It happened again guys! Last Friday, I went to the MAC Pro store to look for new goodies to bring home. “I’m not going to buy a lipstick this time,” I said out loud. Polish Fiend was there; she heard me.
It was all going according to plan, but then Lady Danger ($17.50) followed me home. It really did.
MAC Lady Danger Lipstick
Lady Danger is a matte bright coral red. It has just enough orange in it to make it modern and on trend this season. This lipstick has been on my wish list for a really long time, and I’m glad it’s over. This is the kind of lipstick you wear when you’re looking for trouble. I’d wear this for a special occasion, or on days when I’m feeling extra sassy. Do you have those days, too? Careful though; this one’s a jaw dropper. Want proof? Exhibit A: my slack-jawed kitteh.
This is my first matte lipstick from MAC, and it’s a good one. The colour goes on completely opaque with just a single swipe. Within the first couple of hours, Lady Danger wears comfortably on my lips (similar to the Joe Fresh matte lipstick), but it does wear drier as the day goes on. I suggest putting on a good lip balm in between touch ups to keep your lips in good shape.
A lipstick colour like this deserves to be the centre of attention, so keep everything else soft and subdued. Here are some tips on how to pull off the look.
Here is a swatch of Lady Danger without lip liner (it doesn’t really need one as it doesn’t slide around on the lips).
