Mac style it up lipstick dupe

MAC introduced the Retro Matte lipstick range in 7 beautiful shades, perfect for those who prefer timeless glamour and elegance. Ruby Woo is known as the most iconic and incredible lipstick shade in red. What it Claims: It claims to be a long-wearing Lipstick formula with intense color payoff and a completely matte finish. It also promises to be long wearing, non feathering and fade proof.

Ruby Woo comes in a regular MAC black cardboard packaging with full description printed in white. This lipstick is housed in the MAC signature metallic case in charcoal color which speaks elegance and class. I love the fact that the MAC bullet-style tube lipstick cases are both user and travel friendly.

Texture and Application: I make sure to exfoliate and moisturize my lips before application of any lipstick. Exfoliation removes any dry or flaky skin and ensures a smooth application of lipstick. I applied lip balm 20 minutes in advance allowing it sufficient time to soak in my dry lips.

After blotting the excess balm with tissue paper , I defined my lips with a matching lip liner. Since the lipstick is super matte in nature, using a lip liner becomes essential to get definition around the corners of your lips. Instead of using a lip brush which I normally do, I applied the lipstick directly with the bullet and Whoaaa…I got such a strong color in just one stroke! I have never before felt so much fierce and confident wearing a shade of red. It flatters my medium, olive skin tone perfectly and I feel it is a shade for everyone. Ruby Woo gives those Hollywood retro vibes to the one who is wearing it, earning some extra sass points.

Pigmentation and Finish : Ruby Woo lipstick is neither too warm, nor too cool; just the perfect shade of red. The undertone of this shade has the power to bring out the best of many different complexions.

In the swatch above, I put on one layer. At first, it's a workable daytime color for normal people.

However, it builds up beautifully and can be made into a gorgeous dark fuchsia-plum-red-heaven sort of deal. It brings out my green eyes and pale skin unlike anything else I own, and the shade itself can't be found anywhere else. The uniqueness of this shade makes it worth the ridiculous pricetag.
