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)?

  1. Red lipstick is so amazing on you! Looks great!

  2. It looks great!

    I need to confess something here, I don’t own a red lipstick. *hides*
    I’m scared to wear them but I want to get one and go for it. I can’t decide between Ruby Woo and RiRi Woo!

    • From what I’ve seen, they are pretty similar! I got Riri Woo because it’s a little redder, and I have heard Ruby Woo is drying, but usually wearing lip balm under matte lipstick usually fixes that! Honestly, reds are so dupeable, that a LE may be a good or bad choice depending on the person purchasing it! I LOVE Limited Editions and most of my MACs are LE, so I guess you have to say it was a must have for me! If you click on my Instagram picture (the 2nd link), that is what it looks like in the light – such a flattering red! Hope that helps, Sarah! <3

  3. I really need to get my hands on this soon! MAC is so expensive over here though!
