Hi! For awhile now, I have been searching for a really nice matte red lip for the fall. I really don’t often buy a bright red lip, and when I have in the past, I’ve found that some have more of an orange hue rather than that bold and rich red. The MAC brand undeniably makes some beautiful lipstick shades, so I went on the hunt to find a less expensive brand with comparable color to MAC’s most popular red lipstick.
NYX’s “Perfect Red” is such a great dupe for MAC’s “Russian Red”! I cannot describe how amazing this color is. It goes on so smoothy, and it has pretty good staying power as well. I had this on the other day, and decided I didn’t want to go to class wearing such a loud lipstick, so I went to take it off to put on a more nude color and I actually had to really wipe my lips to get this stuff off (which is great)! Highly recommend guys!
Also, apparently in The Devil Wears Prada, Anne Hathaway actually wore MAC’s Russian Red in one particular scene so I have a picture of that linked here just in case you wanted to compare the dupe for yourself (:
I hope this was helpful and thanks for visiting my blog!
