|MAC Ruby Woo is a blue toned cool matte red|
Coming to the review :
PRICE – Rs 900/- for 1.8 grams.It is the same trademark black oval bullet with Mac written on it just like the full size version.
PROS of Little MAC RUBY WOO Retro Matte Lipstick
LONG wearing formula – It easily lasts 4 hours without peeling or patchiness but with eating and drinking,there is slight fading .
MATTE finish – Since I have full lips, I prefer matte formulae,also non glossy ones look more appropriate for office wear (Yes, some ladies do wear red to the office !).So matte is my favourite finish.
INTENSE colour payoff – One good swipe of the wand gives good colour and two is almost more than enough for prolonged wear.
GREAT coverage, HIDES pigmentation – The colour shows off quite well even on my pigmented lips unlike many reds that show a different tone on pigmented lips or do not cover the pigmentation well .

Great for all Skin TONES – Ruby Woo is a neutral blue toned cool red that does justice to both warm and cool complexions (yellow and pink undertones ).
Good for Occasional wear – This small size is great if you want to use a this bold red shade seldom like me.
The PRICE – The price and the fact that I shall be using this less often kept me away from it so long,but actually this mini version is more pocket friendly as it costs Rs 900/- compared to the full size Rs 2200/- one.
Its CUTE !!
We women have a thing for stuff that come in small sizes ( maybe that’s why we love babies and puppies ) so I mostly find myself hoarding up on tiny, cute things.
CONS of Little MAC RUBY WOO Retro Matte Lipstick
DRYNESS – The long wearing formula is quite drying like most matte lipsticks and the MAC Sales Assistant recommends to exfoliate and moisturise the lips(or use MAC Prep and Prime Lip primer before the lipstick) to ensure a smooth application and no feathering (settling in between the lip lines) later as the lipstick becomes dry.
POCKET PINCHING – Compared to some other brands like Lakme, Maybelline or Faces , this mini version is still more costly than the full size version of some other brands .
SIZE MATTERS – Since it is so tiny,getting a good grip can be a problem specially because the bullet is so tiny. You might need to use a lip brush to apply it and also to utilize the complete product.If you are a die hard lipstick fan unlike me then you will need a refill soon.
Thankfully MAC has a refill policy – for every six empty packs returned you can get a brand new product for free !
So save the empties !
|This is how tiny the Little MAC RUBY WOO is-it fits right into my palm|
FINAL VERDICT – I rate it a 4/5.
I am very happy with this product – Great colour,coverage and colour pay off but its does make my lips dry and burns a hole in the pocket.
But that’s not stopping me and neither should it stop you because it is such a gorgeous colour.
So go ahead Girls and paint the town Red or should I say paint the town “RUBY RED”!

Although I prefer nude color, I like the red color, so elegant!
That is a beautiful shade of lipstick. I hadn't heard about it before reading your post – I will have to see how it looks on me someday…
This is one of my favorite colors from MAC. It's honestly a classic for me. You can never go wrong with a nice red matte lip.
I love the refill policy. That is awesome that you can get a free one.
That looks like a pretty MAC Cosmetics lipstick color. I love the reds that MAC Cosmetics has.
Looks like some really great stuff! I might try it someday.
I am more into pinks and neutrals and will have to check their shades out!
Looks like a really cute lipstick to have, it is small and so cute. The benefits are promising and I am happy to know that it lasts long. Such a must have.
I love bright red lipsticks they are so eye catchy! This one is gorgeous! I have never tried mac but only heard good things!
I actually have one of this Mac lipstick. I like the matte finish and don't dry up my lips. Sometimes on winter time I used lip gloss on top of it.
This lipstick looks so pretty! I love it
Ruby woo retro is one of my most favorite lipstick. It can make the whole look you don't need anything much after wearing this.
