This is a blue-based red which makes your teeth look whiter, it's also perfectly dark but not to the extent that it washes me out, being pale it's hard to wear dark lipstick without channelling Morticia Adams so this is perfect for me!
It's not an everyday lipstick (for me anyway) I am a huge fan of red lips but I tend to save such glam make up looks for going out, it's unlikely (but not unheard of) that you'll see me out shopping rockin' a red lip. Russian Red however is such a beautiful, stand out colour that you can put it on a bare face with a tiny bit of mascara and still look great, I'm a big believer in eyes OR lips and tend to just put on a little mascara when wearing brighter or more daring colours.
It gives a lovely Old Hollywood glamour feel, a look I love!
What's your HG red?
