Mac RiRi Woo Lipstick Review

Unless you’ve been living under a Mac-proof rock you will have seen that a few weeks ago Mac released the first item from the ‘RiRi Hearts Mac’ Collection; their collaboration with the good girl gone bad, Rihanna.  This is my second red Mac lipstick and I’m not going to lie, it will have to be a knockout to beat my love of Russian Red!

RiRi Woo is the new twist on the original core collection colour, Ruby Woo!  Rihanna was apparently a huge fan of the colour and coincidentally it is one of the colours in the collection that matches quite a few skin tones.  I think the biggest difference between ‘Ruby Woo’ and ‘RiRi Woo’ is that the latter has more blue undertones that give the impression of whiter teeth (bonus).

The colour of this lipstick is lovely and I really do get the impression that it would suit many different skin tones.  Longevity wise, it didn’t last anywhere near as long a ‘Russian Red’.  It came off very easily when eating (unlike Russian red that does NOT move!!) and I had to top it up after every time I ate.  I also find the texture a bit difficult to work with as it seems very hard and doesn’t blend as easily as my other Mac lipsticks.  It is a ‘Retro Matte’ finish so maybe that explains the different texture to the regular matte mac shades.

Overall, even with the few little niggles about longevity and texture, I’m really glad a gave into the hype and bought this lipstick.  The colour payoff really does out weight any negatives about the product.  However, that said i think I prefer my Russian Red overall!  It should be back in store in June 2013 and hopefully Mac will produce a few more so it doesn’t sell out as quickly!
