MAC Russian Red

MAC Russian Red
A girl can never have too many Mac Cosmetic lipsticks in her life! While in Edinburgh a few weeks ago I picked up my sixth MAC lipstick in Russian Red. A stunning deep matte red that’s perfect for A/W occasions.

So for starters, this lipstick is literally photogenic. Most lipsticks look completely different from a photo to on the lips but with this true red colour, it really is a stunning vibrant red! It doesn’t have any orange tones in it, but I’d say has a blue tone to true red.

The great thing about this lipstick is its photo ready! Smile with Russian Red on and it instantly makes your teeth look whiter. I just love how rich and luxurious the colour is. And even better the fact its matte so it doesn’t budge all night.

MAC Russian RedRussian Red, although matte still has a cream finish to it which I love so much about Mac lipsticks, they don’t dry your lips like other brands tend to. Another bonus, as its more matte it doesn’t run onto your teeth either like some rich red lipsticks do! So nothing to worry about girls. Since I purchase this I’ve loved using it for nights out and literally when I get home my lips are still quite red.

Seriously though, if you want the perfect red lip this Autumn go for Russian Red! MAC Russian RedLet me know what red lip you’re wearing this fall!
