My first ever red lipstick!!Or my first ever lipstick from MAC!!I always wanted to try red but was afraid to take the plunge but thanks to mom and the MAC make-up artist I finally went ahead and bought this lipstick.And am I glad!!I always get compliments whenever I wear it..
Now coming to the MAC Lady Bug is red but not in your face,a more natural color.It is perfect for olive Indian skin tones(I am NC 43.5) or any other skin tone if you ask me.It is more of an everyday red.You can get different levels of red with this.For me one swipe does the work!!But you can build up the red according to the time of the day or your taste and boldness!!
It has a semi sheer finish.It is glossy, lustrous and moisturising.It has no excess shine or sparkle.It is more to a classic side.
It cost me around 22$ for a 3 gms tube.I am not a fan of their packaging.It is a simple black plastic tube/case which gets dirty when I keep it with my other cosmetics.Packaging is one area they can certainly improve on.
The only downside is that it does not stay long and I have to re-apply it every now and then.But even after it wears off, it leaves an even lip stain which looks very natural just like a lip balm.Also it bleeds but I guess all red colors do;maybe a lip liner can help!!
I will definitely repurchase it.It is a perfect beginner’s red!!But if I feel adventurous I may try a new bolder lip color in RED!!
