MAC Lipstick in Lady Danger Review and Swatch

Hello lovelies,

today I have prepared the swatch of one of the best discoveries in the last year – MAC Lady Danger lipstick. I have to admit that I didn’t really like MAC cosmetics, but curiosity got the better of me. Lady Danger was the logical choice, since it was the shade I first noticed in the store.

Lady Danger is a bright, orange based matte red (like a more pigmented version of Guerlain Rouge Automatique in Nahema). Since the shade really sticks out, it is not the lipstick for those who want to blend in the crowd, because people will notice it.

This lipstick is really pigmented – probably the most pigmented out of all the lipsticks I own and not so easy to remove so you have to be extremely careful when applying it. I haven’t noticed that it bleeds out, so I don’t wear it with a lip liner, but lip liner would certainly help the application look more neat.

The lipstick has a vanilla scent which doesn’t disappear as quickly as I’d want, but it doesn’t bother me.

However, there are some bad sides.

Bok dragi čitatelji,

za danas sam pripremila swatch jednog od najboljih otkrića prošle godine – MAC ruža u nijansi Lady Danger. Moram priznati da me MAC kozmetika dosad baš i nije zanimala, ali kad sam bila u Grazu nisam mogla odolijeti znatiželji. Ruž Lady Danger bio je logičan izbor, budući da je to bila nijansa koju sam zapazila još s vrata. Inače, MAC se još ne može nabaviti u Hrvatskoj, a u Grazu cijena je ruža 20 eura.

Nijansa Lady Danger je jarka mat crvena s narančastim podtonom (kao pigmentiranija verzija Guerlain Rouge Automatique ruža u nijansi Nahema). Budući da se ova nijansa zaista ističe, ovo nije ruž za one koji žele ostati neprimijećeni.

Ruž je zaista pigmentiran – vjerojatno najpigmentiraniji od svih ruževa koje sam imala priliku probati i ne skida se lako, tako da ga treba oprezno nanositi. Za sad nisam primijetila da se razmazuje i prelijeva preko ruba usana tako da ne koristim olovku za usne, ali smatram da bi moje nanošenje bilo urednije kada bih koristila olovku.

Ruž ima okus vanilije koji se zadržava koji sat, ali me okus ne smeta.

Since Lady Danger is a matte lipstick, it has a drier texture. Luckily, it doesn’t dry out the lips, but neither does it feel comfortable. I can remedy this with a lip balm or a transparent lip gloss, but I still prefer the consistency of, for example, Guerlain Rouge Automatiquer or YSL Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks.

Another minus is that the lipstick wears off irregularly – usually the lipstick in the centre of the lips is gone after an hour or two, but it remains on the edge of the lipline. I have small lips and it makes me look ridiculous if I don’t touch-up often.

Still, in spite of its minor flaws Lady Danger is still one of my favourite lipsticks ever.

Ruž ima i neke loše karakteristike. Budući da je ovo mat ruž, tekstura je ruža suša. Ruž doduše ne isušuje usne, ali nije ugodan na usnama. To se može popraviti ukoliko se preko ruža nanese balzam ili prozirno sjajilo, ali meni je još uvijek draža tekstura Guerlain Rouge Automatique i YSL Rouge Pur Couture ruževa.

Još je jedan minus činjenica da se ruž skida nepravilno, to jest, u sredini usana nestane u roku od sat ili dva, a ostane na rubovima usana te, ukoliko ga stalno ne popravljam, izgledam smiješno budući da imam male usne.

Sve u svemu, usprkos svim manama Lady Danger mi je i dalje jedan od najdražih ruževa ikad.
