Made another MAC purchase yesterday! I love MAC and their lipsticks, they have the widest range of shades and finishes. It is impossible not to succeed when looking for a fun new color in there.
I asked the wonderfully nice makeup artist there what color she would recommend, and she immediately grabbed a number of red shades, I liked her already! She swatched a number of lipsticks and at the very last... she swatched this baby. The brightness and the orange immediately caught my eye.
This is Lady Danger, a matte finish lipstick in a gorgeous vivid bright coral red, as MAC describes. I love love love it.
When she told me the name of this lipstick, I immediately thought of Heis from the amazing blog Mw. Ekster. She once told me that I should try out this lipstick, and I did put it on my list but I kind of forgot about it afterwards. But I'm so glad I got it now!
The color is nice and unique. I don't have anything like it in my collection. Plus I love the fact that it is a matte finish. In my opinion matte and satin finishes look the best on lips. I don't like looking like someone piled a pot of glitter on my lips.
And this is how it looks on me! I so strongly dislike taking full face pictures, but it looks best like this. The lipstick has pretty good wear, after my dinner it was still mostly there. Be sure to cary a lipbalm with you at all times, because boy, this things dries your pucker out like crazy. That's the downside of matte finishes...
