What we say:
When it comes to make-up looks, there is nothing more beautiful than a clean complexion paired with a beautiful red statement lip!
In my opinion there is only one red lipstick that need be mentioned and that is MAC shade Russian Red. I have a cool skin tone, so I prefer lipstick shades that have a blue undertone and MAC have perfected that with Russian Red. It is the perfect true red that has just the right amount of cool tone in it!
If you are looking for a long lasting lipstick then MAC’s original lipstick formula is the one for you. I apply my lipstick with a lip brush as I find it to be the most precise application and once I have blotted my lips my lipstick is set for up to 4 hours. Considering this lipstick isn’t marketed as a “long wear” lipstick, I’d say 4 hours is pretty darn good, especially considering the fact that this lipstick can make it through eating!
The finish of this lipstick is the perfect mix of matte and high shine as it doesn’t have an overly glossy finish, but it stills has a touch of shine to it. Because it has a touch of shine to it, I also find that it isn’t as drying as most matte lipsticks.
I have two nude shades in this formula and I love them both equally. I honestly don’t think you can go wrong with this lipstick. With over 100 shades to choose from, you are bound to find our perfect shade for every season!
