MAC Kinda Sexy Swatch, Makeup Millennials

Last November, a generous friend of mine asked me to choose between Russian Red and Kinda Sexy as a gift. I have always been in search for that perfect nude or neutral lip color, so I leaped at the chance to own MAC’s Kinda Sexy.

Kinda Sexy is a matte nude lipstick by MAC with a warm pinkish beige hue. It looks darker in the tube, and lighter once applied.  Personally, I think the name suits the shade, because Kinda Sexy is exactly how it makes you feel.  This lipstick looks and feels classic and expensive, and is perfect with an A-line skirt and some pearls or a bodycon dress and oversized sunglasses.

What I love about this lipstick is its versatility.  Kinda Sexy can be dressed up or down, worn as part of a natural everyday look or paired with a dark smoky eye make-up for a glamorous night out.  The matte formula is very opaque, and completely covers my naturally dark lip color.  I’ve worn glossy and shiny nudes before and they can’t cover the dark pigmentation around my lips.  Kinda Sexy is like a creamy lip paint that is completely opaque and gives that vibrant pop of color.

One bit of advice?  Take great care of your lips.  If they are chapped or cracked, this lipstick will definitely bring out those dry lines.

Retail price is $16.  Kinda Sexy can be purchased at MACCosmetics.com, or fine retailers such as Nordstrom, Saks, and Bloomingdales.
