Red lipsticks are everything to me. When I am wearing one I feel that I conquer the world, that I magnetize all eyes. Coco Chanel said “If you are sad, wear red lipstick and attack” (hahaha), this quote is one of my most favorite beauty quotes ever!
I am obsessed with red lips, pure red or lighter or darker lipsticks they must be in my makeup bag (to be honest I have the 50 shades of red – hahaha). I was feeling that the MAC Russian Red Lipstick is a must for me (and you) like breath is necessary to stay alive (hahaha). This lipstick is highly pigmented, medium (a tiny bit dark) red with blue undertones and a semi-matte finish. The MAC Russian Red is lightweight with a velvety – creamy formula. It was a surprise that it lasts for hours, I was wearing it a few days ago from 8 o’clock on the morning up to 13:00 o’clock, this means 6 hours! It is very comfortable, but I was expecting Russian Red to be more hydrated because it gave a feeling that is dry (the last 2-3 hours), not too much, just a tiny bit. With eight words, long-wearing, easy to apply and highly pigmented.
