SAVE OR SPLURGE: MAC ''RUBY WOO'' LIPSTICK VS MILANI MOISTURE ''MATTE ICONIC' LIPSTICK

14:12



Today’s save or splurge post is featuring the most sought after red lipstick in the beauty world. Yes, every girl and their momma have purchased the MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick not once, not twice. So, then what other brand will want to match up to this Almighty lipstick.


Mac Ruby Woo£15.00


It’s the perfect matte red lipstick with blue undertones. Always give that classic Hollywood glam look when applied. I remember when I purchased this product while vacationing in the UK, my friend practically made me get it. Despite the 15 pounds price tag, I picked it up and loved it from day one. As you can see from the photos, I’ve almost used it up.



However, I must say the formula of this lipstick is just a bit too drying. I have to use a lip balm first because it can be a chore to apply, it is completely matte as in sooo matte that it practically dries out my lips after a while. Its almost like a guilty pleasure because despite the disadvantages, it is still so beautiful.


Milani Matte Iconic Lipstick- NGN2,000


I was determined to find a less expensive dupe for MAC Ruby Woo. Haba! There just had to be something else that matched up to it. I tried a couple of red lipsticks from other brands but none of them really came close to the formula and exact shade I was looking for. Then I found the perfect matte orange lipstick from Milani which I featured some time ago as one of my favourites. Later on I found the red shade from the same matte line by Milani and I took a chance and ordered it.


I was right! This lipstick is everything. It has that perfect blue-red shade and though it is matte it glides on smoothly and keeps the lips moisturized. That dry feeling does not exist with this product. Milani Lipsticks are just soo amazing. 


And my verdict is ........SAVE!
AS UNBELIEVEABLE AS IT SOUNDS, SAVE on the MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick and get the one from MILANI instead. My goodness, you won’t believe your luck. I find myself reaching for it every time I want to wear the perfect red lipstick and I just may not be purchasing the one from MAC once I use it up.

  3. I have never taken time to read your blog. Now that I have, I must confess I enjoyed the next door girl aura that flows from your expression. Surely, I'd save on that milani product. Thanks Alma. So, how I can read all your post?

  4. Wow, the Milani definitely looks better, thanks Alma. BTW, which Sahad store do you make your purchases from? I went to the New store to get the Maybelline foundation you recommended in your last "save or splurge", but the racks were so empty.

    1. Thanks dear. Sahad doesn't stock Maybelline products. Just Jordana and L.A.Girl.
      You can get more stuff at the old store tho.

    1. Really?? All I own from them are about five lipsticks. I paused and I'll probably stay put for a long time.

  6. Hi Alma! Thanks for this post. I have been looking for this exact shade of red. I saw it on Jumia but I had a problem ordering for some reason(Jumia is great btw, just had a problem with this order). I went hunting but didn't find it. Then I was at Grand square & I casually strolled to their makeup stand & BOOM! It was there.Did I say it was 2100Naira??! I absolutely love it.I have worn it twice now and I got compliments. I just thought it won't be fair to not let you know.lol. Thank you!
