|MAC Russian Red and GOSH Kiss|
I was shopping my stash the other day and came across my GOSH Cosmetics Soft n' Shine Lip Balm in Kiss and instantly wondered would it be a good dupe for Russian Red.
In the tube, Russian Red looks to be a smidge darker. However, upon swatching you can see that they are actually very closely related. Kiss has maybe got a tiny but more of a blue undertone but, other than that it could definitely be considered an affordable dupe for Russian Red, coming it at around €8 instead of €18. Another positive for Kiss is that it is, in fact, a lip balm as opposed to Russian Red which is a matte lipstick and thus, very drying.
