MAC Russian Red

‘When you want something, the universe conspires to bring it to you’. I believe in it. Atleast in this case. 
This is how it happened.

Since I never dared to wear a bright shade, I got a sample of MAC Russian Red from ‘The Body Needs’ to see how it looked on me. But what I liked more was the natural colour it gave my lips when applied slightly. I saved it preciously because it was like my holy grail lipstick. I wanted to buy a REAL RUSSIAN RED but I kept hesitating (dunno why. Maybe the price? or I’m lazy? 0-o ).

 Okay, here comes the conspiracy. I opened the tiny stick of sample in a restroom and the sample fell directly into the sink hole. Like exactly through the center of the hole (mother of conspiracies! ). And I stood there in front of the mirror trying to figure out what happened. 
Well, it is gone and that’s how I bought another one (I feel proud now).

With all the rave reviews and hype, it doesn’t need much introduction. It is THE Red with blue undertones which suits nearly all skin tones. I love the texture which is matte yet it doesn’t dry out the lips. It doesn’t bleed and stays on for a pretty long time. It is well-pigmented and gives a good coverage. It doesn’t transfer much and no need to reapply.

I love how it brightens up my face when I dab a little bit for that natural look.

I love the classic/vintage look it gives. It looks very flattering on my dusky Indian skin tone.

Oh! Did I say? This is how I treated myself on Valentine’s day ๐Ÿ™‚

This is an absolute love for me. Do you own one? (If not run and get one ๐Ÿ˜› ). 
And do share the conspiracies ๐Ÿ˜‰
Take care
Shy
