Red Lips: MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick

Whilst I was bored I decided to the try the MAC Ruby Woo lipstick I have in my make up kit. I have never used this colour on myself before but it is a staple red lipstick in my kit as it gives the classic matte red look and it looks even better on fair to medium skin tones. Whenever I use Ruby Woo I always team it with MACs Cherry lip liner as they work very well together.

Anyway here is my first attempt at wearing the Ruby Woo lipstick on myself, what do you guys think? I like the colour but I do feel it comes off a little brighter on me than on others which is probably due to the fact my lips are massive which draws attention to them.

What I used:
MAC Select Cobver-Up Concealer – NC 50 (to shape eyebrows) & NC 45 (under eyes)
MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural – Dark
MAC Blush – Loverush (very little dab on cheeks)
MAC Shaping Powder – Accentaute (to highlight cheeks)
Benefit Brow Zings Shaping Powder – Dark
MAC Paint Pot – Groundwork (base)
MAC e/s: Cork (lids), Concrete (outter corner & crease), Era (inner corner), Shroom (brow bone)
MAC Fluidline – Blacktrack
L’Oreal Million Lashes Mascara
Salonsystem Naturalash Falsies – Medium
Benefit Bad Gal
MAC Lip Liner – Cherry (outline & filled in lips)
MAC Lipstick – Ruby Woo

    i love it! =) If you think it's too bright line your lips in a deeper red shade and blend it inward. Works like a charm!

    Thanks girlies xx

    @Bird I will deffo try that trick and see if it tones it down for me.

  10. Believe it or not but it looks brighter because of your skin complexion which is warm toned, a deeper darker red would look alot more suttle.

  11. it looks soooo beautiful!

    o'm dark skinned (slightly darker than you) and i love it! but i have fairly large lips too, so when i wear it, some people compliment me, but others just… stare…

    but i like that it stands out. that's the whole point of wearing red in the first place. =]

    @I LOVE My Fro: Thanks for the tip, I hate how it looks so bright on me. I am now on the hunt for a matte red thay is darker.

    @Have a Nice Dieye – I love this lippie on darker skin its looks great. I might try toning the colour down with a darker lip liner as was suggested to me x

    Does Ruby Woo have a blue undertone, or more of an orange?

    Your lips are your lips, they are the right size for your face, and that makes them perfect…perfectly lovely.
