Brave Red || MAC Monday's

Hellooo lovelies,

 It's another lipstick for today's MAC Monday (I will switch it up soon I promise) since I have a fair few of them and they are my all time favourite MAC product. It is of course a cremesheen formula because I much prefer creamier lips than matte lipsticks.

This product is one of MAC's lesser talked about lipsticks and I think it's because Russian Red, Ruby Woo and Lady Danger are the red lipsticks that instantly pop into your head when you think of red lipsticks from MAC. The reason I went for Brave Red over all other red lipsticks is it is your classic bright red and it wasn't at all drying which I found Russian Red to be because it is a matte formula. I had the same issue with Ruby Woo aswell so the best option for me was to pick a red shade from the cremesheen range. So if you suffer from dry lips or even just prefer cremesheen formulas like me then I'd totally recommend looking at this lipstick for a creamier red.

 I don't actually wear this much purely because when I'm going for an out there lip I always reach for more pink shades because that's my favourite colour (incase you've magically managed to miss that). However, after taking the swatch pictures for this post I'm going to make a conscious effort to try and wear it more as it is a pretty colour!

 It's really long lasting as it is but if I want it to last extremely long I use MAC's cherry lip liner underneath first. I would recommend using a lip liner underneath a red lipstick anyway just to prevent any bleeding cause lets be honest ladies that's never a good look is it!

Have you tried Brave Red?

Lots of Love,


  1. What a beautiful red! xx

    1. It is a nice one isn't it! It often gets forgotten about because of MAC's more well known reds! xxx
