I got a package in the mail today, just what I’ve been waiting on…my M.A.C. Retro Matte RiRi Boy!

 I couldn’t wait to put it on, so I didn’t wait and I love it!

It’s definitely not as light lavender as I thought it would be.  It’s a lot darker than my eyes saw online and on other people, a mixture of dark purple and burgundy or wine.  I’m wearing it as I type this blog and it’s not dry to my lips at all and the lipstick stays in place, without bleeding.  I’ve fallen in love with the Retro Matte colors that I have from the RiRi Hearts Collection, which are RiRi Woo, check out my review on that, and RiRi Boy. They’re matte but moisturizing at the same time, the best of both Worlds!

I did decide to compare the RiRi Boy to some of the purples that I have in my makeup collection just so you can see what color purple RiRi Boy really is.  I picked everything from my lightest to my darkest shades.

As you can see, it resembles closest to OCC Hoochie Lip Tar; a lot like it, but without the shine & gloss on my hand, BUT when the OCC Lip Tar does dry, it pretty much looks exactly like RiRi Boy.  I can’t wait to wear this color out and about.  It’s right up my alley.  The wait was well worth it.  Oh, by the way, I did get word that the RiRi Boy, specifically, will be in stores later this Fall.  So, if you missed out on it this time around, don’t be sad, you still have a chance!
