LOW PRICED LOCAL DUPES OF MAC KINDA SEXY!


As promised on Instagram I have my dupes post here at last. The infamous MAC Kinda Sexy is one of the best nudes I have come across, it's a matte peachy nude with the slightest pink undertones, very pretty on it's own and some lovely colors can be created if layered over or under other colors, best suited for NC25-30 or lighter, as it may wash out darker complexions[For reference I'm NC15]. If you're still not willing to spend around $20-$28 on a MAC lipstick only to find it doesn't suit your skintone, you can try out the almost exact dupes I have found in the same shade and finish from brands which would cost you almost half or one third the price. 

So the first dupe I found is from Color Studio Professional Pure Matte lipstick range in the shade "So Sexy" [ sounds similar as well :p] almost identical, if you swatch it side by side with MAC Kinda Sexy, the difference is hard to tell, but CSP So Sexy is just a tad more pink than the MAC one which leans more towards peach in comparison. Priced at PKR750=$8 the texture is a good matte, not very dry but comfortable to wear.
The second dupe which is even closer is from Medora from their matte range called "Demure" number 561. This is almost the exact peachy nude shade as MAC and costs only a $1= PKR100, the texture is a bit drying but that's to be expected considering the price, nevertheless the shade is 100% the same so if you wanna check it out I'd recommend looking for this in your local cosmetic shops.
I own all three of these but the one I reach out most to Color Studio Pro So Sexy just personal preference I guess!
