PRODUCT REVIEW: MAC'S RUSSIAN RED
I first tried this shade from my sister, I re-did my review before and for the previous review you can go to the link here.
I now enjoy using reds and I plan to start collecting red lipsticks and soon too! I don't care if nudes suits me more but I want to use all the shades of lipstick that I want now. This shade is number one on my list. When I tested using this again and again, I prefer it over Ruby Woo. The Russian Red's texture is definitely better.
Shade: Russian Red
Product Description: Intense bluish-red
Very pigmented that one layer of lipstick is enough. It leaves even stain on lips. Application of Russian Red is smoother because it does not tug on lips like Ruby Woo. I also enjoy that this lipstick does not easily transfers on fabrics or utensils.
The lipstick does not build up on lip lines like other matte lipsticks. (Check the swatch below)
Since it is matte, it causes dryness on my lips. I suggest that you hydrate your lips well before and after use.
Buy again? 100% (I plan to buy this shade on my next lipstick purchase, just borrowed this from my sister for my re-do review.)
Overall Rating: 5/5
Where to buy? MAC stores (Trinoma, SM North, SM MOA, Rustan's Department Stores - except Gateway)
