I’ve been trying to decide which type of red lipstick looks best. Red Mac lipstick to be specific.
I’ve been trialling a more orange based red – Lady Danger alongside a blue based red -Russian red.

So a little info about me, I’m relatively fair of complexion. To give you an insight I’m a NC20 shade in Mac foundation. I have yellow/olive skin undertones. I have blonde hair and brown eyes so I’m a bit of a mix of fair and dark. Go figure!
The shades swatched on my arm: Left – Russian Red, right – Lady danger
I think I prefer Russian Red. I think it suits me better which is against make up maths! Blue reds suit pink undertones not yellow ones – what is this witchcraft? Russian red is a slightly more velvety vampy shade and matches my complexion but adds a bit of drama.
Both are CLASSIC Mac shades. What’s your favourite red Mac shade?
I’m slowly getting a little bit braver so am sort of showing my face in these photos:

Which shade is do you think is best? Do you agree on the Russian red front?
