- Ruby Woo
I didn't like this color because it actually dried out at first and started to crumble on lips which I thought was really weird. But then I started to apply chapstick first then my ruby woo and it stayed on beautifully the color is truly matte and I love that.
Favorite Blue-Tone Lipstick
First of all I love red lipsticks and I love matte finish, so this is the perfect color for me! I am an NC35 and this looks great on me, plus because of the matte finish it can last for hours! It is very matte and some people find it difficult to apply and if that is the case for you I would recommend a lip primer or MAC Russian Red instead. I however love Ruby Woo since it reminds me of pin-up makeup :)
I finally just got this lipstick after it being sold out forever at my local MAC. It is an amazing shade of matte velvet bright red with a beautiful finish. I think its very similar to red velvet by lime and crime VELVETINES, only in a stick form. This year ive been completely obsessed with Matte lipstick. I think this is my new favorite(:
Perfect red lipstick! Suits on any skin tone. Must wear this if you wanna stand out in the crowd or look classy pin up. Very matte! No need to put another coat every hour or so, very long lasting even if i drink, eat or whatever it's still there. But you'll definitely should wear a lip balm under.
A must have! love love love <3
The perfect RED for dark skin
So I grew up thinking that BLACK women are not allowed to wear red. No, let me rephrase that, I grew up trained that DARK SKINNED BLACK WOMEN are forbidden from wearing RED LIPSTICK. If you, DARK BLACK SKINNED WOMAN, dared to cross that line then you were either a prostitute or a no-good ... But, how wrong. I don't know what prompted me to be BOLD and to cross the line, I guess the beauty vanguards were not paying attention, but I did. I wanted red lips to go with a smoky eye. I went to the MAC counter and I asked for red lipstick, I probably whispered it, thinking that I looked foolish. I tried Ruby Woo and Russian Red. Both of them, I love and love. Also, let me say that if you are into pin-up looks, Ruby woo is that perfect matte red that you need for such a look. It definitely is a blue undertone lipstick that will compliment your dark skin in so many lovely ways. If you have never tried any red lipstick, please let Ruby Woo turn you from a red lipstick virgin into a red lip VIXEN. If you find that it is matte, you can apply a gloss over it. If you think i like it but, it's still to red, please use a darker lipliner, such as: vino, burgindy, or nightmoth by MAC.
