I love this lipstick! It's really easy to get a crisp line straight from the bullet with this formula. It never gathers or looks dry. It's not moisturising, but it's not drying either. I always prep my lips with MAC Lip Conditioner before I wear their mattes, blot my lips then apply the lipstick. After about 4 hours of wear I dab a tiny bit of Lip Conditioner over the top and that keeps my lips happy. I can skip that step without
On my NC20 skintone (I have neutral-to-warm undertones) it looks like a warm-toned red, super flattering and lovely. However on my NC40 friend, it looks straight orange (though just as lovely)! I was shocked to see it's such a chameleon!
Such a showstopper of a red color! It's super flattering on my warm skin due to it's orange tones and is my bright, sexy red (Russian Red is my darker red shade). Lasts probably 4-5 hours and leaves a slight stain behind. I would definitely recommend going into a MAC store to try it on before buying it as it is a very bright shade. It's a great shade of red for summertime!
