Makeup Look with MAC Russian Red Lipstick

I LOVE ME SOME REDS … and was in hunt for THE perfect RED for me. I searched so much and not to deny I even bought a few but wasn’t satisfied with the results. ( Please don’t ask what all reds I have, I would be embarrassed). So my hunt was still on in full swing and I was going up and down on internet hoping to find my perfect red.

After so called debating over which red lipstick to buy, I finally got my hands on MAC RUSSIAN RED Lipstick.And you know, that was one of the luckiest day in my life because I bought 5 MAC lipsticks at one go. Oohhhh! I was so happy and telling hubby that we will do this kind of shopping spree every time. He was like ??? Isn’t she still satisfied ? He is still in those thoughts …






And then we came home and all the modeling started with trying the lipsticks I bought and from all the five this one stood at No 1 .To tell you my hubby loves Red lipstick on me more then I do … I SWEAR!

Hubby remembered this so well , if by chance I wore some other red he would say is this “RUSSIAN RED” and sometimes I had to say yes janu see how perfect you are ( to make him feel proud, of course).

And you know Russian Red, by far, is THE BEST MATTE RED LIPSTICK you could ever imagine. I had quite a few reds in my arsenel but if I  have a occasion I wear this with golden eye makeup.

If you really wan to want only red buy this ,because you also know you wont be able to use red lipsticks all the time. So be patient and buy this one , it’s one of the most moisturizing matte lipstick. There are a few more choices but hmmmmm … So here goes my makeup or MAC up in this pic – MAC Russian Red Lipstick MAC Russian Red Lipstick
