    ■Your skin tone/coloring: M.A.C NW 20
    ■Best red lipstick? : Burberry Military Red
    ■Best red lipgloss? : A Kiko one or more recently Guerlain gloss d’Enfer in Red Pow
    ■Best red lip liner? : I have just a MUFE one and I never use it, I prefer applying red lippies with a pencil and setting with powder but without a lip liner

  2. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Ellen Ellen

    Skin tone: fair with neutral/cool undertones
    Best red lipstick: either Guerlain Rouge G in Greta (especially for winter, since it’s a bit darker), or my new favorite, Kanebo Sensai The Lipstick in Tsuybeni 09 (oh god, even more expensive than the Guerlain – $55! – but a present from my mom! It stays on forever and looks amazing)
    Red lip gloss: I’m loving YSL Golden Gloss in 17 (golden cherry) – moisturizing but also amazingly pigmented, and tastes good
    Lip liner: I bought a Sephora Waterproof liner a couple of years ago, and it works well for my red lipsticks. I don’t always wear lip liner though….

  3. Your skin tone/coloring: NC25-30.

    Best red lipstick? Tom Ford Diabolique! That’s my power red.

    Best red lipgloss? Not a gloss girl so I really don’t own that many. I’m going to say Dior Ceremony Red from last year’s holiday collection.

    Best red lip liner? I only own one, which is Too Faced Perfect Red. It works well with most reds I own!

  4. My coloring is light with warm undertones, so I love orange-leaning reds, as blue-toned reds makes my complexion look stark. Favorite reds are in lipstick are either LimeCrime’s Retrofuturist (I gave up looking after I bought this one nearly two years ago), or Revlon’s Lip Butter in Candy Apple (depending on which look I’m going for). In lipgloss I think it would be Pierre Rene in 27, which is a glittering red that is fully opaque in one coat (!). When it comes to lip liner, I’ve only ever tried Isadora Perfect Lip Liner in Prime Red, but that one works just fine with me.

    • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Sasha Sasha

      Candy apple is a great subtle red. I like that the balmy formula lets a little of your lip color show through so it looks almost a bit berry-red on me like MAC ladybug. If you ever feel like looking for another orange-red, I’d recommend Guerlain Genna, that’s the best I’ve tried so far. I’ll have to check out the LimeCrime if I can find it anywhere.

      • Thanks for the advice! I’ll check out Genna! Although the LimeCrime one is good with lasting power, it does make my already quite dry lips a little dry for the duration of the wear (nothing a thin layer of balm on top can’t solve though!), but it is (if not the best out there) a good choice for a retro lip :)

  5. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Christina Christina

    Your skin tone/coloring: C4 / NC30 – neutral light tan Asian

    Best red lipstick? MAC Ruby Woo. Despite that it’s the most drying formula on the market, it truly is the perfect slightly cool red for my skin

    Best red lipgloss? Don’t like the red glossy look myself.

    Best red lip liner? MAC Cherry! Works with cool and warm reds somehow!

    • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Emma emma

      Im NC30 and use Ruby Woo as my red staple. have NOT encountered ultra dry situations.. id recommend using MAC lip conditioner and exfoliate regularly.. also use Mac Cherry as my GO TO red lip liner

  6. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Sasha Sasha

    Skin tone/coloring: MAC NW/C 15. I’m cool toned but have pink undertones so I can either play up the pink or cover it with yellow.
    Best red lipstick: Guerlain Genna
    Best red lipgloss: don’t really wear lipgloss, Though I did really like a YSL lip lacquer that I can’t remember the number of now because I hated that my hair stuck to it.
    Best red lipliner: don’t have one. I’d probably try to use a clear lipliner to keep it from feathering if needed. If anyone can recommend an orange-red lipliner I’d be appreciative!

    • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Elizabeth cydoniac

      Mac Redd is very good. I pair it with Mac Lady Danger and Armani Lip Maestro #401.

    • Sasha– Estee Lauder has a cool red and warm red in their Double Wear lip pencil. The warm is called “Coral,” but it’s definitely a MAC Lady Danger type red.

    • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Sasha Sasha

      Thanks for the recommendations, I’ll have to check both of them out!

  7. Georgie

    Your skin tone/coloring: NW20
    Best red lipstick? MAC Viva Glam I
    Best red lipgloss? Is it cheating to say YSL Glossy Stain #9? If not then probably a Dior gloss, though I prefer to put clear or clear-sparkly gloss on top of a lipstick if I want colour.
    Best red lip liner? I’ve never worn lip liner, it always seems to find itself at the bottom of my wishlist despite the fact I really need it.

    • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Sasha Sasha

      Thanks for mentioning it, I think that’s the YSL red I was trying to recall for my post haha!

    ■Best red lipgloss? I have to cheat on this one, NYX Monte Carlo, its like a gloss and lipstick together. It dries matte.

    Best Red Lipliner: NYX’s Red, but most of the time I use a color correcting pencil for lining red lips.

  13. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Elizabeth cydoniac

    Your skin tone/coloring: medium, tans easily, brown hair/eyes

    Best red lipstick? Rouge d’Armani #400…I have got many red lipsticks and many classics,too (eg. Russian Red, Chanel Dragon)…#400 is the best I have…perfect texture, amazing colour!!! love love love!!!

    Best red lipgloss?I don’t own many lipglosses, so I can’t really say.

    Best red lip liner? probably Mac Cherry (but again, I don’t have many other red lip liners for comparison).

  14. NC43

    Best reds in general;
    Revlon Matte ‘Really Red’
    Revlon Lipbutter ‘Candy Apple’
    Rimmel Kate Moss ’01’
    Dior Addict Extreme ‘Fireworks’

  18. I have neutral-leaning-cool fair skin. In MAC, I can wear either NW15 or NC15.

    Best red lipstick: Lancome Rouge in Love in “Sequence of Love”– this is my HG red.

    Best red gloss: not a red if worn by itself (more fuchsia), but if layered over a red lipstick, MAC’s “Love Alert” Dazzleglass is gorgeous.

    Best red lipliner: I don’t want my lipstick moving AT ALL when I wear red, so I go for Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Lip Pencil in “Red” to make sure my lips are bulletproof. It’s a bit drying, but if you are prone to feathering, it’s a lifesaver.

  28. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Mariella Mariella

    Skintone: fair, cool-toned (MAC NW 15-20)
    Best red lipstick: I have a few since there are so many shades of red. MAC Dubonnet, New York Apple, Capricious and Red Dwarf (LE); Guerlain Habit Rouge; Clarins Redwood
    Best red lipgloss: Joe Fresh Bordeaux or MAC Spanking Rich (I’m not really a lipgloss fan)
    Best red lipliner: I never use any colour lipliner but invisible (Lise Watier) or MAC Dervish which is the colour of my lips. I hate that look of the line that is left behind if a strong coloured lipstick starts to wear away. I’d rather have line the shade of my natural lips so I don’t like bizarre if my lippie wears off and I don’t have time to replace it.

  29. Your skin tone/coloring: Pale with yellow undertones

    Best red lipstick? Clinique “Merlot” and Estee Lauder “Maraschino” (both listed by the FDAs website for lead just recently which really made me sad)

    Best red lipgloss? MAC Russian Red

    Best red lip liner? I’m not big on the lip liner, I’ve never been too successful with it.

    • MIrely Maldonado

      Thank you for the info on the FDA. I just went to their website to check if I had lipsticks from their list and I do! Some of my favorites actually! MAC: Show Orchid (fav bright pink), Blood Red (fav dark wine-red color).
      I know they say since the amount of lead in the lipstick is very low and even a lower percentage of it will be “consumed” it won’t be a threat I’d rather know and be safe than sorry.

      • Sage

        There are only certain batches of each lipstick affected by the lead. Look on your tube and confirm whether the batch numbers match before you throw it out.

  30. Yellowlantern

    Your skin tone/coloring: NC20

    Best red lipstick? I like dark reds with a very slight brown undertone so that the color doesn’t lean cool or warm (I think that color is called oxblood). Black Radiance in 5005 Sahara Red is my favorite. I also like sheer candy apple reds too. My go-to is Revlon Lipbutter in Cherry Tart (if I want a more red-pink) and Candy Apple (if I want a slightly orange based red).

