MAC Lipstick – Lady Danger

Range: Lipstick (Matte)
Shade: Lady Danger
Swatched by yours truly: akisa
  • ‘Lady Danger’ is a SUPER BRIGHT orange-red that instantly caught my eyes out of all the red lippies at the MAC counter. 
  • To get around the dry texture of MAC’s matte lipsticks, one option is to prep your lip brush with a small amount of MAC lip conditioner before blending the lip colour.
  • Orange-reds accentuate yellow teeth, so make sure you’re using whitening dental care.
  • Verdict: The kind of shade guaranteed to make everyone dying to ask you what it is! 
The matte texture isn’t kind to lip lines, as you can see from the directly-applied swatch below.
 It looks SUPER BRIGHT orange-red in real life compared to this shot.
Two sweeps for the skin swatch & voila!  
Super duper pigmented = don’t recommend applying this in a moving vehicle.

I used MAC lip pencil in ‘Redd’ for the lip swatch.
It’s creamy once warmed up & boy does this stay on really well.

This product was given to me for consideration.

Brand: MAC

Shade: Viva Glam Cyndi (Limited Edition)
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Viva Glam Cyndi Lipglass is a creamy coral shade that’s pigmented enough to be worn alone or complement the Viva Glam Gaga Lipstick.
  • As with all Viva Glam lip colour, 100% of the purchase price goes to help those living with HIV/AIDS.
  • As with MAC lipglasses, they have excellent grip & lasting power but it comes part and parcel with a sticky texture, which I actually don’t mind.
  • Verdict: A must have shade if you love coral lips & are willing to put up with a bit of stickiness for lasting power. See the lip swatch for yourself!

Can you believe I used only the wand for this swatch? This lip gloss & wand is UH-MAZING stuff.

TOM FORD Private Blend Lip Color – True Coral


LIPSTICK, TOM FORD, Yishan | by — August 19, 2010

Brand: Tom Ford
Range: Private Blend Lip Color
Shade: True Coral
Swatched by yours truly: akisa (also swatched by Jamilla here)
Buy it here

  • Texture: Creamy, hydrating with a silky finish (a lip brush is essential to blend the creaminess)
  • Luxe factors: Packaging is heavier than other lipsticks so it closes like a “Mercedes door”. Plus it’s THE BEST scent I’ve tried to date (smells & tastes like cake).
  • Must have or lust have? A must have for junkies who like to collect a unique shade from each collection. If you have to walk away with one Tom Ford lipstick, let it be True Coral. It’s a soft red coral that oozes confidence that will attract envious stares.

The luxuriously creamy texture is made from rare and exotic ingredients:
soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter, chamomilla flower oil.

The shape is more angular than I would have liked,
but it’s elegant and I’m secretly hoping Tom Ford will release black & gold packaging.

Since Tom Ford lipsticks have received so much attention

I decided to wear the lipstick on its own, without any lip balm or primer.
As you can see it’s hydrating but the creamy texture means you need a lip brush.

A lip pencil is not essential if you apply concealer around lips
and use a lip brush for precise application.
I didn’t use concealer in this shot to keep things real on BeautySwatch.

RRP: $65 AUD
Available at David Jones city stores only.
