MAC recently came out with the much awaited Rihanna Collection and RiRi Woo lipstick was the first product to fly off the shelves from all the stores. I was surprised to spot one last piece and had to literally snatch it from the MUA before anyone does. Yes, I was that desperate and here I am as the proud owner of this gorgeous lipstick. Read on to know why it is overhyped.
Price: Rs. 1200.
Packaging: Classy, girly golden pink packaging that made me drool over the entire collection.
I have never been a fan of the Retro Matte Finish as Ruby Woo eventually became a hard crayon and my lips are too delicate to handle the dry lipstick. No doubt, the shade is gorgeous and is universally flattering.
It is super bold and I would not suggest you to shell out so much on it unless you really have the guts to carry it off.
It is a blue based red, bold and bright and is inspired from Rihanna’s favorite MAC lipstick Ruby Woo. Personally I feel Both Ruby Woo and Riri Woo are similar, though Riri Woo is more intense and more wearable. The finish is retro matte which means super matte.
I love wearing Red lipsticks in matte finish and RiRi Woo is no exception for the lovely clean matte finish. It was easy to apply and blend with a lip brush.
The lipstick stays put for the entire day, even survives a full meal and does not budge till you remove it. The only con is the drying texture which can be a total let down for those with dry lips. You definitely need to exfloiate an prep your lips with a balm.
It is amazingly pigmented and all you need is one good swipe for hot red lips.
Rating: 4/5 ( Gives me super dry lips at the end of the day) I have fallen for the shade.
Final Words: MAC RiRi Woo is a stunning blue based red that is great to wear any day when you are in the mood for those super bold lips. Definitely a keeper. The drying texture is a let down unless you know how to deal with it. I guess am still practicing. The packaging of the Riri collection is cute and unique. The collection has other lovely products like LipGloss and Lip Pencil so incase you could not grab this, you can try for those. BTW a lil birdie told me that there is one more Rihanna Fall collection launching soon. Hurry and save up pretties!
