Turn your wrist upwards to see the color of your veins. If you have blue veins, it means you have cool undertones and need a blue-based red, like Russian Red. But if you have greenish veins, then you have warm undertones and need a orangey-red.

Color: Russian Red
MAC Cosmetics' most popular shade of red lipstick, "Russian Red", has become a staple in the makeup collection of many women, and with good reason.

Russian Red comes packaged in the signature gunmetal lipstick casing, as most standard MAC lipsticks do. The packaging is simple yet elegant, and the dark, shimmery color scheme adds an edgy touch. When I had originally purchased my very first MAC lipstick, I was immediately drawn to the bullet-like look of the casing. I had originally wanted to replace a Maybelline lipstick that broke in my purse (which left an awful, irremovable mess that ultimately left me having to replace the bag), but instead opted for one of my very first "high end" makeup products-- MAC's "Captive", another matte finish, plum lipstick. I was very impressed by the endurance of the package: that lipstick had sat in my bag, battered around by the various contents, and had lasted up until I had the wore the lip product down to nothing. Not once did the lid pop off and make a mess.

MAC's Russian Red lipstick is a classified as a matte finish, with an intense blue undertone. As someone who personally prefers the satin finish over any of the other formulas offered by MAC, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the fluidity of the lipstick was quite reasonable. Unlike many other lipsticks that advertise the "matte look" as the end result, Russian Red goes on without leaving the lips feeling parched or stiff. MAC lipsticks "contain natural oils which function as emollients," which gives the lipstick a better texture, and allows the lips to retain more moisture. However, prepping my lips with an exfoliating lip scrub as well as a bit of Carmex, may be to thank for the consistency of the product.

Love it. A deep intense color...but you have to be able to put up with dry lips. The lipstick has a ton of pigment, but little moisture. But it's worth it if you want a great matte color.

I love MAC Matte Russian Red; this is not the same as the one I got on the MAC website. This one says A12 and mine says A33 on the bottom. This lipstick is not a matte and goes on almost as light as a lip gloss. Not happy.

I was suspicious when this arrived.It was pinkish red and looked nothing like pictures I've seen of people wearing, MAC Matte Russian Red.It went on sheer,not Matte at all.I decided to order,MAC Matte Russian Red directly from MAC.When compared next to each other it was very plain to see that the lipstick sold here is not an authentic MAC Lipstick.The one I bought from, http://www.maccosmetics.com/product/shaded/168/310/Products/Lips/Lipstick/Lipstick/index.tmpl number is AA3.The one I bought from this seller is A12.I took pictures to show the difference,I wish I could post them.Very disappointed and feel swindled.I'm sending it back,hopefully I'll get a refund.

This is the softest red lipstick. The texture is matte; apply with a lipstick brush for an even perfect outline. Smooth texture without shine.

I am sure this is just right for someone. But not for me.

It tasted and smelled awful according to my husband, who kissed me when I wore it. Smelled awful to me, just wearing it. The smell was of stale wax, face powder/liquid foundation and petroleum jelly mixed together.

I would have put up with any of the above if it had looked halfway decent on me, but it looked awful, too! Purple or bluish, way too cartoonish and over the top to wear to work, and not a true, deep red, at all. I will use it for the Halloween party we're going too, though it wont look quite right for that, either: Morticia Addams had REAL red lips.

It stayed on for a long time, a plus. Was drying on my lips and had to keep putting on gloss to moisturize, a minus. It did smear badly when drinking coffee just after applying it, another minus, though what was left did last for hours after that, a plus.

I'm a MAC powder and eye shadow fan and have been for many years. But I just hate this lipstick.

I am very fair-skinned, with dark brown hair and medium brown eyes and little to no natural color to my lips or cheeks. I can wear true reds. Rose-y pinks, garnet shades and cherry reds, too. I wear jewel colors in clothes which look great with fair skin; but I do have to stay away from magenta pinks or neon pinks. I can wear neutral and pastel clothing, but not brights saturated with intense color and certainly not orange or purple. I usually look great in strong color.

Can't wear this one.

Thought I found "the one", a red lipstick I could wear daily that would stay on and look great with everything. With all the hype about this particular color, was absolutely sure I had. Nope. I'll be giving it to a friend.

Next time, I will do the best thing for me and go try it on at the department store counter first, and not trust reviews on the Internet. With shipping, I just wasted twenty-one bucks.
