By now if you were quick on the draw last week when RiRi Woo went on sale, I’m sure you’ve received your lipstick. A lot of people have been buzzing about the differences between it and its inspired original Ruby Woo. I received a complimentary tube thanks to Motions Hair last night at Rihanna‘s sold out Diamonds World Tour concert stop in Brooklyn (where I SWORE Kanye and Jay-Z were going to come out…lol) and since I had my staple Ruby Woo I decided to see what differences I saw in the two.
Um, there really isn’t any other than Rihanna’s signature etched into the lipstick’s tube in RiRi Woo. But we knew this already, right? It’s the same price, same size, and other than a slight—VERY slight difference in undertone (I saw people say RiRi Woo is bluer but I actually see slightly more orange in RiRi Woo both on me and others in my Motions Hair concert party group), it’s pretty much the same lipstick. I also found RiRi Woo to be just as drying on the lips as Ruby Woo (see also How to Make Ruby Woo More Wearable). If you’re a Ruby Woo fan or a Rihanna fan, I’m sure you’re down for the cause anyway. If you missed it the first time around, fear not—it’ll be back again in June and from my understanding also with more RiRi Loves MAC collections due out several times this year.
