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!!
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 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.
