I expected a darker red, but when I tried it on, I LOVED IT!
It´s the perfect fall/winter red, the berry undertone looks really flattering, and it makes it look quite vampy but it is definitely an everyday red color. The formula is matte, it lasts for a long time, and because it leaves a stain you truly never have to reapply it, it is not dry nor hydrating, it´s perfect!
The formula is kind of the same as Rebel by Mac, since you can build up the color, or leave a wash of color on the lips, and it´ll leave a stain, however this is a lot more pigmented that Rebel.
I really love this color, but am giving it 3 stars because after wearing it for two hours, it was removed from my lips and only outlined them in this awful flakey purple residue. I haven't had this problem with my other Mac lipsticks. Maybe I should use a lip primer next time? I really want it to work- just be aware to check it so you don't end up looking embarrassing at work like me : )
A classic lip colour. I love this colour, despite the fact that it is a cool red and I have strong yellow undertones. It is highly pigmented and once on, it does not budge. It is slightly drying, but that's nothing a little balm can't fix. I think this is one of those universal reds that will look great on anybody. And I much prefer it over Ruby Woo. If you are a newbie to MAC lipsticks, I would definitely recommend this one to start with!
This is an amazing colour. I believe it is one of the Mattes. Either way, it is one of those brick-orange reds that is perfectly suited to dark-skinned ladies. Since it is a Matte, it is fairly drying and causes my lips to flake. The colour is well-worth it thought and the wear-time is great!
honestly, this is one of my go-to essentials in my makeup kit - it's quite versatile depending on skin tones and can range from subtle (well as subtle as bright-ish purple can be on lips) to super bright.
it's very creamy and goes on smooth, although sometimes it feels kind of thick. it's not the sticky type of thick, so that's a plus. it smooths my dry-ish lips, and makes it feel soft and supple-y. in the heat here it manages to hold on, as i wore this shade for a dance. i wore it for 3+ hours, and it stayed on. like, it was clinging to my lips the whole event. there was obvious transfer on the glass of water, but it didn't feel or look splotchy. it's quite pigmented, as one run through my lips was quite opaque. IMO, this is a great starter lipstick for a person who likes edgy yet wearable lips. price *might* be an issue for some, but TBH it's a really good value. it's part of the permanent line-up, so you can get it anytime!
My HG vivid red, there is nothing like this. It brightens up my entire face and is my most complimented lipstick I've ever worn, it's velvety, and has zero stickiness. That being said... this is not a luscious creamy lipstick (think the opposite of Bite or Too Faced). I constantly moisturize my lips and apply heavy lip balm every night, so I rarely run into drying issues with any of my lipsticks. This can be drying if I reapply during the day (which is not often). I also haven't had tugging or dragging problems during application.
This lipstick is gorgeous a typical cool-toned blue barbie pink that I love. I recommend this lipstick for anyone who wants to try something different or who loves barbie pink lips. This is a colour from MAC that I will keep repurchasing. The colour pay off is really good and it lasts quite a while but because it is an amplified creme finish it makes your teeth look a little yellow. The lipstick is scented with the typical MAC lipstick scent. The only cons of this lipstick is that they make your teeth a little yellow. I really do recommend this lipstick but not everyone can pull it off. The packaging is typical MAC packaging it is very durable and strong although the lids do come off quite easily.
This is an amazing lipstick. The colour is absolutely gorgeous but it isn\'t for everyone. The colour is to bright for some and some people just can\'t wear colours like this. For me this colour looks really good on and is just amazing. The packaging isn\'y flimsy, which is good and the rest of the collection I didn\'t try but this lipstick is good if you want to try something different although it is discontinued.
This was my first MAC lipstick, ever. I combine this lipstick with the MAC lipliner, Cherry, and it looks absolutely stunning together.
I am in love with this shade of red. It lasts forever and makes your teeth look whiter because of the blue undertones in the lipstick.
This is a highly recommended lipstick by me - even though if you have Ruby Woo or MAC Red :)
Great on my dark neutral skin tone for everyday wear. A mix of brown, peach and red. It's nude enough for daytime office wear yet pops out a little due to its unique color. Applies well on my dry lips and is slightly moisturizing despite of matte finish.
With my olive complexion, this lipstick shade gets me lots of compliments. Prior to applying lipstick, I do dab a little vaseline & pat the rest off with a napkin before applying. This helps counter the drying effects of this matte lipstick. I do love this color.
It's From Dama Edna collection, launched a lot of years ago but I'm still a huge fan! The texture is like a semi matte, because it's not too dry. And the color is the most beautiful magenta ever made. Please MAC bring it again!
I saw this lipstick in a blog once I passed a long time wanting it, and now that I have I can say that it's a very weird lipstick. But I like it. At first the orange tone is a little bit off, but not enough neon, a very cold color, but then you blend it a little bit and pink comes out - and in pictures it looks great! So I'd say this color is on the orange-pink verge, very unique. As I said, it's a nice lipstick for when you are going to take lots of pictures.
I love this lipstick. Its my favourite for day to day red wear, still true red but somehow more subtle, maybe its the warmer tones. I can wear this to work and it will stay on all day as long as I don't eat something too greasy.
I have very pale pinky skin and this looks just as good on my dark olive skinned friend as it does me.
This is hands down my favourite red. I usually pair it with MAC Cherry lip liner to tone down how blue it is. I can wear this all day with no need to re-apply. It is a little drying but i hate the sticky feeling from some lipstick so this works for me.
This is a lovely lipstick, just "nude" enough for me without being ghostly. It's not something I can wear with a neutral eye, as it washes me out, but pairs well with a smokey or dramatic eye. Lovely texture and mildly hydrating too.
I purchased this at a cosmetics company outlet store - only wish I had bought an extra tube or two!!! This is a go-to color for me. Regardless of lip chapping, leftover stain, outfit, or time of day - this color works.
I love it! It's the perfect classic red with a cool undertone. I think looks good on everyone. And it's suuuuper matte, for me, looks beautiful. Also, it's very dry, so, you need to exfoliate and moisturize your lips before apply ruby woo.
You need a lip pencil (for exemple, MAC Nightmoth) if you want the color to be even. If you do so , the color is just gorgeous and the result is great.
It last for four hour on me before fading slightly.
It didn't dry my lips but it didn't hydrate them neither.
