My first ever MAC product graced my teen make up bag back in 2004 (oh god it’s been a decade). A friend’s mum saw my love for her lippie and treated me with a trip to the MAC (department store) counter back home to get something conservative for this young beauty enthusiast. Of course I went with a dupe for Star Nova – a pearlescent, mauve. This was back when the lipglosses were in squeeze tubes. Le sigh…
Fast forward four years and 19-year-old me decided it was time to take a walk on the wild side. My first lipstick was Ruby Woo. The perfect matte, red lippie that lasted a while on the lips — it was everything I dreamed of.
Ruby Woo is still my favourite shade of red that the brand has to offer. It’s a healthy blend of Russian Red and Lady Danger. Seven years strong and I’ve always preferred a matte lip over a glossy one.
How about you?
