Product Review: MAC Kinda Sexy Lipstick

Monday, August 06, 2018

     I'm slowly building my MAC lipstick arsenal. My first shade was Girl About Town which was a 'pasalubong' pa from my cousin years ago. During that time, I was so obsessed with MAC lipstick to the point that I want to hoard or buy all the shades once there's a new collection. I know it's crazy but a girl can never have too many lipsticks, right?!

     But then I realized that I only need to splurge on the shades that I really want and will suit my skin tone. After all, a lipstick, in general, has a shelf-life of two years after the first swipe and if I will hoard that much, some or all will just be sitting in my drawer waiting to be tossed. I already have a red, pink, and purple shade of MAC lipstick and this time I want a neutral one that I can use every day. Guess what, I've found the perfect neutral shade that I can sport with or without makeup- MAC Kinda Sexy!

     MAC Kinda Sexy is a neutral pinky-rose with a matte finish. It has a pretty and wearable color. No shine and no brown undertones once applied.

Sporting the lipstick with minimal makeup here

What I like:
  • The packaging is simple. I have a thing on black bullet lipstick/s so this one is a plus for me.
  • It has a pretty neutral shade that complements my skin tone. I like that the color does not wash me out in photos even if I only have minimal makeup (eyeliner and eyebrow).
  • MAC Kinda Sexy has a matte formula.
  • It is pigmented and goes opaque on my lips with one to two swipes.
  • It's easy to apply. No need to warm it up. Glides smoothly on my lips during application.
  • I like that the formula does not emphasize the lines on my lips.
  • No bleeding or smudging after application.
  • The scent- it is sweet like vanilla but not overpowering.
  • Lasts 6 hours on my lips.
  • Does not dry my lips.
  • This shade can be dubbed as my MLBB- My lips but better!
  • There are a batch and manufacturing date printed on it.

What I don't like:
  • The price is steep for budget-conscious individuals.

Will I repurchase: Yes, because I'm already halfway the tube.

     I give this a 5/5 rating. This is the perfect nude shade with no brown undertones. I've been wearing this almost every day and since I'll finish a tube in less than a year, I can say it's expensive for a cheapskate like me. Even if the formulation does not dry my lips,  I still apply a lip balm underneath to keep my lips moisturized.

Do you have a nude lipstick from MAC? What's your favorite nude lipstick? 

Good Times!~
