I like Dubonett - looks a little less orange on me than every the blue based brighter reds.

Ooh, I forgot about Del Rio.  I love this thread, its breeding sooooo many lemmings.  (Kanga Rouge, Charred Red, Sin, Dark Deed, and the ever sought after Queen's Sin)

 

I am waiting for the mattene finish (or new and improved matte) with a slightly warm not orange red that is about as bright as MAC Red or Eden Rouge.

 

Oh, and adding these 2 to my original fave reds list as I have acquired and tried them:

 

Rocker (darkened red with subtle glitter)

Deeply Adored (matte crimson)

Hi, just wanted add another I forgot in my original post and I can't believe it; YSL Rouge Volupte #18 in Red Taboo. I forgot about this one, and it is gorg! I would like to include MAC Wild Bout You but that has some strong fuschia/berry leanings, at least on me.

    Big red is sexy!  So many women fall in love with the color. But not all the women who love it can use red. It depends.

post #103 of 260

I'm willing to try others but so far these are my favs:

 

Ruby Woo

MAC Red

Heartless

Everyone should try viva glam I. I wear it with NYX lip liner in burgundy and it is so pretty. It's the perfect red on me!!

I bought all the MM lippies and none of them compare to this color!

I have viva glam and I feel just like I look terrible! Im fair skinned but want that deep matte vintage red look.

If your lips are highly pigmented (a SA gave me Midimauve to try and we both agreed it is my natural lip color in a tube), you're around a NC40, and you're looking for that ultimate, true red that doesn't turn fuchsia or pull orange and isn't dark, try NARS Jungle Red. I've always wanted a red lipstick that would be the equivalent of a Russian Red or Ruby Woo but for my WOC skin and lip tone, and this is it. It's a perfect true red. I'm lucky that it is permanent, too.

You didn't get Deeply Adored from MM? That's the shade that comes to my mind when I see deep matte vintage red for fair skin. You can make it darker by using darker lip pencils if it isn't dark enough. Oh I love that shade....

No! I get so nervous to try products living in South Dakota, without trying them first. We don't have a MAC counter or store so it sucks because I want so much but if I get it I end up being disappointed.

post #110 of 260

Sorry, I did not see it was in the underforum for WOC. 

post #111 of 260
How about Apres Chic or Absolute Power?? I loved Dubonet (my &$#@! Roomie stole it). And Smashbox Legendary. Its such a bright vibrant red, but totalky wearble.
post #112 of 260

NARS- Velvet Matte lip Pencil Dragon Girl 

MAC- Ruby Woo & Lady Danger 

Stila Fiery

.......and I am currently on the hunt for more. 

post #113 of 260

I hope Chanel brings Dragon back. I have seen pictures and it is gorgeous!

post #114 of 260

Im on the olive darker side and I always struggle when it comes to red lipsticks, Ive tried tons and they are all either too dark, too orange, too creamy etc. etc......Anyway I dont have a fav single lipstick but I do have a favorite combo, I usually combine Mac Ruby woo and Mac lady danger...I like that it makes ruby woo pop even more without being drying (I hate ruby woo's texture by itself)

post #115 of 260
I have yet to find my red...
post #116 of 260

I love Viva Glam 1 but the wine color that it is makes my teeth look more yellow than they are. I do drink more coffee which I heard stains the teeth which sucks...

I didn't really liked reds but this fall-winter I back to Mac-ed Ruby Woo, and I really like it, perfect for my really pale skin, and I really like that it is bright but not as blue as Russian Red for example.

When Aprés Chic came out, AC instantly became my favourite red though, it is a perfect toned down, bricky-brownish red on me, 

it is perfection! heart.gif
