Rihanna Hearts MAC RiRi Woo Lipstick Review, Swatches and Photos

Rihanna has long been the queen of red lipstick, which makes sense that the first product from her collaboration with M·A·C Cosmetics is a red lipstick, RiRi Woo.

Rihanna Hearts MAC RiRi Woo Lipstick review
Rihanna Hearts MAC RiRi Woo Lipstick

Inspired by MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick – Rihanna’s favorite red – RiRi Woo is a bright cool-toned red with matte finish. Viva Glam I is darker. Ruffian Red is brighter and more orange. Russian Red and Charmed I’m Sure are both just a tinge darker.

The lipstick comes in a Retro Matte formula, the truest matte from MAC. Compared to the regular matte formula, this felt slightly drier and stiffer. However, the pigmentation was incredible and I was able to get opaque coverage with just one swipe. The wear was also up to par with a good 3-4 hours and staining.
