MAC Ruby Woo is considered by many to be the holy grail red lipstick. A bright red matte with blue undertones. I have a love/ hate relationship with it. I love the color but hate the matte formula. It is extremely drying, I mean make your lips peel drying. For that reason I don’t wear it much but I decided to pull it out and take it for a spin.

MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick
I have seen Ruby Woo worn on many different skin tones and I believe it will work on anyone, especially if you have cool undertones in your skin. I have warm undertones and it still works for me. Brown-skinned beauties who are afraid of red lips, stop being afraid… this will work for you! It pairs perfectly with NYX Hot Red lipliner. I always put on a lipbalm first to combat the dryness some, and if you have dry patches you should use a lip scrub first or they will show through.
Ruby Woo retails for $14.50 but I’ve got a dupe for you and it will only cost about $2.99, Wet ‘n Wild Megalast Lipstick in 911D Stoplight Red…
Ruby Woo, Stoplight Red
Stoplight Red is also a matte and the perfect dupe for MAC Ruby Woo, but it is a bit more moisturizing. I actually like it better.
