Dupe? MAC Ruby Woo vs e.l.f matte lip Rich Red

mac ruby woo e.l.f matte lip color rich red
MAC Ruby Woo is one of MAC's popular lipsticks and is basically every woman's go to red lipstick. Ruby Woo is a beautiful blue based red that looks great on all skin tones and it retails for $16. I stumbled upon this e.l.f lippie on pinterest that said that Rich Red is a perfect dupe for Ruby Woo so I had to try it out. Rich Red retails for just $3 and I paid only $1 because I found it at Dollar Tree.

Ruby Woo's downfall is that it is very drying on the lips because it is a true matte- its like sandpaper on your lips. Rich Red is a blue based red and although e.l.f calls this a matte lip color, it is not a true matte and therefore it is nearly not as drying as Ruby Woo. Rich Red is very easy to apply and very pigmented.

Ruby Woo and Rich Red are very similar in color however Rich Red is definitely not a matte finish. You can achieve a matte finish simply by blotting your lips or applying a little bit of translucent powder on top. I love both and I find that Rich Red is very similar to Ruby Woo on the lips.
