I love doing my make up and trying out new colours for different looks. Coming up to winter last year, I decided that I wanted a nice dark red lipstick and had a look in the shops. After testing out different colours I decided to buy the MAC lipstick because the shades available were my favourite and I had also heard lots of good things from friends and family about the MAC lipsticks.
You can buy this lipstick in a very wide range of colours, I found lots of different pinks, reds, nudes and purples. There is lots of different shades to choose from and I think almost everyone would find one to suit their complexion/tastes.
I decided to pick up the dark red shade called Russian Red.
This lipstick is very easy to apply, it is applied like any other lipstick on the market. You do not need to apply a lot of it at a time in order to get good results as the pigmentation in this lipstick is very good.
I really liked this lipstick and found that it looked great on my lips. It gives my lips a really nice shine to them and makes them look really healthy and volumised. This lipstick also feels really nice on my lips, it is almost velvety in texture and does not dry them out as quick as other lipsticks I have tried.
I found that this lipstick had really good staying power, it needed to be reapplied every 4 hours or so, which I think is really good as I eat and drink regularly. I found that this lipstick didn't really fade much within the first few hours of wear, which makes it a great lipstick to wear if you are going out somewhere nice as you do not need to keep re applying it.
Price and Availability
You can pick this lipstick up in Debenhams for around £14, I think that this is a decent price for a lipstick of this quality and would definitely buy other colours in this. I got mine on sale in Debenhams when I was buying it, so it is good to look out for it on offer.
I think that this is a fantastic lipstick and I will definitely be picking up other colours in the future. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a nicely pigmented, easy wore lipstick that has good staying power. Overall I would give this lipstick 5 out of 5 stars.
