I love red lipsticks and my all time favorite lipsticks are Mac lipsticks.
I like drugstore make up but I only use Mac red lipsticks because I know the lasting power is great and I don't want my red lipstick wearing off throughout the day.
I was at MAC yet again to pick up my liquid foundation and I decided to get another lipstick so my husband picked out a M.A.C Red lipstick.
M.A.C Red lipstick is a Satin finish so it is very pigmented and the staying power is great which is really important for a red lipstick. Since it is a Satin finish it can be very drying but I applied this lipstick and it actually felt moisturizing and light weight which is really weird because I have a lot of Satin lipsticks from Mac and all of them dry out my lips really bad.
This is a very intense red lipstick, it's a very true red. M.A.C Red lipstick does look a lot like Russian Red from Mac except M.A.C Red does not dry out my lips and has a little bit of a sheen to it.
It is a blue based red just like Russian Red lipstick but it applies on my lips really smoothly and it doesn't emphasize any lines on my lips like other red lipsticks do.
The staying power is also great. I always apply a lip liner before I apply the lipstick so it lasts even longer, a good 5-6 hours if I don't eat or drink.
Russian Red is very similar to this lipstick which I don't think you need to have both lipsticks but if you don't like the texture of Russian Red and you think it's too drying then you should definitely try M.A.C Red lipstick.
- Highly pigmented
- Good staying powder
- Does not dry out my lips
- No cons for me I love this lipstick
