Summer Bold Lip Approved: MAC Lipstick Swatches

Summer is here and it is no secret my go to makeup look is bronzed skin with a neutral bronze eye and a bold MAC Lipstick of course! MAC Lipsticks are my go to and I just can not quit them. This look is so effortless and easy yet looks extremely polished for a night out. If you want to glam it up more you can add false lashes and layer on highlighter! MAC Lady Danger is my all time favorite shade of red lipstick but as of late I have branched out for different seasons as orange toned is usually not a winter color but I still wear it LOL!  Get ready to see 4 gorgeous MAC Lipstick swatches that will surely be summer bold lip approved. If you are newer to bold lips, these 4 colors in my opinion are tame. Not too orange and not too red.

As you can see they are all pretty similar but different. When it comes to finding the perfect red lip you have to try them on and see what works with your skin tone. I prefer a more orange/coral Red and that is why Lady Danger has stolen my heart.  Whenever I am getting ready and fall in the love with the look I created I will take a picture. I was headed to a MAC event and just loved how my lips popped but the rest of my face was softer. I hope in the future to start showcasing more looks on my blog so stay tuned!!!!

What is your go to bold lip for summer? I would love to know!

MAC RED LIPSTICK: Three Must Haves

My love for Red Lipstick is pretty recent considering my beauty obsessed life started years and years ago. I would say probably in the last year, so recent right???? I always felt I was one of those people who could not pull off the color. But once I discovered Lady Danger everything changed. I started wearing it for fancy nights out with an all over bronzed makeup look and just fell in love! For me when I hear MAC Red Lipstick, I just think Lady Danger but ooooh boy there are SO MANY  MAC Red Lipstick options.

Allure Magazine has been my beauty bible for almost 20 years.  It has shaped my beauty routine, filled my makeup storage with allure best of beauty products, and a magazine subscription I look forward to monthly. So when I read their article on The Best Red Lipsticks of All Time, my obsession for Red Lipstick grew stronger. They declared Russian Red, Ruby Woo & Lady Danger as “The MAC Holy Trinity”  and this is the reason I just had to have all three in my collection! You will see they are three very different red tones and absolute perfection.

Swatches Top To Bottom:

Russian Red: (Matte – Intense Blueish Red) Per Allure: “is a vampy crimson with neutral-to-cool undertones. Even its origin story is amazing: The then-up-and-coming cosmetics company created it for Madonna’s 1990 “Blond Ambition” tour, and it’s been a cult classic (and go-to winter red) ever since” 

This most certainly is a deeper truer red on my lips and I am excited to have this for the winter months.

Ruby Woo: (Retro Matte – Very matte vivid blue-red) Per Allure: “…a bright cherry color with a cooling hint of blue that’s seen more red carpets than Ryan Seacrest. Proof it looks amazing on every skin tone? A diverse celebrity fan club including Lauren Conrad, Sia, Christina Hendricks, and Rita Ora. Rihanna was so obsessed, she made her own limited-edition version called Riri Woo in 2013. It sold out in three hours”

When they say very matte it indeed is very matte. I find it best to exfoliate first (I’m obsessing over the new MAC Lip Scrubs) and I use my MAC PrepNPrime and it lasts forever and does not get chunky or dry.

Lady Danger: (Matte – Vivid bright coral-red) Per Allure: “…a cherry-red spiked with neon orange that looks particularly juicy against darker skin. No worries if you’re pale, though—the most eye-catching shade in the red-lip triumvirate pops like crazy on every skin tone”

I could not agree more with this description. The orange that pops from this lipstick is STUNNING and it indeed looks fabulous on all skin tones. I prefer this one for the summer with a tan and bronzed makeup look but I have rocked it in the dead of winter! Its just my absolute go to Red Lipstick!
