@justjade:  MAC Ruby Woo or Russian Red

I also like a Chanel one but it isnt matte. There is also a Stila one…dont remember the name of the product but it is very opaque and matte and the color is called “Beso.”

Matte = MAC Ruby Woo. I love it but it is sooooooo drying. I think I lost my tube 🙁

@justjade:  I wore a matte red at my weddinhg that never needed touching up, its amazing!  It’s Kevyn Aucoin matte color in everlasting.  But its a true matte, you need a brush to apply it.  Then I have a cream in cherry tart by Revlon Colorburst lip butter.  Its very smooth and  longevity is ok.  Its a good cream for the price.

I’ve heard great things about MAC Viva Glam 1 (the original). I haven’t had the chance to try it yet. It’s a deeper, brown red so it’s not “in your face” like a really bright red. Ive also heard that it looks great on every  skin tone. Bonus, all the proceeds from buying Viva Glam lipsticks go to a HIV/AIDS foundation!

@justjade:  I have an obsession with lipstick…..I have oh around 90 some…not lying. I have pretty fair skin as well which is why I do not wear MAC foundation. It is too dark.  But for lipsticks I like MAC, Elizabeth Arden and YSL.   I really like everything actually.  Some of my favorites are Simply Red- EA, Wild Winterberry- EA, Geranium Shimmer- EA, Lush Life-MAC, Everyday diva-MAC, Russian Red-MAC, New Temptation-MAC.  I like all reds except sure orange reds.  I find I look better with blue reds and pink reds.

There was a bee on here who posted in Beauty; I think she was wearing MAC Russian Red and it looked absolutely beautiful!

I love Chanel lipsticks; right now my favorite red is Pirate but there are a bunch in creme and more sparkly formulations.  It’s hard for me to pull off matte well because I have full lips that dry out easily.

I have very pale skin as well, and I absolutely love Rouge Dior 752 (Red Premiere but I believe it’s been renamed Red Favori). I have blue undertones in my skin, and this is a cooler shade of red so it compliments my skin. But if you have more pink undertones in your skin, I would suggest trying on a couple of YSL shades (my mum’s more pink and she loves YSL lippy). If you don’t wear red lips too much, I would say just buy 2 because you won’t go through it as fast as you would your everyday go to lipstick. But if you end up liking the Rouge Dior 752, I wouldn’t worry about how many to get because it’s supposed to be one of their permanent colors (I think, don’t quote me on it).

I don’t always wear red, but when I do, it’s Ruby Woo.

If you’re looking for something cheaper, Revlon Really Red is pretty similar to the Mac shades.
