If you’ve ever tried on Ruby Woo while perusing reds at a MAC counter, then you more than likely have been offered up her sister Lady Danger for testing as well. Lots of women (including ourselves) are die hards for ole Ruby but there is something about Lady Danger that most can’t deny makes her a great sister lipstick–just opposite and similar enough–one is a little more classic, sexy and retro and the other, a little more vibrant, kittenish and eclectic. A vivid bright coral red that wears like the sun on your lips, it’s hard not to wear this color on repeat.
In many ways, Lady Danger sort of surpasses lot of other orange and red lipsticks during the brighter seasons. It’s right in the middle of the two–a perfect mix of both colors–and does not lean to far right or left. Because of that, this lipstick works well for almost any skin tone and any look you’re going for. Lady Danger on dark skin looks amazing but just as beautiful on pale skin and almost every tone in-between. It’s sleek enough to come off as classic and pairs well with heels, cigarette pants and a glass of syrah to ripped boyfriends, tanks and honey apple cider. Retro and vintage look lovers are going to love how this pairs with coral and tomato hued outfits.
If you don’t already own Lady Danger, and have never take up the offer to try it on, the next time you’re at the counter, do yourself a favor and try it on for size. You may just be surprised at what you’ve been missing out on. And if you’re trying to save so money, a close Lady Danger dupe is Wet ‘N Wild ‘Purty Persimmon’ 970 or NYX ‘Morocco’ Soft Matte Lip Cream.
