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.
I love this lipstick!!!! I was always scared of using lipsticks but this one is amazing. Its the perfect shade for me (i have dark hair and eyes and medium-light skin tone) Its a really nice colour and i definitely recommend this :)
I'm NW20, very dark brown hair and eyes and I never thought coral was for me... but this is my new HG. It's very flattering and easy to wear, but just ever so slightly unexpected and offbeat because it's not a generic brown or pink. Because it's a Lustre it's buildable colour but I do find it very pigmented.
I like it with Ladyblush and Point Black flicky eyeliner. Don't usually find the Lustre lipsticks need a gloss but Lychee Luxe lipglass or Slicked Pink lipgelee both look pretty nice if that's the road you want to go down.
This is a very beautiful color but I'm debating on whether it's the right color for me or not. I have a feeling it will work so much better in the summer as I am somewhat pale right now but I don't know if I want to make the mistake of keeping it and it doesn't work like I'm hoping. It's pretty bright yet sheer at the same time. Very coral/reddish.
MAC’s shade description is quite right “pinked grapefruit”. You know when toy slice red grapefruit in half if that reddish color had a hint of pin it would be this color See Sheer, nice summery coral color (reddish pinky-coral color). It is warmer color, and would be really ideal for the red heads and the ladies with darker skin tones. Color is buildable, you can just dab it, or put several layers to make it darker. Lustre formula is quite hydrating, but I am giving it 4 lippies because staying power is not so great (after 2 hours I have to reapply it, and I am not one of those girls that lick their lip all the time, and from whom lips lipsticks disappear). It also tends to bleed. I do not think I will repurchase it, because I will not use it every day, so I think it will last. For reference NC 25, green eyes, dark brown hair.
EDIT: Took of 1 lippie because staying power is zero, and a second one because it bleeds like crazy. Very messy!!!!!!
Usually I really enjoy MAC's lip products but I found this particular colour and texture didn't mesh well. It looks really cute with natural makeup and feathery mascara with a touch of liquid eyeliner, as it's a very 50's colour lipstick (I thought.)
The colour is corally-plum with a hint of pink, which changes on loads of people. (All my girlfriends have tried it and it has appeared in about 10 different shades!) The texture didn't suit me, as i'm a matte to semi-matte chick, but it's a run of the mill MAC colour.
I would reccomend a sheer 'Hue' which is a babydoll pink, or the matte 'Please Me' which is more red-magenta.
This is a really pretty bright pinky coral color that can be applied very sheerly. This is my only MAC regular lipstick, and I love the smell, although it may be strong for someone who is sensitive to smells. Because this color is a little bright for me (I usually do a very nautral lip color), I apply balm first and then sheerly apply this color to get a perfect sheer coral pink lip color. This is a Lustre, and I would definitely reccommend this!
I'm surprised by the negative reviews; to me this seems like an average, wearable lipstick that's a standard reddish pink with a little bit of beige-y brown thrown in. I don't think "pinked grapefruit" is an accurate description on my lips because it has too much red in the pigment. I found this color to be fairly bright and always wore it with a balm underneath, which created a very fresh, pretty reddish-pink effect that is more suitable for daytime. I am, however, quite pale, so someone with darker skin might be able to pull off the full effects of this lipstick better. I'm also warm-toned, which is probably why the color complimented my features; I'm not sure if a cool-toned consumer would look good in this.
I love MAC's black bullet lipstick packaging. It has some heft to it when you hold it in your hand, and I know it's metal because I was once carrying some magnets (physics class; don't ask) in my bag and found that this lipstick, as well as my keys, had attached quite strongely to them. I also like the slight vanilla scent.
If I ever do need a standard lipstick again, this is the one I'd purchase. I think the price is reasonable, the formula is smooth and moisturizing, and it's an overall good product. I am, however, more of a tinted lip balm girl and am much more drawn to MAC's Slimshines, despite the flimsy packaging and lack of product for your money.
Besides this, I only gave See Sheer a 3/5 because it could last a little longer on the lips, plus it's annoying to always have to pair it with a balm just to tone down the color.
