You'll NEVER guess what I picked up in a blog sale recently... Only the infamous Mac Russian Red lipstick! Lucky me!
Adorned by celebs including Gwen Stefani and Jessica Alba and having been on my make-up wishlist for a while, I forked out the £8 (inc P+P!) and it's been love at first swipe :)
Here it is without flash...
and with flash...
A true, classic Hollywood red :)
Here's my lips before...
and after...Talk about pigment!!! I've never experienced anything like it! I lined my lips with Rimmel's Red Dynamite lip liner, and made the mistake of applying Russian Red straight to the lips, oh no! It went everywhere, so I tried again with a lip brush and it was perfect :) Only needed a really thin coat, and do you know the best bit? It stayed put all night!
Here's a face shot...In my opinion, this shade would suit any skin tone! I applied a clear gloss to finish the look and it stayed put after a 2-course meal and many a pint of water :)
I'm on the hunt for a more wearable MAC shade now as I've found my holy grail red :)
