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 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!
Happy Russian Red!
this is a mega hot shade on you.ReplyDelete
you look gorgeous! :)
Thanks Lena! I think this would look great on you too, it's just one of those shades that might be universally flatteringDelete
That's a killer pout! Can I ask you what is your MAC skintone? Looks like you're close to mine. In that case I must note down the makeup shades that flatter you the most :)ReplyDelete
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!Delete
Thank you for responding. I'm 40-41 from MAC. Since I'm close as yours, I can safely give this a tryDelete
So pretty! Really makes your lips stand out!ReplyDelete
Thanks Elex! Do you have a red like this?Delete

Thanks Chelsea! I think you would be great in red too!Delete
This looks great naomi...Russian red lipstick has been on my list forever. The lipglass really suits uReplyDelete
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 lipstickDelete
I think the lipglass and lipstick is perm though...I have alot of reds too but i still want Russian red! ps I love your new blog header its too cuteDelete
Oh yes that's what I meant, both permanent so I can get the lipstick later on! Actually I was staring at yours and thought I would upgrade my header!!!!Delete
