Comments about MAC Lipstick Retro Matte:

Ruby Woo is my everyday lipstick. I literally put a full glam face on mon thru fri for work..but that's just my personality. It is my favorite lipstick in the world..I love everything about it except..the smell after a few hours is gross.. I literally have to take it off and reapply. Also I was gifted Ruby Woo from a friend with the new red/black applicator. I don't feel it's the same formula. I feel it has less pigment than the original black.

Comments about MAC Lipstick Retro Matte:

If you're fair skinned, Ruby Woo is the perfect red for you! It's got that nice blue undertone to compliment your fair skin. I get so many compliments every time I wear it! Typically, I can get 4 hours out of this before I have to reapply (unless I eat--then, I have to reapply right away).

Now, the retro matte collection is very, very, very matte. It WILL be very drying on your lips. To help with this, make sure to exfoliate your lips and apply some lip balm before applying this lipstick. It'll help the color apply more evenly and keep it from feeling like you painted your lips with a bunch of chalk. It'll also help to apply a little bit of lip balm now and then throughout the day.

Comments about MAC Lipstick Retro Matte:

The pros of this product are that it's a beautiful, highly pigmented color that would look great on any skin tone. The cons are that it's not good on dry lips, the application is incredibly waxy and uneven which makes it difficult to put on, and it wears off easily. The quality is comparable to that of drug store lipstick, so I would save your money and go for a dupe.

Comments about MAC Lipstick Retro Matte:

I bought this based on an article about classic red lipsticks, so I purchased Ruby Woo. I have very fair, cool skin and need a blue based red. This is my new HG! The staying power of this lipstick is second to none. No need to reapply after drinking or eating. And this is the first lipstick that I have EVER worn that needs to be removed with make-up remover. (Yes, it is THAT good.)

The one downside? It is so matte that it is drying. I might try using a clear gloss over it next time I use it to remedy that problem. That's why it gets four stars and not five. Other than that, this lipstick is incredible.

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!
