Beauty: Mac Ruby Woo Review

21 Aug

When I was younger I got the impression that all elegant ladies wore lipsticks, heels and trench coats. Hence I decided that when I got older and more mature I would get my first lipstick and it had to be red. I did get a red lipstick but not much maturity.

Mac ‘s ‘Ruby Woo’.This is one of those products that EVERY blogger , Tom, Dick and Harry has! I am a bit of a rebel and bore in mind that I already had one red lipstick from Clinique. It had a glossy finish so resembled a very highly pigmented lipgloss. A little bit of a cop out but a great starter for my 19 year old mind. I didn’t see the need to get another red lipstick.  However, after giving the lipstick away I was left with a void. Having looked high and low I realised it ws time to face my fear and go for a matte colour. Looking for a blue toned red was suprisingly difficult and I now understand why ‘Ruby Woo’ is such a favourite.

It suits so many skin tones and has incredibly colour pay off!  I made up my mind to pick up one while I was in New York City as a little treat 🙂

My only issue with this lipstick is that while it has great staying power it transfers and bleeds quite a lot. For me, I couldn’t wear it without lip liner, and everything my lips brushed on got some red action! I’m all up for making a lasting impression but I was kinda careful about the angles and physics of my hugs ha! I don’t wear a full face of a make up crazy often. I am not used to it so you have to factor that in. All in all I am crazy about the colour, I can figure out a lip primer later….
