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.Read more ›
I accidentally stumbled upon NYX's Matte Lipstick in Perfect Red and that's really what it is - perfect. Try that. Dense, gorgeous color, stays on (except after eating). It has the kind of waxy, rich, thick formula that you actually need to pull off the look.
anyway that's my 2 cents!!

This is my absolute favorite! It's a blue based red so it helps make your teeth look whiter. It has a matte finish but it's not too drying for your lips. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Coleen Mae
