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.
I thought that there was no drugstore lipstick that could make me feel this way, but after trying these metallic lipsticks from NYX, I was like WHOA!
The power of the pigment in these lip creams had me shook.
Back in the day when my coins were scarce, they’re still scarce now but back then they were a lot more scarce, NYX was one of my favorite makeup brands but somehow I got into the hype of trying other brands and I slowly forgot about them.
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.
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.
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.
With all these options make sure to dress to impress this Valentine’s.
I’m back and I’m running wild. It’s been a while since I wrote a post but I’ve been doing a lot of makeup cleaning and organizing that I couldn’t wait to show you what I found at the bottom of my makeup drawer. Read More »
Now that Fall is upon us, I’ve been gathering all my fall shades in my nail polishes and my lipsticks. I often find myself asking “What color lipstick should I wear?” For those of you who don’t know, I normally put an outfit together based on the lip color that I choose. Since we’re also around the corner from Halloween, I though that I could throw in some Fall/Halloween colors into my outfits without looking like a hot mess.
Lady Danger has a reddish orange tone to it that gives you that sexy look while making it perfect for the Fall/Halloween theme with the orange tint that you get from it. You can easily pair this with neutral colors so that your outfit and accessories are not competing with each other.
I also paired it with a beautiful orange red/orange shade nail polish from e.l.f. cosmetics called Mango Madness. This shade of nail polish is a great alternative from the usual black nail polish (not that black nail polish isn’t sexy) that we use for Halloween but it doesn’t hurt to change it up a little with some vibrancy.

To kick off my Memorial Day Weekend, I was rocking the red, white and blue, but who wasn’t right? Even though I didn’t do anything major or had any fantastic plans, I had my own little way of celebrating with my lipstick. Ruby Woo that is! There was just no other way to make it memorable without my classic, statement red lip. In my mind, that is just the ultimate and only lipstick you’ll need, but then again that’s just me.
Nevertheless, I had fun dressing up and putting together my makeup this weekend. I normally just keep my makeup simple especially if I’m wearing a bold lip color because I don’t want my makeup and overall look to be competing with each other. I paired my makeup with some cute button up tops and my red nail polish to bring everything together.
Now that Memorial Day has officially come and gone, I have to say that I’m excited to be heading into summer time with new and exciting lipsticks and trends that I can’t wait to try. I’ll probably be taking a little break from my Ruby Woo, but I’m not making any promises.
Hope you enjoyed your Memorial Day Weekend. How did you guys celebrate? Give me some feedback in the comments below.
So I was going through my lipstick storage and came across a tube of Lady Danger by MAC that I had bought last year around the same time I got my Ruby Woo. I remember instantly falling in love with Ruby Woo that I wore it everywhere and maybe that’s why my Lady Danger was left in the shadows but not anymore, it has taken the spotlight!
Lady Danger is described as a vivid bright coral red that has like an orange tint to it. This color is absolutely gorgeous and will instantly pop on your lips. You don’t even have to wear much makeup with this lipstick because of the focus that it creates. It has a very creamy and smooth texture with a slight matte finish. I feel like my Ruby Woo has a lot more of a matte finish than Lady Danger. It doesn’t last as long as my Ruby Woo either but it does leave a stain on your lips for about four hours so I guess I’m okay with that. It’s the perfect color for the upcoming summertime and I’m so excited to pair it with my shorts and sandals. What is your favorite red shade from MAC? Share your comments below. Puckers to you xoxo.
