A bold red lip is arguably the most iconic beauty look of all time. Though other beauty trends come and go, a strong red lip is an enduring beauty statement that has withstood the test of time.

However, with so many shades available, finding your perfect hue can seem like an impossible task.

That’s where MAC’s Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo comes in…

This one shade of true-red is so popular, it was Australia’s number one bestselling lipstick for the last financial year in units sold in Australian department stores.

And we are not surprised. This gorgeous, matte cherry red lipstick is universally flattering on every skin tone. Plus, with its blue undertones, it has the added bonus of instantly making your teeth appear whiter and brighter.

Beauty lore has it that the versatile shade has also built up a formidable celeb following, boasting the likes of Priyanka Chopra, Gwen Stefani, Taylor Swift, Rita Ora, Miley Cyrus and Rihanna as loyal fans. In fact, Rihanna loves it so much that in 2013, she collaborated with MAC on her own limited edition spinoff of the shade, naming it Riri Woo.

But that's not all... If you're keen to try MAC's Ruby Woo, we've got good news. MAC has now permanently dropped the price from $36 to $30 on all lipsticks!
