Temptalia Asks You - What is your favorite red lipstick?

What is your favorite red lipstick? Who makes it? What is it called? Tell us why it’s your favorite!

I love Red No. 5 by MAC, which came out awhile ago; it’s a raspberry red, and it’s dark enough so it isn’t fire-engine red, but it’s still bold for the right occasion.

Not so much the lipsticks for me…but I just LOVE MAC’s new Red Romp lipglass!!! Just bought a second one. Also Mac’s lipglass Pure Vanity, Cherche La Femme, and Auto de Femme! Gorgeous reds.

Pure Vanity was WOWZA on me. Now that’s a very bold, blood red.

Red Romp is gorgeous. I really liked Check, Please lipglass, too!

Rocker by MAC. I’m quite shattered it’s discontinued 🙁 but it will remain my favorite red lipstick of all time. Deep red with gold shimmer – ’nuff said!

Russian Red is my all time fav red color I have ever owned. I love a “matte” type red lip with NO gloss on top…it just looks so classic movie star to me.

MAC Dubonnet! Its the exact right shade of red for me and the finish is exactly what I need for winter.

Rocker is my tied fav. Matte, but with sparkles! Woot.

Reds are almost always too pink or too orange on me, but I love MAC’s Dubonnet. I guess I can’t say it’s my favourite red because I don’t usually do reds and therefore do not own many (I’m ridiculously pale), but I really love it. 🙂 I also love Rocker.

If I looked as good in reds as you do, I’d be wearing them all the time. You were totally rockin’ the Queen’s Sin and Red Romp especially! 😀

They totally need to bring back Rocker. *shakes fist*

Stila Salome-what a name for a red lipstick huh?I actually want to try the nars fame palette-seems to have some lovely red shades-and mac red lipstick of course!OH,i actually have the mac frost new york apple which isn’t a true red, but I just loooove it!!!

Interesting name indeed, Emi! Ohh, I saw that palette, it did look quite lovely with all the reds. New York Apple is an awesome color! I consider it a raspberry red, so it’s a red 😉

A two-years late answer, but what the heck; here I am on Temptalia today!

“MAC Red.” With my blue-pink cheeks, I never found a red that didn’t make me look like a clown, until this! I love it, and it always gets compliments when I wear it.
