Ruby Woo by MAC is my absolute favorite… and every other girl I know loves it just as much, which makes me hate it sometimes. I have found myself more then once walking into a room with a dozen different ladies wearing Ruby Woo. I always handle situations like this gracefully, usually screaming “come’on” and wiping my lips with dissatisfaction. But, I mean… what can you really do when you have found the BEST LIPSTICK EVER?
Besides the gorgeous red red color (with slight blue undertones), it has the staying power of spray paint. You can eat a burger with a side of fries, and it’s still on. You can wear it to the beach, swim in the ocean and tan for two hours, and it’s still on. But the best is, you can go to a party, get completely hammered, talk and dance for hours, get home and pass out, wake up in the morning… and its still on.
I also like to call this the “first timer”, as its the perfect start for red lipstick virgins (btw give a bj… and its still on). The color looks good on any skin tone and I can honestly say I’ve never met a girl that did not look amazing in this lipstick. But again, the biggest perk is you dont need to fuss with reapplying it.
Lately I’v been using it as a base and mixing it with other colors, NARS Dragon girl and Vincent Longo’s Ignition are my current faves, or with a bit of orange or pink pigment. Sometimes on days where I don’t feel like going all the way, I’ll use it as a stain, just by rubbing it on the lips, then cleaning it off… and its still on.
