Best red lipstick I've ever bought

I spent ages searching for a great red lipstick, they were always either to pink, or orangey. This one though is perfect, it's has that nice pool of of blood shade which I was looking for. It lasts a lot longer than most reds too. I applied it a few times over an hour and let it dry in between applications as well as full prep beforehand. There was practically no transfer onto my husband and none on to glasses while drinking. When it runs out I will have another ready and waiting!

Beautiful Matte Red!

This is an absolutely beautiful matte red lipstick and looks like a medium-dark red against my pale skin tone. On darker skin tones, it shows up as a brighter, more "true" red. It's definitely a must have for anyone who loves red lipsticks and it's definitely a classic!

Love it!!

perfect red for my skin color (medium-olive, yellow undertone). Doesnt make my teeth look yellow or stains them. Last a long time too! I like the matte and sometime I feel like my lips feel chalky buy I just put on a bit of lip gloss (non sticky). Will buy again!

This is the perfect red that does not stain my teeth or bleed. I love this blue tone lipstick makes my teeth look white. Its the only red I can rock comfortably. I LOVE ALL MAC LIPSTICKS. BUT RUSSIAN RED IS MY FAVORITE RED. Its not too drying its matte and stays on for a long time. Basically I love it and you need it in your life ;)

Can't get enough of this color!!! The blue undertones seem to go well with my fair skin tone. It's not overly drying like most matte lipsticks. It stays on all day too!!! I only touch it up after eating. I've gotten so many compliments on it!!! Wearing this makes me feel fierce ;D

I loved it since the first time i put it on in the mac shop.. Awesome pigmentation and staying power.. Not too dehydrating for beeing a matte lipstic and super nice for every kind of skin tone or hair colour!

Perfect red.

My favorite red lipstick. I have brown hair and brown eyes and cool skin tone and it matches well. Since it's matte it stays on for hours. Will buy again and again. Love.
