MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick review

 

Hey readers,

Sorry that it has taken me a while to post but I have been feeling quite down lately. However, I feel much better now so I thought that I would take the opportunity to review a gift from my boyfriend. I don’t usually wear make-up but my boyfriend persuaded me to do so by giving me this lip stick and lip liner and I would love to tell you about it.

Color & Pigmentation: Ruby Woo, in my opinion, is the classic red lipstick of the world. It’s got a deep strawberry colour to it and I love it.

Longevity: Thanks to its matte finish, it’s definitely a long-lasting lipstick. , I wore this and it stayed the whole day in spite of eating and drinking.  Perfect for a night out.

Application:The texture is dry and stiff, which makes it harder to apply meaning that it takes me several swipes to put it on .It is also very matte , which makes my lips feel slightly dry but that’s not a huge issue as it makes it stay on longer.

Packaging: Black and round and closes with a safe click. Not exactly aesthetically pleasing but it’s what’s inside that matters.

Overall: 9/10. I am highly impressed by this lipstick, which has a gorgeous colour as well as a long lasting finish. My only quibble is the dryness that it causes to my lips.

Which is your favourite lipstick?

Lots of love,

Charlotte xoxo
