Recently, I have been on the hunt for the perfect natural lipstick. I am red and bright lipstick obsessed, but sometimes it's nice to go for a more natural look. I searched through so many different brands, from Chanel to Bourjois, but seemed to have no hope until a trip to Selfridges where i found myself gazing over the MAC counter (oh it is heaven).

Firstly, tried Faux and Patisserie but both of these came up way too light on me and made me and my pale complexion look 'washed out'. However, I am a sucker for a MAC lipsticks so knew i'd eventually find something to fulfill my natural lipstick needs. AND I DID...

MAC's Kinda Sexy is a neutral peachy-nude and is matte formulated. As this is a matte shade, i was worried that it might stick to dry patches but applying a lip balm before hand really helps to stop this. I found it very long lasting, (I even went for a cup of tea after trying it on and it did not budge, which was great!) The colour is gorgeous and is the perfect neutral shade for me. Since i am very pale,i need lipsticks with colour to brighten up my face and this shade works wonders. It has a peach tone but is still simple and natural, making it wearable everyday.

The lipstick comes in the original black and silver packaging as it's from the regular range. MAC describes the shade as a pinky-rose, to which i have to disagree, it is much more peach. The pigmentation is excellent however, and leaves a great opaque colour. I adore it!

If you're pale like me (or i also think this shade would be great on darker complexions) and need a lipstick with colour but don't want to wear a big bold lip, then i would definitely suggest trying out this shade. It really is kinda sexy...
