MAC RiRi Woo Pro Longwear Lip Pencil
MAC RiRi Woo Pro Longwear Lip Pencil

MAC RiRi Woo Pro Longwear Lip Pencil ($21.50 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “cool red cream.” It’s a cool-toned, blue-based red with a matte finish. It was opaque on lips, and I was able to apply this shade evenly across the lips. The texture was barely creamy; enough that it did not scratch my lips, but it does tug and pull somewhat.  It wore for eight and a half hours and was drying while worn. Urban Decay 69 is brighter. MAC Cherry is similar. MAC Freehand is also similar. See comparison swatches.

Talk That Talk Pro Longwear Lip Pencil ($21.50 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “dark plum cream.” It’s a deep, dark, blackened plum. The color is interesting, because it’s really more of a berry-burgundy initially, but applying it to the lips in an effort to get more even/opaque color, resulted in the color turning into a blackened berry. The problem I had was the outer edge still looks quite berry-hued and nowhere near as dark. The consistency isn’t too creamy, but it is not the driest liner I’ve come across. It did not apply evenly. Make sure you don’t press your lips together (blot with tissue), as it can be a little tacky initially.  It lasted for nine hours but was drying on its own.  MAC Nightmoth is maybe a touch lighter, but it is similar. See comparison swatches.

RiRi Woo Lipstick doesn’t really need a lip liner, as it is so matte and clingy on its own, that it’s quite long-wearing and less prone to bleeding/feathering compared to other reds. If it does bleed or feather, then you may appreciate the addition of a matching lip liner. Talk That Talk Lipstick is better applied over the lip liner, as neither is great on its own, and together, they end up giving more even, opaque color.

    I just don’t understand why they would release the Talk That Talk liner when the quality is clearly not up to par with other Pro Longwear Lip Pencils. Far too patchy and unever color.

    • layla

      got the lipstick…..its not good either….IT was “ALL” “TALK”…this collection…..very much not impressed…I WILL stick with MAC LIPSTICKS IN : media, fod, smoked purple, diva ..etc.. plus ..my nars train bleu..is a major dupe for nc42-55..skin tones , my opinion…..so much for all the hype…:)

    So would the Talk That Talk lip liner not match the Talk That Talk lipstick?

    • It does if it was sheer/blended out, but just trying to apply even color resulted in it getting very, very dark! They match in the tube/pencil, but Talk That Talk is a lot sheerer applied than it is in the tube, whereas the pencil is more pigmented.

    Danggit. Why is Talk that Talk so patchy and darker than the lipstick? :( Could have been great….

  4. Talk that Talk makes your teeth really really really white!

  5. Mimi Maldonado

    At least theTalk That Talk lip pencil will help boost the lipstick’s pigmentation. Would be great if you posted a picture of both layered like you did with Riri Woo.
    Thank you for all your hard work btw. It blows my mind how quickly you can bust out all these reviews sometimes.

  6. Wow! Talk That Talk is just bad!

  7. I like Talk That Talk, but I already have Nightmoth, so I doubt it’s worth it. And it looks too patchy.

    When will you be giving grades for the rest of the lip products?

    I’m glad I saw this. I was going to pass on Talk That Talk cause I have Black Dahlia already but now I’m going to purchase it when it comes out but with the pencil. It changes the entire look of the lippy. The color is what I expected straight out the tube. Damn.

  10. Talk That Talk looks a lot like Nighmoth and Vino. I’m not sure whether to skip or not. I do love both liners lol

  11. Sherry Victoriano

    I have the RiRi Woo lip liner, and lip gloss. I used them both together and it kept bleeding out I was very sad because the color is so beautiful..

  12. Julia

    Christine,

    Could I substitute Talk That Talk liner with Bittersweet and get a similar color or would it be different?

  13. Hi Christine! Would it be a waste if I get the RiRi Woo Pro Longwear Lip Pencil when I already have one in the Trust In Red shade? :)

  14. ELENA C
