MAC ruby woo lipstick

MAC Ruby Woo - £14

MAC Ruby Woo is a blue toned red lipstick with a matte finish. My sister picked this up for me as a birthday present, I left her to choose as I'm way too indecisive & I'm so happy with her selection! I am forever wearing either dark or red lips so this is a great colour to add to my collection as I know I'll get a lot of wear from it. As Ruby Woo is from the matte range I was a little worried I'd struggle to apply it as my lips aren't in the best of conditions! However I make sure I use my LUSH popcorn lip scrub & apply lip balm before application which makes life a bit easier! Although it's not the easiest lipstick to use, the colour pay off & wear time really makes up for it, I don't find myself having to touch up as often as I do with others. I definitely can see this becoming my go to red lipstick, as it's the perfect shade!

What do you think of the matte formula? Have you tried MAC's Ruby Woo before?

  1. Mac lipsticks are my absolute favourite! I actually really like this colour!


  2. I've not tried this colour but I'd love to, I need a good red in my life! xo

  3. I got this for Christmas and I think it'll definitely be my go-to red too! :) xxx

  4. This looks so beautiful, I have only tried the amplified finish x

  5. I did love matte lipsticks from MAC, especially Please Me but I've recently been opting for creme sheen/lustre formulas. Ruby Woo is absolutely gorgeous and is definitely one that I'd consider adding to my collection of 20 MAC lipsticks but I'm supposed to not buy any more! I'm currently having a MAC lipstick/eyeshadow giveaway on my blog but that's going to end badly because it means that I'll be going to buy more for myself!

  6. I've got this lipstick and I have seen it getting mixed reviews. Personally I think it's my favourite lipstick! It's a bold red colour with such a matte finish that it reminds me of cover girl shoots, it's just so classic. However I do worry about my lips getting dry, with the right care as you said its not a problem, and you're right the wear time is great! I love also not worrying that I might of accidentally smudged it in my face with my hand haha!

  7. I have to moisturise and use a lip liner I think it's called Cherry from MAC and then this is perfect, I absolutely love the colour xxx

  8. I wish I had the guts to wear red lips more often! I can never seem to get away with it during the day. This looks like such a gorgeous, classic red! xx

  9. I have this and I absolutely adore the colour. The only thing is that I can't just pop it on as I'm about to run out the door-because of the texture I have to scrub my lips, then put on some balm...then wait til that's sunk in nicely, and then finally I can apply! It's therefore only used on night's out etc where I'm doing a proper "face" as I don't have the time in my rushed morning routine.

  10. Ruby Woo is possibly my favourite classic red from the MAC selection. It's perfect in every way and is quite forgiving on slightly chapped lips. Best birthday present!

    1. It really is forgiving on chapped lips, considering the matte formula! (:
