Product Purchased by IMBB

Hola bonita chica’s!

Boy does it feel good to start writing reviews for IMBB again after my little hiatus. You guys make my job so much fun and this additional incentive of sponsored products is like one of the two things a girl could ask for- the other being diamonds of course! Haha! So here I have another sponsored product guys, a fantastic lip gloss from MAC and I cannot wait to tell you all more about it.  You can read the lipstick variant of MAC Ruby Woo here.

My Experience with MAC Ruby Woo Lip Glass:

Now these lip glosses, or glasses, are great in themselves, but this one stands out even more because MAC took a fantastic lipstick shade “Ruby Woo” and converted it into a lip gloss! The lipstick is a matte finish one and you can use this lip gloss on its own, over a lip pencil to further intensify its lasting time and colour and use it directly over the lipstick to convert a shade which is matte finish, into a high power shine finish. Brilliant! I cannot stop ga-ga-ing over these lip gloss shades that MAC has come out with because it gives you so many different looks that you can accomplish!

I personally love the Ruby Woo lipstick and I love its shade of red and even though I had never thought I would need a gloss in the same shade, I have been surprised with how often I have been reaching for this. This lip gloss is so super pigmented that you can just lightly dab this across your lips for a flush of colour or you can really layer this on for a blood red bold lip.

This particular shade does bleed a little bit and I noticed this after I had it on for about 15 minutes. I think using a clear or red lip liner would help with this problem. I also love to just dab this colour on the center of my lips when I try to get some use out of (my previously reviewed) Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color in Hibiscus Haven, to get that two toned pink and red effect on my lips. This colour however does not settle in fine lines at all.

Also this lip glass is not sticky at all and neither does it feel heavy on your lips. It does transfer to whatever your lips touch, so you have to be careful with that. I love that there are no “chemical” smells to this lip gloss and it feels good to have it on. Being a lip gloss, it only lasts on your lips for 2-3 hours after which you will need to reapply. It does not leave a stain on your lips as it fades. It is also easily removable by dabbing tissue on your lips if you do not have make up remover nearby!

Would I Repurchase MAC Ruby Woo Lip Glass?
This is the first time I have been able to sport a full shiny bold red lip, so I would definitely be repurchasing!

Would I Recommend MAC Ruby Woo Lip Glass?
Absolutely! Ruby Woo is a tested and tried great shade for the Indian skin tone, so a lip gloss in the same shade is genius! Try it out in store the next time 🙂

  1. That’s a hot shade no doubt since it is Ruby Woo’s version, but being the matte lover that I am, would anyday prefer the lipstick over this. You are rocking it though! 🙂

  2. Ruby Woo in a gloss form!!!!! The gloss lovers would be in seventh heaven after reading this review 🙂 The gloss is looking equally attractive on you Samrita. I am not a gloss lover because they are bad to my cutleries 🙁 Although the gloss is suuuuperb but i’d still stick to the lippie 😀
