There is so much hype around ruby woo. I can't say it's not well deserved, because it is a good red lipstick. It lives up to what everyone says. It's a true red, a little drying in the lips, and quite flattering on many skin tones. That being said, I do think a percentage of the love for ruby woo is hype. Then again, I'm not too much for matte finishes and very much a Russian red kind of girl.

I wanted to love this. I did. But it just doesn't look good on me. Makes me sad.

I bought this lipstick a while ago, and while on the pricier side of $40 NZ, I couldn't help it! The people at the MAC counter where I bough it were really helpful, and I got to have a look at what it was like on before I bought it.I had NEVER worn red lipstick before, but I fell in love with the shade of red, and how it looked, so I took the plunge, it looks AMAZING on, and like other reviewers have said it does sort of drag on your lips. I also find that it looks like it's "bleeding" on my lips, no matter what I do (if anyone has any ideas as to what may be happening, or any tips on how I can stop it, it would be so appreciated!).The color is matte, but I don't think I'd like it if it wasn't, it suits pretty much anyone, I was surprised as I thought it would look weird on me, (for reference I wear Lancome Teint Miracle in No 1 I think, but it's kind of light on me).It was the one time I spent a lot on lipstick, and I'd happily but it again, I haven't run out yet, and I don't think I will for a while. The one thing I found is that my lipstick broke in half, so I kind of had to squish it back together, I was putting it away and I don't know how but the cap managed to go on a weird angle and squish it. I still love it though.Overall, really comfortable and would happily buy it again.

I received this as a gift for my birthday from one of my best friends and I was so happy when I opened it!Ruby Woo is a MAC lipstick shade I have wanted FOREVER! But because I have a vast range of red lippies I was waiting (impatiently) to receive this as a gift as I desperately need to curb my red lipstick spending! I own around 7 MAC matte lipsticks so was not at all worried about applying this, although the retro matte finish lippies are even more matte than the standard matte finish lipsticks, so do apply this carefully!Ugh I'm so annoyed! The colour pay off is amazing, such a simply beautiful red colour, bright and vibrant, everything you could want in a classic red lipstick! So why do I feel this makes my skin tone look dull and grey! I'm already a pale, typical British, blonde haired, blue eyed girl and this takes my pale skin to a whole new level!I have used facial fake tan purely to see if it is my skin tone that this lipstick just doesn't work with and it is, looks better when I'm tanned but then I don't really want to be having to fake tan/load myself with bronzer everytime I want to wear this lipstick! I have no idea why I have this problem as I know friends who own this (some of them paler than me) and they look stunning with this lipstick on! Not to mention raving reviews from people who also have fair skin! I am still glad I got Ruby Woo, I think if I'd have purchased it myself I would've been annoyed that I'd spent £15.50 on a lipstick only to be unsure on the finished look but because I got it as a gift I was still really happy to be able to try it and maybe I can make it work, it just might take a little imagination, some YouTube makeup gurus and a whole lotta make up remover!This has also encouraged me to go in my local MAC Store in the near future to try out their other best-selling reds such a Lady Danger and Russian Red to see whether they'd be better suited, definitely won't be ordering after my Ruby Woo experience!

Love this shade, it's the type of red that looks really good on most people. It does drag on the lips upon application , not moisturizing at all, feel kinda dry actually but it's expected for a matte lipstick but either way I would still repurchase because it's so sexy on. I have the ruby woo lip pencil and the shades a tad lighter in comparison. It helps to prevent feathering and stays put a good amount of time.

This is a really beaut, bold shade. It was my Birthday night and I wanted to wear something with a POW to it. I have been put off buying lipstick and red lipstick (having always been drawn to it - it looks so awesome and bold!) because I have really thin lips, I thought the lipstick would just highlight how small they were and wouldn't look flattering. I tend to wear lipliner to overline my lips so they look bigger, but forgot to put my plum liner in my bag so I popped into Selfridges and decided I was just going to go for it - buy Ruby Woo and the Cherry lipliner to overline my lips. The Mac girl was lovely and she first put a base of cherry over the lip and overlined my lips slightly - she then put on Ruby Woo. It looked gorgeous and I got a lot of attention wearing it. Rather than feeling self conscious about my lips and their size - Ruby Woo with the Cherry liner made my lips look pouty and beautiful - it was very flattering on and I felt my lips looked pretty and classy! It was a great colour that really made my whole look a little bit exciting and special. Cherry lipliner (also Mac) is the PERFECT match for this lipstick - they are practically the same shade and so if you overline the lips - you cannot tell your lips from the lipliner - they just look full and awesome. Good lasting power too :). Awesome colour and I am excited to try some more shades with matching liner! I also love the classy little black packing :)!

Definitely a bold red. Definitely try before you buy, does not look good on everything. Cost me $16.95 at the MAC store. Can be a little drying to your lips, scrub 'em and moisturize 'em good before wearing this. Will slowly wear off if you eat / drink, will also stain your lips. Can be worn thick and bold or light and subtle. I have never spent this much on lipstick but I think I miiiight just be a MAC lipstick convert on this one. (my pic is the face from the nose down with the rosy scarf) I'm 43, fair skin with coolish understones (but kind of olive too). My redheaded, pinky undertoned friend tried out my lipstick and it looked good on her too!

This is my ultimate red lipstick and I'm almost sure that it is MAC's ultimate red lipstick too, this is a beautiful velvety red.Price: I think for the quality of the lipstick even though it is considered an expensive 'high end' lipstick, it is still a reasonable price as it is just such a classic lipstick. Texture: Now I'm thinking a lot of people have probably complained about it being a 'matte' lipstick and thats its very drying, however! the trick is lovely ladies to keep your lips in good condition, e.g. using a lip scrub, using a good lip balm! if you have dry or cracked lips of course its not going to look or feel very nice. Colour: as stated before stunning.anyway this product does not need a long review as it is just fantastic. I would recommend this to everyone and anyone who was looking for the perfect red lippy.xxx
