            It doesn't go on easily, but after you get it on it says for a while. Drier formula so clumps a bit if you try to reapply after a bit

            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.

            Beautiful color

            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.

                A:

                The MAC Lipstick Retro Matte does not contain any corn, rice, wheat, oat, barley and rye derivatives ingredients. It does, however, contain a soy-derived ingredient.

                In addressing your concern about gluten, we would like to explain that a vast number of raw materials from many different suppliers and sources are used in the manufacture of M.A.C's products. It is therefore not possible for us to fully guarantee that our products are completely free of ingredients that may elicit an allergic response in highly sensitive individuals who react to gluten. For example, it is possible that small amounts of a wheat sourced ingredient may remain on shared manufacturing equipment even after a thorough cleaning. We therefore recommend that you discuss this with your physician, because consumer safety is of utmost concern to us.
