I'm using natbib package (\usepackage[round,authoryear]{natbib}) and I want something like:

(Buhusi, 2009; see Bueti, 2011 for review)

If I do \citep[see][for review]{Buhusi,Bueti}, I can get,

(see Buhusi, 2009; Bueti, 2011 for review)

but I want the see X for review only for the last reference. What is the right way to do this?

How about:

(\citealp{Buhusi}; \citealp[see][for review]{Bueti})

If you wanted to automate the insertion of parentheses around the two citations, you could type

\citetext{\citealp{Buhusi}; \citealp[see][for review]{Bueti}}

but it seems (to me at least) easier to just insert the parentheses manually.
