Rihanna for MAC Cosmetics

wearing MAC lipstick RiRi Woo
I'm a huge Rihanna fan and love all of her songs! Not a fan of her fashion, but appreciate the fact that she has a bad ass personality. She's the original  "Good Gal Gone Bad" getting into twitter wars with other celebrities, she's real and I like that! On top of that, I actually get told by a lot of people that I look like her. lol

So when I saw that MAC was launching four collections this year with Rihanna I was just so excited! Her makeup always looks amazing and we're the same skin tone so we can wear the same colors. I'm a neutral lipstick kind of gal and was afraid to wear red lipstick, but last year where I went to an event where I wore a red Herve Leger bandage dress and thought I needed red lipstick to match. I have to say it felt weird, and too loud for me to wear red, but slowly over the past year I've warmed up to trying red lipstick again. 


MAC RiRi Woo lipstick is based on the original and beloved MAC Ruby Woo (up until now it was Rihanna's to go to red). Her name is engraved in the lipstick. It's only available for sale online but the good news is shipping is free of anything from her collection and it ships fast! When it went on sale last month the shade sold out in 3 hours and crashed MAC's website! It's also sold at her concerts. Like those people I'm sure, I just got it because it's Rihanna, I was a little skeptical since I don't wear red lipstick, but seeing the color on her I was sold and decided to give it a chance. 

The color is matte so it's a bit drying so you need to put chapstick on first. I have to say after I got over the shock of the brightness of a bold unusual color for me, it wowed me with its vibrancy. With my blonde hair I feel I'm pulling a Gwen Stefani look. lol I think I'll be wearing this on my trip to Spain.
Looking forward to getting her eye shadow palate this fall! 

Having been a loyal MAC user for years, this is how I store my makeup. I got the idea from watching Keeping up With the Kardasians,  Kim stores her makeup in something similar to this but bigger. As you can see only nude lipsticks and one orange.
