MAC Kinda Sexy

Thursday, 18 September 2014

 


In the summer I actually bought my first ever purchase from a MAC store (took my time I know). I have wanted a lipstick for the longest time but I just felt intimidated by going in one of the stores. I guess I feel like I needed to know more about make up in order to actually buy something. However I ventured to Kings Road with my cousin and entered the most friendly store. The ladies in there were lovely and so so helpful. I was looking for a matte nude lipstick. As soon as the lady showed me this shade I knew I wanted it. I originally wanted to look at Shy Girl, but I fell in love with the swatch of Kinda Sexy (what a name eh)
 
Kinda Sexy is a lovely browny nude shade that is perfect for every day. I carry it most days in my bag and I feel like it's so precious as it's my only MAC lipstick (that'll change soon!). It's quite similar to my natural lip colour but it's a tad more brown. I personally really like the matte finish as it's more suitable for most looks. It's perfect for mornings when I'm rushing off to uni or even nights out where I make a bit more of an effort. If you want something natural and simple then I think this is the perfect shade and I can imagine it suits most skin types.
 
Hopefully I'll do a blog post with pictures of me wearing it soon, I want to do one about everyday make up I've been loving recently.
 
Can someone out there please give me tips on how to make lipstick's last longer?? The colour just seems to go and it's really frustrating!! I'm a poor excuse for a girl

  2. I use lipliner and then a layer of Lipcote (you can get it from Primark for £3!) and it doesn't budge, even the really intense purple of MAC Heroine etc doesn't shift.

  4. Some lipsticks just aren't meant to be long lasting! However you should try using a lipliner first on the whole lip area not just the outline and see if that helps. It's a lovely shade but I found the same thing with my Creme Cup shade, it's so moisturising that it doesn't last very well x

  5. I know how you feel! I bought Cockney on Saturday when I was in London and I felt so awkward and nervous about asking. it's a lovely shade! No idea how to make it last longer :(

  6. What a stunning shade! Have you tried dabbing your lips with abit of translucent powder after youve applied the lipstick? It will set it better and mattify the lipstick slightly and make it last longer!
