Mac lady danger Lipstick review

Lipstick shades such as Orange and orangy red were in rage like five years ago, that time when I came across Mac Lady Danger Lipstick at one of my friends place, I was like ” Damn it is such a bright red! ” . As you all know that I am a huge fan of red lipstick, I told myself that I’ve got to buy it this time! But then, I had already bought Mac ruby woo then, so going out of my budget to get another mac lipstick was out of my zone. Never mind, this time when Nykaa had it’s Mac anniversary sale where they were offering a free mac lipstick on purchase of Rs 3000/ . I had to jump in. I for no doubt chose the shade – Lady danger , and got it delivered in a very sophisticated package by Nykaa. I am finally ready to give you all a comprehensive review on Mac Lady Danger Lipstick. So lets get started…

Mac lady danger
Mac matte lipstick- Mac Lady Danger

About the shade –
Mac lady danger is a Vivid bright coral-red (Matte) . I would say that it is a vibrant red lipstick with an orange undertone which makes it stand out. Would look great on lighter skin tone as compared to deeper skin tone. But I am not saying that it wont suit darker skin tone, it depends on how you carry it 😉

Price: Rs. 1500 on Nykaa website

What I like about Mac Lady Danger Lipstick

  • The shade is bright and uplifts the face instantly
  • It falls under mac matte lipstick collection, but it is much easier to work on as compared to other matte lipstick.
  • It does not dry out the lips
  • The pigmentation of the lipstick is amazing
  • It last for up to 5 to 6 hours without smudging
  • Love the signature scent of mac lipsticks

What I don’t like about Mac Lady Danger Lipstick

  • There are many other drugstore brand that have similar shade in market now.
  • It’s on a bit expensive side.
  • The shade may look too loud for a day out.

Wrapping up….

If you are someone with fair skin or someone who loves to experiment with different shades of red then you should definitely check out this shade. Don’t jump in and buy. Visit Mac store , get it swatch on your lips and only then make your final decision.

Also, there are tons of mac lady danger dupes that you can find in drug store brands. If you are in low budget , and looking to try a shade similar to lady danger then definitely go for Nyx Idie flick. It’s almost the same shade as Mac lady Danger, but half the price. 🙂

My experience with the product-
I was pretty excited when I received my product. I was looking for a rich red lipstick shade on a more affordable side, and around that time when I saw that Nykaa had recently launched their ultra matte lipstick, I could not hold myself. I had to try it! It was the shade ‘Marilyn’ that got me hooked. The shade is totally the kind of red I was looking for. Has a blue undertone to it with a hint of raspberry pink.
The first time I tried the lipstick, I was totally blown away with the color, texture and pigmentation of the product, but was later on let down with the amount of lipstick that kept transferring through out the day.The lipstick is not transfer proof, but interestingly the color stays on the lips throughout the day, meaning, it has a strong staining power that no mater how much the lipstick transfers, it’ll still look like you have a good amount of color on. Considering the price, even though it’s fairly priced, I just feel that it came with better staying power. In terms of the color of the lipstick, I am 100 percent happy, but the way it transfers made me pretty upset. I feel the product would be a great option for photo-shoots, but not so great to wear it on a special occasions or for a long day out.
