MAC “Ruby Woo” vs EverBilena Matte Lipstick in “Love That Red”
Here in the Philippines, some say that Ever Bilena’s Matte Lipstick in Love That Red is a dupe for MAC Ruby Woo. Let’s see if it’s true!
When it comes to staying power, Ruby Woo wins and it is definitely a hundred percent more matte than Love That Red. After a while, it can be a bit drying to the lips, but, you can always use balm beforehand to avoid dry lips. It retails for more or less than a thousand pesos(P1000) in malls but you can find cheaper deals on the internet. You just have to be a smart buyer if you want a legit MAC.
Now, Love That Red, as Ever Bilena claims, is a matte lipstick! I took a picture with the flash on and it was obvious that this lipstick reflects light, therefore, it is NOT matte. Or maybe it’s not that matte. It must be from the moisturizers in it. I wiped the excess away with tissue, and that’s the only time it didnt reflect light. A tube costs P120-140in department stores and in Watsons.
I admit I love Ever Bilena Matte Lipsticks but baby when I compared Love That Red with Rubywoo—-I have to say Rubywoo wins! It’s such a nice bright red lipstick that I would wear. And for the record, I don’t wear red lipsticks ever! I hate it on my lips because I feel like it accentuates my large lips even larger.
