There's just something undeniably special about red lipstick. The shade, in all its many hues, can elevate any beauty look, and the color has certainly come through with some iconic moments in makeup history. Finding your new favorite rose-colored lip product isn't always easy, but one brand has received continuous praise for its universally flattering red. The dazzling red-blue hue of Ruby Woo from M.A.C. Cosmetics has never gone out of style, and if you're looking to update your makeup bag or try a new color, this product is one you have to try.
As the experts have explained to Teen Vogue, hunting down that illusive right shade of red can be a little hard. Lori Taylor-Davis, Global Pro Lead Artist for Smashbox Cosmetics recommends beginning with your skin tone, and then working from there. Although there's always going to be shade of red that's best suited for your skin tone, Ruby Woo has received continual praise for its universally flattering coloring.
When Teen Vogue previously polled the makeup experts, Ruby Woo was the one red lipstick that was recommended every time. As the makeup artists explained, "Ruby Woo is a very good staple red that anyone could pull off. If you're going to invest in a single red, this one won't let you down."
We get it, straying from your favorite tried and true shade of red can seem a little scary, but Ruby Woo is one you have to see to believe. Luckily, social media users have been more than happy to sing the lipstick's praises, taking to Instagram to share their experience with usage.
