sheer makeup

Sephora customers often prefer the following products when searching for sheer makeup.

Sheer makeup is a great way to cover up blemishes, dark circles under your eyes, and other imperfections. The main difference between sheer and full-coverage makeup is the amount of pigment in the products. Sheer makeup isn’t about covering everything up—it’s about blending away the imperfections to give you a natural look.

Great lipstick! Beautiful sheer, long lasting!...I like the matte formula best of the CL line, followed by the sheers I got. They're super pigmented and wear well for a sheer lipstick.

Glide on this sheer lip formula’s creamy-smooth nourishing finish. With a complex blend of natural oils and seed butters, it enhances the lips’ moisture for a protective effect against dryness.

Decent powder. Very sheer coverage. Not sure if it’s worth the price....It smells like the jo Malone English pear perfume, it’s really good though, it looks like your skin but better, doesn’t look powdery or cakey.

I watched an Urban Decay employee demo these live and thought they looked nice then as well. However, these are super sheer and don’t have much color payoff even when built up. ...Sheer, dewy finish, not powdery or sparkly...It gives a beautiful pinky plum tint (not brown, I don’t know why the color is called that!) and a sheer, dewy finish, not powdery. It doesn’t last forever but I throw it in my bag and reapply as needed on both cheeks and lips for a boost.
