This was the second lipstick I picked up during this months ‘accidental’ MAC haul.. ANOTHER nude. I literally never wear nudes so why I keep buying them I have no idea but I found a swatch of this online and it looked so good on everyone that reviewed it that it just sneaked into my basket.. I don’t know what to tell you.
I am pleased that’s it not a straight up nude, it’s more of a neutral peach than anything and I think that unlike the rest I might actually wear this one. It’s matte (which I love.. matte = long wearing) and I can totally see why it’s been given the name ‘Kinda Sexy’ cause it’s so very 90s supermodel. Unlike a nude this actually brings colour to the face rather than the opposite and gives a kind of sexy, demure glow. It’s not full on sex kitten, it’s somewhere between the girl next door and a Victorias Secret model.. not very ‘try hard’ and doesn’t warrant heavy makeup elsewhere to balance it out. I just love it. I wont harp on about packaging or scent, we’ve all sampled a MAC lipstick or two I’m sure but I do love them.. if for no other reason than they look so darn cute all lined up in a row. MAC isn’t that much better than anything else so if your budget wont stretch don’t think you’re missing anything formula wise it really is just the sheer volume of choice that takes me there.. as well as the collector in me.
