I wanted to just touch on the new MAC Riri Woo lipstick. First off, let me tell you that I do not have Ruby Woo, which is the inspiration for Riri Woo. I do have MAC Russian Red, which is another blue-based lipstick, and is similar to both Ruby Woo and Riri Woo. I have worn Riri Woo for the past couple of days. I think it's a beautiful red that would look fantastic on different skin tones. It is bold without being over-powering. The texture is something I have grown to appreciate. I normally prefer a more creamy texture. However, the Retro Matte formula, despite being on the dry side when you apply it, is very long lasting. I don't feel the urge to lick my lips throughout wear. The color payoff is excellent and you don't need to use a ton of product to get a great result.
There have been some who have commented about it flaking. I didn't have this experience. That may be because I didn't touch it once I applied it. I didn't lick my lips or smoosh my lips together to blend or feel it on my lips. I do recommend using a primer or a lip balm if you have experienced the flaking issue. I used mine without any primer or lip balm.
I recommend using this gorgeous color and making it your go-to red in your collection.
