A slightly hypocritical purchase as I find Rihanna extremely overrated and obnoxious but I’m a sucker for a MAC lipstick and leaving the house without a bright red or deep shade of purple pasted across ma’ lips is a little daunting nowadays. The packaging resembles a bullet with the traditional MAC shape and rose gold colour; fierce packaging for equally as fierce colours.
MAC lipsticks have the reputation that although a little pricey, completely justified by the quality of the product. I love the matte finish of these lipsticks as gloss/shine on lip products have never appealed to me. Unfortunately the matte formulation makes them extremely drying on the lips and on times harsh to apply, this is to be expected of any lip product that has a matte finish though. However the lasting power on them is so impressive it takes the edge off dried out lips at the end of the day. I rarely need to re-apply and when I do it’s normally just an excuse to admire the packaging for the billionth time.
As you can tell by the pictures, RiRi Woo is a vibrant red with slight blue undertones. Also made clear by the pictures, it’s already a well loved product. You also don’t need to worry about it bleeding out which is always a bonus for someone like me who manages to lose any suitable lip liner to match this colour.
The second colour I picked up is Talk That Talk which is a dark deep purple and perfect for colder months. Admittedly a little darker on the lip than first anticipated and possibly the most daring lipstick I own but I’ve learnt to love it and plan on using it a tone this Winter.
Sorry if this has been a little more wordy than what my normal posts include, I just wanted to mix it up a little and share this review.
