MAC Lady Danger Lipstick

Hello IMBB Cuties, today I am here with a review of the MAC Lady Danger lipstick. A few weeks ago, I was at the MAC store, asking them whether by chance they had the Kissable Lip Color in the shade ‘Strut Your Stuff’ from their Peacocky collection which was launched quite a while back. I saw this liquid lip color on a friend of mine and I asked her what it was and she showed me this long, slick glass tube and said that it was a liquid lip color from that collection of MAC. So, my favourite MUA at MAC remembered that particular shade but they didn’t have any stock of the same. I was also not expecting them to have the shade in stock after so many months. Then he said, “Wait, we have a lipstick that looks similar, from our permanent range”. And that’s when he swatched Lady Danger on my hand. I was like “Wow – That’s a really awesome colour. But I wonder if I would really be able to carry it off.” To which he answered, “Why not, you’re a total lip person and you carry off all colours so well.” So, after giving it a thought, I decided to take the plunge and get Lady Danger lipstick for myself. See some photos, before I tell you guys more about this amazing lipstick

This lipstick is part of the permanent range from MAC and is an awesome bright coral-red colour in matte texture. It has the MAC signature vanilla fragrance and in my opinion, is a dare-to-wear red that totally stands out and draws all the attention to the lips. It’s a real attention-grabber kind of neon bright red. Be sure to be the belle of the ball when you wear this. One does really need loads of courage and self-confidence to carry it off and you can be sure you will be asked what you are wearing on your lips. See some skin swatches and lip swatches:

Let me try and sum up the Pros and Cons :

Pros of MAC Lady Danger Lipstick

• Is an awesome bright coral-red colour.
• Though it’s a matte texture, it glides smoothly and evenly over lips.
• Gives amazing high and full coverage with just a few strokes.
• Lasts for over 4 to 5 hours and even through meals, fading evenly and lightening out just a shade or two less brighter.
• I don’t feel the need to wear a lip balm underneath nor a lip gloss over it.
• Is part of the permanent range from MAC.

Cons of MAC Lady Danger Lipstick

• You need to feel really comfortable with yourself to carry off such a bright red. It’s purely a matter of personal choice.
• Sometimes, availability is an issue.

*Right – without flash* (added a bit more blush and brow bone highlighter for this pic)

Verdict: If all my lipsticks had to walk the ramp, Lady Danger would surely be the show-stopper! If you are looking for a really bright shade that is inbetween coral and red, mainly for parties/weddings/the festive season/evening wear, then look no further and pick up Lady Danger from MAC.

Awww thank you so very much, Bee, you are so sweet, all of you guys really make me feel great….love you’ll for that. I’m wearing Chambor Dazzle Transferproof Smooth eye pencil in Dazzle Black (but there’s no shimmer in it). It’s an amazing dark, blackest black. Also, these days I’m loving the new Avon Liqui Glide eye pencils, the black one is really a deep black and it goes on with feather-light touch, so no pulling & tugging. :yahoo: :yahoo:

Tina, you can try Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks, they have quite a number of reds there in different hues, and the texture is awesome too. Also, see Rati’s post yesterday – Revlon has also launched quite a few new shades and there are some reds there too. Best of luck.
