MAC Russian Red

So, I think my new thing is red lipsticks, I am so in love with this colour. Russian Red by MAC is a slightly matte, deep red and it’s my new all time favourite. I first dabbled with red lipstick earlier this year when I bought MAC Everyday Diva, which is a glossy, pillar box red. However, Russian Red suits my skin tone so much better, since I got it, it is the only lipstick I have worn, it has never been off my lips!

Despite being a matte colour, it is not drying at all. It is much easier to apply than Everyday Diva, as the colour does not bleed at all, which results in a much crisper and more defined Cupid’s bow. I also think the shade is sexier, even if I do say so myself!

I have been using MAC Cherry lip pencil as a liner with this shade, and it is a near perfect match.

Russian Red is available to buy here. Does anyone have a favourite MAC red lipstick? How about Ruby Woo? I’d be interested to hear people’s experiences of this, as I think it will probably be my next lipstick purchase.

Thanks for reading!

MAC Everyday Diva

Bank holidays mean treats, so this weekend I treated myself to a new lipstick and lip liner. MAC Everyday Diva is a glossy, pillar box red, classic lipstick. I got the MAC Cherry lip pencil to use with it and it blends perfectly. I really like this lipstick, I’ve never worn red before but I thought it was about time to try new things away from my favoured baby pink or nude lipsticks.

Everyday Diva is really bright and I think it really compliments my skin tone. It’s not something I would wear during the day to work, as I wouldn’t feel office appropriate in this given my full lips and prominent Cupid’s Bow, however, I think this will definitely be my go to on upcoming nights out! Application was easy enough, but without using a lipliner you wouldn’t have to have the steadiest hands known to mankind to get this on perfectly. Using a lipliner to outline my lips made applying this lipstick simple and quick. I would certainly recommend MAC Cherry as an ideal partner to this lipstick.
Everyday Diva and Cherry are available to buy here and here.

What do you think and which lipsticks are you loving at the moment? Let me know and thanks for reading!
