Dangerously in Love with MAC Lady Danger

Lady Danger is a lipstick that I thought I didn't need because I have a few very similar shades. But no matter how much I told myself no, I still wanted it.

MAC Lady Danger Lipstick Dark Skin

I have a serious problem. No matter how many different lipsticks I have in this type of shade I constantly seek out more. I love me a good orangey red lippie, the brighter the better. Lady Danger is a lipstick that I thought I didn’t need because I have a few very similar shades (ok more like dupes). But no matter how much I told myself no, I still wanted it. Since I had some empties I finally snatched it up through Back to MAC. Trust me I have no regrets as I’m in love. Dangerously in love. This may be my new favorite from the brand.

Lady Danger is a vivid bright orange red with a matte texture. It tends to lean slightly more orange on me. Although it’s matte it’s not as dry as most mattes that I have in my collection. With a good lip balm underneath it glides on smooth with no pulling or tugging, and has a nice sheen. However as with all mattes it is not forgiving to dry lips so you must exfoliate and moisturize prior to application. It wears up to 5 hours without retouching but gathers in the corners of the mouth a bit.



Dupes or very, VERY similar colors that I have in my collection are Wet ‘n Wild Megalast Lipstick in Purty Persimmon and Sleek True Color Lipstick in OMG. I’ll update this post with comparison swatches later.

  1. so pretty, love it on our skin tone and i have those dupes too plus Nars red Square. I’m am over that dupe life, through.

  2. I have Lady Danger & it’s a hot color. I just got it in a Back to Mac return, too. I wanted So Chaud but they didn’t have it so I got Lady Danger & Candy Yum Yum. I’m not disappointed with Lady Danger, it’s so pretty…a nice orange with a pop.

    I heard it looks good paired with Ruby Woo.

    1. I wanted Candy Yum Yum but I have a dupe from Sleek which I don’t rock enough so figured I don’t need another. Lady Danger and Ruby Woo are so pretty on their own I would not want to mix them lol

    1. Thank you and thanks for the feedback but that’s how I’m currently liking them, bold. Everyone likes different things.

  3. Girl you are wearing that Lady Danger! You make me want to get it too. The closest dupe I have is Maybelline’s Electric Orange (#980) which is a satin finish. Sidebar: I own the LA Girl Pro Concealer in Fawn. I’m thinking about trying the Toffee color as well. The Toffee looks good on you.

  4. Whoa! Lady Danger is perfect for you! Your entire face is perfection in these pics. Love the earrings, too.

  5. PRETTY! i own lady danger but i haven’t worn it in ages, lol. isn’t that how it always goes!? but i have a question, have you heard of the anastasia brow pomade? I’m thinking about getting the shade in ebony but i would love to hear your thoughts on the product if you don’t mind. πŸ™‚
