Because red lips are fabulous! I have kind of small lips too....
If you want to try a gloss, Nars makes a really good red called "Scandal", very glossy, very red!
But all makeup brands are making different types of lipstick, so you might find a glossy lipstick. However, I think that if you want a real depth of colour, you'd be better off getting a more matte lipstick and adding a little gloss over it...

I personally think it looks better if you have pale skin and dark hiar ... or pure white blonde hair.. i think a matt red rather then a shiny one looks better as well... imo that is

Thanks miu miu=) I am still not sure...whether i want it glossy or matte...but i think deep red with orange tone would look best on me....i was watching a movie and salama hayek had red lipstick with orange tone...looked amazing on her...i have a darker tone than salma hayek...but i got dark black hair as well...i looked up Nars on Sephora.com and Scandal seemed like more of a pinkish tone rather than red...

Dulcisima...I would say to try the Armani that I use, because although you can definitely wear a warmer colour, I've seen Salma in some very deep reds and it looks very striking. Might be worth a try?

I use Nars crayon lipstick in Cruella Red- I absolutely love it! It's a completely matte lipstick and lipliner in one and it has great staying power.. If you like glossy red lips (I'm not really a huge fan), you can always put gloss on top.

Certainly do. Sometimes I think it looks nice and sometimes I think it looks ridiculous, but if I don't do it, then I feel ugly, so I guess I have to.

I've never spent much, though, on an eye liner. Maybe $10 tops. I'd like to get some MAC or Shu Uemura. Maybe for Christmas.

My winter lip staple is Nars Heat Wave. It's a semi matte orange red. I have a golden brown complexion with freckles on the cheeks. I use Nar St Tropez Powder to give you guys an idea of my color. Says its a powder for tanned & olive complexions with yellow undertones

(sephora.com)

I have really full lips so it is a shocking color to have, but really nice quick and dramatic boost when I don't feel like wearing any face/eye makeup.

I agree. I wear Chanel Rouge Allure in Passion (14) and it's the only red lipstick that 'clicked' with me. I've tried lots of variations on red but never found one that did my skin tone justice, until now.

I have an ivory skin tone, and have medium brown hair and blue eyes.

I have fair skin and brown-black hair. I do not like goofy bright reds, but somewhat darker ones, probably because it balances with my hair. I haven't found the best specific brand yet though. I probably look better on orange-reds, but I can also wear berries and get away with it.
