MAC Lipstick in 'Lady Danger' - Review + FYI FOTD!

23 September 2014

Behold Lady Danger's in the house!

I've been wanting to own Lady Danger from the day I've known MAC- this & Ruby Woo. You put a product on at store & Bamm! It's like made for you.. but then your wallet debit card screams at you for even thinking of spending $40 on a lipstick. That's a week's food, minus the breakfast. Those vanilla cluster oats are seriously expensive!

When ‘I love beauty’ website had it on special, I just couldn't hold myself. The Irony! After shipping charges I saved about $4 in total. Worth waiting a few years for a lippy? Why no sale at MAC!
Oh RIP ‘I Love Beauty’. That online store shut it's doors servers last month :(

On MAC website ‘Lady Danger’ is described as ‘Vivid-bright Coral Red with Matte finish’.

My Experience:
- Another matte in the collection Wohoo!
- More orange than coral red on me. It looks different on different skin tones. More of an orange-y red on cooler skintone. Can you believe ‘Seudeberry’ is a coral red too? What's with the yellow in my skin tone? Cancels out any red!

- Less dry than Ruby Woo. Glides on lips easy.
- Opaque, full color in one swipe.
- Wears an easy 5+ hours on me. Leaves a heavy stain behind.
- Standard MAC lipstick bullet – Classic
- Part of permanent line so available at all MAC counters

FYI I'm NC 30-35 in MAC (Warm tones)
Verdict: Pure Love! A super bright orange based warm red with matte finish. Universal shade that suits all skin tones. Matte finish can be drying on some but nothing that a good exfoliation & dash of lip balm can't fix (FYI Posting a DIY Lip scrub recipe soon!). At least, a tad bit less drying than Ruby Woo. Long wearing & super bright!

Price: NZD $40.00 (So much cheaper in other countries)

Buy from: MAC counters worldwide
