Mac Cosmetics Ruby Woo lipstick is as legendary as one of the lipstick’s most loyal fans: Taylor Swift. Since launching in 1999, the vibrant blue-red lip color has become one of the bestselling lipsticks in the world, thanks to its statement-making stop-sign red tone and intense color payoff. It’s earned holy-grail status in the realm of red lipsticks for its flattering cool undertones and its long-lasting formula that makes a statement on anyone who wears it. The lipstick has made cameos on the lips of numerous A-listers (think Gwen Stefani, Rihanna, and Janet Jackson). But Swift is one of the most dedicated Ruby Woo devotees: She’s said to keep the lipstick backstage for on-tour touch-ups.