    Best red lipgloss? I don’t own any.

    Best red lip liner? I’ve never used lip liner.

  31. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Chelle daheep

    1. Medium (UD Naked 5.0/MUFE HD 123/BECCA Noisette)
    2. Guerlain Rouge G in Gala for power/pin-up red & Ellis Faas Milky Lips L201 Blood Red for…blood red lips! The latter looks amazing on all my friends.
    3. Ellis Faas Glazed Lips L301 Sheer Blood Red. I’ve been looking for a better quality dupe of Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in 53 Red Fizz, but haven’t had any luck. Everything seems is too gritty or sticky.
    4. No idea! I have this L’Oreal one since college that I use on occasion. I’m not a fan of lip liners; they always dry my lips out, feel uncomfortable, & don’t seem to prolong my lipstick’s wear. Maybe I need to invest in better quality ones?

  32. Your skin tone/coloring:
    pale/yellowish

    Best red lipstick?
    I have so many, but I think the best of the best for me are MAC Viva Glam I and Sephora’s cream lip stain in Always Red. I wish I could find a lipstick that is the same color as that lipstain.. it is truly the perfect red for me, but sometimes it is overwhelmingly drying.

    Other favorite reds are MAC Diva, Russian Red, Lady Danger, and YSL Rouge Volupte Red Muse. NARS Fire Down Below comes close, but it does not have good coverage for me and it ends up looking really dry really fast (I always need to line & use gloss to make it look even, but even then I’m not always happy). It is such a beautiful color, but I don’t like the texture.

    Best red lipgloss?
    I have yet to find one I’m satisfied with.. When I want glossy lips, I just dab a little Buxom pink/purple gloss over the lipstick.

    Best red lip liner?
    I have various Sephora nano lipliners and also NYX Hot Red. I like the Sephora ones a lot – I can’t get myself to buy expensive lipliners (though I would love to try MAC Cherry).

  33. Kate

    Skin Tone: Pale Pale Pale- Bobbi Brown Alabaster/Porcelain are the only shades I’ve ever found that match me.

    Red Lipstick- Chanel Rouge Coco in Cambon is at the top of my spring rotation (retired Rouge Noir for the summer)
    Red Lipgloss- MAC Cult of Cherry (Cult is a VERY good word for it!)
    Red Lipliner- Chanel Carmin (I’m down to the nub on my current one)

    Skin tone: Very fair with yellow undertones.
    Red Lipstick: MAC Russian Red
    Red Lip gloss: Sephora Cream Lip Stain in 01 (yeah not a gloss, but the tube looks like one!! :). And I layer gloss on top to keep it shiny so it looks like one)
    Red Lip Pencil: MUFE Aqua Lip in 8c.

    ■Best red lip liner? : MUFE Aqua Rouge (I believe that’s what the pencils are called?) in 8C I really like the primer/liner from Bite Beauty but it’s colorless so it doesn’t count as a red lip liner… but it’s good because it’s universal :P

  38. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of aykhan akhan

    * Your skin tone/coloring: Medium, olive (MAC C4, UD Naked 6.0)

    * Best red lipstick? I can’t pick just one: NYX Chic Red, NARS Scarlet Empress, Armani Lip Maestro 400, Revlon Lip Butter Red Velvet for more subtlety. Virtually all of my red lipsticks are blue-based reds. Also, NYX does nice reds – Snow White is also very nice.

    * Best red lipgloss? Not a huge fan of red glosses, but I’ll reach for YSL Glossy Stain #11 Rouge Gouache fairly often, or for a more conventional gloss, NYX Plush Red works well enough. The Glossy Stain can be applied as a subtle stain for work, which looks really good.

    * Best red lip liner? NXY Plush Red

  39. -Your skin tone/coloring? MUFE 110

    Skin tone: Nutmeg brown, cool gold undertones ( MAC NC55, MUFE #178).
    Best red lipstick: Mac’s Minerialized Rich “All Out Gorgeous”. Wears better than the infamous Ruby Woo (which I love despite the critics) and Russian Red.
    Best red lipgloss: NYX Xtreme Lip Creme in Absolute Red.
    Best red lip liner: Mac dupes galore, all by NYX – favorite is Deep Red.

