Availability: MAC products are available at MAC stores and counters worldwide as well as on the MAC website (which may differ depending on your country). I purchased this particular lipstick which is part of their permanent line, while in Munich from the MAC counter in Karstadt. To find your nearest retailer its best to go directly to your countries MAC website.
What I liked: Oh my, where shall I start? First of all, the packaging is sturdy, functional, not bulky and looks amazing. I personally think that the classic MAC lipstick bullet is not only simple but also timeless. The formula is wonderful. It glides on smoothly and doesnt feel dry or sticky at all, it almost has a buttery consistency, which I think is particularly impressive considering this is one of their matte shades. It has a pleasant subtle vanilla scent which I really like. Russian Red is super pigmented, which is something I have heard is standard for all MAC products. I found this lipstick to be pretty long lasting as well.
What I didnt like: ...crickets chirping...
At the moment I own four MAC products, three of which are lipsticks and I have been so impressed by and happy with everything. In fact, that initial purchase at the beginning of July was the beginning of what I predict will be beautiful relationship that will stand the test of time. Im officially smitten.
