To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass. 



Product Packaging: The lipglass come in a hard plastic tube with black screw type cover with the standard doe foot applicator wand. The tube contains 4.8g of product. It very similar in size and packaging to the NYX xtreme lip creams.

Product Colours: Russian Red is a opaque blue based red so it makes your teeth appear whiter. However if you use just a tiny amount and blend it over the entire lips it can look sheerer. Overall this colour is really opaque and can give you the intense colour of a lipstick. Russian Red can also be found as a MAC lipstick and nail polish in the MAC fashion sets. But not to worry since both lipglass and lipstick are part of MAC's permanent line so you can get them anytime.

Product Performance: When I think lipglass, I think of a thicker type lipgloss and that's exactly how lipglasses are. It is also quite sticky so you have to be careful not to get you hair in it which happened to me during my swatching! For me the product wore for between 3-4 hours. Once you eat or drink the colour comes off but the lipglass definitely holds on more to your lips than a regular lipgloss.

Product Flexibility: If you're are lipgloss loving girl like myself give this one a shot since it has the colour opacity of a lipstick, just in a lipgloss form. If you bold enough try wearing this colour to the office for a casual friday work look. It looks great with a simple cat eye!


Product Availability & Price: At MAC counters where-ever they maybe. I got mine in West Mall for $130TT.

Happy Russian Red!
XOXO

    1. In MAC i'm supposedly a NC 45 but because it's always sunny here I can get dark very quickly. I think this one should suit you though!

    1. Me too! Since it's permanent I thought I would get the lipglass this time and pick up the lipstick later since I have Revlon's In The Red which is also a gorgeous red matte lippie. I wanted to give it lots of love before I got the Russian red lipstick

Hot Milk Sponge Cake with Fresh Fruit & Coconut

In today's yummy post we are doing an easy sponge cake (no creaming of butter and sugar involved). Instead of torting this cake we are using two loaf pans to give us our two layers, which we will pull together with vanilla buttercream. I love the rectangular look of this cake rather than the traditional round or square but more importantly the flavors of the toasted coconut on the sides and fresh fruit on top makes for a mouth watering dessert.
