Woooh! It took me a few minutes to find this thread.

Now, I haven't worn red lipstick since I was 5 and my mom turned me into Snow White for Halloween, but I'm very interested in trying red. I think red lips can look so classic and luscious and Hollywood glam. I don't want anything that too bold for now, because I'm generally conservative with makeup and this is also my first time discussing lipstick, let alone such a bold shade. I don't usually wear lipstick at all (I'm a lip balm gal), so I want to get it right!!

I'm Asian, and pretty fair-skinned (although I do tan easily :p). I wouldn't even mind trying a tinted gloss to test out what color looks like on my lips. I'm worried that if I choose the wrong color, it will look very horrible and tacky against my skin, or make my teeth look yellow , and to be honest, I'm not too sure which shades of red (blue tone? pink tone?) is supposed to complement Asian skin the best.

If anyone could help me out and suggest some great red lipsticks and glosses I would love you forever!!

A brownish red would be perfect for you. I use the same shade. I did not find the perfect brownish red but I get it by mixing regular red lipstick with brown lipstick.

i'm asian, very pale, neutral toned and wear cool shades better. i like MAC lipglass in V-red and Viva Glam has one dark matte red that looks pretty good on me. i find other reds really overwhelming. with really bright dark colours, the trick is to apply very thinly, with finger then a brush for the outline. applying it straight from the tube usually results in a really overly harsh RED RED RED lips

True Classic Red Lipstick. Pink/orange reds, stay away from me!
I'm looking for a long lasting, best if No - transfer lipstick. I LOVE RED LISPTICK but I stay away from the majority of them because they are pinkish/fuchsia toned or orange/brownish. This is no good! Plus I hate metallic, rosty or sparkling lipsticks, (so my pickyness is at rather high levels?)

Uhm, anyway, trying to describe my ideal color is hard but I'm sure most of you are looking for it cause It's both sophisticated and bold.
"Saturated Tomato Deep Red" it's the only description it cames on my mind, sorry! I'm linking some pictures to explain better ...I like them all altough they're different each others, but in my opinion they are beautiful reds!

If anyone wears this colors and would like to share the names and brands, and why not, pics of models wearing it, I'd be so glad


Just to say, I own a tube of long last soft shine by Clinique in Deep Laquer, it's a nice red shade, not pinkish, but depending on weather is more on the brick-brown side on my lips...no good!



Tinted Kisses to everyone of you dollies!

My perfect red is MAC Port Red. It is a LE shade but the best red on me.
