MAC Kinda Sexy Matte Lipstick


I can’t tell you enough how much i adore this color. Kinda Sexy is the perfect nude with a hint of warm peachy pink… It’s more in the neutral family, making it a warm nude pink to wear with literally any make-up look. The color will differ depending on your lip’s pigmentation, but i’ve seen it be more flattering on rosy lips or lips that have a big of light brown (or straight on nude) pigmentation to it. The color just comes off better. If your lips aren’t in any range of those pigmentations, then i suggest muting your lips out with concealer, something like MAC’s lip erase or  you can use any foundation with full coverage so that this color has something to really grab onto. This is the kinda color that’ll hug your lips and make them really pop.

This lipstick is absolutely beautiful for a dark smokey eye! Its matte finish doesn’t dry up but still it is advisable to use a lip balm so that the color doesn’t dry your lips out.

This lip color adds freshness to your out of the bed look and looks natural and kissable. Like all of Mac lipsticks, this one too has a fantastic vanilla-ish fragrance which literally drives me crazy!

I use MAC prolong lip pencil in Shore Leave, which is a pink-coral with a matte finish, to keep the lipstick on my lips in place.

Its very smooth on application & glides on easily, and as mentioned before, is very pigmented. It has a very pleasant vanilla fragrance. It doesn’t settle into fine lines of the lips. Its a pretty long wearing lipstick. It stayed on me for around 5-6 hours without meals in between. It does dries out the lips a tad bit after a long wear but doesn’t makes it uncomfortable. Just swipe a balm on the centre of the lips if required and its as good as new!

It looks great with a clear, nude or pinkish gloss too! Be careful not have chapped lips when applying this shade as it will bring out the lines & the dryness of the lips. This shade is great for fair to medium complexion.



  • sexy nude pink shade
  • smooth on application
  • yummy vanilla fragrance
  • doesn’t settle into fine lines
  • long wear
  • goes with nude/ clear glosses 


  • need to dab with the finger or brush to blend in the color
  • may dry the lips
  • have to, have to, have to use lip balm!!
  • will wash out dark complexion girls


I just love this lipstick! Its my best to go nude lipstick. It also is the perfect lipcolor to use if your doing a smokey eye!

It may be a little difficult to pull of with some girls even if it suit you because it is matte & it is very light. It also looks different on different skin tones… So make sure you wear it & check it in the daylight before you buy!
