MAC Cosmetics Riri Woo Swatches and thoughts {Giveaway CLOSED}

MAC riri woo


I haven’t purchased anything from MAC in a while since I’ve placed myself on a no-buy; however, since Riri Woo was being released, and I love myself a red lipstick, I figured I’d break my no-buy and purchase it.  Like many MAC Cosmetics fans, I had my alarms and reminders set to sign-on to the MAC website, to purchase the most-wanted Riri Woo lipstick.  My wait wasn’t long, and I ended up getting more than one, which I will offer one in a giveaway.

My thoughts

I must admit when I first saw people swatching photos of the Riri Woo lipstick, I thought that I’d been had;  it seemed like a complete dupe for Ruby Woo, which is my favorite red lipstick.  Not until I had Riri Woo in my hands, I was able to make myself feel better about the purchase because there were some differences in the two lipsticks.  Yesterday, on instagram, I posted swatches of Riri Woo and Ruby Woo side by side.

Riri Woo is a retro matte, unlike Ruby Woo, which is a matte lipstick.  Riri Woo is not as drying on the lips, and it lasts longer.  To me, the pigment is better, and it goes on better than its sister, Ruby Woo.  Riri Woo, is a little richer, and deeper, and it is more blue-based, which makes it a perfect red for brown girls like myself.  Check my instagram to see a photo of me wearing Riri Woo.  Overall, I’m happy with the purchase.



As I mentioned previously, I purchased more than one.  One lucky reader/subscriber will be able to win a tube of Riri Woo lipstick!
