Mac is a well-known brand for creating versatile shades for every skin tone. Mac has created a retro matte Ruby Woo a unique red shade that created quite a stir in the fashion industry. Now, talking about the Mac Russian red which is another iconic creation from MAC has a distinct level of comfortless.
MAC Russian Red is a matte lipstick, which is surprisingly creamy matte. It glides on smoothly, with no harsh lines on the lips. Mac describes Russian Red as an Intense bluish-red. The biggest perk, it suits all skin tones.
Nowadays, I grab Mac Russian lipstick more often than ruby woo. The downside of retro matte lipstick is a true matte formula that provides very little hydration compared to regular matte lipsticks like MAC Russian Red. Its formula is par excellence.
Mac Russian Red lipstick is very opaque and gives an excellent color payoff, and for that, you just need to make sure your lips are not too chapped. Otherwise, you are in safe hands. As soon as you put it on your lips, it transfers a beautiful red with the right amount of moisturizer, and that makes it a winner.
You can see below in the picture I am flaunting my red lips.
I like how this shade brings out the balance in the look, even if I am wearing it with no heavy makeup. It suits my skin tone more than other red lipsticks. In my opinion, this is a long-lasting formula and keeps color intact for a few hours (5-6 hours). No frequent touch-up is needed. But being said that, it is not transfer proof and you need to seal it perhaps with tissue paper just to secure it.
This is the most beautiful Red lipstick from Mac, and I would recommend it to all my friends. Especially my Indian friends, who usually struggle to find the perfect Red to complement their warm skin tones.
MAC Russian Red lipstick is not a new bee in the town but still, I wanted to review it as every opinion counts. Also, it helps to understand the appearance of the red shades and hues on different skin tones.
Let me know which one is your favorite Red lipstick so far.
