Is it better to buy a full size lipstick or a mini version of it when you're trying the shade for the first time?

I want to buy a MAC Russian Red lipstick. I've heard so much about it and apparently it suits most skintones. I'm still unsure whether to go with a full size lipstick or the mini version though.

Mini is good for trying out shades but if there's a chance this particular shade suits more complexions, wouldn't it be better to go with the full large version?
