MAC Cosmetics Russian Red Lipstick is the perfect matte red for me. It’s bright, makes my lips seems a little bigger and bolder. I think it’s my new favourite lipstick. I just need to make sure it matches with my outfit so I can wear it out as much as possible. I love the matte look at the moment. I don’t like looking over shiny and glossy.
It stays all the way through dinner and drinks and only came off a little once when I had dessert. And even then it wasn’t smeared on my face, the inside just kind of faded a bit. Other than that it stuck like nothing else. I do fully cover my lips in lip pencil though, not just the outside line. So no need to frantically top it up all night.
This is a great lipstick for a night out, or a day when you just want to get a little dolled up. Red goes with so many outfits and makeup looks. My favourite is wearing it with a slightly smudgy smoky eye and a light blush. Thing is, this red is great on someone super pale like me, but it also looks great on my friends that are tanned and golden too.
Next time you’re near a MAC store, ask them to try it on you.
