I never thought I say this about a lipgloss called "Beige Elastic" (it sounds like something off a pair of granny panties), but it is AMAZING! This is an opaque, amped up champagne nude color with tons of shimmer. It's absolutely luminous! The texture is thick and creamy, without being sticky or greasy. It's really long-lasting. I'm glad I ignored my prejudice against beige and tried this.
If you use to regular lip stick than yes this is an amazing lipstick super pigmented, leaves lips moist but still a matte lip.my only and biggest tiff I have with this is that it bleeds. Ive tried using lip liners and using concealer it just doesn't work for me. Im a perfectionist with my makeup I hate little bleeds and uneven lips are my biggest pet peev so I just wish that they made matching lip liners that prevented that so I wouldn't have to keep reapplying and touching up. But still gorgeous color and great pigment. As for the it being matte, it isn't a drying matte.
I love and use several Mac Lipglass colors but Russian Red is my absolute favorite. I wear it all of the time. If I wear it with different MAC matte lipsticks, I can control the color intensity, tone and brightness of the Mac Lipglass. I like the versatility of Russian Red Lipglass. I am an African-American female executive in global IT firm who spend much of my time on business travel throughout North America. I meet with clients, customers, internal and external executives and staff much of my time. I always need my makeup to be memorable without continuous touch-ups. My skin coloring is a mid-tone brown with gold undertones. I have the same colors in my hair. Plus, I am so tired of the nude lip colors after so many years. I have great full lip, great skin and hair coloring and KNOW the Russian Red Lipglass color is memorable and perfect. Hopefully, it will work for you!!
At first I balked at the price of the lipstick, but upon closer inspection realized the lipstick included a mirror for make up touch ups, no more digging for your compact mirror plus lipstick! Also, I had my heart set on a matte lipstick I usually go for a more natural lip color as I'm 53 and purple or black or any of the on point lipsticks that are out now I'd look like a dork n like I'm trying to act like I was still young enough to pull those colors off, plus I'm a tomboy even at my age jeans t-shirt suits me just fine, I was worried about the color of the lipstick because again I'm no fun n like mine w/out glitter or the frosted or pearlized lip colors I wanted it to be as close to my natural lip color as possible as I like the natural look just to enhance what I've got, plus I never buy makeup off line as I like to see it try it to make sure it works w my lip color n all that GOS w/it plus it's been a while since I'd purchased any makeup lipstick included, I'm just so impressed w this line I'm going to stick w it, it's not to matte, not to lip glossy just looks like my natural lips! The part that really helped me was how they actually picture each color and you can zoom in on it really helped my choice making especially since I was a first time buyer online for makeup, I like the fact that when I put it on it looks natural, I don't need two coats and makes my lips look moist w out going over board if you preferred a wetter look you could ABSOLUTLY take a clear lip gloss or one w a tint n make it glossier and a new color as it's pretty neutral but very very pretty on, I love it and completely understand the cost, as my mom used to say "you get what you pay for" and w this you get the bang for your buck!! I like this so much, I might just get brave and get it in red, I've always loved Marylyn Monroe's red lipstick color very sexy....for date night? ...we'll have to wait n see !!
