Every single girl who knows her make-up vouches for the fact that any make-up collection is incomplete without MAC products. So for my first ever purchase from MAC, I wanted to buy a product which can never go wrong. Though I am a complete neutral girl on weekdays, I love to sport a bright lip on weekends and any functions or weddings. Let’s admit it; you will not go with a nude lip to a wedding! A nude lip is only for occasions when you boss is breathing down your neck and the any lip colour darker than nude may just cost you your job! And work in a government organization like me and you will be surprised at how swiftly people may notice you lip colour and go all”hawww”! Any ways, more on that later.
Mac describes retro matte ruby woo as Vivid bluish-red (Matte)
This lipstick scores bingo on the shade and its ability to turn heads. The shade is an absolute matte ruby colour as the name says. The texture is not the best you will come across since it’s a matte lipstick and hence very drying. Put some balm 5-10 minutes before applying this and your life will be much easier. Once applied, it’s opaque to full coverage and pigmented lips will love this. The staying power is commendable since it’s both MAC and MATTE and this will not leave your side even if you come back home after eating a full buffet! It does not accentuate fine lines and there is no tugging or pulling on lips if you apply a lip balm underneath. The smell is vanilla like all MAC lipsticks and this shade despite being the hottest selling shade comes in a regular black packaging. This is a shade which I don’t think will ever see a dupe in any drug store brands and you will have to see it to believe it! This shade made MAC what it is today and every girl across all boundaries, skin tones, ages will rock this colour! You just need some confidence.
Why you should buy MAC Ruby woo:-
If a stunning red matte lip is your idea of looking beautiful!
If you want your lipstick to last longer than your day!
If you are just a huge fan of MAC and like me think that you NEED to own this shade which is a cult favorite!
If you think weddings are more about you than the bride herself!
If you like me believe that women of all ages and ethnicities look beautiful in a red lip.
Why you should not buy MAC Ruby woo:-
If you are still not ready to shell out 1190 for a lip colour!
If you have dry lips…. but nothing in this world that Vaseline can’t repair!
If you for sure know that you will never wear something so bright! If yes, join the club in which I was till a few months ago!
Dupes: – There are no exact dupes of this particular shade of MAC. If the colour is the same, it’s not matte. If its matte, the colour differs. Riri woo is similar but is a bit bright and neon-ish compared to Ruby Woo. Bourjois lip pencil #20 in rouge soyeux is comparable. Maybelline 14 hour super stay lipsticks in timeless crimson, enduring ruby and continuous cranberry are matte and red so you can try those if you want a matte red lipstick!
Highly recommended! This lipstick is addictive!
