My Experience with Mac Matte Lipstick Russian Red:
After having ruby woo my first ever red lipstick, I admit I keep on buying red and red lipsticks every time I went to Mac store or in blog sales held by bloggers …and I realize when it comes about red, there are two types of women, those who dare not to wear red and those who will never dare to leave red lipsticks and I think I can see myself in to second group after buying ruby woo. Yes I admit “I started loving red” but all cool –tone red goes really well on my warm skin tones. I brought Russian red just in fascination after having ruby woo, so that I can see what lies in “Russian red”…I know a silly excuse of a lipstick lover who later became Mac obsessed and beauty blogger.

Anyways coming back to the review of the classic red lipstick “Russian red” the lipstick comes under permanent range of Mac lipsticks. The packaging of the lipstick is the usual black and silver case packaging with the signature vanilla scent of the lipstick. The shade Russian red can be describe as cool tone red which I think much similar to ruby woo except the intensity of the red in this lipstick. The lipstick is neither too bright nor too dark and comes under the matte range of Mac lipsticks. Russian red is one of the hottest selling shades in Mac stores because of its neutral undertones I think.

The texture being matte it is smooth on lips, thus glides smoothly on lips without any tugging or pulling of lips. The lipstick is creamy matte. The lipstick stays pretty 6 hours on my lips without fading and fades a little bit after heavy meal but that fading is also even so I don’t mind carrying it for next 1-2 hours.

Now coming to the pros and cons:-

My Likes with Mac Matte Lipstick Russian Red:
• Nice pigmentation.
• Creamy matte in texture.
• Stays long time for approx. 6 hours.
• Suits to all skin tones.
• Doesn't bleed.

My Dislikes with Mac Matte Lipstick Russian Red:
• As it is the hottest selling shades so it remain most of the time out of stock so apart from the issue of availability I didn't found any cons of this lipstick.

My Ratings:-4.5/5

My Recommendation:-
As I told earlier if you are in the group of those women who never dare to leave red lipstick then you must have this one otherwise I would say if you have Ruby woo and you are happy with your one red lipstick then you can happily skip her co-sister “Russian red” for now.

About The Writer:
I am Samannita belongs from the “city of Joy” Kolkata…Being a housewife and a mother of a 2 yrs. old son ,I love to spend my leisure hours reviewing makeup or talk about cosmetics or surfing net about online going offers on cosmetics. My hair color is Black and it is wavy, trying hard to straight it naturally…as I love straight hair. I am NC 35 means fair with warm undertone but blessed with oily skin which I just hate most about my skin. When it comes about makeup, I am obsessed with lipsticks mostly. I believe “anybody can be beautiful by proper using of makeup and makeup doesn't mean wearing a mask on your face but to enhance your beauty by hiding your flaws and highlighting your best feature “. Well, that’s it …Keep smiling because this is the best exercise that you can do to tone your facial muscles and can look younger for ages :)
