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.
