セクシ- (sexy) 色っぽい (Iroppoi)

Hello. The word for sexy in Japanese is Iroppoi (pronouced "ee-rop-po-ee" with the accent the second syllable). Nowadays though, alot of people opt for the Japanised version of sexy, which would be pronounced: se-ku-shee, with the accent on the first syllable.
Here are the other words you asked for:
pretty: Ki-re-i
wanted: Moto-me Ra-re-te Iru
lovely: Su-te-ki
graceful: Shi-to-yaka
lust: se-i-yoku
sex: sek-kusu
