Rihanna has recently collaborated with MAC, and as you have heard, the sales were crazy because 1) they were online-only, 2) the long hours at the waiting room. I purchased mine the first time on May 2nd, and I checked out within 15 minutes. The 2nd time, I bought three lipsticks: Riri Woo (a backup), Riri Boy, and Heaux and it took me a little over 2 hours and I was on 4 devices! Ridiculous! Would I do it again? Yes, only because I’m a lipstick junkie and I wanted the above lipsticks because they are retro matte, which I ADORE.

Riri Woo is described as a matte cool red, and is comparable to Ruby Woo but I cannot back that up as I do not own the latter. Shall we go ahead and take a look at Riri Woo?


It’s a stunning red, I must say! Red is classic and goes on EVERY skintone! Each Rihanna-inspired MAC has her “signature”, Riri on the bullet.

I would recommend wearing a lip balm or lip primer underneath to keep your lips from feeling dry. It’s not uncomfortable to wear at all and lasts pretty good even after drinks and food. A smokey eye paired with this lip color would make anyone swoon. It’s such an awesome red. If you want it, I suggest running to, as it is STILL available, while the other 2 are sold out. (I think they will all make a comeback again in the Fall/Holiday Season in the whopping 16-piece Rihanna-inspired collection.


What do you think? Is this a worthy red?

Be honest, did you snag 1 or two (or more)?
