The Scarlet Season: MAC Russian Red Lipglass

MAC Russian Red Lipglass ($14.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a nearly opaque bright cherry red lipgloss. It’s a beautiful shimmer-less shade of red that goes on easily. MAC’s Lipglass is one of the tackier lipglosses on the market, which is something that I don’t mind–particularly because it tends to last much longer on my lips than the average lipglass. I find Lipglass lasts me around four hours or so, which is good time for a gloss. Russian Red Lipglass is really a classic MAC gloss — if you are at all a red fan, this is definitely one you should consider owning.

What about you? Would you wear this red?

The Scarlet Season is a series of posts showcasing and featuring my favorite shades of red lips–from glosses to lipsticks that runs through December 2009. You can sure expect to see a lot of red this holiday season!

    this is way more wearable to me than the lipstick. (but then again i am more of a gloss girl anyway) i might actually get this one. thanks for the pic!

    I loooove Russian Red lip glass!!! This is the only red I can wear that doesn’t make me look…cheap :/

    Its classic! I need to get the the Lipstick form!

    That red looks fantastic on you!

    I am just too jealous of your lip bow. :)

    That looks gorgeous! I have been interested in this gloss for a while, but am hesitant because I am afraid it will fade unevenly on the lips. 4 hours is great lasting power – but does the pigementation fade evenly?

    This is very pretty and very wearable on a daily basis. It makes your lips look like glazed maraschino cherries!

    I wear this over top on the RR lipstick. Gives the lipstick a bit of shine and definitely makes a bold statement.

    I’ve owned this lip glass for the last 5 years and it’s really surprising to see how the colors come right back around. I don’t even need to rush out and get a new one as I hardly ever wear it…will be wearing it for the season tho:)

    Another lipglass must have! Will get it asap. lol

    I don’t have any red glosses, and this one looks super fun!

    I love this lipglass. I usually wear it over Russian Red lipstick. :)

    I bought this one a few weeks ago and I love it.
    It’s incredible how much redder it looks on my lips, though, but I have noticed that about other lipsticks/glosses as well. It must be because my lips are very pigmented.

  13. Sooo gorgeous! I’m definitely getting this.

  14. Wow, that’s pretty impressive for a gloss! O_O;

  15. Hoya Girl

    I LOVE Russian Red lipstick, but unfortunately I don’t get the chance to wear it that often. :( The gloss, however, is just as beautiful and more wearable!! Must. Have. (*wallet starts crying*) I agree with amy when I say I love this series!! Thanks Christine :)
