Whenever someone asks me “what’s your favourite lipstick?” my reply will always be MAC Russian Red lipstick. The main reason is because this lipstick is the one that I chose for my big day, my wedding. I think when someone chooses something for their wedding then in their eyes that product or item is perfect for them and that’s exactly how I feel about this lipstick.
Like 90% of MAC lipsticks it has the very iconic bullet shaped design for it’s outer packaging as it’s lipstick tube. The lipstick itself is one of MAC’s Matte formulated lipsticks and true to the formulation name, this lipstick has not a single bit of a shine to it whatsoever once it’s applied on the lips. In fact it’s so matte that it can be borderline drying on the lips if worn excessively.
I tend to avoid wearing this on a day to day basis instead reserving it for those special occasions when I want a true red. Also when I do want to wear it, I make sure to exfoliate my lips before hand with a lip scrub like the Primark Beauty: PS..PRO Lip Scrub and then applying a good hydrating lip balm or lip mask. My favourite lip mask is the Nugg Beauty: Lip Mask.
I think what makes this lipstick so special is the colour of it. It’s the most intense and flawless red shade that seems to falter almost every single skin tone that wears it. I say this is my favourite lipstick but I’m not alone in that statement. This lipstick is a favourite of a lot of makeup artist’s and beauty bloggers also.
