I've seen certain images that have made me want a perfect red...but I can't find anything close at all.

Everytime I've tried red lipstick, I end up looking like a hooker.

the best red lips I've seen were for a recent MiuMiu fashion show!
Loved it!
There are many girls who really like the MAC Viva Glam ones!

Of all things, Avon's 24-Hour-Red is perfect for me! One of my co-workers sells Avon stuff in her off-time and somehow ended up with this lipstick leftover in one of her shipments. Nobody who had made orders with her claimed it, so I told her I'd buy it off her to try, as the color looked appealing in the tube, and for $4 you can't go too far wrong. It turns out to be absolutely the best red I have ever worn...very 1940s and works with my bizarre sallow skintone.

I have decided yellow undertones to my skin and have dyed auburn hair (naturally medium brown) and greeny-hazel eyes.

I use Lancome Rouge Attraction lipstick in Vibration shade. I think it would be called a blue red. Anyway, it works for me.

The thing to do is keep trying different ones or go to a counter where you can get some expert assistance. That's what I did because I'm not very good at colour. I know when I see it on whether I love it or not but even the ones I love I never would have chosen to try because I can't "see" it.

Yes... I always tell myself, GET TO A COUNTER! I keep puting it off, but it needs to be done. I'm horrible at lip colors, so I definitely need assistance.

When I did that at MAC, I couldn't find anything that looked any good on me. They didn't have the sort of red I wanted, which is a dark red with orange or brown undertones. All theirs seemed keyed to cool skintones.

Granted, I don't like the "help" I have gotten at the MAC here in Kansas City. Both times I have asked for eyeshadow reccomendations, I have walked out of there looking like I could scare a clown. Their makeup artists are very pleasant and like to play, but don't have a good eye for what people might want to look like on an everyday basis.

My red lipstick I got it as a gift and it comes in a "never seen before" case so I have no idea what brand it is.

Fab color with a "blue" base. Looks gorgeous though I don't wear it often since I'd look like a clown showing up at school with it on. Only wear it on special occasions. Red lipstick is so damn sexy.
