Today I thought I would review the MAC Russian Red lipstick. I adore it. I bought it with my birthday money to treat myself. I had been wanting to try MAC products for ages. It cost £14, I'm haven't 100% decided if the lipstick is worth the "pricey" cost just yet, I'm still debating.
This lipstick is the perfect red. Red lipstick makes your lips stand out. I wouldn't say it's light, more of a medium/dark toned red but it is slightly bright. It's perfect for nights out! I think it looks nice in the day too. I love the bullet packaging. I think it's cute yet sophisticated.
It is a matte lipstick and I do believe it is long lasting. At meals I have noticed it comes off quickly buts that is obviously because you're eating so just take the lipstick with you and reapply it after food.
As you can see it's a gorgeous shade of red!
I do think the lighting has made the lipstick look brighter and almost a dark pink in the picture above .. naughty lighting!
My only complaint about the lipstick is that it does dry my lips out, even if I put on a moisturising lip balm before applying it. I do hate having dry lips so this little problem is annoying. It's winter now so my lips will be even more vulnerable. The dryness doesn't last long when the lipstick has been removed and I've put on more lip balm though, so I guess the lipstick isn't too bad.
I hope you enjoyed this little review. It's been so nice to blog again. School has been keeping me busy! Thank-you for reading! xx
