Riri Loves MAC Lipstick in Riri Woo and Talk The Talk Review
Here's a review on Riri Loves Mac Lipstick in RiRi Woo and Talk The Talk.
Bought From: MAC, SM Aura
Other Locations: Limited Edition. You can still try MAC Online, CCO Outlets, and other legit online sellers
When RiRi Loves MAC was launched here, I prepared a chant before going to the mall and it goes like this: "No buy mode. No buy mode. No buy mode." Feeling confident with that mantra, I wandered around SM Aura and suddenly found myself right in front of the MAC store and there was RiRi's collection, calling out to me and singin' "Take A Bow." "No buy mode. No buy mode. No buy mode", I said. I peeked at the lipstick counter and saw RiRi Woo and Talk The Talk and I was like" Bajeezas. Why do you have to make super awesome colors, MAC?!" So my No Buy Mode chat went like:

To cut to the chase, my mantra failed, but I was in a state of Nirvana for I now have the famed colors from RiRi's collection. I was also very lucky because these two were the very last stocks left. It was for me, and that's the reason why I was there right before it went sold out. (Oh yeah I'm justifying LOL!)
RIRI LOVES MAC LIPSTICKS IN DETAIL
Damdamdiram-damdamdiramram. What else can I say about the packaging aside from gorgeous? I like it so much because it's in Rose Gold, it looks pretty classy, and I can spot it easily in the sea of lip products I own. RiRi Loves MAC is limited edition, unfortunately, but I hope you can still find someone or some store that sells it!

RIRI LOVES MAC LIPSTICKS IN ACTION
Riri's signature was carved all over the lipstick.
Riri Woo is a bright red shade with a hint of orange. Texture is not totally Retro Matte, but not as satin-y initially as MAC's regular matte lipstick.
Thought you guys will appreciate a comparison pic because the first time you see RiRi Woo, you'll wonder and say "How is it so special?" 'Ere goes: Russian Red is a tad darker and seems a truer red, while Ruby Woo is richer (in person) and the orange undertone is more prominent. Riri Woo is like a mash-up of the two: It has the glowing redness of Russian Red and the vintage orangey hue of Ruby Woo-I could even see a hint of pink in there.
There are some gals who dislike the strong and serious appeal of Russian Red, and the vampy 'femme fatale' aura of Ruby Woo so RiRi Woo is the perfect in-between shade. How I wish MAC will make this permanent because by far, it's their red lipstick shade that looks absolutely stunning on warm skin tones.
TALK THE TALK
Talk The Talk is a deep burgundy shade with a hint of wine.
This color is sooo Fall! It's like a combination of MAC's Rebel and Diva lipsticks. It takes a lot of guts to pull off this shade though and thankfully, I have guts. :D
My only problem with it is, it's very draggy and finish is very patchy. After 30 minutes of wearing it, I could see solid, burgundy lines on my bottom lip. :/ Best way to apply it is by using a lip brush-exfoliating your lips and prepping it with lip balm will also help big time. Oh, RiRi Woo is a lil' drying too.
Despite the cons I've mentioned, I'm still in love with these lippies. I'm wearing Talk The Talk tonight in my Halloween Date Night with the BF!
