Riri Hearts MAC Fall Lipsticks

The Riri Hearts MAC Fall Collection features four shades of limited edition lipstick with a repromote of cult favorite shade, Riri Woo. The Riri Hearts MAC Fall Lipstick ($16.50) shades come in a rather cool rose gold metallic tube featuring Rihanna’s signature. Even if you aren’t a fan of Rihanna I think the packaging is rather delightful!

Let’s take a look at Riri Woo.

Riri Hearts MAC Fall Lipstick

MAC Riri Woo Lipstick will be available in the special Riri Hearts MAC Fall packaging for a limited time starting September 26th at MAC stores, online at on September 30th, and at all other locations as of October 3rd.

MAC Riri Woo Lipstick is typically $15 but with the LE packaging you are shelling an extra $1.50.

Riri Hearts MAC Fall Lipstick 7

I tend to look my best in warmer shades of red and I feel a little clowny in shades like Ruby Woo but there isn’t any double it’s a highly pigmented, opaque shade of red.

The shade is quite dry so it gives that classic matte Hollywood lip look. It tends to migrate everywhere and tugs a bit during application so I suggest a balm under it and a liner around your lips to keep it in place.

I can completely understand why fans love this shade so much because it truly is a brilliant matte shade of red.

However, I look like a clown sporting it unfortunately 🙂

Will you be hauling it?

Or maybe you already own it from the prior release earlier this Summer?

Love it?

Leave it?

Do share!

    I think this looks fabulous on you! I think it looks great with your skin tone. 🙂

  • Joanna

    You’re definitely rocking the lipstick! I am in awe with the packaging…that’s one of the reason I held back on ordering Riri Woo. Let’s cross fingers that I land me a tube or two 🙂

  • Irene

    I think it looks wonderful on you! I find that using a lip liner to create a very defined edge with cooler toned reds works best to avoid the clownish look, especially for people (like me!) with thinner lips. I always cheat a little and overdraw my natural lip line to enhance 😀

  • Gabriella

    Girl. You’re cray if you think you look anything remotely similar to a clown LOL absolutely stunning.

  • kitch

      aw thanks kitch! it’s a really lovely shade but I’m not totally comfortable in it ;-D

  • lisa

    i totally should buy it but i feel awkward in a bright red too – i tend to go for a dark berry color instead – for fear of feeling clown-like, but, i must say Muse, you do rock this color! are you going to give us previews of the other three new RiRi Mac lipsticks?

    • the Muse

      aw thanks lisa! I only have this one but planning on grabbing the orange one it looks lovely ;D
