MAC RiRi Woo Lipstick & Comparison With Ruby Woo

If I cared about my past, I would tell you the things Rihanna & I have in common. I cared so zilch nada that I didn't realize the thing that would've stopped me from buying this lipstick in the first place. I wanted a deep red lipstick, I was constantly listen to Rihanna's song 'Pour It Up' (Pour it up, Pour it up...That's how we ball out...), I'm a sucker for Limited Editions....and I did not see clearly. 
But I don't care, so we'll just talk about RiRi Woo, a lipstick created for Rihanna. 'Riri' is her nickname.
MAC RiRi Woo ~ Vivid Cool Red shade. Retro Matte Finish. MAC's retro matte is the driest version of matte. When it comes to red lipsticks, it is my favorite kind. Intense, smudge-proof & long-lasting.
In a nutshell, RiRi Woo is a big disappointment. It's not a bad lippy, it's just not what I expected it to be. To me, it is exactly like Ruby Woo (shown properly here). I even think it is Ruby Woo only with RiRi carved into it.

Riri Woo 'Vs'  Ruby Woo

See how same-same they look? The only difference is my Ruby Woo is older, almost as hard as a crayon now (especially coz of Scotland's low temperature), and doesn't glide on lips as smoothly as debutante Riri Woo, anymore. If you have Ruby Woo, forget Riri Woo- well, unless you're a die-hard fan of Rihanna, or you want both =)
There could be a slight difference, but life is too short for me to keep staring at 2 red stripes on my arm and search for it.

MAC RiRi Woo Price ~ £14 (Rs.1175). It's an online exclusive right now, so it's not sold in stores.
My Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ 3.5/5 

Btw, MAC is launching a bigger Rihanna Collection in June, and there are 2 other lipsticks make me wish I didn't get this one even more.

  4. I didn't realize they were so similar, from other pics I thought it would be a bit darker than Ruby Woo. It's still pretty though! But I'd rather get Ruby Woo instead. :)

  5. oh, that sucks. I'd thought one was more on the orangey side and the other(RiRi Woo) was bluer red in depth. Sad how some other blogs have been misleading people about the colour. I will stick with your review and not purchase it. The only visible difference from your pics is that the RiRi Woo looks more glossy and waxed in the bullet while the Ruby Woo is totally matte.

    1. orangey as in a brighter red compared to RiRi but not in an orange way....sigh..for want of sleep, i can't explain what i mean any better.lol :)

    2. Haha...no worries, I got what u meant. Riri looks brighter coz Ruby's bullet is older and has hardened a bit, so I could apply it with as much ease as I could brand new Riri

  15. May be the only reason I didnt run for Riri woo is that I was patiently waiting for this post which said that Ruby and Riri woo are the same-I mean I checked some 50 blogs for swatches and Riri looked-like what you said-a Riri stamped Ruby woo :D :D

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
