Feeling Myself

MAC Feeling Myself Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a light, caramel brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging. The bullet felt firmer, denser but not stiff or difficult to work with, as the formula was just creamy enough to apply comfortably. There was a very, very small amount of product that sat in my deeper lip lines but wasn’t visible to my eyes in person (just in the close-up photo). It wore well for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating on me.

Formula Overview

$18.50/0.1 oz. - $185.00 Per Ounce

MAC Lipstick comes in a variety of finishes, and the pigmentation and wear tend to be dependent on the finish. The sheer finishes, like Lustres, tend to wear for only a couple of hours and have sheer coverage (as designed) and are non-drying. Some of the original Matte shades have a stiffer, drier formula, while newer ones have a more velvety, silicone-feel to them, and the latter are creamier, more comfortable to wear, and easier to apply, but most Matte shades are quite pigmented and long-wearing, though some are drying. The Amplified and Satin finishes tend to have good pigmentation, lightly creamy to moderately creamy consistencies with a bit of shine, and moderate to long wear with deeper, richer shades wearing longer. The Frost and Metallic finishes have the most variance between shades with coverage ranging from semi-sheer to opaque with average wear and non-drying to slightly drying formulas. All MAC lipsticks are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.

S'sexy

MAC S’sexy Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a muted, medium rosy brown with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly on my lips without emphasizing my lip texture or sinking noticeably into my lip lines. The lipstick had a lightweight, emollient texture that was thin but not clingy. It lasted well for four and a half hours and was a smidgen hydrating.

Kinkster

MAC Kinkster Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a light-medium, yellow-brown with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The yellow tone of this shade is what makes it uncommon in the makeup world. It was richly pigmented with good, even application that was comfortable to wear. The consistency was smooth, lightly creamy, denser but not too thick, and it spread without tugging on my lips. This shade stayed on nicely for four and a half hours and was non-drying.

It looks like a lot of the shades MAC added for lipsticks were to address the yellow/olive undertones that were lacking (compared to the permanent range)!

I feel like MAC did a really good job with these. And they’ve produced a lighter dupe for Cremini, which interests me greatly — I’ve always kind of thought Cremini would be the perfect nude color for me if it were a bit lighter, and … here it is (and this version is less glossy — bonus!).

I’m excited for Feeling Myself because I missed out on the Aaliyah collection! My skin tone is on the tan side so colours like Feeling Myself and kinkster make perfect nudes for me

The moment I swatched Feeling Myself on the back of my hand, I turned to my buddy who works at our local MAC store and said to her that I thought this looked near identical to the Aaliyah lipstick Try Again! Not wrong!

My favorite one, though? S’Sexy! Only catch is, that when we swatched my tube of Amongst The Fireflies next to it, they are pretty close. Too close? Maybe not…

I bought S’Sexy and it is just a beautiful rosy nude for my nc30 skin tone. (also bought Bad ‘N’ Bare). Tried Feeling Myself at the counter and it completely washed me out.

I also bought S’sexy but my skin is nw20. The rosy tones aren’t that visible on me but that leaves me with an interesting muted nude tone and I love it! Unlike anything else from my collection.

I agree – I don’t wear brown lipstick much at all but I need either russet/red/rosy or strong peach undertones to pull off shades like these. Which is rare.

When I think about “nude” lipstick, I always think about MLBB shades, not beige and brown…

Well, it may not be your MLBB for you but for tan skin like mine, beige and brown shades are nudes. I’m glad MAC is expanding their “nude” lipstick range to include us all.
