MAC Dangerous Lipstick



MAC Retro Matte lipstick in Dangerous: £15

I was actually on the lookout for MAC's Neon Orange lipstick one day but it was nowhere to be found, so after a little swatching session I opted for Dangerous, which is one of the Retro Matte range released a few months ago. I really loved the formula of Relentlessly Red, so naturally I needed to try out another! You know me - never enough lipsticks..

Dangerous is described as an 'orangey red matte' and is creamy and easy to apply whilst also giving excellent colour payoff in a couple of swipes. It's not drying like a typical matte lipstick, but for the winter months a good scrub along with a teensy bit of balm applied beforehand will do wonders. The formula means it does last longer than a sheerer finish, but keeping it to hand is a good idea for touch ups after eating/drinking. Wear time for me? A good five to six hours, and after than it stains the lips slightly. It's bold, bright and oh so beautiful - if you're going to wear a red lip any time of the year, it's going to be right now. Usually more classic, true reds are picked but for a nice twist during the festive season, opt for orange.

Have you tried any of the (permanent) Retro Matte shades? What do you think of Dangerous?

  5. What a gorgeous shade - I love the sound of the Retro Matte collection, but I've never tried one, only Ruby Woo which is just Matte.

  16. I'm a MAC lippy addict so I'm always eager to try another, I usually prefer their creamy textured lipsticks but the matte look so fabulous on!

  21. I've recently started getting into more matte formulas thanks to my Lush mint juleps lip scrub and Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream, looks like I'll be picking this up next time I'm in Mac!
