I'm giving 4 lippies b/c Russian Red would look amazing on others, but it just didn't flatter my skintone. I'm a really warm-toned NC40 and really wanted to love this. Everytime I wore this I felt as thought my lips clashed with the rest of my face, so I tried Viva Glam I and Chili, which both suited my face much better. It is a REALLY nice lipstick nonetheless, really pigmented and really matte.

I have been searching for the perfect red lipstick to suit my pale as milk complexion, and I have tried so many lipsticks it isn't even funny. Too orange, too blue, too pale, too dark - it's been a red lipstick nightmare.So with yet another sigh I headed into a MAC store and asked one of the ladies if they could help me find the perfect red lipstick, and she helpfully pointed out the Russian Red matte - I tried it on in store and I fell in love, for the first time in my lipstick history! It is wonderfully pigmented and you don't need a lot. I use a lip brush for better results and if I want a shiny finish I dab MAC's Wonder Woman lipglass on top - perfect!I will repurchase this great lipstick :D

INCREDIBLE! That's all I can say after using this marvelous lipstick in the prettiest matte red I've ever seen. I got it for free this morning thank to MAC's Back 2 MAC programme where you can bring them back 6 MAC packages and they reward you with one of their regular lipsticks, that's why I chose Russian Red. (I now most of you girls know that, but I hope help those who doesn't :D ) I used it this evening and I got such big compliments that I decided to review it in order to encourage those doubtfuls to get it. It's creamy and soft, and you don't feel it cakey or thick 'cause it's very pigmented too and you don't need many coats to get the exact colour.You can get it now from Wonder Woman's edition or the regular one which is much cheaper, and if you are to use Back2Mac, let's pick it up!!!

Russian Red is that go-to colour that every woman should have in her make up bag. It goes on smooth and stays on for hours without needing any touch ups. I was hellbent on trying it and I can't think of another red I would have rather bought. I am constantly getting compliments on it and there's no better feeling than that.

This is the perfect vibrant red for me. I wear it with MAC lipliner in Cherry and it gives me a classic red lip. I like that it's matte because, to me, it feels like it stay on better. This is definitely not for someone who wants a little red, this is A LOT red.

If compliments were currency, this lipstick would've paid for itself in a matter of days. The PERFECT red for me :)

This is the perfect red for me, and I can see how it would work on many skin tones. Russian red is the quintessential pinup girl red. It wears beautifully, stays on better than most lippies, and is very opaque-- no worries about my lip pigmentation showing through. Get this lipstick!

This is the quintessential red lipstick for me, it is a strong and pure colour, just the way i like it. The texture is somewhere in between matte and satin. I fill in my lips with some MAC lip pencil and put this on top, definitely at the better end of the spectrum when it comes to staying powder.
