MAC | Russian Red

For those of you who don't know, I'll let you into a secret...this is my first MAC lipstick! I actually won this lipstick from Lil Miss Chickas blog competition and have been desperate to try it since I found out I won and I am completely and utterly in love!

I was slightly dubious to begin with as the colour is a little out of my comfort zone and I thought it would be better suited to blondes as Charlotte from LMC is blonde and it looks great on her, but I think that I can pull it off fairly well! I think it will be more of a going out/evening lipstick rather than an everyday one. It will probably have its first outing this Friday for my birthday meal.

I love the MAC packaging, I have a few other products from them and have always felt that its quite sophisticated. The actual lipstick has a really lovely smell (is that weird??) and it doesn't feel drying on my lips at all. So far I have been wearing it for a good few hours and haven't needed to reapply.

I can't wait to get a lot of wear out of it this a/w season as reds are supposed to be a key colour this season.

I'm definitely going to be picking up some more shades soon and may even start a little MAC lippy collection!

What shades would you recommend for my hair colour/skin type?


  1. This colour is gorgeous on you! I think red lipstick is great for brunettes, especially those with paler skin tones, absolutely gorgeous!

  2. I think dark hair and red lips looks great! :)
