Russian RedFrom MAC main collection. This is a matte lipstick. Its a blue toned red. Now I don't think you need Ruby Woo and Russian Red as they are quite similar, but if your an addict like me you will want it.
Brave RedFrom MAC's main collection. This is a creamsheen finish. It's super glossy on the lips and very comfortable to wear. It's described as a bright warm red colour.
Ruby WooThis is one of MAC's most famous lipsticks. From the main collection it's a classic red and a must have in every girls makeup collection. It's a retro matte and is really drying on the lips and quite hard to apply. But I assure you, it will not budge all day once you apply it.
Lady DangerMy favourite MAC lipstick. Again from the main collection. Its an orange red that suits all skin tones. It's a matte finish. This colour look fab when you have a tan, but even the palest can pull this one off.
CockneyThis was my first MAC red lipstick. It's a lustre finish and quite easily to pull off everyday. There isn't as much lasting in the lustre finishes but they are super moisturising on the lips. It's an orange red with a slight hint of gold reflects through it. Again this is in the main collection.
From Left to Right: Russian Red, Brave Red, Ruby Woo, Lady Danger, Cockney.

So here is a couple of tips for wearing red lipsticks
- Wear simple eye makeup and let the lips stand out
- Check that there is no lipstick on your teeth after you apply
- Use a lip pencil to match the colouring of your lipstick
- Apply with a lip brush and use concealer to clean up the edges.
- Try and pick the tone of your red lipstick to suit your skin tone, warm or cool.
