Merry Christmas! I hope you have a wonderful day spent with family and/or friends and get everything your heart desires!
Today I am showing my very favorite red lipstick of all-time on the 18th day of the 22 Days of Red Lipstick series. The shade is MAC Russian Red.
Me and Russian Red go waaaaaaaay back. To the 90’s. Once I discovered this shade all other shades just didn’t quite stand up to it. In a word it’s superb.
Russian Red is a cool-toned, blue-based, bright red matte. It’s intense, pigmented, vivid, luscious and perfect. Ok maybe not 100% perfect because it is a little drying after wearing it for awhile, but one can solve that by adding a lip balm underneath. When anyone ever mentions a bright red lipstick, Russian Red is the shade I always think of first. I love the name as well, it’s most excellent.
Availability: MAC (part of the perm line, yahoo!).
Have you tried Russian Red yet? If not, what are you waiting for? 😉
