I’m still learning about the right coloring for skintone and whatnot, but I really love this color. It is the perfect pink for me and lasts surprisingly long even compared to other MAC lipsticks.

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 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.

This is a very unique color. I wouldn’t call it orange but I’d rather describe it as light brown, tan leather color.
It works well with earth tone eye shades.

Crème Cerise
Skin Type: Dry, Undertone: Neutral

This is my perfect nude. Never have I ever encountered a lipstick that fit me so much; fit my lips so perfectly that it left me in total awe. I just started getting into MAC lipsticks this year and I thought after Fresh Brew, there couldn’t be a more perfect nude for me until Crème Cerise came along. I hate that MAC made this limited edition. I’ve fallen so head over heels in love with it that it hurts me to even use it now, knowing I’ll have to scramble to find another seller of it. Definitely worth every dollar and cent I paid for it. Bring this back now, MAC! I neeed it!!

I wanted to adore this and I just… don’t. Maybe its just mine, but it does that weird pilling/clumping on the surface of the lipstick. It just feels so dry! Also, perhaps its all the pink in my skin, but it pulls so brown-red on me.

I love this one. The color is perfect for daily use, but the shade it’s better for autumn or winter. I think looks better on light neutral skins. My favorite fact about this one is as the color is vanishing, the dyed lip stays.

Lady Danger
Skin Tone: Light, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Neutral

I love this lipstick! It’s really easy to get a crisp line straight from the bullet with this formula. It never gathers or looks dry. It’s not moisturising, but it’s not drying either. I always prep my lips with MAC Lip Conditioner before I wear their mattes, blot my lips then apply the lipstick. After about 4 hours of wear I dab a tiny bit of Lip Conditioner over the top and that keeps my lips happy. I can skip that step without

On my NC20 skintone (I have neutral-to-warm undertones) it looks like a warm-toned red, super flattering and lovely. However on my NC40 friend, it looks straight orange (though just as lovely)! I was shocked to see it’s such a chameleon!

Russian Red
Skin Tone: Light, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Neutral

I got this as a Back 2 Mac shade, almost as an afterthought – and I am impressed! It’s crazy pigmented, and the shade is so flattering – much more so than I expected.

It can be hard to get a crisp line straight from the bullet, and one does NEED a clear line with a shade like this. The upside is, it’s so matte that I can go outside my natural lip line and it will stay there. It’s not drying or hydrating – I dab a little lip conditioner over the top after about 4 hours and I’m good.

It really creates a classic, pin-up look – AND it does actually makes my teeth look whiter (no, really!!).

Freckletone
Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Yellow

Works very well with my yellow undertones and smaller, plumper lips for an everyday colour that branches out a little from the everyday beige/pinky nudes. It remains subtle but effective in making my lips look great plus brings out my blue eyes!

Ravishing
Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Yellow

I feel like this IS a pretty lipstick, and the consistency and colour in the tube is lovely. It also seems to look great on everyone else… but me!? It just makes me look a little alien (in a bad way – not a Scarlett Johansson way unfortunately) so for that reason, it’s a little regret in buying it.

Lustering
Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Normal-to-Dry, Undertone: Pink

Lustering has to be one of my favourite lipstick colours from MAC. It is such a perfectly pretty berry-pink (as opposed to a milky pink) that I just love wearing. My only complaint is that as it is a Lustre (not a Frost, as it’s described above), it is not all that long-wearing. But I love it so much that I can overlook that one flaw a bit, though I am always on the lookout for something like Lustering but in a more long-lasting formula.

Angel
Skin Tone: Medium, Skin Type: Normal-to-Oily, Undertone: Pink

I found that this shade washed out my skin, just too pale for my liking. Not very long wearing at all and found it to be too drying on my lips, so I would recommend a lip primer or moisturise lips with a balm of some sort. Heard so many reviews boosting this shade so wanted to jump on board and try it for myself, now regretting my purchase.

LOVE! Absolutely beautiful colour – runs much more purple on me than on Christines lip swatch. Doesn’t require a lot of reapplication – just after a meal but it does tend to leave a deep pink stain on my lips the next day.

