Russian Red - MAC
I actually cannot believe I am writing this post up about my first ever MAC lipstick, eek! my MAC virginity has well and truly been taken. My ever so lovely friend Ellie had a look on my birthday wishlist and saw that I had 'Ruby Woo' on it and she decided to get it for me, but the MAC store she went to were all out so she went for Russian Red instead which is pretty similar.
Russian Red is the most beautiful lipstick. It looks like just a normal bright red lipstick but when I tried it on I realised it has a slight hint of orange in it. I love bright lipsticks so much, especially since I don't have the most amazing wardrobe. When I'm having a sort of boring outfit day I can just pop on a bright lipstick to jazz up my outfit a little. The lasting power of this lipstick is also incredible.. The fact you can do so much eating and drinking and still have it looking amazing on your lips without reapplying is just crazy cool. When I looked on the package and saw that it said 'matte lipstick' I was so happy. Ever since Rimmel London's Matte collection with Kate Moss, I've just become so obsessed with matte lipsticks and think they honestly look amazing on all of us ladies. Since getting Russian Red last week I really have struggled to not wear it even on chilled days at home, ha! I am so glad that I finally have my own staple red lipstick. I'll just say it now, you'll most probably see me wearing this lipstick so much on my blog but you can't blame me.. Right? ;) I really do love MAC's variety of lipsticks. I am already looking forward to getting more MAC lippy's!
What do you think of Russian Red? Can you recommend other good MAC lipsticks?
