MAC has some quite well known red lipsticks. But what’s the difference and which one will suit me. Here’s a break down into MAC’s best red lipsticks.
1. Russian Red
It’s no surprise that Russian Red is the top selling Red Lipstick from MAC. The color was launched in the 80’s and in 1986 Madonna proclaimed it being her favorite red lipstick making it a runway hit. There’s been no turning back since then.
Color: Intense Bluish Red
2. Ruby Woo
Ruby Woo is a retro matte red lipstick with a blue undertone. The lipstick is a very strong red and has an extremely dry matte texture. It’s a kind of look me type of red.
Color: Blue Red
Texture: Very matte
Intensity: Very strong
3. Lady Danger
Lady danger is a red with a bright coral undertone. It’s an old Hollywood red, which is bond to get attention. It’s super bright and super sexy.
Color: Vivid Bright Coral Red
4. MAC Red
MAC Red is a true-blue based red that makes you stand out from the crowd. It whitens the teeth, it looks good an almost any skin tone from very fair to deep dark skin tones. It’s definitely a bold, traffic stopping red.
Color: Vivid Bright Bluish Red
Texture: Satin (semi-matte)
5. Lady Bug
Lady Bug is a play it safe, beginners red. It has a sheer glossy finish giving it a softer tone. It was my first red from MAC.
Color: Yellow tomato
Chilli is a classic. It’s perfect if you want a red without any blue undertones. It’s a warm orangy red, which is not as strong as some of the other reds on this list. A pretty autumn red, great for day or evening.
Color: Brown-Orange Red
7. Viva Glam 1
In 1994, Mac introduced Viva Glam 1 which was an outspoken deep red hue that was universal in appeal and glamour. After Russian Red, Viva Glam 1 is on the top 3 lists of best selling reds from MAC. It’s a totally retro red but is such an elegant and timeless color. Did I mention that every cent of Viva Glam lipsticks goes to helping those affected with HIV/AIDS? Great lipstick, good cause
Color: Intense Brownish Blue-Red
Diva is a very dark reddish burgundy shade. In my opinion it suits all skin tones, but you must try it on before you buy it to make sure your comfortable enough to wear it.
Color: Intense Reddish Burgundy
Dubonnet is a brick red color with a beautiful brown undertone. It’s not cool so it gives the skin beautiful warmth. It’s a deeper shade of red that has hints of brown, but still definetly looks red. Dubonnet is Gwen Stefani’s most purchased lipstick from MAC.
Color: Deepen Claret
Texture: Amplified Cream
