Lip Twinsies: Lipstick Rules and Glitter Geek Wear MAC Russian Red Lipstick + Chanel Fatale Lipgloss

Wearing MAC Russian Red Lipstick + Chanel Fatale Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss

I’m so excited to bring you this collaboration with Lipstick Rules!

When I Back-to-MAC’d for MAC Russian Red Lipstick ($17.50) a few weeks ago, I got inspired. I fell in love with its rich matte red colour, but I learned from the Fashion Sets collection that it looks so much more incredible lacquered with a lipgloss.  I also knew that there was no way in hell I will ever buy a MAC Lipglass ever again (so painfully sticky!), but I wanted to give this matchy-matchy trend a go.  I already had Chanel Fatale Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss ($37) in my lip product drawer, so I thought, why not layer the two?

Fatale is darker and warmer than Russian Red.  The two creates a true red that is slightly lighter and warmer than the infamous Chanel Dragon Rouge Allure Laque (far right swatch).

This summer, I’d wear this to glam up a bronzy eye and complexion.  I call it Hollywood Poolside Glam.  Dipping in the pool: not recommended.  Looking cute in a wide floppy hat sipping mojitos (with a straw): totally encouraged.

For the love of red lips, Michelle is also wearing this combo today over at Lipstick Rules. Check out her post here!  We encourage you to try out this lip combo if you have similar colours in your stash!  How would you wear it?

  • Ahalya

    Wow! You look so hot Arianne! I love this entire look from hair to makeup. You and Michelle really suit this colour combo. I think you guys should make the lip twinsies things a regular feature as I’m sure you’ve enabled each other to buy way more shades then just russian red and fatale 😉

    • Arianne

      Thanks Ahalya! Thanks for the feedback, too. We will talk about collaborating more often. :)

  • Sunny @ Mostly Sunny

    You two are just too darn glam!!! Love how you pair the combo with those bronzy eyes. Very retro, very sexy!

    • Arianne

      Thank you Sunny! You know, I only ever wear red lips with a cat eye, but this “challenge” has kind of pushed me out of my comfort zone. Had so much fun with this!

  • Donna Marie

    Omg how cute are you?!! Love that first pic! And how do I not own this lipstick? Thanks Arianne I think I’ll head over to MAC now! :)

    • Arianne

      Thanks Donna. I guess you could say I was feeling sassy with this lip combo on. 😉

      You need Russian Red, totally.

  • Soha

    Gorgeous look! You’re glowing, lady :). I’m not sure if you got my tweet yesterday because my app was acting all weird, but for your fresh summer face – do you use a powder to set the MAC Prep and Prime highlighter? I’m going nuts trying to find a way to not make my undereye concealer/highlighters crease in the lines around my eyes. Bah!

    • Arianne

      Thank you Soha. :)

  • Jamilla

    What a fabulous look!!

    • Arianne

      Thanks Jamilla. :) You should give it a try!

  • Perilously Pale

    HOT! HOT! HOT! Love this so much!

    • Arianne

      Thanks so much Christa! xo

  • Larie

    Eeeeee, you look so fabulous! I also LOVE your earrings – where are they from?

    I want to try this! I have no red lip gloss thingee, though. I has a sad :(

    • Arianne

      Thanks Larie! My earrings are from a random shop in Koreatown. I love them, too; they make this clinking sound as I move haha.

  • Tracy@BeautyReflections

    You look amazing!!! You have perfect lips-Trakkee wants! :)

    • Arianne

      Thanks Trakkee. 😀

  • Angela

    This is such a gorgeous red lip! Hollywood Poolside Glam indeed. Wish I had the courage to rock it as fiercely as you do!

    • Arianne

      Not even a matte red, Angela? Honestly this lip combo is pretty impractical unless all you’re doing is smiling and taking photos. 😉 But either lipstick or gloss on its own would be easy to wear. :)

  • Rae // theNotice

    Hrrngh. Girl, you look like you just walked straight out of a MAC Hey, Sailor! ad… only, more fabulous and significantly more happy. 😛 What a lip! /fans self

    • Arianne

      Hahaha it really does look like that, eh? :) Thanks Rae!

  • dani@callitbeauty

    HOLY CRAP, that is so sexy! I need that gloss in my life!

    • Arianne

      You really do Dani! Thanks!

    You are so gorgeous Geekz! I love everything about this look-including the shades up “oh there you are” pose 😉

    • Arianne

      Thank you! I was gonna say “Oh there you are, Benedict Cumberbatch. Hi.”

  • Alison M

    Hot-t-t-t! I’ve been looking for a new way to wear red this summer. Love it with the bronze eye!

  • Toya

    Umm, that’s all sorts of pretty!!! I have Russian Red and love it too, so now I just need to find a pretty lipgloss to pair it with :) You look stunning here Arianne (and I’m fairly certain you have the best hair ever!)

  • Shannon

    What a great, classic look :) That lip combo is amazingly pretty!
