|Left : MAC Russian Red || Right: Bobbi Brown Red carpet|
One is the infamous Russian red from MAC and the other is the gorgeous Red Carpet from Bobbi Brown. Both are beautiful and very richly pigmented matte lipsticks. Russian Red is slightly, very slightly deeper than Red Carpet which is more of a bright tomato red. I find that the MAC one is slightly more drying on the lips, but nothing that cannot be fixed with a good lip balm underneath! On the other hand, Red Carpet has a creamy formula and is hence not drying at all. It also feels very light on the lips! This was my first lipstick from Bobbi Brown, and I am impressed to say the least!
Both are similar, yet so different. I like wearing Russian red mostly during evenings and Red carpet is reserved for day time wear (If I am feeling so bold!). But yes, officially my RED obsession has started. I cant wait to see how many more red lipsticks will become mine in the near future. I already have another one in mind. Wait.. what did you say? NARS Cruella? My wallet just screamed NO ;)
What are your favorite Red lipsticks?
