Red Alert: The Return of the Clear Red Lip

A while back I wrote a post on the best lip products to help you achieve that gorgeous "clear red" lip - sheer and light, but juicy and saturated. Well, it's time to add another product to the list: MAC See Thru Lip Color in Secret Crush.

See Thru Lip Color is a gel-based stain that goes on sheer and builds easily for more depth of color. Unlike many other stains, it's not drying at all.

Secret Crush is a translucent berry red, shimmer-free, that makes you look like you just finished a cherry ice. On its own, it gives you that "just bitten" look, and topped with clear gloss, it creates a juicy red pout that's bright and playful -- it packs a punch without being too dramatic.

Plus, the stain lasts much longer than gloss or lipstick, so it's perfect for long days (or nights) when you don't want to have to constantly reapply.

See Thru Lip Color ($14) is available in Secret Crush and two other shades -- Tender Tryst (sheer pearly plum) and Loving Touch (sheer pearly light pink).
