MAC Retro Matte – Ruby Woo Lipstick

Nothing can explain my love for this particular lipstick. No review can give justice to such a lipstick. Yes I am falling in love with a lipstick, I might sound crazy but you have to give it a shot to test how good it is.

Well I bought the Ruby woo because recently I have heard a lot about it, being that it is very similar to the Lipstick Rihanna launched with MAC, called Riri Woo. I couldn’t find a good price for Riri woo but I did find a good price for Ruby woo, so I got it. I tested it out about a month ago, as I went for some drinks with my girls. I drank, I eat, and I drank some more an this lipstick stayed put all night. I was so impressed, I never had a lipstick which I didn’t have to reapply in a few hours. It stayed put for over 5 hrs If I recall so that is definitely a 5 star when it comes to longevity. It also doesn’t stain the teeth as it happens with most red lipsticks, and I even noticed it doesn’t stain glasses, when I drink.

The colour is a gorgeous red matte lipstick, it doesn’t have an orange tint like most red lipsticks, it is just perfectly matte red. It reminds me of how it was back in the 50’s, I felt like I was channeling my inner Marilyn Monroe. 🙂 Of course the pigmentation is just divine but unfortunately it can be a little bit drying on the lips, so for winter you definitely need to wear a lip balm underneath.

Apart from the colour, I love M.A.C lipstick packaging, being in one of my favorite colour, Black. I also can’t get enough of the lovely smell all M.A.C lipsticks have. If you love red lipsticks, this is definitely a lipstick you have to have.

Well that all for now, I think I shared enough love for this lipstick :P. What do you think about this gorgeous lipstick ? Have you ever tried it?

Wet n Wild Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner

Hey guys,

Today I will review the waterproof Wet n Wild creme eyeliner that I bought a few months ago. It was super hard to find this eyeliner, because they don’t sell wet n wild here in Malta and I wanted it so bad. Especially after reading a lot of good reviews about this product. Many of the reviews mentioned this eyeliner to be as good as the mac gel eyeliner, if not ever better. I never tried the MAC gel eyeliner but might purchase it someday. As I already mentioned this eyeliner was super hard to find but managed to find someone that sold it on eBay.

(Sorry most of the pictures aren’t my own as I forgot to take pictures before I used the product.)

I have to admit I had high expectations about this eyeliner from the reviews I read, so when I tested it after a while, I was a little bit disappointed. Mind you, it is a good eyeliner, very creamy and little goes a long way but I still found it to smudge a little bit. However that happens with most eyeliners so I cannot be too picky, but it also fades after some time especially if you have oily skin. But If you a primer it lasts a good 6-8 hours which is pretty good for such a cheap eyeliner.

The packaging is overall OK, not a fan about the plastic as I find that the plastic makes the product dry faster. It comes with a nice small brush which allows to make a perfectly winged eyes, but the product dries on it very quickly so I have to wash it daily!

Overall it is a good eyeliner so I can’t complain but not super impressed by it, and I think is better than the E.L.F eyeliner. So as you can see I have mixed ideas about this eyeliner, I don’t think it’s bad but neither too good. If it didn’t smudge I would definitely love it, because it does stay for a long time and the black is very dark, just how I like it. But I cannot complain too much, after all it is quite a cheap eyeliner, abroad you might find it for 4 to 5 euros, but It did cost me more to get it to Malta but it was still worth it.

That’s all from me guys, have you tried this eyeliner?
