MAC Russian Red Lipstick Review

Hello Everyone,
So for my first review back I thought I would do a review on Russian Red by MAC. Generally speaking I think some MAC products are worth the money and other times I think its rather a waste.

Now I am a big lover of Red lipstick, so I am very picky when it comes to a good red lippy. I found Russian red really easy to apply and very beautifully Matte. The lipstick is gorgeous on but it's staying power on the other hand is questionable. I found that this lipstick did not have the staying power that it should have for the price you pay for it, at a steep £15 I feel it fell a bit short. While I loved the colour and the Matte-ness of the Lipstick I felt it did not live up to its price tag. 

PROS: Matte, easy to apply, very pigmented, and well its MAC.
CONS: Pricey, and does not stay as well as other cheaper lipsticks.

Overall, I like this lipstick but I don't think I would repurchase it unless the price was lower because I don't think its worth its hefty price tag. Have you tried MAC lipsticks? Which is your favourite?
