M.A.C. has the most amazing selection of lipstick colors. I’m going to admit right now that I have never bought lipstick before so the idea of starting off with a red lipstick scared me. There is always a first for everything though and if I’m going to start something, I will start it off with a bang. I think it’s best, when getting your first lipstick, to get a matte one just because it’s less likely to smudge. I went with M.A.C.’s Russian Red for this reason. I tried it out for two days and it rarely smudged or stained anything, aside from the occasional coffee mug, and guess what? It’s also only $15.00.
So lay a thin layer of lip balm , use The Russian Red and do what you do best.
