MAC Shop Runaway Red Lipstick: Review & Swatches


Runaway Red lipstick is a repromote, it originally came out in the MAC Me Over collection. Now it has been repromoted in the MAC Shop collection. The outer sleeve is special packaging and as I said in my MAC Shop Florida Cremeblend blush it looks like retro American washing powder boxes.

The lipstick is described as a 'rich red blue' and again MAC is spot on with this description. The colour is lovely deep red with blue undertones. The lipstick is a satin finish which I used to steer away from however, MAC seem to have reformulated their satin lipsticks as they seem to be a lot creamier and less drying than they previously were, which has got to be a bonus. I'd definitely recommend you thoroughly exfoliate your lips and apply some lip balm before applying this lipstick as it will show up any imperfections on the lips and can become drying over time.

I bought this colour as I don't have a red lipstick in my collection and even though I'll happily go out wearing colours such as Vegas Volt I've always shyed away from reds. I now need a lip pencil to go with this lipstick, does anyone have any suggestions?
