Quote: "Russian Red" is the name of a popular shade, especially of the MAC Cosmetics brand. Yet, it's not about beauty or love at all. It's the colour of the blood of Ukrainians killed by Russia every day. It's a true colour of war that nobody should ever experience," the message reads. 

MAC Russian Red is a slightly cool-toned red shade with subtle blue undertones and a matte finish. This description of the shade can be found on many retail platforms. 

The hue, labelled as "Russian", resembles the classic "Hollywood" red.
