MAC Ruby Woo

Mac's Ruby Woo is a lipstick that gets a lot of hype in the beauty world, however I only purchased it recently. I was quite indecisive, torn between Ruby Woo and Russian Red. I eventually settled for this shade as Russian Red is a lot darker and deeper and more appropriate for the winter months, Seeming as we are (supposedly) coming into Spring/Summer I thought that a more bright and vibrant shade would look good on summer days.
 Ruby Woo is quite a blue-toned red and it seems to suit almost every skin tone! It is a matte texture which I usually don't like as I find it can be too drying on the lips. This however, provides a beautiful matte texture which I think makes my lips appear slightly bigger as well as giving it amazing staying power with out leaving my lips looking super dry!

I have read before that this lipstick can make your teeth look whiter and it definitely does! I have to say I think that might be my favourite thing about this lipstick as quite often reds aren't very flattering for your poor teeth, but with Ruby Woo I don't feel so self-concious when I smile!

 Overall, I think this is fast-becoming my go to red lipstick, previously it was Mac's Mac Red which is also lovely. I think this one is a real Hollyood-red, a classic colour that is always good for days when you need a little more oomph! Below is a picture of me wearing it on a recent night out (excuse my incredibly pale face!) it stayed on all night, I only needed to touch it up once!
