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.

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.

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 seriously LOVE Russian Red. This is my favorite red so far from MAC. It matches with pretty much any skin tone, very complimentary.

If you're like me you're dreaming of finding the perfect Madonna lipstick from Desperately Seeking Susan - rich, velvety, pigmented, like clothing for your skin. I read somewhere that this is the lipstick she used on the blonde ambition tour, but I don't buy it. Either that was some kind of PR trick or they changed the formula. This is one is not that highly pigmented, it's shiny, and it's more magenta to my eyes.

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!!

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 fake Mac lipstick. it is runny. and too creamy. I've never been so mad. I ordered this with over night shipping (came late) to match a dress I have. looks nothing like the color. And also half of the bottle is MELTED. this is s***ty (excuse my French) lipstick. Never again will I buy this brand. FAKE. If you have ever purchased a mac lipstick before its small. This bottle is huge.
