The Underdog!

Hey Beauts,

When hearing about MAC red lipsticks Russian Red and Ruby Woo are shouted about here, there and everywhere! But one lipstick I have never once heard being spoken about is Brave Red - My most favourite MAC lipstick. Let me tell you why...

As I am sure you can see from the above images, I have used this lipstick to nearly the end of it's life. The colour is fantastic. Who doesn't love a great red? The pigmentation is beautiful, but comes off a little lighter than in the tube (which I appreciate) and leaves my teeth looking really white. The formula is a cremesheen and so packs a lot of moisture. Never once has it left my lips feeling dry and chapped, It even leaves my lips looking slightly glossy and healthy. However because of the moisture filled properties, it isn't the best at staying put - especially after eating a meal.

At £15.50 MAC lipsticks are getting more and more expensive, but as soon as I get to a MAC counter, I will most definatly be repurchasing this, just to have a back-up. Have you ever tried Brave Red? Which is your favourite MAC red? Or do you have another brand red lipstick that you're in love with? I would love to know so leave a comment down below letting me know!

  7. Ruby Woo is my personal favourite, but as a lover of creme sheen and moisturising lipsticks maybe I'll be converted!!x
