I really believe that every girl should at one point in their life own the perfect red lipstick. If you've been following my blog for a while, you'll know that I'm constantly purchasing red lipsticks but also never putting them to good use. I'm kind of a weirdo when it comes to reds because I think they're beautiful and luxurious but I simply don't have the balls to wear them. I convince myself that if I continue to purchase amazing lipsticks, one day I'll be able to rock the look on the go, not just at home. My newest addition to my red lipstick family is the gorgeous Mac Lipstick in Russian Red.
Russian Red is a universal shade that is part of the matte collection at Mac. It is a more blue toned red with insanely good pigmentation. This lipstick wears beautifully and only needs one application to really add the perfect luxurious red to any makeup look. It feels expensive and is definitely a high quality lip colour. It has a thick creamy coverage and is long lasting. The only con is that this is not the kind of lipstick to pucker up with, it stains and your date will not be able to wipe this colour clean. I also find this matte lipstick to not be as drying as most others I've tried. It has the kind of formula that doesn't exaggerate your lips creases and that's something I'm always looking for in a matte shade.
I would have to say that Russian Red is really making its way up my list to being one of my favourite red lipsticks. I still haven't tried its sister shade Ruby Woo but this baby is definitely a force to be reckoned with.
Have you tried Russian Red?
