I too will agree with the below reviewer that it does look uneventful in the tube and had I not read the reviews I don't think I would have given it a second look. I really wanted a wearable red to wear to work and to have as a go to red without the shade screaming fire! or resembling Ronald McDonald - you get the drift. This really is a great shade! Firstly, very flattering on my skin tone (pale with warm yellow undertones) secondly, you can build it for a more intense red -which will still however look "sedated" or just apply a bit and go for a tinted/stain look. I usually apply it somewhere in between and it brightens up my look without having to wear too much makeup, just the basics. The texture is divine too-moisturising and smooth. So I'm a happy camper with this one. However I'm still on the hunt for a more daring but not naughty red I could wear on outings with a sun kissed/bronzey look, but that's another story. :)

HG red lipstick! I asked the SA for a red lipstick that would also look natural and she suggested Lady Bug. It looked a bit uneventful in the tube but when worn it is the most perfect, easy red you can wear. It can go from just a hint of red tint to more dramatic depending on application and you do not have to think twice before wearing it because despite being a pure red, it isn't overpowering. It has good staying power and leaves your lips tinted red.
I have also tried other reds like Chilli and Lady Danger but despite wanting to wear them I felt too self conscious with them on. Not the case with this one as I can just apply it and do not have to think twice.
Love it!!!

This is my favorite red lipstick - it's the perfect bright cheery cherry red without being TOO bright and loud - it's easily wearable - even in the daytime, or at the office. it's the perfect shade for me because it isn't too warm-orange based, and also not too dark/garent -just a pretty cherry red. I LOVE that it is glossy. matte red lipsticks don't look good on me, so I do not like MAC Ruby Woo. Russian Red is more matte also. this is pretty and glossy, makes your lips look kissable and like a 1950s pin up girl :). I love the texture of the lipsticks - MAC lustres and cremesheens are my favorite lipstick formula! I would definitely buy this again :)

What a great lipstick!
This is my go to red. It's not so in-your-face, but it's still noticeable. It's one of those colours that you can dress up or down! Overall the quality is great- very creamy and not completely matte (isn't drying). The colour is just wonderful and looks great on most of my friends! This is the first MAC lipstick I've ever finished so that's saying something right there :)

I bought this at the suggestion of the sales girl. however once wearhing it out, I found it didnt really suit me. It looks too organge red for me. Therefore I am going to have to look else where. I was a bit disappointed since the sales girl said it was perfect for me.

A wearable red lipstick for warm skin tones. The lustre finish imparts a nice sheen that's not too drying. It's a lot less severe than opaque, matte reds. For that reason, it doesn't really require a lip liner and all the work that is necessary when wearing a "serious" red lipstick. Throw it on and let it fade to a stain after a few hours. A good "let your hair down" kind of red.

I really enjoy this product; the consistency, application, and colour are beautiful. To me, its the perfect basic red. I would like it to have a little more staying power, but that may be because of the lipliner I use with it, since I haven't found one I like. Overall, its a beautiful colour, and definitely the lipstick you want to go for if you're looking for a classic red.

I could not be happier with Lady Bug. I am not usually a bright- or noticeable-lipcolour wearer but I decided that every girl needs a red in her collection. The reds that I usually see are matte, pigmented, deep, and blue toned. They look beautiful on other ladies but they make me look like a little girl playing with her mom's lipstick. When I went to MAC last weekend I looked at the Lustre lipsticks (as usual.) This colour is an almost pure, straight red leaning on the warm side. It is shiny and the perfect pigmentation for me. Reminds me of a tomato colour! This is more of a fun and juicy red colour than a sophisticated, elegant matte red for me. That's why I love it!

Ladybug was the first red lipstick I ever tried. At the time I wanted something sheer. If that is what your looking for, than this lipstick is perfect for you. But don't get me wrong, you can build the color and make it more vibrant. This is great for someone who doesn't want a bright red lipstick, but something that is easier to wear and apply.

I got this free with the back to mac program and i decided to get ot because i dont have any red lipstick. I really love it its so bright and vibrant and doesnt dry out my lips. You dont need any gloss with it because it has its own shine. I really love this ;)
