When the Mac hearts RiRi collection first launched in the spring last year I had my eye on RiRi Woo as I currently don't own a matte red lipstick but it quickly sold out online so I just forgot about it. I then spotted that it was coming back, but this time it came in the form of lovely rose gold limited edition packaging so I knew I had to get my hands on it. So when it came back I popped it in my basket and patiently awaited the delivery. Getting a MAC delivery is always exciting isn't it! (does this make me sound really sad? hehe).
When this arrived it was no different. The gorgeous rose gold packaging just screams luxe and sparkles in my makeup drawer and inside is a deep retro red matte lipstick with the infamous MAC vanilla scent. It is a bright true classic red with a cool blue undertone which truly does make teeth appear whiter. This retro matte formula is as you would expect dry but smooth. When applying you need to cover every section as it dries instantly to your lips and doesn't budge! It lasts all night and I need to use makeup remover to get it all off, which is what I love about it, no worrying about it coming off, staining your teeth or smudging at the edges. If you have really dry lips then applying a lip balm first will help create a smoother surface. Being a matte lipstick it is drying but on me it still doesn't really show up on my lips and if I feel it is drying them too much then applying a lip balm or gloss over the top sort's that out.
For me this is now my staple red and as soon as I apply, I instantly feel glam!
Did you manage to get your hands on RiRi Woo?
