    The second I tried to apply this lipstick in ruby woo it broke. I bought 2 other mac lipsticks and they were great stunning even... Mehr is sooo pretty and non drying but I was really looking forward to the ruby woo one and it broke and so did my heart lol. I really hate returning things but I have no choice I am not about to pay for another one

      I finally found a red lipstick to complement my dark brown skin. Mac's Ruby Woo is so pretty and long lasting. It is very matte so I would suggest exfoliating and hydrating lips before application!

                I generally wear neutral lip colors and so the description of this color sounded right. It is bright pink and I would never wear that.

                Pretty color, but a huge NO on the formula

                Comments about MAC Lipstick Retro Matte:

                I purchased Ruby Woo from the MAC store at my local mall, and I really do love the color. It's as flattering as they say it is, on just about everyone. But the color does not make up for the multiple drawbacks. This formula is incredibly dry, and a dry formula isn't unexpected for a matte finish, but my lips simply cannot handle this. It pulls all the moisture in my lips and it gets uncomfortable very quickly. The lipstick IS very pigmented, which is a good thing, because it's not a buildable formula, it's too dry for that. This lipstick also has a habit of crumbling as it dries throughout the day, so you may end up with chunks of lipstick on your cup, straw, in your mouth, etc. as it continues to dry and wear off. And because it doesn't build well, you can't easily just reapply it over the first coat, you have to take it off and start over. This is the kind of color that I want absolute precision with, so I used a brush to apply it... yet another thing that makes touch-ups throughout the day more difficult. Again, beautiful color, but really poor formula!

                Comments about MAC Lipstick Retro Matte:

                This formula is matte and is the traditional formula. Yes, it's a bit drying but that is a given with the formula. If you don't like doing formulas, check out other Mac lipsticks.

                That said, I love this lipstick. I have the shade flat out fabulous and it is my favorite lipstick in my collection. The color is great, doesn't transfer, and lasts forever. When it does start to wear, it fades evenly. The application is smooth and the classic Mac vanilla scent is there but not overpowering at all. Can't recommend it enough.
