Hello everyone! In between my 18th birthday and my party, I went on a small shopping trip with two of my friends. Before I stepped foot into the MAC store in town, I was unsure whether to pick up Ruby Woo or Russian Red, even after looking through so many swatches online! I asked a woman in the MAC store to swatch them for me and I had decided as soon as I saw them both on my hand that Russian Red was the one for me.
I have mentioned before how I love the sleek black and glittery packaging of MAC lipsticks, they look so sophisticated and definitely look a cut above drugstore lipsticks.
Russian Red is a deep red with a perfect matte finish. To me, it doesn’t feel drying on the lips and has such an easy application! Before applying this I do exfoliate my lips and apply lip balm – just to make sure my lips don’t look weird and flaky.
This lipstick lasts such a long time. I wore it at my 18th birthday party, I applied it at 5pm and it still hadn’t worn off by 1am! Even after many drinks, there was no need for a touch up. I kept asking everyone if my lipstick was still on, and I was surprised when everyone kept saying ‘YES!’. I’m still astounded it stayed on for 8 hours!
