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.
