MAC is a place where I shop in only if there is something I’ve done tons of research on and want because they are so highly priced here in Malaysia. That being said, I only own a few products from them and most of them are lipsticks. I have to say that from the products I’ve tried from MAC, there is always something similar that I can get from the drugstore for a fraction of the price. However, there is just something about MAC lipsticks that I love. All the lipsticks I’ve tried from them are amazing quality, super creamy and pigmented. My latest addition is MAC Matte Lipstick in Lady Danger.
MAC Lady Danger Lipstick is a bright, orange-red matte. I love using orange-reds for parties, events, dinners, etc because they’re gorgeous and different from a typical red lip. Orange-red lipsticks also work so well on my yellow-based, medium skin tone to brighten up my complexion while keeping everything looking pulled together. I also love a good matte lipstick as matte lipsticks typically last on the lips longer, and the matte effect is so in trend right now.
MAC Lady Danger is super creamy and glides on the lips effortlessly. It is so pigmented and one swipe of the product is enough to give the actual colour of the lipstick bullet on your lips. One thing I find with this though, is that it’s more on the thick side of a creamy formula. Eventhough it’s a thicker creamy formula, it doesn’t feel heavy on the lips at all. Since it is a matte lipstick, it does tend to cling onto the fine lines of my lips. I always use a lip balm underneath when my lips aren’t looking too nice. It is very lightweight on the lips and doesn’t feel uncomfortable.
I feel like I only ever wear a red lip during special occasions but with this lipstick, I find myself grabbing it almost every single day. For every day wear, I like to either put on a slippery coat of lip balm underneath to dilute the colour, or to just dab the lipstick on my lips instead of swiping it on, and blend with my fingers to give a sheer wash of colour.
It’s the most beautiful orange-red lipstick I own, and it’s very creamy and comfortable on the lips. MAC Lady Danger has definitely taken the place as my favourite MAC lipstick, bumping MAC Morange (a straight-up, bright orange) to second!
