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!