Skin Tone: Light, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Olive

A beautiful orange-red with a true matte finish. Once it is on it will stay for an extremely long time but it does take a bit to apply as it is a very dry finish lipstick. I suggest applying a thin layer of balm shortly before application.

Vegas Volt

I’m totally in love with this shade for spring, it’s my perfect coral; not too pastel but not too bright and leans more towards orange than pink. Application and wearability are excellent like most MAC lipsticks, it’s moisturising and doesn’t bleed. It applies well and is opaque in a coat or two giving even coverage. The finish is similar to other MAC amplified formulas, creamy and opaque with a slight sheen to the finish. The formula feels lightweight and moisturising on the lips, it really is a dream to wear.
It will last a good few hours and has will cope ok with moderate drinking and eating, I’ve managed a coffee and a snack without loosing all colour or getting the dreaded outer ring of colour but it’s not a ‘long lasting’ lipstick so don’t expect miracles.
Another excellent MAC lipstick.

Good red but makes me look older than my age. it looks super nice on Christine but turned “brownish-red”on me (and brown has never been a good lip color for me). I’m NC 15- NC 20 with yellow undertone. overall, a great product especially for girls with pink/neutral undertones.

A great blue toned red with gold micro-shimmer. It makes your teeth really white because of the blue in it, but because of the gold it makes it very wearable for a lot of people. I don’t like frosty lipsticks, and I don’t own any other Frosts from MAC, but this is really pretty and it’s hard to tell it’s even a frost. It’s quickly become one of my favorite red lipsticks.

I adore RiRi Woo’s pigment; it’s the perfect matte red color. RiRi Woo is very drying, however. Throughout the day, I need to reapply it multiple times also, but RiRi Woo is such a beautiful color; it’s definitely worth it.

Sounds Like Noise
Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Oily, Undertone: Pink

Naturally whenever someone as awesome as Hayley Williams does a collab with mac, I had to snatch this lipstick up as soon as possible. Although, the orange pigment is beautiful, the lipstick did leave more to be desired. I found that when first applying the orange didn’t look as good as it could without a good layer of primer. As it dried, the pigment seemed to concentrate/saturate and become much more noticeable, so I had to take it off and then reapply it thinner. Sounds Like Noise is such a beautiful true orange, however it takes a few wears to feel out exactly the right amount of primer and lipstick to wear to look optimum, but ultimately I would buy Sounds Like Noise again.

Skin Tone: Light-Medium, Skin Type: Normal, Undertone: Yellow

I am loving MAC lipsticks every time I buy but usually I make it a point to really check the color, because it might match my skin tone. As for their matte collection its a total rager and long lasting it also doesn’t dry the lips. Comparing to the cremesheen viand cremesheen is not that long lasting, you may want to re apply after an hour. As for satin viand, it is quite long lasting in the lips.

The thing that i like about MAC lipsticks is its very affordable.

Studded Kiss
Skin Tone: Tan, Skin Type: Normal-to-Dry, Undertone: Olive

Its a beautiful wine red color but I was displeased to find that this color has been released by MAC just with a different name. I hate when companies release the same product labeled with a new name. Studded Kiss is an exact dupe of MAC’s Fixed On Drama from the
Retro Matte Collection and Dark Side. And Riri Hearts MAC Heaux might be another dupe. I have yet to swatch that one side by side with Studded Kiss but I assume its dupable too. I guess it will be years before I have to go out and buy another wine colored lipstick.

