[unpaid/sample] MAC’s Ruby Woo is a modern icon in lipsticks. There are just a handful of lipsticks that others know exactly what you’re talking about by name alone. Cherries In The Snow is another that springs to mind and Black Honey perhaps (any others please drop into comments). To be honest, the matte texture has always ruled it out – other than very occasional wear – for me but when I see anyone wearing it I have a little pang of envy.
On 7th October, you’ll get to meet Ruby’s Crew, comprising all new Ruby products – all Ruby Woo, all matte but in different matte finishes. If you’re a fan of matte, and fussy about your finishes this is an epic level of artistry detail as well as giving some lively typography art on the packaging. In December (and this is exciting for me!) a non-matte version of Ruby Woo bullet lipstick and another non-specified as yet non-matte product which surely can only be a gloss (please!).
So, there is the original Ruby Woo Retro Matte lipstick, with a long last, full coverage look, a new Ruby New Powder Kiss lipstick, then Ruby Phew! Retro Matte Liquid Lip Colour in a high pigment liquid for a velvet matte finish and Ruby Boo new Liquid Powder Kiss in long stay 10 hour wear formula and a soft focus finish. They’re all £19.50 each.
The first is Powder Kiss Liquid, second is Retro Matte, followed by Powder Kiss Lipstick and the original Ruby ????
I truly love the look of all of these – they’re so vibrant and easily found in a sea of black lipstick cases. Ruby Woo has personality aplenty but even more so now with stand out cases. I think they’re limited edition so if you want one you’ll need to be quick on it on the 7th. I’ve got a few more MAC updates to come – including their Advent – over the next week or so, but I’ve noticed that they’ve got a very good sale on right now.
