I was at MAC's the other day in Midvalley looking at their gorgeous lipsticks and was recommended Russian Red. Now I'm not one to use red lipstick on a regular basis because the only red lipstick that I own before this was Revlon's Love that red and that color I sometimes like on me and other times I don't. But I decided to try out Russian Red anyway after I swatched it in the store because it really is beautiful and I can't resist!
MAC lipstick in Russian Red
I never imagined the first MAC lipstick that I bought myself to be such a bold color to be honest. I thought I'd go for something nude or at least a pink for everyday use. There's another color which is lighter and less muted called Ruby Woo and that is also a stunning shade. Ruby Woo is also Sophia's (Fashionista804 on youtube) favorite MAC lipstick while Russian Red is Sammi's (beautycrush on youtube). Is it weird that I know this? lol
Russian Red is described as an intense blueish red on MAC's website. It also has a matte finish, which I love! This lipstick stays on for a very long time too, I remember wearing this out when we went to Pavilion and it's still there intact on my lips after 6 hours of shopping! Even after I ate, only the inner part of my lips has lost a bit of the color. It bleed a little on my lower lips at first but after that I went on and bought one of Sephora's red lip liners to line my lips prior to applying Russian Red and it turned out perfect. It's not too drying on the lips too and it doesn't transfer easily.

If you're looking for a good quality red lipstick, I really recommend you guys to get this one! You can purchase this at any MAC stores/counters in KLCC, Pavilion, Midvalley, Sogo, etc for RM68.
