I got this as a Back 2 Mac shade, almost as an afterthought – and I am impressed! It’s crazy pigmented, and the shade is so flattering – much more so than I expected.

It can be hard to get a crisp line straight from the bullet, and one does NEED a clear line with a shade like this. The upside is, it’s so matte that I can go outside my natural lip line and it will stay there. It’s not drying or hydrating – I dab a little lip conditioner over the top after about 4 hours and I’m good.

It really creates a classic, pin-up look – AND it does actually makes my teeth look whiter (no, really!!).

I have very fair skin with yellow-neutral undertones, and this lipstick looks so flattering on me! It’s matte so not the most moisturizing formula, but it’s not drying either and doesn’t really tug or pull when applying. It is very long lasting, I wore it for my wedding banquet (+10 dishes!) and only had to reapply at the end. Although it doesn’t tend to bleed, I use with MAC Cherry lip liner to get a very defined edge. Super recommended!

A beautiful shade of red! I have warm toned skin and this is still very flattering on me. It’s my darker, sexier shade of red (Lady Danger is my bright red). Even though it’s not a hydrating lipstick, it’s very creamy when it goes on and it’s opaque in one sweep. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a great, versatile red.

Fantastic red that suit most skin tones. On my lips, it’s as a cool tone red as much as a berry-ish red.
Long lasting and easy to apply.
A perfect dupe for this is Maybelline ColorSensational in Red Revival (645). The same shade but with a glossier finish. It doesn’t last as long on the lips, though.

Temptalia Review

Russian Red Lipstick is medium-dark red with mostly neutral undertones, though against my warmer skin, it reads just a little cool-toned. It has a matte finish, and it is part of the permanent range. Maybelline Very Cherry is lighter, more blue-based. MAC Runaway Red is darker, more blue-based. MAC Such Flare! is deeper. Guerlain Habit Rouge is lighter and more orange-toned. MAC Prolong is more blue-based. Guerlain Garconne is darker. (9, 10, 9, 10, 4.5, 4; A)
