MAC Week of REDS - Day 2 'Russian Red'

15.10.13
R3

Russian Red is my second pick for the week and is another gorgeous red by MAC. Although it may not seem it in the pictures it's definitely a deeper, more muted red than Ruby Woo. Once on Russian Red is lot more cooler toned, to me it's more of a tomato red and I really enjoy wearing it during the day.

I find this lipstick is so easy to wear, it's also a matte finish but somehow this is much more comforting on the lips than Ruby Woo. It's not as drying and I find that texture is a lot more creamier on the lips BUT it lasts just as long! If blue toned reds aren't for you, then this is definitely one I recommend checking out!

Whenever I wear this colour it reminds me of a story that I want to share with you. About two years ago I was in Miami, shopping on my birthday and I was buying shoes. I was purchasing some Sam Edelman heels and two french girls from Paris walked in. I needed advice from ladies, so of course I asked them which out of the two pairs I should go for. That was it - The conversation was as short as that. About a few weeks later I returned from US and got a comment on my blog from one of the girls I had met that day. She had randomly Googled MAC Russian Red and it brought her to my blog. How crazy? I had not mentioned ANYTHING about MouldyFruit to them, nor mentioned the lipstick - It wasn't as if she googled the Sam Edelman shoes, it was a complete fluke that she ended up on my blog! It made me realise how small the world is and how amazing moments like that are! So when I wear Russian Red, I think of that story and it makes me smile!

  2. Hey! I definitely prefer blue toned reds, not because my teeth are yellow or anything like that hahaha but just because I like the cooler tones, however now that winter is coming I feel like I should try the warmer reds - Russian Red looks so glamorous on you, I would wear it in the day time too, I know a lot of girls are afraid to rock a red lip in the day but I say go for it! I haven't got this lipstick in my collection but I will have soon!

    Thank you for posting this
    Love Jayde-Paris
