Famous for being dry. It's so dry I can't drag it on my lips. The color is supposed to be a universal red and it's a true red (I think it tends to blue red) and matte. Honestly, this is for the young and sleek. I don't have wrinkled lips but they aren't like they were when I was 20 when they were freakin' fabulous. Well, you can wear it any age if you adjust …Read more

I was a bit apprehensive when I bought Ruby Woo, because it feels so dry. As you all know, the color is sensational, you will not find a dupe. It is very difficult to apply (hence 4 and not 5 stars). However, strangely enough, it does not dry my lips, it felt comfortable all day and believe me my lips are very dry and dehydrated, even some lip salves make them dry! Maybe there is an ingredient …Read more

The colour is perfection but the consistency is the worst I have ever encountered. I tried everything to make this work but it balls up and flakes off leaving a patchy mess.

Okay this has to be one of the best reds out there as I've not seen it on one skin tone that it hasnt matched.
Also it is so long lasting especially if you wear the lip liner with it. I have always received compliments whenever I've worn it.

I dont really love this one. But i actually think it is because of my skin tone maybe as i love it on others sometimes. It also is a little stif when applied so i have to use a balm to make it spread. Not moisturizing as well.

This was so dry it didn't even deposit color the first few swipes. I had to drag it on to get color & then it looked like I did drag it on (skipped). It wears like quite a pinky red on me, being so bright it almost looks orangey in some light. Ruby Woo is a very bright lip color, where as I usually prefer deep over bright. Russian Red & Viva Glam I apply like butter compared to …Read more

I must be one of the few who don't love MAC lipsticks. I got this as part of a mini kit from ULTA and this is the only item I don't love. I just can't wear MAC lipsticks. They are so dry and hard to apply. This one is no different. I am good with the matte finish, but it didn't go on smoothly or evenly at all. It felt like I was pulling too hard on my lips for a lipstick. I …Read more

I got the little mac version because i dont wear red lippies often but i love this so much i def will purchase the reg size! I cannot wear this without mac prep and prime lip though. These two are a perfect combination and their burgundy lipliner! It looks like velvet on the lips and a classic red. I am c1 in face and body around nc20ish. This is my go to red if i want that bold lip look. I love …Read more

I went clubbing yesterday. I wanted to do a minimal eye makeup, some foundation, a flush of blush and highlighter. And a bold lip. Red was the color I wanted to wear because when can I wear a red lip when I have to do my office job (to avoid stupid commentaries I wear a nude lip color, sadly)? Never. Exactly.

I took my lip balm, removed it gently after 10 minutes, applied MAC Prep + …

This is THE red lipstick. It's the only red lipstick you'll ever need. If you want a red lipstick that is fancy looking and doesn't make you look like a clown this is the one! It's a blue undertoned red that will work for mostly everyone. Instantly brightens your face. The only downside on this is the insanely drying formula which is a pain. A way to deal with this is …Read more
