RiRi Hearts Mac

Saturday, June 22, 2013

Earlier this week, I fell into the hype of Rihanna's new summer lipstick collection (Hearts). The collection is selection of 3 different lipsticks called RiRi Woo, Heaux, and RiRi Boy. Now RiRi Woo is your classic , cool blue-red lipstick. Heaux is a muted berry red and RiRi Boy is a vivid lavender-violet color. Guess what? All three of the lipsticks are matte too. The lipsticks are only $15 a piece. I personally ordered RiRi Woo and Heaux. There's nothing like a classic red lip and a deep kind of berry red. I ordered them last Monday and they came to my house by Friday. It literally took me about 2 hours just to ordered them. Only because the site must've had too much activity on it since everyone was trying to get what they wanted before it sold out. I was about to give up too because I tried on my phone and then my home desktop. Then after a while, I just went on my Mac and did it. At first it timed out a few times, but then quickly I got to the check out page and after that it was taking very slow, maybe 10-15 minutes on each page, but I finally was able to purchase it.

These are personally now my two favorite lipsticks because I prefer matte lipstick over any other kind of lipstick really. Matte lipstick just compliments my skin and these colors compliment my skin tone very, very well. Although, RiRi Woo will be saved for more special kinds of occasions because I don't like to wear a bold red lip all the time. However, Heaux is a bit more toned down and deeper so I will feel more comfortable wearing it, not on a daily basis, but definitely more than RiRi Woo.

What I also noticed when putting the lipsticks on is that if you're not very careful, or if you're a bit messy when you put lipstick on, you will have to be very careful with these. This is because it's kind of hard to just wipe off of your face because I noticed that it does tend to stain a bit. I mean c'mon, the colors are very good and you can tell the quality is good and long lasting since it's a bit hard to take off. I would recommend either using a lip brush, or just being very careful when applying it freely. You can also just take either concealer to clean it up or you can get a pointed q-tip, (post on this next) dip it in some make up remover and try to take it off that way. When putting on the lipstick, I also noticed that it doesn't leave your lips feeling dry. It actually does leave them feeling pretty soft and smooth. I can't say it enough also, I LOVE matte lipstick.

The only reason why I didn't get all 3 lipsticks to complete the collection was because I was personally scared to get the lavender one. Only because I felt that it may have been too bright of a color for me and it's not something I'm particularly interested in. Maybe because I'm scared of trying too bold of a lip. If you did get RiRi Boy, and you can pull it off well, man kudos to you. I wish I wasn't so scared to try it out but maybe I will break out of my shell soon and try bold colors like that. 

I highly recommend these lipsticks if you love MAC lipsticks and you're into matte lipstick. You don't have to stick to keeping it matte if you don't want to either. You can always put a gloss on top if you prefer your lipstick glossy. I'm not sure how long these lipsticks are going to be available, but I suggest you act fast in getting them. Heaux is already sold out and who knows when RiRi Woo and RiRi boy is going to sell out as well. I hope you enjoyed this post and will invest in this great product. From one beauty lover to another, see you soon.
