Review and Swatches of MAC Lipstick Lady Danger
By Contributor: Samannita
Whooooshhhhh…..it’s fire engine red! This was my first reaction when I applied lady danger on my lips. I didn’t try it store and just grabbed it and I really don’t regret buying it but I personally think Lady Danger is the just one step ahead of Chili. I mean if you could change the colour of your lipstick by a few shades then it could be changed into Chili. I know I am making no sense but blame it on the lipsticks obsession..it takes all the senses out of me! Let’s start with the review and swatches.
MAC describes lady danger as Vivid Bright Coral Red..a classic matte finish lipstick that is perfect to create a retro look.
Chili is a red lipstick with a strong hint of tangerine in it. I think it will suit girls with fair to medium skin tones as it will be too bright and neonish for dark skin. I looks more orange than red on my lips and adds a pop of colour to my face. But wearing it during the day will be a big danger for the ladies unless used as a stain. The lipstick is perfect for night outs and clubbing with golden, bronze or copper eyeshadows. The pigmentation of the lipstick is worth mentioning. One swipe and yes you are ready to go.
The lipstick is from permanent line so the packaging is also like the permanent one in black and silver case with vanilla fragrance. The over black packaging differentiates MAC lipsticks from other brands.
The texture is matte but is quite soft and glides super smoothly on lips. The lipstick never tends to bleed, after all its matte (silly me) but semi-transferable on cups and glasses. I never feel the tugging or pulling of lips while applying it. The lipstick stays on for 5-6 hours without any fading.
Swatches in natural light. Somehow it turned up more red than orange. See some day light swatches of it here

VNA Rating: 3/5
Overall thoughts: MAC Lady Danger Lipstick is an orange toned red shade and I personally love want to give it 4.5 out of 5 but as it suits only fair skin with yellow undertones so I can’t say its a universal flattering shade that will suit everyone. Nope I can’t and there lies the reason for the low rating. But if you love the shade then my recommendation is do try it in the store first before you buy it as you may not be lucky like me and may end up spending 990 bucks on a lipstick that you can’t wear.
