MAC RUBY WOO LIPSTICK REVIEW






I've been lusting after this lipstick for what seems like forever. I have so many of MAC's nude lipsticks and I thought that instead of buying yet another nude I would branch into the world of the red lip. When looking at the different red offerings MAC has to offer I was drawn to Ruby Woo. Ruby Woo is one of those classic lipstick shades that is always associated with MAC. Now that my hair is slightly blonder I love wearing red on my lips, although red looks great with the majority of hair colours theres something about blonde hair and red lipstick that just looks so gorgeous together.

Ruby Woo has a retro matte formula which is definitely the most matte formula I have ever tried. A lot of people don't get along with MAC's matte formulas which is understandable as it has an extremely waxy formula and tends to dry out the lips quite a bit but personally I love them. Yes, there is the constant urge to lick your lips but as the formula is matte it means the lasting power of this lipstick really is incredible and the beautiful colour makes it worth it! I'm really happy I picked this shade up and it will be stable in my makeup routine for a very long while.

I'm thinking of picking up Russian Red when I'm next in MAC which is slightly less matte and also a little darker than Ruby Roo, which I think will look really gorgeous in the winter months.

  1. This looks amazing, I always think Ruby Woo and Russian Red look so striking and I'm tempted to pick them up, but red lipstick really doesn't suit me :( xx

    1. They are both so striking! That sucks, I never used to think it suited me as I'm usually a nude lip kinda girl but I am now a red lip convert :) xx