Heroine
Skin Tone: Light-Medium, Skin Type: Oily, Undertone: Neutral

After having missed the boat with the last release of this gorgeous lip color, I thought I’d just have to let the idea go and either find a dupe or live without the perfect bright purple lipstick that I so craved. And then MAC heard my cries and released this into the permanent line! Huzzah!
I picked it up today and immediately applied it in the car. And it’s glorious. Even though it’s a matte shade, it doesn’t dry out my lips like their matte formula usually does. It’s actually quite weightless and comfortable.
It applies at full opacity with one swipe, but I have noticed that it is just ever so slightly patchy in the center of my bottom lip. I’ve not yet applied it over P+P Lip, however. I suspect it’ll perform better over that.
It’s super long-lasting. I’ve gone through a bottle of water and a hot tea and while there is transfer, it doesn’t migrate all over my mouth or look super-faded. It also does not feather, which is practically miraculous on me.
I’m so glad I picked this up. Violetta was a touch too sheer for my liking – I need full coverage on my not-pigmented-at-all lips. So the re-launch of this amazing color is a godsend.

Made to Order
Skin Tone: Light, Skin Type: Normal-to-Oily, Undertone: Yellow

One of the Lady GaGa shades, Made To Order is a frosted mauve gold that would be a YLBB shade (your lips but better) if you lived in the world of the glitterati. On light skin it has enough color to not look washed out. Applies evenly and is buildable to become really golden-frosty. A little less moisturizing than the rest of the line.

Craving

This is probably one of my favourite MAC lipsticks! The colour is a flattering light to neutral pink and works as an every day colour. The formula is creamy and moisturising, leaving a nice sheen on the lips. It’s not long wearing though (3 hours) , but that’s not an issue for me personally.

Skin Tone: Light-Medium, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Neutral

I bought two of this lipstick, because I honestly think I don’t want to live without a backup! I’ve always loved reds, but the amount of pink in Love Goddess makes it quite special, in my opinion — Not to mention this is one of the most long-wearing lipsticks I’ve owned!

For those who couldn’t get their hands on Love Goddess, NARS Luxembourg is a good alternative, in my opinion. :)

RiRi Woo
Skin Tone: Fairest, Skin Type: Normal-to-Dry, Undertone: Yellow

I don’t have Ruby Woo but I am really starting to love matte lippies so when this restocked, I ordered it. I don’t find it overly drying, even for a matte ( I use Chanel Rouge Allure Velvets, Rimmel London Kate mattes and Lime Crime Velvetines for comparison ) but I practice a pretty intensive regular lipcare routine to exfoliate, treat fine lines, hydrate, etc. I think that’s the secret to successfully wear both mattes and the pale colors that show every little imperfection. Since it’s well pigmented, I can get away with a little overdrawing so I’ll likely use a lip brush for precision but even a quick application from the tube left a nice, clean edge. There are several color dupes for Ruby Woo but this one is as much about the formula and performance. I think it’s worth splurging on if you normally buy drugstore formulas, and it’s a smart all-season deep cool red to add to a higher end collection and won’t underperform next to luxury brands.

I literally love this color! It is so beautiful on medium skin tones. I love the cremesheen formula because it is so moisturizing and smooth. I actually bought mine yesterday and fell in love with it when I tried it on in the store. However it did melt a little in the car ride home and the lipstick is really hard to open. I think I got a defective one. But I would still recommend this Mac lipstick to everyone due to the sheer formula that blends into your natural lip color.

Skin Tone: Fairest, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Yellow

I have very fair skin with yellow-neutral undertones, and this lipstick looks so flattering on me! It’s matte so not the most moisturizing formula, but it’s not drying either and doesn’t really tug or pull when applying. It is very long lasting, I wore it for my wedding banquet (+10 dishes!) and only had to reapply at the end. Although it doesn’t tend to bleed, I use with MAC Cherry lip liner to get a very defined edge. Super recommended!

Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Oily, Undertone: Yellow

I won’t write too much since this was limited edition, but it’s one of my favourite lipsticks ever. If I had known I would love it so much I would have bought several. It’s a really smooth and comfortable consistency so it applies really nicely. It has a gorgeous gloss and subtle sparkle that makes it such a pretty neutral with something extra. Wears for a stupidly short time and mine did snap very easily, but the colour is just so wonderful I was generous with the rating!

