“What are you wearing?”- A question I always get when I wear MAC Retro Matte Lipstick Ruby Woo. Ruby Woo is my first red. Before this, I never wore any red. It was a big risk. But when I tried it on my visit to MAC store, it looked ravishing!
Ruby woo’s pigmentation is a show stopper! Just one swipe is enough. But since I’m extra, I wear two coats. Even then it does not smear. It glides on so smoothly and stays that way for a good 4-5 hours (when I don’t eat). It does transfer by the way. That’s why it does not last when I eat my meals.
MAC Retro Matte Lipstick Ruby Woo gives a matte finish, but though it gives a matte finish, it does not sit on the fine lines of my lips. It isn’t drying but very comfortable to wear. I have dry lips, but it works very well on me.
I will definitely be recommending it. There are different beautiful shades as well. I wanted to get all of them but I was short on budget. When I have enough, I will be trying all the shades for sure!

Glides on the lips smoothly
A wide range of colors for every occasion
Lipstick melts in hot temperatures
I love nude shades! So, when I saw Runway Hit, without a second thought, I bought it. Runway Hit is a very beautiful nude. It has hints of a coral-peachy shade, so it’s not entirely nude. Which makes it a very versatile shade. I was using it for every occasion, it is one of the colors that goes with everything.
But the love ended after three weeks. It is partially my fault though. I kept my lipstick in my handbag and was doing fieldwork. It was a sunny day. To my horror, I came back home with a melted lipstick! Like seriously? It melted! I tried freezing it, but now it is just a mess. Lesson learned! Please don’t make the same mistake.
I don’t want to repurchase it because I mostly work outdoors so this might happen again.

Mild vanilla smell
Does not bleed
Does not dry out the lips
The best lipstick that ever existed! It's a true purple shade lipstick with blue undertones, which suits my dark skin very well. Its staying power is better than most of the drug store lipsticks I have ever used. I got my first the shade All Fired Up two years back, and since then I am hooked to it. The cute bullet case lasts very long. So in a span of two years, I just had to buy it three times. The third case I bought three months ago and I still have a lot left. I love the matte finish which leaves a slight sheen. It is the best bold shade for dark skin for me!

MAC cosmetics was the first high-end brand I was introduced to as a teenager, and since then I have a thing for MAC products, especially their range of lip colors. I have a big collection of it. One of my favorites is the shade Dangerous. From the day I purchased it, I have loved it. I don’t use it every day because it is indeed a bold color. But on special occasions, I lean on this shade only. Despite being matte, it blends nicely for an ombre lip look. I will recommend it any day.

No, though MAC Retro Matte Lipstick is a matte finish lipstick, it will not dry out your lips because it is highly moisturizing. It leaves your lips feeling smooth and soft. However, if you have extremely dry lips, then moisturizing is required before applying this lipstick.
