Red lipstick - Page 3

post #61 of 565
Russian Red is actually one that I'm considering. I chatted online with a MAC artist; she suggested "Powerhouse," but I'm afraid of what look to be orange tones in that one.
I'm disabled; otherwise I'd go to the store and try some on!
Thanks for the input, ladies!

I agree with everyone else. Russian Red is the way to go. I find that almost anyone can work this color

I think Powerhouse is more true red than Russian Red, on me at least.

Russian Red! It does have blue undertones but it is the truest red I have ever tried on

here's a shot of me with MAC Vinyl...which is discontinued, but still available at some CCO's and on Ebay. I'm pretty fair with pink undertones and I love it!

Viva Glam I for my money... On it's not too blue, too orange, too pink or too sheer. And it's for charity. All good.

NARS Jungle Red is the "reddest red" lipstick I've seen.

I hate all MAC reds, but love Victoria's Secret Red Velvet! It is absolutely red and nothing else. It's pigmented and has a matte finish. Unfortunately I'm not sure if they make it anymore You might be able to grab it on clearance if you live near one of their beauty stores!

I like that! Thank you! How does Vinyl compare to RR and Powerhouse?

Red lipstick from MAC

I'm thinking of getting a red lipstick from MAC. I currently only own a Pink Cabana lipstick.
NC25, Asian here.
Any recommendations?
post #73 of 565
I'm an NC25 and I find that Redwood and Dubbonet look good. I would ask to try them first though. There's nothing more annoying than buying something that looks terrible on you.

I'm NC25 and I love Diva.

Anyone like Powerhouse? I saw it on someone's lips at MUA and thought it looks kinda nice.

Russian Red or Ruby Woo is nice. If a true red is a bit scary... you can try "O". Its more of a rusty red color... which i like.

Thanks! I'll check out all the recommendations at the counter later!

Yeah "O" is great!

Powerhouse would be great. Dubonnet is actually a universally flattering color but its a deep red. Are you looking for a deep red or like a bright red? Ruby Woo is nice, its matte. Im personally not a fan of it but try them all on. Ooh Ooh i like lady bug!

Thanks ladies! I check out powerhouse and I'm in love with it.

I have "Russian Red," and it is a gorgeous deep glamor-girl red.
"Powerhouse" is on the way; I'll let you know what I think of it later.
post #82 of 565
Ruby woo is awsome!
post #83 of 565
Second Dubonnet! And Diva is pretty but it is *not* a red color, it's a deep burgundy. You can see me wearing it on the geisha look here: http://www.specktra.net/showthread.php?t=53196

Lady Bug is nice for your "first" red lipstick! It's subtle but buildible.
