MAC Kinda Sexy Matte lipstick Review
I love single product reviews. Sometime I don’t want to go through the whole entire collection to find the review on something that I want. And since I blog 5 days a week, it’s appropriate to share single product review especially when I found something so fascinating. I love MAC matte lipsticks. They’re some of the most amazing lipsticks, EVER ! “MAC Kinda Sexy” is one of the most popular MAC lipstick shades. Most of the times, it’s out of stock and you have to put your name on the waiting list to get your hands on this lipstick.
What you see in the bullet is not what you get with MAC kinda sexy. It looks very warm toned, orangey-brown lipstick. But it’s a warm toned brownish-pink lipstick. It’s way more pinkier than how it looks in the bullet.Either way, it fits right in to my style. I love warm toned, brown based nude lipsticks, and I also love pinky nudes as well. So with this lipstick you get the best of both worlds. It’s a mixture of brown-nude and pink-nude lipstick.
When I saw swatches online, I didn’t see any shimmer in it, and I didn’t expect it either, since it’s a matte lipstick. Even with my bare eyes it’s not noticeable at all, but when I photographed it with the professional camera, there’s definitely a lot of shimmer in this lipstick, even though it is a matte lipstick. I’m guessing that’s the reason why it doesn’t look chapped and dry like other matte lipsticks. If you see in the HD picture, you will be able to see exactly what I mean, but it isn’t noticeable at all on the lips. The shimmer is just like their lipstick packaging.
Nonetheless MAC kinda sexy is a gorgeous gorgeous shade, I haven’t noticed shimmer in any of the other swatches that I have seen. This lipstick shade is very sophisticated but sassy/trendy at the same time. For my skin tone it makes a perfect brown based pink nude lipstick. I absolutely love it. The packaging is just like all other MAC lipsticks.I’m pretty sure it is going to be one of my favorite nude lipstick for fall/winter.
MAC matte lipsticks are very long-lasting. They’re not as long lasting as some of matte liquid lipsticks are, but they do last a lot longer than a regular lipstick. I don’t find them drying at all, whatsoever, however some people do complain, that the formula is drying, the only MAC matte lipstick that I find drying is “Ruby woo” but it’s a gorgeous shade, and still not more drying than a liquid matte lipstick. I guess that depends on the condition of your lips and your preference as well. I personally find them to be some of the creamiest matte lipsticks.
I hope you find this post helpful.
