    Comments about MAC Lipstick Matte:

    Russian Red is probably my favorite red lipstick of all time, and i have probably 30 rec lipsticks. It is perfect; even application, long lasting, wears down evenly, not drying... the shade is a perfect blue based red. I have a bunch of MAC lipsticks, and the quality on them is fantastic, BUT Ruby Woo is just awful. I tried it several different ways, and it is vey hard to apply and instantly patches up on me. If I rub my lips together, the color separates and I'm left with a huge bald patch on my lip. I'm so confused, because everyone seems to love Ruby Woo for the most part, but my Lord, it did not work for me. I tried layer upon layer and the same thing occurred. Not up to MAC standards imo.

    Nice

    Comments about MAC Lipstick Matte:

    The cosistency and formula are spot on. I purchased Russian Red and Velvet Teddy when they were half off and since I had only tried Mac lip liners and not lipsticks as of yet. Beautiful but the Velvet Teddy lipstick was a bit grey on me. I haven't worn them more than once but keeping them around for the perfect opportunity.

    Comments about MAC Lipstick Matte:

    The customer service lady told me on the phone it's a red tone. No it's not. I like it I don't love it. But I am disabled and not able to drive. So I had to go on her word that it's a beautiful color. It's okay. But I expected better from Mac. I want it more color in my lipstick.

      New fav lip product!

      By Msssss

      from IL

      Comments about MAC Lipstick Matte:

      i hate liquid lipsticks because of how dry they make my lips so i thought i'd try buying more original lipsticks and try Mac as a brand for the first time and i fell in love with their matte lipsticks! they're so creamy and soft, obviously not as long wearing as a liquid lipstick but i don't mind reapplying once or twice through the day, will be buying more for sure!

        Comments about MAC Lipstick Matte:

        I saw a YouTube list this shade as one of their favorite nude lip colors. I'm always looking for something that stands out yet can blend in when worn in the right environments. This nude lippie gives the right balance of rose and brown to make your lips look amazing.
