MAC Riri Woo Swatches, Comparisons, Review, and Giveaway


MAC Riri Woo is a cool toned red lipstick that was created to pay homage to Ruby Woo, another popular red lipstick created by MAC that is a well known cult favorite due to the fact that it’s universal on all skin tones.

MAC Riri Woo is a tad cooler than Ruby Woo and more blue based. Riri Woo also appears to be richer in color. It is as drying as Ruby Woo though it is a Retro Matte (which is supposed to be more moisturizing than your traditional matte). 

Pigmentation is good and at this time I cannot tell you how long it lasts because UPS just dropped this bad boy off about an hour ago.


Here’s a comparison between Riri Woo and Ruby Woo (Riri Woo is the 2nd one) You can tell the difference because Ruby Woo is warmer.



Then I busted out all the reds I own: Ruby Woo, Riri Woo, Russian Red, and Ruffian Red (IN THAT ORDER)


Left to right: Ruby Woo, Riri Woo, Russian Red, Ruffian Red




Then I put it on:

  • Maybelline BB Cream
  • NARS Concealer
  • Urban Decay Naked 2 on my lids
  • Urban Decay Binge on the waterline
  • Maybelline Rocket Volum’ Express on the lashes
  • Do I have to tell you what’s on my lips? I hope not






And then I bought two cause I thought of yall. I’m giving it away on my Instagram page (@glitteryglossy)  Search the hashtag #GGGRiriWoo to track it down and enter Smile Good luck! <3

  • Jazzy Belle

    It looks good on you. Would you recommend it for those of us that use MAC Red as their go-to?

    • FairyGlammother

      Yes 🙂

  • The Retro Matte is actually dryer than a regular matte. It’s supposed to be like an old school matte lipstick when they were basically just pigment.
