Thank you for understanding!

I had a hard time deciding between MAC shades See Sheer and Crosswires, but See Sheer has the edge. I’m not that fond of coral lipstick, but I do like those two.

MAC Vegas Volt, which is also on the list, looks straight up orange on me. I will probably return it in a future Back-to-MAC. (I really need to learn not to trust MAC sales associates’ opinions when my gut is telling me something different!)

I recently purchased Dior Addict Lip Tattoo in 451 Natural Coral. I already have three other shades from the same range (Natural Nude, Natural Cherry and Watermelon). With the exception of Watermelon (a limited editition released last summer), which is a bit watery and with a noticeable fragrance, the other ones are the best liquid lipstick/stain formula I’ve ever tried. The thin formula, the pigmentation, staying power, minimal transfer, make them a winner in my book, especially during the hot and humid summer.

Other favorite coral lipsticks: CT Amazing Grace, Bite Beauty High Pigment Lip Pencil in Tulip (I purchased a couple of backups), Tom Ford Giacomo, MAC Crosswires.

See Sheer lipstick is on my list for when I do Back 2 Mac next. It’s one of the few MAC lipsticks I don’t own. I do own Crosswires but a favorite paler pinky coral is MAC Flamingo or Sunny Seoul (now discontinued)!
