I bought my first red lipstick today. I didn't pay much attention to the color or the brand because i was too afraid i wasn't gonna like it or that it wouldn't look good on me. It's a 'standard red' if that even exists. I tried it on to see how it looked and i'm still undecided about it; i've got pretty full lips, so i don't wanna end up looking like The Joker

Actually, judging from your pictures on 'WAYWT', I think red lipstick would be beautiful on your coloring and bone structure. "Standard red" is never a sure thing, it may still come out too pink or 'off' on you. It's a matter of trial and error until you find the right one. I'm still in the error phase...red is a very difficult color for me.

^ Thanks
I think i'm gonna give it a try this weekend (at night); i'm still skeptical about it to wear it over the day :p

What i tried to mean with 'standard red' is that it's pretty much a red-red; not too many organg-y or pink-y pigments.

I don`t own any red lipsticks. But if I were in the mood for one I would try out the Rouge Pur Opium Red # 131 by YSL. It seems (according to MUA-reviews) to be the perfect Red.

thank you I wished bright reds were easier to apply thought, like vanish on everywhere but you lips
I got some other reds in the meantime: MAC Pro longwear in lasting lust, hoping it was a smearproof version of Russian red (HG <3), but it's a bit orangey, still very bright. Then I discovered Maybelline... they have a shade of red that's more bluish. Then they have a superstay powergloss in a red which is a bit dull. But I got it for free, so will be using it too...

i use lancôme red and sensual java.
i always apply it with a brush since otherwise it ends up looking way too strong.

oh my god, i can't believe i've only found this thread now!

i'm obsessed with red lipsticks and my two favourite ones are a cherry coloured Ruby & Millie and a bright red MAC. i've not found a good red yet though, like, not too bright, not too light.