    I love blue-reds and deep, dark reds.

  41. Skin tone/coloring: NW15 at most (i.e. ghostly pale), dark hair/eyes. Snow White :)
    Best red lipstick: Guerlain Garconne, with runner up Shiseido RD607 (Lacquer Rouge) and MUFE Rouge Artist Natural N45. The first is my fave classic red, the second is a really lovely dark dramatic red, and the third is a sheerer cherry red.
    Best red lipgloss: Burberry Hibiscus, or maybe one of Bobbi Brown’s (Hot)? I don’t have many red glosses.
    Best red lipliner: I don’t use lip liner; have no idea.

    Your skin tone/coloring: NC10/15. More cool toned than true neutral.
    Best red lipstick? I could never just choose one, but I adore Smashbox Be Legendary in Grenadine. I generally prefer my blue-based reds, but I can pull off the occasional orange-red if it leans more neutral. I love the stark contrast it can create.
    Best red lipgloss? Not a big red gloss person, but Revlon’s Super Lustrous lipgloss in Fire is stunning.
    Best red lip liner? I get a gratuitous amount of use out of my Covergirl lip liner in Passion. It definitely leans warm, though, so I am looking for a good blue-based one.

  45. VickyM

    Red lipstick: Mac New York Apple and Mac on hold, I know neither of them is pure red, but this are the only ones I have an use. I´m more of a pink lip girl, and when I want red this two work for me.

    Lipgloss: Just a clear gloss over any of the two lipsticks above for shine.

    Lip liner: I don´t have a red lip liner but Jordana 14 Rust works for me.

    • VickyM

      My skintone is NW15.

    • Kate

      New York Apple was the first MAC lipstick I ever purchased (had just moved to New York, and it was the most vampy color I’d ever attempted, so it seemed appropriately daring)! An oldie but a goodie.

  46. I’m a NW35/40, and the main red lipstick I use is Cle De Peau’s R1. I consider that the final word in lipstick, all else is auxiliary/”second string”. I am surprised no one else has shown love to R1. I do have Burberry’s Military Red. But I reach out for R1 more.

    Skintone/Coloring: Fairly light, very neutral; dark features.

    Lipstick: I don’t know if I have just one favorite! As long as it doesn’t pull orange, or is too warm, I’ll wear it.

    Gloss: If I’m going for red lips, I want full-opacity, which very few glosses provide; they can also be a bit messy. I prefer a lipstick of my choice layered under a clear gloss. I also have more variety, and at a lower cost.

    Liner: Wet n’ Wild; I don’t know the name/number off-hand, but it is the most neutral red I’ve come across. It’s not very creamy, and takes a bit of pressure to apply, but ity stay’s put all day.

    Your skin tone/coloring: Fair with freckles and redness.
    Best red lipstick? MAC Russian Red. Armani #400 is also gorgeous.
    Best red lipgloss? I don’t have any red glosses – too messy.
    Best red lip liner? I use Cargo The Reverse (flesh colored) with red lipstick and NYX Hot Red to redden up any corals or reddish-pink lipsticks.

    Best red lipstick? Mac Dubonnet (HG red for me)
    Best red lipgloss? Lime Crime carousel gloss in Candy Apple (though I don’t wear it much at all- not a fan of gloss)
    Best red lip liner? I just use a cheap Revlon liner. It works well enough, though I’ll probably cave and buy Urban Decay’s Ozone liner soon so I can use it with any lip color.

    Your skin tone/coloring: NC05, extremely fair with neutral-yellow undertones
    Best red lipstick? I love MAC Russian Red, but a new favorite is Dita Von Teese Art Deco lipstick in Muse Red. Super moisturizing matte!
    Best red lipgloss? Not a lipgloss, but a lip lacquer, The discontinued Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in Dragon. Wish they would bring it back!
    Best red lip liner? MAC Cherry, hands down. My lipsticks used to bleed like crazy until I started using it.
