With Spring approaching (and with the kick start of my mac collection with Myth) I wanted to treat myself and my make up bag to a slightly brighter red. I wanted a shade with a blue tone to enhance the shade of my pearly
The shade is a lovely red which isnt too over powering but still lifts and adds a gorgeous pop of colour to yo face. It is a lovely texture but I found was a teeny tiny bit drying as it is a matte finish; I would recommend using lip scrub prior to wearing Russian Red as well as using a clear lip balm to ensure it glides on nice and smooth, no one wants to see your flaky bits girlfriend!
It lasts ages so is definitely worth its £15.00 price tag, one application lasted all day with eating and drinking. I must admit it did fade a little but the colour was still pretty enough without having to reapply more product.
I really like the look with a simple eye, here I used neutral shades from my Naked 2 palette with a slick of black eyeliner. This is my usual every day make up just with a little twist from the lippy. I feel this jazzed up my usual day time face without feeling too 'OTT' and felt confident for someone who usually sticks to pale colours during the day.
