MAC is always up to something. Whether it’s a new celebrity collaboration, creating new social initiatives or developing new and unique product launches, you can always count on MAC to hit the press month after month with fabulous news that get us beauty junkies all excited.
This month, MAC released 6 new fragrances to correspond with six of their cult-favorite lipsticks such as Ruby woo,Candy Yum Yum and Velvet Teddy to name few. Of course in true MAC form, they created correlated packaging for the lipsticks so they pair perfectly with the perfume, together creating #MACShadeScents.
The scents were created to reflect each of the lipstick shades personalities, from a clean musky nude, to powerful and dramatic red.
MAC kindly sent me the Lady Danger set to discuss with you guys today, but please take the term ‘set’ lightly, as the fragrances and lipsticks are sold separately.
My thoughts on the Lady Danger ShadeScents…
I am certainly no fragrance connoisseur, (don’t let the 50 bottles on my vanity fool you)! Basically, if it smells good, I like it and that’s about as deep as it gets for me. So do I like the lady Danger Scent?…eh, it’s not a scent that I would typically purchase, but I don’t hate it, but I also don’t love it.
My best description in complete laymen’s terms would be that it’s warm and spicy. I do however completely agree that they captured the essence of the lipstick; sexy, dramatic and powerful. This perfume makes a strong statement and that’s exactly what they were going for.
The lady danger lipstick is gorgeous. A matte orange-red that is super pigmented, long lasting and universally flattering.
Below I’ve listed all of the ShadeScents and their descriptions. Check them out and let me know which ones you feel would suit your personality best!
