Anyone who knows me knows I love a red lip. It`s a staple lip colour for me that I know works well majority of the time. I remember my very first red lipstick, it was by Clinique and my Mam gave it to me as she didn`t use it and I actually still have the tube! When I went to Newcastle last month (see my haul here) I picked up my very first MAC Lipstick. After being immediately drawn to the reds and being dazzled by all the other stunning colours I picked up the timeless Russian Red...
I`d just like to say I friggin` love this lipstick and don`t have a bad word to say about it. Russian Red is an incredibly pigmented, rich, bold red and comes in my favourite finish; Matte. As much as I love glossy lips, there`s something about the matte finish that I`m drawn too. It has the perfect balance of colour that makes it suitable and completely flattering for both warm and cool skin tones. Despite it being a matte finish, it`s not particularly drying on the lips as long as you exfoliate and moisturise before applying. I use my Bubblegum Lip Scrub by Lush followed by any ol` lip balm I have lying around before I sweep this on. The lasting time on this is outstanding, I wore it for a full shift at work and even after I`d ate on my lunch break, there was still no need for me to reapply the product. I also found that it does not bleed/feather even when I wear it without a lip liner, which is obviously, a huge thumbs up. I`ve been super impressed by my first MAC Lipstick and am so excited to try another one.
