This is a bright red!! I have a lighter skin tone and it doesn’t suit me at all! The colour makes me look like a clown especially because it’s a shiny finish. I think maybe someone who is a paler colour or even a deeper colour than me would suit this shade more. Perhaps it’s because I don’t wear red lipstick at all but it really doesn’t suit my skin tone. Overall the amount of product you get is …Read more

I bought it blind, based on reviews and online photos and - surprise! - it's even better than I expected.

It's such a complex colour and digital photography does not do it justice. M.A.C. Red is the softest among the brights, if that makes sense. In the tube, it looks like a true red, but on my lips it's more like a mix of burgundy and pink - it has depth and a strong …

I love love this lipstick! Its very pigmented and isn't drying like Ruby Woo. It lasts for about 3 to 4 hours and its a perfect true red. If you like creamier red lipsticks then I would recommend this one!

This is the first MAC red lipstick that I'm trying (as in the shade, not the name) and I really like it. It seems to me to be more subdued than other reds (namely Dior) and I don't feel awkward wearing it during the day or even to work. I use it with lip pencil in Cherry and it even lasts a long time. I can see that it may not be as universally flattering as Ruby Woo, but a pretty …Read more

MAC Red is one of my favourite red lipsticks. It is true red which looks great on both warm and cool skintones. It is has a shiny finish and is comfortable to wear, thanks to the matte finish. However, it is not hydrating. I won't dry out your lips, but if you already have dry lips I would definitely recommend wearing a lipbalm underneath. It will last through drinking but will need to be …Read more

The Satin formula makes it lasts long on the lips (though not transfer-proof) and very comfortable to wear. It's a bold red but not a bright red like Lady Danger. It's also not a deep red either but it sure will make a statement. It's not as matte as I'd like however so I won't be repurchasing.

My first red lipstick was Ruby Woo. Highly regretted because it was so so drying. This was the next purchase, and I am very pleased. It looks like a true red on me, the formula is smooth and easy to apply. I need to reapply after food etc because it transfers for me.

I also love this because I have a bunch of lipsticks I can't wear (goth/dark berry, light corals/pinks). What I do …

This has to be one of the most underrated red lipsticks that MAC has.
I usually only hear about Ruby Woo or Russian Red.
I love the super matte transfer-proof formula that Ruby Woo has but I felt the color wasn't as red on my NC30/C35 coloring compared to other people.
With one swipe Ruby Woo is quite red but its patchy due to the retro matte formula so you end up having to …

I am in love with this lipstick. It is a gorgeous red with blue undertones. I always get compliments when wearing this. It is my all time favorite! It is satiny but has great staying power, doesn't dry out your lips. I am an NC50

I've been using this colour for years! I always get compliments from this colour. Even better its a nice creamy formula that doesn't dry your lips out. You can wear it all year around
