The perfect Red lips - Mac Ruby Woo

Last Christmas, my sister in-law got back from Dubai for her Christmas vacation and we got a chance to go to Duty Free in Paranaque to get some chocos, liquors and of course, MAC!


MAC as we all know is really over-priced here in Manila. (booo!) A tube retails Php1000.00 in SM MOA, and Rustan's that's why when I was informed that we'll shop at Duty Free, I braced myself (and wallet) off. hahaha.


After we paid everything at the chocolates section, we head straight at the Longchamp, Lacoste and cosmetics section. It feels like heaven when I saw that almost all the shades of lipsticks, Studio Fix and everything else is available because at that time, the stocks just came in. They're even fixing everything that's why we said that it's okay, just finish what you're doing first then we'll come back after 20 mins. I got Ruby Woo as I'm lemming to wear a bold, true red lippie. Ate Teng got herself Twig because of my influence. lolz.

 According to MAC:
 Ruby Woo is a blue-based red with a matte finish and nearly opaque color coverage. 


It is a really drying lipstick (one of the driest in fact) that I've ever use because it is in matte formula, BUT, I don't mind the dryness because I make sure that I put on my EOS lip balm first prior applying this one. Yes. It's true that it drags a bit when applying, but this I can assure you. It has the best staying power ever! I managed to eat and drink and yeah, I don't have to retouch. I just pucker my mouth and voila! It's like new again. It also made my teeth whiter because it's in a cooler side of red. You also have to carry your trusty lip balm in your purse though when you wear this one because it tends to be drying after around 4 hrs. of wear. ;-)



   All in all, I'm so happy that finally, I have found my HG red that I can pull off. It is such a bold and sexy red that I'm not afraid to flaunt even on daytime. lolz. I really like the compliments that people gave me whenever I use this and I tell you, it ALWAYS catches attention, so, if you're the shy type or never want to be looked at, this shade isn't for you dear. hehe. For all of this, I rate this 5/5! ♥




    Price: $19.00
    Place: Duty Free Philippines, Paranaque

yes, it's drier than other matte formulas of MAC, but I don't mind since maybe that's the reason for its long wearing formula too. ♥♥♥ let's just use lipbalms! haha! thanks for dropping by!
