Hey beauty geeks, are you a MAC Addict? Well I am totally MAC addict these days. This is my first ever MAC lipstick review, because people love MAC lippies so much that there’s hardly a nice shade that has not been reviewed here earlier. While compiling some Lipstick posts I mention MAC Russian Red as a universally flattering red, I was shocked to see that it has not been reviewed yet but its better late than never (*if that means something*) I am here to review this lovely Red, dig in to know why I am going gaga
Price – 1450 INR (*Increased prices are such a pain, now we’ll say “Humare zamaane mein MAC Lipstick 990 me aati thi” *)
Product Description – It is described as an intense bluish red with a matte finish by Mac Cosmetics.
Packaging – It is a lipstick from the permanent range so nothing new about the packaging. Just the classy signature Black bullet which is sturdy, pretty and travel friendly.
My experience with MAC Lipstick Russian Red
I would describe Russian Red as a deep warm Red, it definitely has some blue undertones which I got to see when I tested it under different lightings. On my Medium complexion and neutral undertones it looks a bit warm red, it is the red I had always wished for. The color instantly brightens up my face and I can wear it without any makeup and it will still grab the attention straight to my face without looking Bold. It looks really deep red indoors and looks comparatively brighter outdoors. (*OMG! I don’t know why I am so serious reviewing this*). The shade is universally flattering but will look different on everyone but it has the power to be “your” Red lipstick . One of my cousin has very fair complexion with pink undertones and it looks more blue om her than it looks on me.
It has the signature Vanilla fragrance of MAC and the texture is sort of creamy matte unlike Ruby Woo which sips all the moisture of my lips, huh! The staying power is amazing, it stays for 6+ hours and leaves a great red stain behind (&it could not leave a pink stain, silly me ”) which is a Yayyy moment for me and yes #KhoobsuratMoment too it goes opaque in one swipe
What I like about MAC Lipstick Russian Red:
- Universal red.
- Classy packaging.
- Creamy matte finish.
- Not drying.
- Opaque coverage.
- No tugging or pulling while applying.
- Intense pigmentation.
- Doesn’t bleeds or feathers.
- Long Lasting
What I Don’t Like about MAC Lipstick Russian Red:
- Absolutely nothing.
P.S.- These are my No-Makeup selfies, I had just put on my lipstick and was in love with the color.
Do I recommend this Product?
I feel Russian Red is one color that adjusts itself according to the skintones and would look beautiful on everyone. I have found “My Red” in this lipstick. if you’re looking to get over your Ruby woo or buy a Red from MAC I will definitely recommend this one
