Lady Danger by MAC

This Girl is on Fire!

For those of you interested in Lady Danger by MAC, I highly suggest that you go to a MAC counter and try it on first. The reason I suggest this is due to the fact that it is described nearly everywhere on the internet as a reddish-orange. In my case, this could not be further from the truth. On me, Lady Danger is without a doubt orange with no hints of red. 
 (Right after applied with Cherry lipliner feathered inward).

The first time I tried it on, I was horrified to see bold, nearly neon, orange lips staring back at me in the mirror. I immediately put it down, and did not think much of it since. This past week, I tried it on again from the suggestion of one of the MAC counter ladies as I told her I was looking for a bright color and I really loved Ruby Woo. After swiping it on my lips, I was again repulsed by the color staring back at me. She suggested putting Cherry lipliner under it would really help to tone it down. From there, she began to apply the Cherry lipliner over the Lady Danger. 

(Attempting to redo on my own).

I would again look in the mirror, however, this time I was looking at a beautifully feathered ombre effect from the two colors. The ombre effect of Cherry on the outer corners feathered inward toward Lady Danger created almost a fiery effect that would have probably been gorgeous on Katness in one of her fire dresses.
