The two lipsticks are not just colorwise very similar, they also have the same matte finish. In my opinion Russian Red feels a little more dry on the lips compared to Daring Ruby, which is surprisingly creamy, especially in the beginning. In contrast does Russian Red last a little longer on the lips (still both shades last easily 3 hours). But I got to say… Russian Red and Daring Ruby are a lot alike!!! When it comes to the price MAC’s Russian Red is however about 20.50 Euro/28 Fr., while Daring Ruby costs about 6.50 Euro/17 Fr.
What do you think? Is Maybellines «970 Daring Ruby» an adequate MACs Russian Red Dupe?
