Favourite sheer lipstick swatches

Mags is a champion of bright lipstick and it looks great on her. My lips are uneven and for me to get a good result with a bright, bold lipstick, I'd have to spend a lot of quality time with concealer and lip liner in the mornings and to be honest I just don't have the time or the patience. I'd probably have to blow my nose five minutes later and wreck the whole thing. I also get the feeling that I look like The Joker when I wear red lipstick.

So, I tend to favour sheer and/or nude lipsticks. These are my favourites. Cue some pics of swatches on my big freckly hand!

From left to right and top to bottom: 17 Mirror Shine in Flirtini, Peace, and Bee-Hive (Bee-Hive is quite a good dupe for MAC Hue)

Left to right and top to bottom: MAC in (a very well loved) Cute-ster from the Hello Kitty Collection, Marquise D' from the Wonder Woman Collection, and Hue.

Left to right: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy and Romance 

No.7 Sheer Temptation in Pretty Please. This is a new purchase. I read about these lipsticks and thought they might be good dupes for Chanel's Rouge Coco Shines, and if this one is anything to go by, I actually prefer them. Look how shiny it is! Like a cross between lipstick and lipgloss.

If you have any sheer lipstick recommendations for me, leave them in the comments please!
