#AMonthOfMAC - Ruby Woo

Ruby Woo is another MAC lipstick that a put off purchasing for a really long time, this time because of the horror stories I've read and heard about how drying the lipstick was. I'd always thought it was a beautiful colour though, so I eventually bit the bullet and decided to buy it. As it turns out, I don't think it's as bad as people make it out.

Ruby Woo is a gorgeous blue toned red that I think suits every skintone (it seems to suit everyone I've seen wear it anyway!). I think it's going to be my go to lipstick this year once we reach that Christmas party season, though it would look great all year round.

Like I said, this isn't anywhere near as drying as the stories made it out to be (I was expecting my lips to be peeling by the end of the night!), I actually think All Fired Up is a more drying formula. I'm not saying it's not at all drying though - it is a Retro Matte after all! - so it's definitely wise to moisturise your lips before applying this. This is definitely the most tricky lipstick I have when it comes to application. It tends to drag across the lips a bit (again moisturising will help with this) and definitely takes a while to get the perfect, even application. It's worth it though, because this baby isn't budging at all once you've applied it!
