One of my favourite shades of lipstick from MAC that I always have in my makeup bag, but don't wear as often as I use to. It's the perfect intense matte red shade with blue undertones that compliments my complexion. I always pair this with lip liner (MAC's Cherry or Brick) which really helps with the longevity of wear.
Red is my HG lip color, so of course I have this. Out of my 100+ red lippie collection, this is one of my favs. It bright and matte, and dry, just like I like.
If you're ever gonna wear a red lipstick, this is the one to buy! I constantly get comments on this color whenever I wear and I feel it's such a timeless look (people have been wearing red lipstick for yearsss). It also has a crazy lasting effect. In pictures too it really helps draw attention to your lips that in pictures where you're not wearing it you will be disappointed.
I really like this blue-based red colour, although I don't often wear red lipstick, so when I do, I am quite startled by the look of this. I have NW20 skin, and this is a very full-on colour, but with my dark eyes and hair, I think it suits. I would be interested in playng around with different shades of red to see if any other ones suit me better, but at the moment, this is my fav. The coverage and staying power is great, as is the texture. Definately not one to wear with dry lips though, as it accentuates flakiness, and definately one to use with a liner. A little pricey (AUS$30), but otherwise, a nice product.
It has a matte finish and it's a very strong shade. It looks a little dark red on me. It stays and does not come off. :)
There is a reason why this color has been around for at least 15+ years. It's the perfect true bright red, neither too blue or too orange for me. Madonna made it famous by wearing it on the cover of, um, Vanity Fair (I believe) back in the early 1990s. continued >>
This is my *red* lipstick. I love the color - very dark rich red with blue undertones - I cannot do yellow or orange undertones. I use it with MAC Cherry lip pencil and it is perfect. Russian Red lip gloss over it makes it moist, if it looks too dry.
It's a gorgeous color that would probably suit most people but for me, it looked terrible. I don't like the MAC matte finish anyway, and found that it was too blue-based.
i love red lipsticks/glosses and so of course i'm naturally inclined to dig russian red. it's a very nice true red shade that is, for a red, very versatile. the only downfall is the matte finish, i find mac's matte lipsticks to be extremely drying and often end up looking chalky when applied unless you've already got lips that are in decent shape and use a top notch balm underneath.
My HG red lipstick! I love this, so creamy the perfect red shade for my NW15/20. It has great staying power, even when it fades it leaves a wonderful stain on your lips, but is easily removed with makeup remover wipes. I will never buy another red lippy again!
