Let me count the ways I absolutely love this lipstick. The most perfect red I've ever tried and I've flirted with a few (one notable example being Russian Red, a firm favourite of many of my friends but was just 'wrong' on me).
NC15 with warm undertones and this made me positively glow. The fact that it's VIVA GLAM and all the proceeds go to a worthy cause is the …

This is my Favorite lipstick ever. This colour is so flattering on my medium olive skin and makes me look and feel pretty even without any other makeup on. I also love that 100% of the sale price goes to the Mac aids fund. It can be a bit drying so lips need to be smooth and well moisturized but that’s due to the matte finish that lasts a long time. I will keep buying this as long as they make it.

BEST RED EVER. I’m into variety, with my lipsticks, jewelry, and fragrances. However, if I had to pick one lipstick for that hypothetical “desert island,” it would be VG1 with no hesitation! It’s a true “old Hollywood” matte red; there’s NO doubt that wearing it projects that vibe (which I love about VG1).

At the same time, the touch of muted brown and the fact that the red tones are …

This shade is amazing and it really suits my skin tone. It's not that long lasting and it fades after some time while it dries my lips! I put lip balm beneath but it still dry my lips. It bleeds on me. I don't know about the hype on MAC lipsticks. A lot of drugstore lipsticks are much better than them in terms on price, formula and longevity. I think MAC is over hyped, the lipsticks are …Read more

First a rant: This was 1 of my first MAC lippies (along w plastique, "O," & Lust lipglass. I don't have the originals I've replaced them a few times coz that was when I was 18 first going to a free standing MAC store in Kansas City. That was back when MAC sold the image of not testing on animals we test of humans I distinctly remember & MAC was all races all genders …Read more

If you're just starting to experience with red colored lipstick THIS IS THE ONE!! This was the first MAC lipstick I purchased, and I love it. It has great color pay off, and it applies so smooth. It doesn't have the heavy feel some lipsticks do. I love pairing it with MAC "Brick", and it is the perfect shade. It does seem to smear a tad bit, but setting with a powder stops it …Read more

I'm in the minority here but this lipstick did not work for me. EXTREMELY drying (it sucked ALL the moisture that existed in my lips), feathered and bled and after an hour it looked like I had drunk fruit punch leaving this unnatural stain on my lips enhancing all my lines. Worst part, the stain was extremely uneven so it looked like a 3 year old had applied this lipstick on me …Read more

This is a mid toned, neutral red on my NC42 complexion. It doesn't lean too cool or two warm, which makes it a great red to match different eye makeup and so on. It's a matte formulation and kind of retro looking and lasts better than a glossy shade might, which is great.
I think this could be worn by people with many different complexions / colouring, simply because it's a …

An everyday wearable red. A red with a muted brown undertone to it. So gorgeous and perfect to just throw on and head out the door. Matte finish but not drying, it is still creamy and hydrating on the lips. If you want to start wearing reds this is a perfect entry into the world of the Crimson Lip. Welcome!

How do you describe perfection ?
I am a lipstick junkie and have tried Russian red ( looks orange on me ) , ruby woo ( too blue , boo hoo ) and everything Chanel and Nara ever made. This lipsticks wins. The color makes a statement without being full on bright , has just enough brick in it to warm the skin and stays put. I mean , what more do you want in a lipstick. If a guy were adorable …
