MAC RUSSIAN RED Lipglass Review & Swatches




My first review on wise she was MAC Lipglass – LUST FOR LIFE from LE collection but from now onwards I will share my reviews for Permanent line ; first covering most of the shades and then gradually cover LE shades which are well worth every penny.

My experience with MAC RUSSIAN RED Lipglass :

Shade – RUSSIAN RED is described as VIVID INTENSE BLUISH RED, however it is a touch warm toned bright cherry red shade with hint of orange in it, just a slight bit of warmer shade as opposed to the lipstick of same name – RUSSIAN RED which is blue based RED. There is no shimmer or glitter in this, there is pure high glass shine which makes my lips look fuller.

Texture and Staying power – MAC Lip glass have sticky texture and some of them also settles in fine lines but RUSSIAN RED feels nice and doesn’t settle in fine lines nor does it bleed or appear uneven . I had this for some 5 years and you can see how wonderful it looks even now. I get 4 plus hrs of wear with this and then it leaves a nice red tint behind.

Pigmentation – It is gorgeously pigmented and is opaque in single swipe, you don’t need to run your wand again and again; it layers opaque nicely covering every corners of lips.

What I like about MAC Lip glass RUSSIAN RED:

  • I adore the bright cherry red shade – little warm but looks wonderful.
  • The vanilla scent which we all are so addicted to.
  • The sponge doe foot applicator which makes the application perfect.
  • I love how the gloss sits on lips nicely without settling in lines or bleeding.
  • The opaqueness of this shade is incredible.

WHAT I don’t like about MAC Lip glass RUSSIAN RED :

  • The stickiness and the price tag.

Ratings – 4.5 / 5

Recommendations – I love MAC Lip glass from permanent line and they do offer some amazing shades in LE collection no doubt. They are sticky but do stay on lips a little long as compared to some other gloss , some of them settle in fine lines and I will make sure to point that in my coming reviews , this however is beautiful shade with even wonderful staying power and texture .
