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 dry and my lips tend to be really dry. It's long-lasting, stays all day, doesn't come off during eating, even greasy foods don't ruin it. I've been using it everyday for …Read more

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 wrong. Don't know. Wouldn't recommend it if you are new to makeup...

I love the colour very much. The colour (described as bluish red) complements my skin tone and makes my teeth appear whiter - i am east asian with rather fair skin with neutral undertone. The colour stays on for a very long time - need to use makeup remover to remove all traces of it on my lips. The reason why i gave it a 4-star is its texture - it is not hydrating at all and i need to apply a …Read more

Great gorgeous red color. If you love Mac lipsticks this is a staple for most skin tones. Heard about it on Spotlighthair.com and so glad it was recommended!

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 cooler tone, medium-to-dark, rich red shade. I'll be totally honest- I didn't think I would like this color. MAC's Ruby Woo is my ultimate go-to and by comparison, since …

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 my hand and since then I'm in love with MAC lipsticks. Purchased this, applied this at home. And I couldn't let go of this lipstick til today. Purchased a backup. Formula is …

Pros:
Pigmented, great color
Universally flattering red
Great consistency

Cons:
Not many. I suppose it gets on my teeth if I'm not careful, doesn't last as long as a liquid lipstick

Overall:
5* - what a classic red that wears very well

I own quite a few different red lipsticks, drugstore and high end. I wear matte red lipstick almost everyday, red is my "nuetral" and MAC Russian Red is the one I feel is most flattering, easiest to wear and on top of that, I get complimented on it the most.
I am pale with red hair and blue eyes, but I think this color and formulation would work on almost anyone! I usually apply a …

Such a popular color. This was a gift item and too orange-red for my complexion where blue reds work better. Not for me.

LOVE IT! Perfect red -- just the right amount of brightness, not too orange, or coral, a true red. The finish is matte, but it's not drying. Easy to apply, doesn't feather, wears long. It has just a tad of a cool undertone, that makes your teeth look whiter without the colour leaning towards ruby.. I truly believe it will work with any skin tone. A++
