Waimea Bay North Shore Hawaii

Leave a comment

Aloha Waimea Bay! Waimea Bay is a beautiful beach on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. A famous surfing beach due to the large shore breaks during the winter season. In the summertime, the waters are more calm. A perfect time for swimming and snorkeling. Waimea Bay is also well-known for the gigantic rock (pictured above with me) called Jump Rock. It is approximately 25 ft high. You can climb up to the top of the rock and jump off if you choose to do so. If you’ve been here, have you jumped off the rock? Share your experience with me. 🙂

Location:

North Shore, Oahu

Yes, that’s what the warning sign says. If you simply look at the rock, it looks easy. If you’re there in person, it looks bigger and more dangerous. The waves were pretty strong when I was at Waimea Bay. I was almost pulled into the ocean just by dipping my feet into the ocean water! Luckily, nothing bad happened. I would only recommend experienced divers and good swimmers to participate in this activity.

MAC Lipsticks in Russian Red & Ruby Woo

Me wearing MAC Lipstick in Russian Red.

I’ve always wanted a few red lipsticks for special occasions. But, finding a good red lipstick has always been very difficult. The formula needs to be better than average. I say better than average because I put lipsticks in their very own special category. Eyeliners, mascaras, foundations, eyeshadows, and blushes are much easier to find. I can easily adapt to them if they are decent. Lipsticks, on the other hand, I cannot. It’s either I can use them, or I cannot. I need a lipstick that’s rich in color, doesn’t crease, stays put, fragrance-free, and doesn’t taste weird. It’s not like I eat my lipsticks. They’re on my lips, so they slip in. 😔 Also, fragrance-free, because I develop headaches from lipsticks if they are highly perfumed.

Since I’ve had much success with MAC Cosmetics before in another shade — Honey Love, I chose this brand again. The formula worked for me. I loved it. For the price and quality, it’s quite amazing! So, I purchased two red lipsticks from MAC Cosmetics. They are Ruby Woo and Russian Red. Before I go into further detail, here are photos of my MAC Cosmetics red lipsticks in Ruby Woo and Russian Red. Swatches and all. Enjoy. 💄

Ruby Woo Retro Matte Lipstick:

Russian Red Matte Lipstick:

They are two different shades of red. Ruby Woo is a tad brighter, while Russian Red is deeper in color. I’ve only used Russian Red. Here’s a picture of me wearing Russian Red (the above photo too, both are Russian Red).

In conclusion, I really like Russian Red! 💋 With Russian Red, the lipstick lasted the whole night! Not even a single budge or smudge after dinner and sipping on a glass of water! I didn’t have to retouch at all! LOOOOOOVEEE! Now,I’m excited to use Ruby Woo, which was out of stock for a while, so I didn’t receive it until a few weeks later. They are both popular reds! From this experience, I would say that MAC Cosmetics red lipsticks are top quality! They hit all the points I want in a lipstick. No creasing, stays put, intense in color, doesn’t taste funny. Most of all, no bad headaches from it, since it’s fragrance-free. They work for me! Even though I’m not a big fan of other MAC Cosmetics makeup products, they win me over with their lipsticks!

Have you tried any MAC lipsticks? Ruby Woo or Russian Red? Any favorites? Share your thoughts and experience by leaving a comment!
