Ugh I don't understand why anyone would buy this. My mum loves it and I gave it a try but it just has no oomph! It's such a full on colour but goes on so wimpy. It's so sheer and comes off within minutes. I just don't get what anyone would like about this. People who say its such a great red that just suits anyone, why do you need a lipstick that suits everyone when MAC alone stock so many different reds. Each suiting different tones perfectly. Well Lady Bug didn't suit me and I find it so boring and a waste.

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE! Lady Bug is so in my top 3!! I was quite shocked at how pigmented it was due to it being a lustre, but it gives great coverage and amazing colour. Feels slightly creamy when it goes on and doesn't look too over the top, but it is quite a bold colour. Really recommend this, especially for anyone wanting a red lipstick without wanting to totally stand out! :-)

I love this color! I was afraid it was going to be orangey on me because of the reviews but oddly enough its red, But its a great shade of red (like the pic) & i'll deff buy more of this shade!
Edit: ok so im not so in love with it now. Its ok but theres other reds i like more than this.

I have no idea what lipstick is on the lips in the above picture but it
is not the Lady Bug that I bought. Mine is a sheer mixture of tomato
and blue making it an almost perfect red for any skin tone. I am NW25
with a little tan and it really looks lovely for the summer. If I were a bit
more pale I'm sure it would look a little clownish. I would say the above pic is not at all like Lady Bug. JMO. I won't repurchase it because ideally I like a little more blue in my red l/s...something that MAC falls short on, at least in the lustre family
Edit: I'm stuck with this but I find I don't like it. Too brown, too orange, not enough blue. I'm not sure who this would look good on. It's a bit "matronly" something my aunt wore when I was a kid and I didn't like it then either. .

Beautiful glossy slightly deep red-like a ripe tomato with no orange. Very wearable red that doesnt scream RED. I'm light to medium Asian w yellow undertones. Brightens up my face and whitens my teeth. Since it's a lustre formula, it goes on more sheer but you can build it up for more color. I think it would be great year round. I wouldn't repurchase because I don't wear red lips often and this will last me a long time.

My favourite red lipstick :-)
I wear red lipstick a lot and this is by far my favourite...fantastic colour, the right amount of gloss and lasts all night. In fact it's staying power is so good that my lips can still be stained the next morning!!
The colour is a little less blue than other red Mac lipsticks, I'm blonde and NW30, but I can imagine that this colour would suit most people.
Amazing, couldn't recommend more highly!!

Nice shade of red, not too blue-based like Ruby Woo or Russian Red. It's got an easy, applicable creamy formula. It's not too aggressive of a red either. Only downside is that it comes off easily and this is one of the first lipsticks to irritate my lips a bit. (Like a dry sensation?) But for colour payoff, absolutely beautiful.

Lovely red lipstick, it's good if you want a red that gets you noticed but isn't quite as show stopping as lady danger.
You do have to build up the colour a little but definitely one of the best red's I've tried :)

Wonderful soft classic red lipstick. I've tried many drugstore red lippies and they always either faded way too fast or didn't suit my skin tone. I have pale skin with a slight yellow undertone and this red works perfectly for me. The sheerness also keeps it from looking too harsh and makes it look more natural as it fades throughout the day.
I'm ashamed to say this as I'm a makeup junkie but this is my first MAC purchase. I will definitely be buying more from them.

This was my first true red lipstick: I bought it because I didn't want to begin wearing lipstick with a deep matte lippy in case I didn't like it! I have owned cheap pink lipsticks before, but not a nice red one :-)

The product: it's a really nice shade of red- it suits my skin perfectly. Personally I can't imagine it NOT suiting anyone as it is slightly sheer and you can build up the colour (everyone from my little sister, who's really tanned, to my palest friends liked it). It feels like a really smooth consistency and I have no problems applying it. The SA recommended it because it's a nice "beginners red" lipstick.
How I apply it: I use a lip brush (I can't say which brand in particular sorry as it's a cheapie) and swipe it on, keeping the borders neat. During the day this doesn't look too dramatic; the colour is bright but still slightly sheer. If I need to make it stand out a little more I will either use the brush and apply some more layers, or I will apply it straight from the tube. A thick coating of this does achieve a really nice dramatic red colour, without looking clownish or over the top. It does last quite a long time: my lips will stay red for hours but the intensity will fade quite rapidly- you do need to reapply quite frequently (every 1-2 hours) if you wish to maintain a bold colour.
Other things to note: I've had it for a little under a year now and there is still more than half the tube left - I've heard you should dispose of lipsticks every 6 months but there is absolutely nothing wrong with the product: it still looks fine, smells fine, and applies well. If you wore it every day, or used it heavily I could see it running out quicker.
Overall, I really love this lipstick because it is so versatile - I like wearing a really thin coat during the day, and if I wont have time to go home before a night out I carry it in my bag. I gave it a 5 because even though it doesn't last as long as other lipsticks it still wears amazingly, and since it's a little sheerer it's not meant to be long lasting anyway! When I run out I will repurchase, however I would like to try some really bold matter lipsticks in the future :-)

Also, this product is what made me fall in love with MAC!!
