MAC - Ruby woo (Matte)

Hello everybody! I hope you guys have all had a lovely Christmas and now well rested from the festive break. I personally had a stressful December with study commitments and deadlines therefore my blog has been pretty neglected as a result. I did manage to pick up some lovely new makeup to try out and i finally caved in and bought the MAC Rubywoo which I have wanted for absolutely ages since it has been described as the perfect red lipstick and has received of great reviews too.

This is a matte formulation lipstick therefore i was quite worried at first because my lips has a tendency to be very dry and chapped therefore i prepped my lips well before applying this lipstick. I used a Real techniques lip-brush in order to apply this more precisely to give the perfect shape. The formula is very nice and although it is a matte lipstick, my lips were not horrendously dried up after a few hours of wear. The red shade compliments my skin-tone very well making it appear whiter and i love the way that it makes my teeth whiter! The longevity of this lipstick is outstanding with no signs of bleeding even after several hours of wear. The colour tends to fade after eating and drinking but it doesn't seem to transfer onto the teeth which is a good thing because i find that other more moisturising dark lipsticks gets onto my teeth easily.

I think this is a great all-rounder matte red lipstick that every girl should own because it can instantly glam up your outfit or make your make-up look more sophisticated. I wish that i found this lipstick sooner because i really adore the consistency and longevity of it. I recommend this lipstick to you guys and i am planning to invest in similar red shades such as Russian Red.

What is your favourite MAC lipstick?

    I only own one MAC lippie and sadly it's kinda sheer..but I need to have more of a play about with it still, would love to try out some brighter shades and also some more nudes/neutral shades

  12. Ruby Woo and Russian Red have been on my lipstick radar for so long! I was tempted to pick up Russian Red when I was in the States in September 2012 but I figured I wouldn't ever wear it, so I decided against it. I'm now leaning more towards Ruby Woo if I were to buy one of the two. It's just so flattering and really makes your teeth look super white :)
