What is the most popular red lipstick?

Ruby Woo is an icon. It is a lipstick that made MAC famous. A continuous award winner this is the ultimate power colour and worldwide best seller – and being that MAC is globally the #1 lipstick brand then that might be all you need to know.

But what makes this shade and formula have such a cult status with so many devoted fans?
It is a lipstick that is intensely vivid in its blue based pigment, solid in its opacity of colour and intoxicating in its velvet matte finish. A formula so unique it is fade and feather proof, lasts up to 8 hrs, and is just as impactful both on and off screen.

Still not sure?
It suits all skin tones, yes, even yours. In my 14 years of being a global makeup artist I have never, not once found someone this lipstick does not suit. But there are so many other beloved reds in the MAC line up so let me break down some more makeup artist and customer favourites suiting all skin tones and preferences!
Lady Danger – a bright orange-based red that packs a punch.
Russian Red – The failsafe. Impactful in its pigment but with a mid-level volume of colour.
Chili – A sophisticated rusted brown red, the red for those that don’t want too bold a statement.
Devoted To Chili – Chili is so popular it has a sister in the softer more delicate family of Powder Kiss.
Fashion Legacy – Fire engine red for red hot stamped on statement lips.
Viva Glam I – a rich and warm 1940s red, the original Viva Glam gives old Hollywood glamour and is still adored 26 years on.
