Oh where do I begin?! A red lipstick is a MUST on EVERY woman's collection. Forget what you heard!!!! I think every woman, of every complexion needs to own one. And I'm here today to share with you my absolute favorite red lipstick. And that my friends is none other than the oh so popular Ruby Woo.
I know for a FACT that you've heard about it, read it on a mag, or has seen at least one youtube video where someone was wearing it. I mean this lipstick is just gorgeous. And to top it off it's matte. It doesn't get better than that! This is probably one of MAC's most popular lipsticks.
I understand that not everyone is hip to the matte lipstick idea. Some people have dry lips (which can be taken care of) or they just simply don't like the feeling of a matte lipstick. I understand and I'm with you. Sometimes a matte lip is not the most ideal, but when it comes to red lipsticks I always stick to a matte finish, and here are my reasons why:
1. It lasts longer on the lips
2. Matte lipsticks are less likely to bleed
3. The color is more vibrant
With all honesty reason #2 is really the main reason why I prefer a matte res lipstick and why Ruby Woo is my go to. I just don't like the look of glossy red lips, something about it screams hooker to me (hahah sorry) And not just that but you put a glossy or slightly moisturizing red lipstick on and it will be all over the place, like my teeth and chin and who knows it might even end up on my forehead. So no, I just don't even go there lol
Sadly I don't know how many times I hear women say that red doesn't look good on them, or that it will make their teeth look yellow. I'm sorry but if any color is making your teeth look yellow is because they ARE! Don't blame it on the lipstick, it's probably your daily coffee, tea and or cigarettes consumption. (but I digress). Red is such a beautiful color and it honestly works on everyone.
Ruby woo will literally look good on everyone! Seriously. It's really just about your comfort level. And though this may be really bright and too out there for some people, there's a red lipstick out there for you. You just need to put yourself out there and try some of them out!
Be daring. Wear a red lip! I promise you'll love it!
DO YOU OWN A RED LIPSTICK? IF YOU DON'T WHY NOT?
