AlDub obsession alert! In this Chuvaness post yesterday, blogger Cecile van Straten writes that stores are running low on the iconic MAC red lipstick, Ruby Woo. Why? Because Maine Mendoza, better known as Yaya Dub, wears it. Apparently, Manila girls are in a mad scramble to cop the look.


The post on Chuvaness shares that women are walking into MAC branches and asking specifically for “Yaya Dub’s lipstick.” Holy moly! Maine can thank her makeup artist, Krist Bansuelo, for painting her pout in this classic crimson.

For those of you who’ve never puckered up to Ruby Woo, this matte lipstick is a blue-based red that looks good on everybody. In fact, that’s why all red lipsticks with blue undertones are so beloved—they don’t require any shade-matching. They just work. Period.

MAC Ruby Woo retails for P1,000. But since it’s pretty much sold out and all, here are 5 lookalikes that just happen to be more affordable. Yay!

1. Wet n’ Wild Mega Last Lip Color in Stoplight Red, P299
2. Maybelline Velvet Matte Lip Color in MAT11, P299
3. City Color Be Matte Lipstick in Samy, P225
4. L’Oreal Paris L’Extraordinaire Matte in V105 Pigalle Scarlet, P450
5. MeNow Kiss Proof Soft Lipstick in #13, P149
PS. It’s out of stock at the moment, but MeNow Long Lasting Lipgloss in #33 is also a great dupe for Ruby Woo. Waitlist that puppy.
