Finally I got my hands on this one.I had read and heard a lot about Rihanna’s MAC collection.I did not know that when I would actually own this but now yooohoooo..So a few visits and calls to the MAC store turned out to be fruitful .The Holiday collection was launched in december in USA and is available in India too now, for a limited period though.Let me brief you about the collection.
As described by MAC-Rihanna’s latest creative collaboration with M·A·C is a series of stunning looks for lips, eyes and face in shades of metallic majesty and confident colour. This limited-edition collection is encased in exclusive white-pearl packaging with RiRi’s iconic rose gold detailing. Wrapping it all up, the pink metallic sheen of the RiRi ♥ M·A·C Makeup Bag in a quilted design, uniquely Rihanna.
Colour plus texture for the lips that made M∙A∙C famous has three limited-edition shades created by Rihanna. In Retro Matte – the signature red of RiRi Woo. In Matte – the nude taupe of Bad Girl RiRi and fuchsia of Pleasure Bomb. Exclusive white-pearl RiRi ♥ M∙A∙C packaging.
Her name appears on the packaging, and her signature is embossed on the RiRi Woo lipstick case and on the bullets of the summer lipsticks, as well as several of the fall and holiday pieces.
The first product to launch was RiRi Woo, a lipstick inspired by her favorite MAC red, Ruby Woo. Its release coincided with Rihanna’s Diamonds Tour concerts on May 4 and 5 2013 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, where MAC opened a pop-up shop on the first night to showcase the line.
No points for guessing what I bought.I bought the super matte and glamorous RiRi woo.It is inspired by the MAC RubyWoo.MAC RiRi Woo lipstick is a bright true classic red with a strong cool blue undertone and is super super matte almost powdery finish.As the SA said Rihanna likes the matte finish,so the powdery matte finish.The deep red color makes you look glamorous and goes with all skin colors.
The lipstick is super matte and has a waxy texture so it is best applied with a brush because it allows you better control and precision. .The retro matte finish is drier and stiff.It can get stiff as you try to apply and might pull the lips so it is best to use a brush.
It would stay longer than you imagine.The packaging is super chic-white and golden with RiRi written on the exteriors.
RiRi Woo sold out in 3 hours in North America!
Lastly,I absolutely love Rihanna’s signature embossed on the bullet.
