I know MAC RiRi Woo Lipstick is sold out online but don’t panic it’ll be back in June which is why I decided review and swatch it. I promise I’m not teasing you with this review!
MAC RiRi Woo Lipstick is a remix of MAC’s classic, cult favorite shade Ruby Woo by Rihanna herself.
Take a peek!
MAC RiRi Woo Lipstick ($15) is a matte cool red. I was actually hoping that RiRi Woo would be less cooler than Ruby Woo as I can wear warmer reds easily but not so much cooler ones.
Unfortunately, from my experience it appears RiRi Woo is basically identical to Ruby Woo just what a slightly different finish. I think it’s more of a fan thing than an actual beauty junkie thing. Another words if you love Rihanna it’s probably something you’ll want to own. But if you’re a more logical beauty junkie that wanted a unique shade of red, well, you won’t need it because if you already own Ruby Woo it seems senseless to bother unless you really want the matte finish of RiRi Woo.
I personally don’t like matte finishes and this feels particularly dry to me. It migrates all over the damn place and tugs during application and looks uneven on my lips due to this. I feel like Ronald Mcdonald with it on to be honest…I just don’t do shades of red like this very well.
The only special thing about it is Rihanna’s signature is wrapped around the lipstick itself but MAC’s standard black packaging stays the same here.
It’s $15 and will relaunch again shortly if you are lemming.
Is it on your list?
