I LOVE THIS LIPSTICK and I wasn't even a lipstick user until I bought this. It suits my skin tone perfectly and whitens my teeth instantly. It also lasts for ages when eating or drinking. When first applied it seems quite dry but it wasn't a problem for me, maybe use some kind of lip balm beforehand if really needed. For the £14 price tag I felt like there should be a bit more product which is one bad thing about most MAC lipsticks. Other than that I will be re-purchasing for many years to come :)
This is such a great lipstick. It's not as drying as the ever popular Ruby Woo, and the blue-toned red is flattering on my pale skin. It lasts all day without reapplication (just use a lipliner with it to be double sure) and the colour is totally head turning.
You can't beat a classic red lipstick, and this is one of the best.
This was a nice, universal blue-red that I wore to a gala one night. I found it bled a bit more than other red lipsticks I tried, and I got a couple of blackheads around my lipline from wearing it (that I haven't from other MAC lipsticks). So it went back to Macy's :(
I think MAC should change the color of this lipstick to "UNIVERSAL RED" because this is the perfect Red for any skin tone. I've put this lipstick on virtually all my friends (A range of skin tones from fair to dark) and I have yet to find a single person that hasn't loved their lips! For longer wear I would recommend using a lip liner to color in the entire lips and then put the lipstick over (MAC'S Cherry is the perfect complement). Highly recommended, especially for people who are looking for a classic red lip.
The perfect red. Described on the MAC website as an "intense blueish-red" and that is exactly what it is. For reference, I am an NW10 (winter) to NW25 in the summer. Its a fairly creamy formula in my opinion. Not too dry, and it lasts for quite a while.
this is my favorite red lippie from MAC! a must have on your red lipstick collection! :)
I cannot rave about this lipstick enough. This was the first lipstick I ever bought from MAC and I think it's gorgeous, it's the perfect shade of red and it does not budge at ALL. My biggest fear of wearing a red lip was that it would bleed halfway through the night and look horrible but this doesn't do that at all. It stays put until you scrub it off and even then it has a nice stain. It is extremely pigmented so if you accidentally end up with some on the skin around your mouth (hello shaky hands!) it's a bit of a nightmare to get off. It's a matte red shade and it can leave your lips feeling quite dry if they're not moisturised but that's to be expected with a matte shade. Overall I cannot recommend this product enough, it retails for around £14 in the UK so not the greatest price but it's such a HG for me I'll definitely be repurchasing this again and again.
This is my first mac lipstick. I tried it in a mac store. The MUA put it on and i was immediately in love with the color. Love wearing it with a neatral eyelook. I get many compliments when i wear this. First i didn't like the dry feeling this lipsticks gave me. But now i'v gotten used to it. It stays on for hours. Normally i must re aply a lets say nyx lipstick for several time a day. But not with this beauty. Two times a day is enough.
I ordered mac's clear lipgloss. I'm curious how that is gonna turn out. I will definitely buy russian red again. | also think this will not be my last mac lipstick in any color.
I love this colour. I generally use MAC red because it is slightly cooler toned and so a little better for my skin. A lot of people write that this is blue toned, but the mac website has it down as coral red and I think under the right lights you can definitely see a hint of that. Being matte it is a tiny bit drying, but the wear is AMAZING. So I bought this to use when I am out for a long day and might not be able to touch up as often - it just lasts and lasts. It goes on well, is very pigmented and definitely well worth a try if you like bold colours. Thanks MAC!!
This is a great red lipstick. I seriously think that this will fit any skin tone. It's very pigmented and very long lasting (since it has a matte finish). I would definitely recommend you get this if you are looking for a red lipstick.
