i loveee Sea Sheer.. it looks fabulous against my NC 45 skin tone.. applied lightly, its perfect for day time, just a tad brighter than a regular nude lip.. perfect summer colour! the only thing thats bad is that since it is a Lustre, it doesnt have staying power.
I went to the MAC counter and asked to see a peach lipstick, a darker color, not a pale peach as these leave me looking washed out. The MAC girl gave me the See Sheer lipstick and topped it with the Bare Necessity lip gloss. This combination is amazing! It's a great corally pink that looks fab with my Asian olive skin! Just what I was looking for- a fun summery lip look. See Sheer is described as a grapefruit pink on MAC's website and I would say that is accurate. Some people has complained that this lipstick seemed too orange, but on my olive skin definitely more just a grapefruit pink color. On its own it is very natural looking on my pigmented lips, maybe a little boring, but a good color for work, especially in the summer since it is part of the lustre lipsticks. Bare Necessity is part of MAC's dazzleglass line and even though it looks brown on the website, it is more of a sparkly apricot nude color, so go by it's description and not the color swatch. It's basically an apricot version of Oh Baby lipglass(which is a sparkly nude) and looks great by itself too. I don't know if I would rebuy See Sheer because as I said before it's just a tad ho hum by itself. Will I use it up? Definitely-I'll wear it to work a lot and the consistency would allow me to wear it in the heat of summer and while I was doing something active outside. Do I feel fabulous when I can pare it with the lipgloss? Absolutely. Packaging great, price decent...4 lippies out of 5.
As others have said, this is the perfect spring/summer color for those with neutral or warm coloring. I am a NW 25 with neutral coloring, have dark brown hair, hazel eyes, and pigmented lips. See Sheer is not at all reddish on me. It's the perfect mix of pink and peach and creates a very soft look. I LOVE this color!
I was looking for a peachy pink color, but this one is dark orange -almost red...I am disappointed. But it's not a terrible color either, so I keep using it from time to time...
Um, I went to Macs online site to find a substitute color for the Discontinued FLOWERPLAY. See Sheer is what was recommended. I don't see any simularity at all!! Are they on crack or what? I NEED a substitute for my fav Flowerplay!!!!
I tried out my friend's See Sheer. I look horrible. It's orange. It doesn't look good if you have a tan. you are just totally washed out. I am guess it might look good on pale skin. But if you get a tan or have some pigment, it won't look good. It also looks weird on my friend because her skin tone is between light to medium.
Lustre is a good formula. I have some lustre lipsticks. They are not drying. That's why I give the overall rating 2 for non drying formula. It's very important lipsticks are not drying, otherwise it's not easy to apply and not wearable. But this color is just a joke.
Thank you MUAers who recommended this lippie based on my coloring! I posted on the MU board that I was looking for a l/s to brighten up my face this summer and posted my pic with it. My hair is dark brown, eyes dark brown, fair to med skin, non-pigmented lips. It is a pinkish coral on me. I was worried about trying coral because I don't want to look like a grandmother or a clown with too bright a color. But because of the pink tones, this is just so pretty, and not overwhelming. My BF even likes it on me! I highly recommend this color for gals with my coloring for the summer. Try it!
I originally had no intention whatsoever to get this lipstick because the tester was all disgusting. However, I had to pick 2 Back2Mac lipsticks, so I picked this one and Vegas Volt. At first I was skeptical about it, but now it is my absolutely favorite day-to-day lipstick. It is sheer, but with color. It is coral red, but no scary at all. I have very pale skin, dark hair, and girly features, so this lipstick makes me feel super "cute". I like it. :)
Rock and Roll! I love, love, love this colour for spring/summer! I have pale skin, dark eyes, and dark hair, and this coral/pinkish colour looks great on me!
I find that ALL lipsticks go redder on me due to my pigmented lips, so if that is the case for you I def. think you should try this colour out. It's bold, yet natural, if that makes any sense. It is easy to pull off day or night. This is now a staple in my collection.
See Sheer is a pretty medium toned corally pink with no shimmer. I am on the fence about this. Chanel Exaltation is similar but has a tad more brown and I find I reach for that one more.
