My first ever M.A.C – #Rubywoo

I am more of a no makeup person, my basic makeup regime consisted of three things – Lactocalamine, lip butter and kohl from The Body Shop  . It was only after getting married that things like blusher, eyeshadows, bronzer etc got added to my beauty lexicon. And even these were limited to organic, neutral shade palettes from The Body Shop  . 

For my lips I have been using lip and cheek velvet stick from The Body Shop  and a nude lipgloss from Maybelline , if I intend to have a shinier look. The thought of using lipstick and that too in a shade of red wasn’t even in my wildest dreams. I like red as a colour and i have admired girls wearing red lipsticks, but I always thought it is a colour meant for a very fair skin tone and you need to be bold enough to flaunt it. But countless reviews from bloggers, beauty tutorials and recommendations from friends coaxed me in trying the Ruby Woo shade from MAC. (Their signature red shade with a matte finish)

I was feeling sceptical even upto the moment of entering the MAC store where I told their beauty assistant about this being my first MAC purchase and how perplexed I am about buying a red coloured lipstick. She was quite helpful and briefed me on the number of options MAC has in red/pink colour, but it was one line she said which sealed the deal for me- Ruby Woo is a shade which suits every possible skin tone and is the Best Buy from MAC. And, I purchased it.

I have been in love with Rubywoo since then. It is a classic-retro, vibrant shade of red with a flawless matte finish and can uplift the look of any outfit- be it western or Indian. Feeling lazy – no need for an elaborate makeup routine, just glide Ruby Woo on your lips and you are ready. It is glamorous but not flashy, just the perfect shade of red. When in doubt, wear Ruby Woo 🙂

After about 3-4 hours of applying, love how it has turned into a demure shade of red

Leave all your preconceived notions behind and try Ruby Woo, it is perfect for all skin- tones.
