Mac RiRi Woo Review




So I got my MAC RiRi Woo last month :) I know a lot of people have already done posts on this but I thought I'd say my part too!

A lot of people were surprised I'd bought this as I'm not a massive Rihanna fan. Infact, I'm not a fan at all.  I like a few of her songs but that is about it. I didn't even set out to buy this at all, I had went into the Mac website to buy myself a treat for finishing my exams and it just happened to be the day Riri Woo was released. I decided I liked it (I'm a fan of red lipsticks) and bought myself one. Total fluke! I am so glad I did though, it's beautiful.

It is very similar to Ruby Woo but I don't own that so I'm not too fussed!

Here are some swatches and even a glam picture of me modelling it haha:



It is a classic red colour which I love, with blue undertones that can help make teeth look whiter. It is classed as 'Retro Matte' which I find to be really matte.

It is so glamorous, I love it. I was wearing a track suit then pjs the day I got it and it made me feel glam even then! I thought I'd try it out in the house (I do this with most lipsticks) to test how it dries, if it bleeds and how long it lasts. I was pleased with the results. The colour didn't bleed, but I lined my lips with  a Mac Lip Pencil beforehand so I'm not sure if it'd bleed without one. I always wear liner with red lipsticks, it helps keep it looking 'Hollywood Glam' and not 'Drunken Disgrace'. It survived a good few hours of me eating and drinking before it needed touched up, can't ask for more than that! As it is matte, I'd suggest buffing your lips and maybe even applying balm before you get your Riri Woo on the go to avoid the scabby lip look! I don't know anyone in the world that could pull that off!

Overall, I'm so glad I bought this. It's beautiful, I love it. It's not something I'd wear on a normal day but it's banging for special occasions!

  6. Oh this looks lovely on you, I love a classic red lip. I don't normally use a lip liner at all so I should probably change that!

  9. Love the design details as well! Look really good on you but I don't know if I can pull it off. I also have really chapped lips, so I might need some buff and balm (as you suggested) before applying. :p
