Favorite Red Lipsticks.

1:42 PM

I cheated a little bit trying to find the perfect red lipstick.  Wearing it is daunting enough for many, but finding the perfect shade cam be just as scary.  I can't speak for everyone, but I have found a winner for a red shade for fair skin. I did have a little help. Maybelline used to have a quiz that took your skintone and pesonality into account.  Sadly, they have redesigned their site and no longer have the helpful too.  They suggested the shade Are You Red-y? for me. So I went out and bought it, then gave it a try.  I have to say they were spot on.  It isn't too dark, too light or overly bold.  And it took some elbow grease to wash the swatch off my arm. So it has staying power. If you have darker skin, this isn't as much of a daunting task.  Something a little darker such as Lancome's Attitude would be good. I will swatch and post pictures later, but the tube needs to be found.  Also, makeupgeek.com and Michelle Phan on YouTube have fool proof methods have determining your ideal shade of red. (both awesome sources of info)

Another good choice is Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lipstick in Fruit Punch. The shade really does lool like fruit punch.  It is more of a pinky red, and would be flattering on most anyone.
