MAC Lady Bug



































For a bargain blogger like myself, it almost feels like MAC products are something to treasure and worship. A brand loved by millions, and sometimes not so loved. Their prices are a little higher than the high street products you see every day, which is why owning little gems like this are special to me. Is this weird? Any bargain bloggers feel me right now? I almost never buy anything other than what is inside of Superdrug and Boots, so it's always nice to treat yourself every now and then, right?
I was looking for a red shade this time round, i normally stick to Matte formulas but i felt like a Matte Red would be a crazy step for me, it being such a bold statement lip. So i picked out Lady Bug, a Lustre finish MAC Lipstick. Which means it's quite the gentle look if you know what i mean, not so much the IN YOUR FACE Matte finish can give you. I just needed a subtle red to add to my growing collection and Lady Bug is absolutely wonderful. It's a beautiful calm red that gives your lips shine and glow. The perfect colour ready for summer for sure. It glides on perfect, it's not the most opaque colour but with this lipstick it's not what you need, for the fuller look there's plenty of other MAC red shades that give a bolder colour. On a typical night out (where i use it most) it lasts a couple hours, but for daily use it'd probably last longer. 

Have you tried this shade yet?

  2. I'd never seen this shade before but it looks lovely! Sometimes i'm wary about wearing reds as I feel they can be a bit too strong, but this is a gorgeous shade.

  3. Ok this shade is total under rated as it is gorgeous, such a lovely red for summer time and I love the lustre finishes! I find I cherish my mac lipsticks so much now that I don't really use them day to day which is silly as they need to be used! x

  5. That's a gorgeous shade! There's no where that sells Mac for miles here, so I haven't a clue when it comes to their stuff, apart from what I see online. I never realised they had formulas like this, they look a lot more wearable than matte lipsticks!

  11. Lady Bug is my ONLY MAC lipstick. I don't particularly find it superior to lipsticks from the high street but it feels like a diamond in my collection.
