Pretty color, but a huge NO on the formula

I purchased Ruby Woo from the MAC store at my local mall, and I really do love the color. It's as flattering as they say it is, on just about everyone. But the color does not make up for the multiple drawbacks. This formula is incredibly dry, and a dry formula isn't unexpected for a matte finish, but my lips simply cannot handle this. It pulls all the moisture in my lips and it gets uncomfortable very quickly. The lipstick IS very pigmented, which is a good thing, because it's not a buildable formula, it's too dry for that. This lipstick also has a habit of crumbling as it dries throughout the day, so you may end up with chunks of lipstick on your cup, straw, in your mouth, etc. as it continues to dry and wear off. And because it doesn't build well, you can't easily just reapply it over the first coat, you have to take it off and start over. This is the kind of color that I want absolute precision with, so I used a brush to apply it... yet another thing that makes touch-ups throughout the day more difficult. Again, beautiful color, but really poor formula!

Love love love

I love this lipstick! I hate constantly worrying about lipstick being on my teeth or coming off on whatever it is I drink. So, I usually tend to stick with matte liquid lipsticks because those tend to have better staying power. But this lipstick has great color and lasts a long time! It doesn't come off on my drinks and I only had to reapply twice-once just to "freshen up" and the other after lunch because I wiped it all off while eating-during my 10 hour work day! It looks good with my fair skin and isn't drying. Love!

Gorgeous color

It's a beautiful color on my light to medium skintone. For reference I'm an nc25 in the mac prolongwear nourishing waterproof foundation. It's like a brown pinky nude on me but still brown. It's pigmented and smooth.Not drying for a matte lipstick its comfortable to wear and the vanilla scent is a plus for me.

Love it

Picked up Velvet Teddy during the 21 days of beauty sale and I'm so happy with it! I don't have any experience with MAC's matte lipsticks and I'm so glad they included this in the sale. It's honestly my new favorite lipstick. I could throw all my others away and be content (but I'm not going to do that haha). When I run out I will be purchasing again. Awesome color, great staying power, beautiful matte finish without being dry.

Love this formula!

Russian Red is my new favorite red! The formula is amazing! It's not too drying and has great staying power. This lipstick is so opaque and it barely feels like I have anything on my lips. I also got Velvet Teddy, but I have to wear a lip liner with that shade because it blends in with my skin tone. Overall, I want to get more shades. Love this line!
