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!

This really is a MLBB shade for me. It is just a tad peach and the right amount of pink. I just wish it was more long-lasting. (It wears for 2 hours on me)

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.

If you're into matte lipsticks, this is the best! This product looks great, might be a touch dry but it lasts forever even if you're eating/drinking. My favourite red lipstick!

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.

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.

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.

This is a very good lipstick. I am in search for another. This is how much I love this product. I am almost out of it and it's sold out. If anyone knows where it's available please let me know.

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!

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!!).

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!