Prince Noir
Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Oily, Undertone: Yellow

I love this lipstick! Matte finishes are my absolute favourite, and the darker the better! Such a beautiful shade the honestly doesn’t seem all that intimidating to wear out of the house. It’s just the right amount of vampy without appearing too gothic, for those who aren’t going for that look. Forever gutted that it isn’t permanent, but so happy I picked it up when it was available. It wears for a good amount of time, and does withstand eating and drinking to an extent, but inevitably inner-lip wear does occur. I gave it a 4/5 because for some reason or another it smells pretty gross. I don’t know if it’s limited to the one I bought, but it definitely does not have the sweet vanilla scent associated with MAC lipsticks.
If anyone wishes they could get their hands on it then try out Nightmoth Lip Pencil by MAC because it’s almost the exact same shade. I love wearing them together.

Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Oily, Undertone: Yellow

I have such a personal struggle to find light/nude lipstick shades that suit me, so I feel particularly strongly about this lipstick because it is the PERFECT nude shade for me. I notice the product is listed as limited edition, but I’ve seen it on the MAC website for at least the last 6 months, so I really recommend it to anyone who finds traditional/popular nude shades too ‘corpsey’ on themselves. In terms of application it is very smooth, comfortable and moisturising. It in no way draws attention to lip lines, and does not emphasise them either. I did not give it 5 stars simply because it doesn’t last for a particularly long time (especially when eating and drinking occur).

I have a medium/ olive skintone with yellow undertones. My lips are slightly darker.
The colour is so pretty! On me though, it was a very sheer orange. I had to apply this several times to get a brighter orange. It looks so pretty when wearing it with the blushers! Out of the colours I bought from the MAC All about orange collection (Tart and Trendy, Sushi Kiss, Flamingo and Razzledazzler), this was the sheerest colour payoff but nevertheless it is a lovely lipstick!

I have a medium/ olive skintone with yellow undertones. My lips are slightly darker.
I was hoping that this colour would be the best one from the collection but i’m very much on the line about this. When I put this on from the tube, it was really pastel orange on the lips – kinda like how some neon pink colours are on me where my lips look a little scary. Think MAC saint germain but in coral and not as bright. There is a plus side though! Once I blotted my lips with tissue to take away the excess, it revealed a beautiful coral nude shade which is perfect. Out of the colours I bought from the MAC All about orange collection (Tart and Trendy, Razzledazzler, Flamingo and Tangerine dream) this was the strangest. It might work better with a gloss over it.

Skin Tone: Fairest, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Neutral

I would have NEVER thought this was a color I could pull off, but it actually looks nice against my super pale (Bobbi Brown Alabaster) skin. It has just enough pink in it that it doesn’t clash. My only issue is it is really difficult to get it even on my lips in one layer. I have to put some on, blot, and layer on more to get even coverage. I have found that if I use MAC Lasting Sensation lip pencil under it, then it goes on smoother. The color lasts quite a long time on me too, but it can be a bit drying.

Sunny Seoul
Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Neutral

This is my go-to light pink, Sunny Seoul is a little shimmery and definitely on the sheer side so it’s a great choice for easy color. Because of the shimmer it can go on unevenly especially if your lips are dry. For some reason on my skintone this reads slightly blue but not too bright, where Pink Pearl Pop was super neon, so I definitely like this one better.

This is a gorgeous neutral/slightly cool medium-ish pink. I say medium-ish because on fair skin it’s slightly darker than my natural lipcolor, but for darker and richer skin tones it would definitely be light. Good coverage, not sticky at all, and just enough blue tinge to make my teeth look extra white. I have to mention also, I bought this on a whim in store having not been much of a lipstick person before, and it set me on a MAC lipstick bender like no other. I love it!

I bought this shade on a whim and it ended up being the color I liked the most from the Après Chic collection. It’s very versatile and looks great paired with a warm smoky eye. On me it looks peachy gold. It does have that metallic quality to it so it’s not the creamiest shade but I have terribly dry lips and it doesn’t bother them. I have been pleasantly surprised with this shade.

