My quest for the perfect red lipstick has been on for a while now and today I decided to finally pick a true red lippie.None of the sheer, tinted, glossy, glazy red business for me ,I wanted bold matte red, think hot Ferrari Red.
So I went on a swatch fest staring from Revlon Really Red to 9 red shades from Inglot (sorry cant remember all the numbers!), 2 from Elizabeth Arden and 7 red lippies from MAC (Russian Red, So chaud, Ramblas Red, Cockney,Dubonnet,Ruby Woo,Brave Red).
Finally I zeroed down on MAC Russian Red & Ruby Woo, Inglot Red lipstick number 408 & 176.
Lip swatches were an altogether different business, Russian Red (blue based matte red, extremely bright & highly pigmented) looked too bright for me.Inglot lippies well I was over the fence with the shades, so finally I decided on MAC Ruby Woo- an ultra dry matte,blue based retro red.
Ta da ,just when I thought my 2 hours of research was finally yielding result, the SA sprang up the surprise on me- "Sorry we are out of stock " Ugh all my glam Red lipstick dreams came crashing down, I rushed to the second MAC store in the nearby mall- dang again out of stock!
Guess I'll have to wait before I get my paws on this one.Here are the lip swatches.
Tell me if you think its a worthy buy or I should try some other matte red? Any reccos will be highly appreciated
