MAC describes this as an "intense bluish-red". I agree with the other reviews that state that it pulls orange on them. A better option for my olive skin tone is Viva Glam 1. I will not purchase.

I've tried millions of red lipsticks and this one is my favourite. The colour is classic but sophisticated at the same time, it suits everyone. The formula is great. It's matte but definitely not...

Well, I have to say that I love the color but I don't like how it performs. It doesn't last very long when you eat. But maybe that isn't really the purpose of it, or maybe I am just doing something...

Oh, Russian Red, where do we begin? Russian Red is a cult classic among MAC's endless array of lipsticks and it's not hard to imagine why. I would describe the color of Russian Red as being a...

My first MAC lipstick. I noticed that I don't have a good red lipstick at home. Once picked up a red lipstick by Maybelline but I didn't like it that much. Went to MAC, swatched this on the back of...