Clearly this is not a color for everyone. It is different and eye catching but that is what most of us love about Mac anyway. The consistency is smooth and wonderful and opaque with one swipe. For most people this color requires a little creativity as far as lip liner and/or lip gloss but that’s what makes makeup so fun. I haven’t worn it a lot because it is a little high maintenance but I’m still glad I bought it. I pair it with NYX lip liner in Purple Rain and it looks awesome. It also looks good with pink and purple glosses.

This was an impulse buy for me, I got a text on my phone from MAC saying it was available and just snatched it up. I’m glad I did. I don’t own Ruby Woo so I can’t do a comparison, but I do love this color. It’s a nice, cool tone red that would work well on a lot of skin tones. I’m not sure if it’s the finishing powder that I use or the lipstick itself, but it’s very long lasting. The only reason I give it 4.5 starts instead of a perfect 5 is because of the texture. It is very dry so I always wear a lip primer with it (Mac Lip Prime) so it goes on better and doesn’t feel so dry on my lips. Other then that I love the stuff.

Such a showstopper of a red color! It’s super flattering on my warm skin due to it’s orange tones and is my bright, sexy red (Russian Red is my darker red shade). Lasts probably 4-5 hours and leaves a slight stain behind. I would definitely recommend going into a MAC store to try it on before buying it as it is a very bright shade. It’s a great shade of red for summertime!

A beautiful shade of red! I have warm toned skin and this is still very flattering on me. It’s my darker, sexier shade of red (Lady Danger is my bright red). Even though it’s not a hydrating lipstick, it’s very creamy when it goes on and it’s opaque in one sweep. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a great, versatile red.

I am NOT a RiRi fan, but I am a fan of red lipsticks. I went with this one because I don’t have Ruby Woo (although I have worn it when borrowed from a friend). For one, I think it is NOT a perfect dupe for Ruby Woo, but it isn’t a major difference in the color. It is slightly darker and bluer but nothing major. It does however seem to feel a bit more comfortable on the lips and is less drying that Ruby Woo. It isn’t very forgiving if you have dry/chapped lips so you definitely need to prep your lips first if you have any flakiness that you need to take care of.

When applying for the first time I noticed a lot more tugging on the lips than I am used to, but subsequent applications have been much better. As I mentioned, I expected it to be extremely drying like Ruby Woo was but to my surprise it really wasn’t. It’s definitely not hydrating either though. If wearing a matte is just too much for you then you can apply a little lip balm on top and rub your lips together. This will change the texture but the color remains on the lips. Just something to consider if you love the color but not the feel of matte (or retro matte in this case).

If you aren’t a RiRi fan, you don’t have a love of all lip products that are red, and/or you already own Ruby Woo then you can skip this one with no regrets.

Another MLBB shade. a very good way to go the nude lip route if you’re not one for those beige-toned ones that just make you look washed out. It’s almost a fleshy pink that just works and has enough color to not make you look like a corpse. lovely.

Definitely a MLBB shade, at least for me! I love this for work and class or just those outings where you want to feel polished but not necessarily turn heads everywhere you do. it’s a comforting look. Some have had issues with the cremesheen line, in terms of dryness and such, but it works fine for me

lovely color, suits my skin really well. love that it can be applied super sheerly for a pretty stain, or layered on for a pin-up look. I’ve worn it numerous times, and always get tons of compliments. Since it is matte in texture, it is not the most hydrating lipstick out there; make sure to apply lip balm a few hours before you plan to apply this lipstick.

Skin Tone: Light, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Neutral

Please Me is one of MAC’s underrated permanent items (of which there are many!). It’s a great basic item to have – pink but not bright, neutral but still noticeable. The matte finish pairs excellently with this shade – in my opinion the finish is what makes this shade sing. This is one of my staple products. I have almost used a whole tube and will buy another when I use it up.

I obviously bought this lipstick because I love Rihanna! Aside from that, I’m completely in love with the color and finish. There is something very classic and sexy about the effect. I’ve never worn red lipstick, but this is a very positive step into that direction. If you’re looking for something super moisturizing, this isn’t the lipstick for you. If you love the look Rihanna has made her signature, cop RiRiWoo when it rereleases in the fall.
