So Chaud is the perfect spring/summer lip colour. Its definitely not for the colour shy - it makes your lips pop! Gorgeous matte orangey red which leans more to the orange side than the red. The matte finish makes it sophisticated and the brightness keeps it a little playful. MAC's Chicory liner works well with it. A colour like this pairs well with simple make up - flawless skin, a neutral eye with a bit of a shimmer, liner and mascara. I usually skip blush and go for a bit of bronzer with this one.
This is my all time favorite orange/red lipstick. I have medium color skin, yellow undertones, brown green eyes, dark hair, and this lipstick is flat out gorgeous! I get stopped on the street wearing it. It's neither orange nor red but a kind of tomatoey orange that works beautifully with light gold shadowed eyes and a bit of liner. It's the perfect, perfect orange and I absolutely love it.
I have a new love and it's name is So Chaud. Let me first say that I am fairly pale with slight olive undertones(my mother is native American, father is Irish and German) with green eyes and light brown hair. I have always stayed away from any lipstick as I have somewhat pigmented lips for my complexion and no matter what I put on it always has a reddish look. I was reading a beauty mag and this lipstick was mentioned. I figured I would go try it out. And wow was I won over. It is matte which I love but isn't drying at all. Today is day number 2 wearing it and it hasn't flakes or bled at all. The MAC sa paired it with the lipliner called raud(maybe?) and it's a perfect match. The color isn't overpowering for my pale skin and looks georg! I would imagine it looking fab on darker complexions as well. I would def purchase again
I feel like this lipstick needs a tagline with it, "Be a hot girl without looking like a hot mess" or maybe something catchier im not in advertising lol but this lipstick NEEDS to be in every olive/tanned girls makeup bag its that good. Its a bold in your face wearable orange that attracts guys and girls like magnets even the occasional geezer or two.
I was looking for an orange lipstick from mac. Morange and Neon Orange looked WAY to bright and Lady Danger was to red. I was on Makeupgeek when I saw an article "How to Rock Orange Lips' So Chaud was on the list of lipsticks. I saw it and fell in love. Against my better judgment I bought it. While I was waiting for the package to arrive I was having second thoughts. Well, it finally came today and I am thrilled. I lasts forever and it's not to in your face. Don't get me wrong it's a really bright color just more wearable than I was anticipating. I will definitely repurchase.
If you're lookin for a red-orange type lipstick that will last all day or night this is what you're looking for. Ill put it on at 12:45 PM and it'll still be on at 8:30 PM without reapplying even after eating. The color is perfect for spring or summer. I get compliments everytime I wear it. I just can't get enough. Ill be buying this lipstick till the day I die!!
I LOVE this lipstick. I have fair, warm-toned skin, and this was the absolute perfect orangy red color for me. I actually went to the MAC counter looking for Lady Danger after doing some online research, but they only carried it in the actual MAC stores, and because I was feeling lazy that day, I decided to go with So Chaud, which was recommended by the MUA helping me.
I got home, and fell in love. Paired with Redd liner by MAC, it's absolutely perfect. Like Russian Red, this is a matte color, but I don't find it to be too drying at all, like Ruby Woo can be. I just use a Nivea chapstick (blotted) underneath and it goes it really smoothly and lasts a while (but of course, with any bright color, touch ups are needed through the evening).
I think this is a unique enough color and formula to justify the price tag. I just absolutely love it.
I am NC45 and I love the way it brings the glow out of my skin and it goes great with Chickory (sp?) lipliner.
For me, with my brown hair/eyes and NC15 skintone, this l/s was incredibly garish. Admittedly, it is a nice colour, but when I put it on...urgh! More orange than red, I think it would work better on slightly darker skintones than mine. The formula is nice, so thats a bonus. But for me, this was unworkable.
If you like the look of Lady Danger but it doesn't quite work for you then try this! I use Jungle Red by NARS but wanted something less "snow white" for a change. I tried Lady Danger for a while but it just didn't suit my pale skin and made me look too flushed. This is more bright orange red than Lady Danger's coral pink and works brilliantly. If you blot it then it becomes a more subdued orange which looks great in summer. I would definatey recommend!
