RiRi WooThursday, May 09, 2013
My mindset? Well...
a) I don't own Ruby Woo (the inspiration for RiRi Woo). Since they're both so similar & it's not really necessary to have both, I figured I'd just get RiRi Woo & repurchase Ruby Woo when the time came;
b) I hate paying a premium for MAC's "special" packaging (especially if the product isn't unique) but since RiRi Woo didn't have the price markup, I was even more inclined;
I can't remember the last time I participated in such a highly anticipated launch. There was such a long queue. I even thought my browser froze because it took so long. At one point, I had the same page open on my laptop and iPhone, just in case LTE loaded faster than my wifi.
RiRi Woo is a vivid, blue-toned red with a retro matte finish. It's a little drying, but manageable. It's easy to apply as long as your lips are smooth & hydrated. Lasting power is great, minimal touch ups are necessary, and I never worry about it moving once it's on.
While this lipstick isn't anything unique (e.g., MAC Ruby Woo & YSL Rouge Pur Couture #1 come to mind right away), it's still a great colour and suits a wide range of skin tones.

If you missed out on this, it will re-release in June with the second installment of the collection. Special packing, in tow.
Did you pick up RiRi Woo or did you pass? I heard it sold out in three hours. I don't know the average time it takes for collections to sell out, but three hours seems pretty quick.
Ps, remember when I said that if I got RiRi Woo, I wouldn't need to buy Ruby Woo? Well... I still ended up picking up the latter. One, I wanted to compare the two, and two, I love a good red.
Pps, I'm trying out a new comment form (Disqus). I want my blog to be open for anyone to comment, but I have been getting a lot of spam through Blogger's comment platform. Hopefully this will curb it.
