MAC Runaway Red - Review, Photos, Swatches

What do I love about MAC Runaway Red? It's not the red that screams vintage and pin-up. It's not a bright, in-your-face red. It looks like a dark brown lipstick on the tube, but really, it's a medium dark blue-based red. A lot darker than MAC Russian Red. This lipstick has a satin finish.

When Worn 
This was taken around 5:00am, during my 8:30pm-5:30am shift.
I'm sorry for the sleepy eyes. >__<



PROS: It's not your usual red lipstick (bright, in-your-face red). This is darker than Russian Red, which for me is a daytime red lipstick. The finish is amazing. It's opaque, long wearing, and not drying.
CONS: A limited ed shade, but has been re-promoted just recently. A bit pricey.

VERDICT: 5 out of 5 CHILIS! I didn't expect loving this shade and finish. Although I love MAC Rebel (satin finish, too), I didn't think I'll love a red lipstick in this finish. Good thing it's darker so the subtle sheen is just perfect. A really great buy, in my own honest opinion. :)
