        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.

        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.

        Comments about MAC Lipstick Retro Matte:

        I bought the shade RubyWoo after reading the rave reviews and while it is a great color I'm not a fan of the packaging or formula. It's very drying and needs to be applied over quite balmy lips. I found that it came off quite a bit during the day and is not transfer proof at all, it left a stain on my lips. It does smell good if you care about that. The color is great I'm just not a fan of the formula and the lid to my tube cracked in my pocket.

        Comments about MAC Lipstick Retro Matte:

        I purchased Ruby Woo directly from MAC and I must say this is a sexy lip color. The color last pretty much all day or night but it's a bit drying on the lips ( it's matte). This is not the typical red It's a retro (vintage) matte color . It's a must have color to add to your makeup collection.
