MAC Lipstick - Kinda Sexy

Another day, another Mac lipstick. I said on Instagram a couple of days ago that it's one of my life goals to own every single matte lipstick from Mac and I am deadly serious. Thanks to this one I'm 17 down and still goin' strong!

Kinda Sexy is a medium rosy pink shade with light warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. I'm feeling a little more inspired as of late to be more creative with my face and although this isn't exactly an "out there" colour, it's definitely out of my comfort zone. I gravitate to reds more than anything and if I'm in a particularly wild mood, I'll opt for a brown toned nude but a pink is almost unheard of. It seems weird that I feel more comfortable in a bright red lip than I do with a pretty standard pink shade but hey ho - that's just how it is!

The finish is in between a satin and a matte. It's a creamy formula that applies beautifully and although it does dry to some extent it never really sets. It does apply a little unevenly but another layer in and you're good to go. It fades evenly and doesn't leave a stain so feel free to demolish a big ol' bowl of pasta in the knowledge that this won't be patchy or smudged all over your face afterwards. Without eating etc it lasted around 4 hours on me before disappearing entirely.

I can't see me reaching for this very much at all in the next few months, especially as I've already started stocking up on berry tones and burgundy shades but I'm glad I have this in my collection. It makes for a nice alternative to everything else in my collection.

What's your favourite lipstick right now? Do you also have a life goal to collect as many Mac lipsticks as possible or is that just me?

  1. This is such a stunning shade! I feel like every girl needs a staple red lipstick in their collection. Atm I'm loving Sleek's Matte Me Rioja Red lippy (wearing in my recent Bigger Lips post) but am yet to try Macs out. Thanks to you I'm desperate too!! Will check out the rest of your blog for sure, found you through Bloglovin xo

  2. This shade looks gorgeous! I love everything about MAC lipsticks.

  3. This looks like such a gorgeous shade! I was really working on my Mac collection last year, but recently I've been a bit slack. Need to get back to working on my collection - imagine how awesome it'd be to have them all! :) xxx

  4. That's such a lovely shade! I'm currently loving Urban Decay Backtalk which is a comfort matte <3

  5. Owning every single shade of MAC lipstick would be a dream! I love my ever growing collection and always seems to find new ones to lust over! This shade wouldn't suit me, but it certainly is pretty. x
