MAC Lady Bug Lipstick: Review and Swatches

Lady Bug Lipstick By MAC Review and Swatches

By Contributor: Agnirupa

I can smell spring in the air can’t you!? I already have the ickies to get my neon and bright nail paints and vests and clutches out along with glossy bright lipsticks , breaking away from my ongoing nude phase when cult reds like my favorite Russian red even feels too heavy and too much (yes beat me up!) I had to opt for a underrated beautiful red from MAC! Lady Bug (its honestly the cutest of all the MAC names) which I will review and swatch today.

MAC Claims: MAC describes Lady Bug as a yellow tomato red in a Lustre finish

MAC Lady Bug Lipstick Review

The color Lady Bug is indeed a gorgeous yellow-based red, not so bright and OTT that it will eclipse everything else of your ensemble, neither so insignificant that nobody will stop and ask what lipstick you are wearing. It keeps both sides of the scale and is a winner for both day and night time looks, brightening up any tired face instantly.

The pigmentation is semi-sheer to moderate, can be built up to opaque in 2-3 swipes easily without feeling heavy or caked up easily hides minor lip imperfections or pigmentation.

The finish is one of my favorites (me being a glossy pout gal) the Lustre finish which fails to find favor with some for their lesser pigmentation and glossier finish, the 2 qualities which make me love them most. This 1 is also no exception, smooth, glossy, non-thick, non-sticky, applies easily even on the driest lips without balm and does not emphasize fine lines/dry patches. A juicy hawt pout!

In staying power it is less than other finishes from MAC, lasting for an average of 2-3 hours and wipes away without any stain at the end of a meal.

Being a part of permanent range, Lady Bug comes in their regular black-silver packaging with sleek body and tight click-cap, user friendly and easy to carry.

VNA Rating: 4.5/5

Do I recommend? MAC Lady Bug Lipstick is great. For the perfect glossy bright uber-gorgeous red pout fix, look nowhere else than this very non-hyped, underrated MAC red! I swear if I got a 50 paisa coin for every time I come across Ruby Woo daily in the blogosphere I am literally sick of it (sold it off too!) and though I am not comparing by any means (the finishes and colors are poles apart!) am just saying this 1 deserves some hype and praise as well. For first timers peering nervously and wishing they could carry off a red without being glaringly OTT this might be your answer. So do check out!

I hope you liked the shade as much as I do. Till my next review do stay tuned (I know its not a tv just wanted to use that word somewhere!) bubyee and lots of love!
