MAC Ruby Woo Retro Matte Lipstick
Ruby Woo is my absolute favorite Red Mac Lipstick. I recently said in my '30 before 30' challenge post that I would like to find my 'signature scent and lipstick'. I think Ruby Woo is a definitely a contender. This is the second Ruby Woo I have owned, and I will continue to repurchase this as long as MAC keep making it.
Is a highly pigmented bright red color with blue tones. It is very vivid and very matte - which I personally prefer - as would anyone else who prefers a matte lip. It is a perfect 'standout in the crowd lipstick' .
Yes the packaging is a bit underwhelming compared to some MAC designs but because the product is that beautiful - I am happy with the sturdy packaging - less chances of damage!
RiRi Woo Retro Matte Lipstick- Yes I am one of those mad fans that snapped this little gem up when It was first launched - I actually paid a bit too much for it - I got it on EBay, I couldn't resist. I kind of wish I had more patience but I had polished off a bottle of red wine, on the Saturday night, I claim diminished responsibility.
I was drawn to RiRi Woo because it was compared to Ruby Woo and in actual fact there aren't many differences between them. RiRi is slightly brighter and a little pinker than Ruby but just as beautiful - with its cool blue undertones. I think it is gorgeous. Rihanna herself said that she modeled the shade on Ruby Woo because it is a personal favorite.
Love her or loathe her you cannot argue that Rihanna has great taste in lipstick.
I have to admit though for a Limited Edition piece, the packaging should have been fancier - a little bit prettier like the Nikki or Gaga lipsticks. I do however like the RiRi embossed signature on the lipstick itself.
As far as I'm aware RiRi Woo is currently unavailable to buy from MAC however, they are due to launch the next phase of the Rihanna brand in June and RiRi Woo will be available to buy then again too.
However, if you are a Ruby Woo lover like me you can buy it from MAC here for £14.00
What is your favourite? What do you make of Riri Woo?
