…………….deals with everything feminine, make up and beauty being an integral part

I wanted to do this post since long, and today, my kid has been very good and has slept over two hours in the afternoon enabling me to write this post for you all :). These two shades are the most sought after reds from MAC and I suggest every woman should own at least one of these. To say a few words about the shades-

Russian Red: It belongs to the matte finish range of MAC lipsticks and it a blue based red that should suit a wide range of skin tones. It is more opaque than “ruby woo” and easier to carry and wear. I have reviewed it HERE .

Ruby Woo: A vivid tomato red that belongs to the retro matte range of MAC lipsticks. A stark matte finish that feels light on lips and an instant pick me up. This was my first MAC and my favorite red lipstick. I have reviewed it HERE . This is lighter than “russian red” and needs some effort to apply. It is best worn over a red lip liner and applied with a lip brush.

Many people have asked me to do a comparison post of these two lipsticks. I have put in my best to show you the difference in textures and color. Hope you like my effort. I have only mascara and kohl on my eyes and MAC studio fix powder over Garnier BB cream and NYX “mocha” blush on face.
