sheer" is to summer as "Plumful" is to fall.
Boooooooooooom (that's the sound of your mind being blown).
If you don't own "Plumful" and can't comprehend the overwhelming need my above statement should have instilled in your makeup loving soul, then don't fret. I've got you covered here, and here, here too, there was also this time, and that time, this time too, oh yeah and also right here. Seriously, I talk about "Plumful" a lot but not without good reason; it really is a beauty and I can't imagine not having it in my lipstick collection. See what it does to me? Once "Plumful" is on my mind I just can't shut up about it.
Well I'm happy to say that there's a new lipstick in town (read: in my purse) and she goes by the name of "See Sheer". True to all of the M.A.C. Lustre finish lipsticks I've tried, "See Sheer" is lusciously smooth, provides a more-than-sheer-but-less-than-opaque wash of color, and lasts a pretty solid four hours on me. I honestly can't find fault in Lustres from M.A.C. and it's the reason I keep going back for more colors. If I could own them I all I sure as heck would but, hey, that would be a bit excessive (and wonderful, and delightful, and euphoric, and…).
Semi-spoiler alert to anyone with even the slightest deductive abilities as well as watches my YouTube videos and realizes it's almost the end of July: I've been wearing this a stupid amount this past month and can't really see myself abstaining from doing so anytime soon. "See Sheer" is that perfect mix of pink and orange, not at all fussy in terms of look or wear, and a fun pop of color on the lips during these super sweaty summer months (you can see the steam on my glasses in the photo above from my cheeks touching the glass #howembarrassing). I imagine this lipstick would look gorgeous on such a large range of people and I really can't sing its praises enough.
"See Sheer" is, as I said before, the summer to "Plumful"'s fall; the warm to its cool; the love to my life (okay, I think I've gone a little too far there but I think you get my point).
Have you tried M.A.C.'s "See Sheer"?
Love it as much as I do?
What has been your go-to lipstick this summer?
