Mac now has joined forces with the lovely Rihanna! She has a few collections set to be released over the next few months. RiRi Woo is the first item to be launched. Rihanna was a major fan of Mac's permanent and well known lipstick Ruby Woo. So the popstar teamed up with Mac and made her own version. It's a perfect shade red, and looks amazing on may skin tones! It was an online only item, and I had missed out. It sold out in 3 hours!! BUT she set up a Mac Pop Up Shop at her concert that I attended, so I was able to grab a few :-)
RiRi's signature on the tube...
Now many, such as myself wondered how similar RiRi Woo was compared to Ruby Woo. I swatched the 2 together (below) and immediately noticed the difference. RiRi Woo is a tad bit darker than Ruby Woo. Now that was when swatched. When worn, I honestly could not tell the difference. The lipstick is a retro matte formula. And while it applied really dry (more than Ruby Woo) once on it felt great on the lips. Not a drying type of feel, and extremely light on the lips. The staying power was also great!
On to the swatches...
