MAC Russian Red

MAC Russian Red £14


I am quite the lipstick fiend, and find going without it on a day to day basis is just as much as going bare faced. 
My main colour of choice has always been red - orange red, dark red, blue red, purple red, ALL RED. I'm quite pale and think it suits my complexion pretty well.
I've always wanted to try MAC lipsticks (obvs!) but have always settled for drug store brands until recently when I took a trip to Selfridges and found myself at the MAC counter (dangerous).
MAC have copious amounts of red lipsticks, but in the end I opted for Russian Red.

It's a very bold colour, you only need one or two coats for it to really pop. It has a matte finish, which I love as I'm not a huge fan of shine lipsticks, although one of the downsides is it can be quite drying on the lips.
Russian Red is a blue red, which means it's much more deeper and intense, it also makes your teeth look whiter! (bonus). 
I have found extremely wearable and long lasting, it's a few hours before I have to top up and it lasts through meals and drinks without leaving me completely lipstickless. 

Next on my red lipstick list is Red Velvet velveteen by Lime Crime which looks A-MAZING. 


  1. Russian Red looks incredible on you! I'm so scared of red lipstick but I have the lipglass in russian red and it does do wonders with your teeth :)
