Hmmm… MAC lipstick in Rocker. Looks amazing on me, and I wear it often. My fear conserning super red mattes like that is my lips get rather dry in winter. Flaky no good…

MAC Cherche la Femme lipglass…..such a nice color red that works with my skin tone, but i’m not brave enough to draw that much attention to myself 🙁

I have to agree with MAC cyber. I love that color but with my pale skin I don’t think I could ever pull it off.

Will have to be another vampy for me. Chanel Rouge Noir. Totally gorgeous. And I love it to death (how apt). But I dare not wear it out a lot because it’s so red it’s almost black.

Super red lipsticks like MAC Russian Red, etc…I can’t seem to carry it well and I feel like it’s too much for my already full lips.

I love reds but I think it´s too much for me, I have voluminous lips and I think that my mouth looks bigger when I use reds on my lips. I was wondering if there is some way to use it and look nice, I´d tried to liner inside the lips´s natural line, but I still think that is too obvious.

I aqm the opposite to You Christine: i think my lips are way too thin for bold colors,reds,dark hues,etc….
i am afradid of lip injections,b/c once an YSL artist told me,i would look like a fish with it 😀 he must should know something of beauty… however i want to try some lip plumping glosses,can You recommend me a good one,that is really working? i have to be careful owhat i spend on,i need the money to expand my pigment collection lol 😀
back to the subject: it is funny,how many lipsticks i own,which i couldn’t resist in the store,but i am afraid to wear them outside the house:
CHANEL Sari Doré,which is a real orange,
YSL Rouge Pur MAt No.1 and No.19: both real bright fochsias,
Dior: Gipsy Red,which is almost brown in reality,
and a Dior Addict one,i don’t know the exact name,but a rich,dark red.
however,if You put a lighter lipgloss on them,they are wearable outside.

It’s always a good idea to lighten up a lipstick with a different gloss if you don’t feel comfortable with the richness of it.

DuWop makes a good plumper, as does Fusion Beauty (Lip Fusion), just note that they do sting a bit to give you those “bee-stung lips.”
