MAC RiRi Woo Lipstick


In the coming days all we are going to be seeing is RiRi Woo from bloggers & yes I sold out!

I went and purchased RiRi Woo like the rest of the universe. Caved under the pressure and hype! Of course we all know that it's an inspired take on Ruby Woo and both are very similar. No fancy packaging but it's once you open and begin to screw your lipstick upwards you notice what is different.

My friends & if you've followed me for a while know I live for the hooker lips & prostitute red's. Reds for every mood lol.

This was taken at night under artificial lights 

Taken in natural light 
Retro matte RiRi Woo is a deep undertone red. The finish is matt, drier and it's quite stiff when applying the first few times but it's ever so pigmented and I love that! It's my now go to night time red. You have RiRi's signature etched on the actual lipstick. It does get drier as the day goes on I noticed when I wore this yesterday.


This will be released again in June, so if you didn't get one this time round, you have next month.

Did you snag yourself a RiRi Woo?

  1. This does look gorgeous, I'm rather scared of a bright red lip on myself as I'm not very confident however I would love to be brave haha!

    1. I know from swatches and comparisons it's not a straight dupe to Ruby Woo but I'm going to look about in my collection to see if there's a affordable, permanent dupe xo

    1. Yes, the dryness. I think a well good, lip scrub and lip prep before hand and we should all be good to go lol xo

    1. I adore matte even as dry as they can be but I prefer that they just last longer on me and give a finished over all look.

    1. It is, such a nice deep red. Not an immediate dupe either for Ruby Woo, as people think xo

    2. I agree! It's not exactly the same as Ruby Woo. I have to work on a few more swipes on the Ruby for the color to build up, whereas Riri just needed one heavy swipe and the color's already there. I noticed that Ruby Woo also is a bit drier than Riri, it's as hard as a crayon and can't work on top of a lip balm. A waxy balm can work in prior to the Riri but on a Ruby Woo, the color just slides off :(

    4. I also noticed that the brightening effect of Riri Woo on my face is different compared to Ruby Woo. Riri Woo is a dramatic, deep shade of red and it looks really fierce. I almost totally forgot about Ruby Woo, so when I decided to give Riri a rest, I could see there's just so much difference. I even thought that Ruby Woo came a little orangey after months of wearing Riri Woo! I just hope they bring it back! Riri suits my undertone!

    5. And oh, thanks by the way for reviewing it in a way that made it a little different from the Ruby. All blogs that I read would say they're just the same, when in fact it's not! (Trust me guys). I'm willing to stick to the Riri Woo alone if it were a permanent MAC shade :(

    1. It's a lot more pigmented & a deeper red than Ruby Woo. You can see when people wear them in comparisons and swatches. You definitely don't need both imo.
