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.
