I'm a huge fan of old hollywood glamour. It was all about gorgeous hair, red lips and tonnes of confidence. The key part of that look is the red lipstick and another one has been added to my collection. I believe that everyone should have at least one red lipstick that they love. There is always a red shade that will suit you! I remember the first time I wore a red lipstick, I was terrified that everyone would look at me but then my confidence grew in wearing it. I actually think my confidence grew because I was wearing it. I'm now never without a red shade in my bag.

Let me introduce you to my new best buddy. MAC Russian Red.

Russian Red is a cool toned lipstick but don't be fooled when people say that you must wear certain shades depending on whether your skin is cool or warm. I have cool undertones to my skin but I also wear colours that are said to suit warm tones. It is just guidance so don't let that stop you finding your perfect lipstick.

I find Russian Red quite a deep, classic red which makes it very old Hollywood. It's matte finish makes this lipstick look beautifully sophisticated and is surprisingly long lasting. I haven't felt that my lips have dried out wearing this which makes me love this even more as I find it hit and miss with some shades. Russian red is such a classic shade that it can be worn for a night out or even if you're just popping to the shops. What's wrong with adding a bit of glamour to your food shop? Russian Red retails at £15.50, although it can be expensive MAC lipstick are always worth the money, plus they last for ages.

Im going to have to reevaluate my top five lipsticks post as this definitely joins Lady Danger up there at the top. If you would like to read my Lady Danger review click here. I can definitely see this being another staple in my makeup bag.
