This is my third review for a MAC Product.
So the product today is again from classy range which is most known ,famous and talked about shade MAC Matte lipstick “RUBY WOO” 🙂 ) Have already reviewed two more M.A.C lipshades links are mentioned below.
Lipstick Category : Matte
What MAC Claims:
Formulated to shade,define and showcase the lips.Hundreds of hues,high fashion textures.The iconic product which made M.A.C Famous.
The shade I am reviewing today is MATTE RUBY WOO.
“RUBY WOO “is from Retro Matte Collection , its a Classic Red Shade with Matte Finish. It looks pure Maroon once applied on lips.This shade is for Everyone ,all skin tones .Especially for Indian Skin Tones.
1500 INR for 3 gms
The packaging of MAC lipsticks is really cute, travel friendly twist up bullet and unique and most of the brands are coming up with similar packaging.
Pigmentation and Texture:
This shade is from Retro Matte Series of M.A.C. Its very well pigmented with high coverage finish in just one swipe.One swipe is enough for a perfect look with minimal make-up just an eye liner and it brightens up your face instantly.
But the challenge comes now .The texture of this shade is MATTE just MATTE and its very drying .So one has to apply good pressure to apply this shade.It does pull and tugs lips which might be bothersome for few people.But once applied lips look beautiful .It settles to Matte within few seconds of application .Its transfer proof .This shade does not settles in fine lines of lips.It does not bleeds but to apply such classy shade its always good to apply a lip liner .
Lips do not feel heavy at all, you wont feel that there is something applied on lips.This shade is not very moisturizing but you wont feel dry once applied.I would highly recommend to exfoliate your lips and apply lip balm before applying this lipstick since it might feel bit drying after few hours.This shade has very light vanilla fragrance hence its very comfortable to use as I have sensitive nose.
Staying power :
The staying power of this shade is very good around 5-6 hours with food and drinks break.It sustains for a good time .It starts fading from the center of the lips and leaves a beautiful red tint on lips.It can be easily removed using cleansing milk/make-up remover or my personal favorite Coconut oil.
Earlier I was always skeptical to buy MAC products online if I would be receiving original ones.Since they are bit on higher end.
But there ‘s a great news NYKAA has now launched exclusive MAC products in India .The link is mentioned below.
If you looking for a bold ,classy and beautiful shade to grab attention of people around you ,you must try this shade .I likes this shade but not as much as M.A.C Lady Danger .That shade still is one of my favorite one.Ruby Woo is perfect for evening and party wear.This shade is very subtle ,soft dark red which looks very easy going even for daily use.I sometimes use this shade for office wear also . It is definitely face brightening shade.
It looks beautiful on all skin tones.Apart from the over Matte texture of this shade I don’t see any more cons.
So for people who are lipstick junkies like me don’t think just give it a try and I am sure you would not regret buying.
I would not repurchase this shade but would like to try something from M.A.C Amplified series.
