What does a red lipstick say to you? Or shall I rephrase, what do red lips say to you? To me, red lips represent strong, daring sophisticated woman who knows what she wants and is not afraid to get it. I adore bold red lips and it’s my go to make up item every weekend! Up until now, it’s always been Ruby Woo that I went for when I wanted to empower my look. Well, maybe now I have a new favourite shade of red – MAC Lady Danger!

Texture & Colour:

Lady Danger is very often described as a vivid, bright coral red with a matte finish. For those who are brave enough to wear this shade of red I would advise to read my post on how to wear orange lipsticks. Lady danger does have an orange/yellow undertone and shades such as this one can make your teeth look more yellow. Something to bear in mind while shopping for your perfect red lipstick.

The texture of Lady Danger is very rich and intense, this is how I like my reds. Same as with Ruby Woo, the longevity is ever lasting. Well, don’t take me literally but I can assure you can get good 4 hours before it starts to fade.


You might think that since Lady Danger is a mate lipstick, the application would not be as straight forward as it would be with a sheer lipsticks. But hey hey, as the texture is smooth, it perfectly glides on the lips! No need to apply moisturiser, I find it very hydrating. One thing to be aware though, make sure you apply lip liner, this lipstick does tend to bleed! But if you dare to ware this bright read, I can assure you the look you end up with is VAVAVOOM!

Lady Danger is definitely the right shade of red lipstick that will get you the attention. Someone once said you need the confidence to wear a red lipstick but I dare to disagree. It’s the red lips that lends you the confidence. While I still prefer a Mac Ruby Woo as my favourite red lipstick, Lady Danger is definitely making the list of my all time favourite red lipsticks.

So what do you think, ladies? Are you brave enough to rock red lips by MAC Lady Danger? What’s your top notch red lipstick?


Yours truly,

      Hey Steph, I would recomend to start with Ruby Woo as that's perfect red, but Lady Danger is great for this sunny weather! Xx

    I have been thinking of picking this up! I have no idea if I can work an orange red though – I love a blue red!

      It's definitely worth a try, Rachael! I also prefer blue reds but this one is somethig special…not sure why I've become so obsessed but it might be because it's such a bright and rich shade of red Xx
