red lips, day two: mac's lady danger

I've had a bad day today.  Bad weather, fighting, etc.  But I did do a red lip again today, as promised, and I wanted to share it with you all. :)

Pardon my hair - the rain is not its friend!

Only thing I did differently with the face and eyes from yesterday is that I used MAC's Satin Taupe eyeshadow - but you can't really see it anyways!

I tried Lady Danger on its own last night and thought it was a bit too orange on its own, so I layered it over Ruby Woo. I love it this way!

The formulation of the two of these lipsticks (both Mattes, I believe) is great.  Matte lipsticks can be drying, which is why I think it's important to apply a balm first.  However, it's the fact that they are a bit dry that makes them so long lasting - both today and yesterday I applied once and didn't have to touch up all day! Drinking through a straw and eating non-messy foods helps, too! (Hey, I said red lips can be high-maintenance!)

Yes, that's Sparky looking out the window...

I'm curious to know - what's your favorite red? Or any dark/bright lip color, for that matter!

Alright, lovelies, I'll see you soon!  Can't wait for The Vampire Diaries tomorrow - eeeeee!!
