Wearing MAC RiRi Woo Lipstick
The first launch of the highly anticipated MAC and Rihanna collaboration is RiRi Woo lipstick, a remix of MAC’s classic Ruby Woo. On the internet streets there is a lot of debate going on about how different RiRi Woo is from Ruby Woo. Continue reading

That Rihanna reign just won’t let up! In case you gave up social media for Lent you may have missed the big news: Riri <3 MAC! MAC teamed up with Rihanna for a collaboration that yielded a total of 31 items to be released over a series of collections throughout the year. Head over to WWD for all of the tea.
I am so excited for this! Rihanna’s makeup is always on point and I have recreated a few of her looks in the past. Can’t wait to see the results of one of my beauty icons collaborating with one of my favorite brands. What are your thoughts?
P.S. Can somebody hook me up? The impending pandemonium is killing me already lol.
My picks from the MAC Apres Chic and Strength collections plus some bonus goodies at the end.
Thanks to all of the requests to film a tutorial on the makeup I wore in my Shop MAC, Cook MAC haul video! It is a very simple look and I used a few items from the collection to put it together. If you have any suggestions for similar eye shadows that can be used for when the Call Me Bubbles quad is long gone let us know in the comments below.

MAC’s Shop MAC, Cook MAC collection is a “treat” for lovers of bright colored makeup like myself. I was most excited about the return of their Tendertones since the one I got during their previous launch fell into a sewer one night in NYC. I appreciate having full lips but their dryness is a plague. Tendertones provide a slick layer of gloss to protect them from the elements that is not sticky and smells like candy. Yum! I was surprised that I ended up getting so many other lip products. My picks are the coral Watch Me Simmer and the vibrant pink Quick Sizzle lipsticks. You can’t go wrong with the Kissable Lipcolours either, I love all three colors in my stash and Woo Me has been a staple in my bag for the past few weeks. It is like 2N lipglass sans stickyness and you better believe I bought a backup. The eye shadow quads are nothing to write home about when you have a freakish collection of eye shadows. I ended up getting Call Me Bubbles anyway, which is gorgeous, but I am pretty sure I could come up with similar colors somewhere in my stash (the frosty rust color called Brash was part of the Spice Chocolate quad released a few years ago).
What I hauled (or already had):
- Innocence, Beware!
- Watch Me Simmer
- Quick Sizzle
- Optimistic Orange
- Restores Dazzle!
