Woo Woo Woo, RIRI WOO! I waited an HOUR for this lippie. No kidding. I sat here like a complete weirdo and stared at the MAC website for an HOUR to get this lippie into my cart while a screen flashed “Do not refresh or leave this page because your lippie is being added to your cart” or something like that. Basically, you’re in line, don’t move or you lose out on your RiRi Woo.
Luckily, I scored a MAC RiRi Woo Lipstick just in the nick of time, as they sold out in around 4 hours!
RiRi Woo is described as a cool red retro matte. It’s definitely drier to apply than a matte, but isn’t uncomfortable to wear. In fact, I quite like it. It’s super pigmented and insanely opaque. I lined out my lips with the tip of this lippie before I filled them in and didn’t have any trouble, though you DO have to be careful with application and for Pete’s sake exfoliate before you wear it.
Is it like Ruby Woo (of which it was inspired)? Yep. I don’t have Ruby Woo here to swatch them side by side, but based off of swatches I’m seeing online they are almost twinsies.
The packaging is your usual MAC black bullet but you have a signature ala Rihanna etched on the actual lipstick inside. This is totally her lip, btw. I put it on and was all diva superstar like. For real.
MAC RiRi Woo Lipstick retails for $15.00 and will be available again with the Rihanna Loves MAC collection, which as of this post is slated to release in June 2013.
