MAC Lady Danger & Candy Yum Yum

When MAC makes a limited edition product a permanent one in the counter, expect me to be there before the mall opens! haha And I did for Candy Yum Yum, and well, when  first heard about Lady Danger. I have reviewed 3 famous matte lipsticks by MAC already but I have to add more by reviewing these two!

MAC Matte Lipstick in Candy Yum Yum and Lady Danger
SRP: PHP 1000
Availability: MAC Trinoma, Eastwood, MOA

(+) As always coverage, consistency and color is very bright.
(+) Color pay-off as always is above average; pigment is really intense!

 (+) Texture is true to its claim, matte, but I actually found a same color by Nars but with a MORE matte velvet texture. I realized this a day right after buying this lipstick!Will create a detailed review of this Nars but what I like about MAC is the ease of application because of its less matte texture.

 (+) On lips, full coverage, covering dry lips!

(+) Both colors are nice - Lady Danger, a bright red orange (especially at day; while quite red at night) while Candy Yum Yum is a really bright pink!
(+) Probably with a change in formulation, Lady Danger and Candy Yum Yum as seen below didn't dry my lips too much compared to the reds and nudes (matte) as I reviewed before
(+) Build-able coverage too that's easier to do than the super matte reds like Russian Red

(+) Of course, staying power is above average because of the level of pigments.

Overall, I love my new matte's and I would recommend the products because of the MAC quality, and especially, the products' less drying effect than the usual MAC matte's. I would repurchase Candy Yum Yum again but I'm considering NARS Matte Velvet after Lady Danger. What do you think?
