Picture’s not showing!

Without seeing the picture, the first thing I can think of is why don’t you try a wine/burgundy shade? It’s red but not RED red, just slightly darker.

 

Edit — Ahh, there’s the picture! Well, I still think you could try a burgundy shade (though that may be a bit too purplish), or maybe a shade of brown that leans towards the reddish side?

That lipstick she’s wearing is kind of a brick shade. Maybe try Nars Lipstick in the color “Shanghai Express?”

Are you looking for a reddish brown combo or are you looking more for a reddish orange combo?  The color above looks like a reddish brown combo, IMO I think MAC has a great assortment of lipsticks for reasonable prices.  Even if you visit them to get an idea of the color you want – – from there you can maybe find something at Walgreens or even at Sephora for a lower price…..

EDIT – PS = that color she is wearing is really pretty and that is an amazing inspiration picture Laughing

Honestly?  I’d print out the pic and take it to a few make up counters and explain that you’re trying to achieve that same color – I’m sure they’ll be willing to help you!

It looks a lot like MAC’s Underworld color to me.

My new favorite red, which is better than any I’ve tried and/or owned is the new Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick in Gabrielle. It is the most wearable red I own now, and the consistancy and lasting power is great. It isn’t as dark as the one in the photo you posted, but it is a really nice red. It is also one of the only strongly pigmented lipsticks I’ve ever tried that didn’t give me the dreaded lipstick teeth (A problem I have a lot even when I do the “lollipop” trick)! It is a little pricy, though.

I love Nars lipstick, especially the sheer ones.  Their reds are amazing- and I too have been on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick for a long time!  I think the trick to red lipstick is it not going on too matte and heavy.  The sheer versions seem to be more wearable.  I love Flamenco and my friend swears by Lizard Red.
