Nyma Tang M.A.C. Lipstick has Dropped!

M.A.C. Cosmetics has clearly made a name for itself when it comes to red lipsticks as their cult favorite blue red Ruby Woo is favorited by many including myself, so when it comes to red hues we trust M.A.C. wholeheartedly.

Nyma Tang is a well known South Sudanese Beauty YouTuber who recently dropped a collaboration with M.A.C. Cosmetics. Nyma gave us a sneak peek of her creation on her Instagram back in January of herself in M.A.C Cosmetics’ Lab formulating her lipstick.

What made Nyma Tang so popular and relatable is that she frequently discusses the everyday struggles for women of darker complexion to find basic makeup staples like foundations, concealers, lipsticks, just to name a few, that will compliment their skin tone and made sure that this lipstick is one that is universally flattering for every skin tone. And that she did!

Nine months later, the Nyma Tang lipstick was born and can now be purchased on M.A.C Cosmetics website.  It’s a gorgeous red with warm undertones and a matte finish that’s right up my alley.

There was a RiRi Woo Lipstick? Where have I been?

I’ve been wanting to try out something different from MAC to switch it up a little bit and keep it fresh so I did some research on makeup lovers favorite lipsticks from MAC whether old or new and I can’t believe what I found!

How come I did not know about this?

This was a collaboration done back in 2013 with Rihanna as part of a holiday collection. This came up on my search as a favorite by many and I was floored because I missed out.

Riri Woo, like Ruby Woo is also a retro matte finish but with a much cooler undertone.

I definitely have my go to shades from MAC which are my red retro matte Ruby Woo, Lady Danger, one of the hottest orange shades and All Fired Up, my favorite pink.

These shades have complimented my skin tone in the best way possible and they are gonna be in my collection until they’re discontinued, hopefully not. The struggle…

I wonder if I can still get my hands on this Riri Woo lipstick?

Probably not!

The next shade that came up is Instigator which is a more current shade. It’s a deep plum color which is more fall appropriate but fall is right around the corner so it wouldn’t be so bad to get it now. I’ll keep this one on my list for now.

Best Red Lipsticks for Valentine 2018

5 Best Red Lipsticks for Valentine 2018.

Looking for that perfect shade of red lipstick that will impress your partner this Valentine’s? Well here’s the scoop on some of my favorite red lipsticks that you can try. They range from different price points so there’s something for everyone.

Red lipstick is no doubt a fashion statement all in itself and it might be a little intimidating at first but it is the one shade that can instantly elevate your sexy factor with little to no effort.

Whether you’re planning a romantic getaway with your beau or a fancy dinner date night, you better not be caught without some sexy red lips. It is an essential part of a perfect Valentine.

Besides, there is no celebrating Valentine without some red lips.

Without further ado, let’s get to it shall we?

Revlon Rich Girl Red

This lipstick was so moisturizing it felt almost like a balm to me. It has a very radiant finish as well which is an added bonus. This will easily create that glamorous look you are going for. This can be found at your local drugstore.

Milani Matte Kiss

This is a darker red and like the name, has a matte finish.  It does has a very smooth finish and I would say it’s more of a semi matte finish as it felt like it had a little bit of moisture as I glided it on. The wear time on this was 5 hours for me. Find it at your local drugstore.

NYX BLS15

Another drugstore brand, this lipstick is creamy with an easy application. Very pigmented and also feels very light on the lips. One application would be enough as it has a very high impact color.

Ruby Woo by MAC

Of course I couldn’t leave this one off the list. Even though I wish it was more moisturizing on the lips, it’s my all time favorite and that’s never gonna change anytime soon.

LipSense Flygirl

If you’re  thinking that your man is gonna wine and dine you this Valentine and don’t want to be bothered with your lipstick transferring or don’t want to be reapplying your lipstick every so often then this is definitely the lipstick for you. The only thing you would have to reapply is the lip gloss to keep that shine throughout the day. You can never go wrong with this as this is like the Ferrari of lipsticks when it comes to wear time.
