I really like MAC’s Ruby Woo. It looks good on almost any skin tone.

Look into Zoya polish. It is toxin free and it is the longest lasting polish I own. They have tons of colors, I’m sure you would be able to find a red you like.

2nd Ruby Woo. What color is your skin/undertones?

I have to add that Ruby Woo is my fav, but the red I’ve found that looks best on everyone is Lipstick Queen Sinner in Red. It doesn’t lean blue or yellow so it works on all undertones.

+1 for Ruby Woo- BUT- I have discovered a few amazing reds in the past year.

Bite Beauty Tannin (Sephora) http://www.sephora.com/high-pigment-matte-pencil-P283905?skuId=1442151

NYX Black Label Lipstick in Extreme Red  http://www.amazon.com/NYX-Cosmetics-Black-Label-Lipstick/dp/B002QXQ4HW

Mac Russian Red- a bit more orangey, especially if you have a cool tone, but still worth checkingouthttp://www.maccosmetics.com/product/13854/310/Products/Makeup/Lips/Lipstick/Lipstick 

Dose of Colors Merlot (a bit more on the berry/ purple side, but pulled red for me during my wedding makeup trial) http://www.doseofcolors.com/mattelipsticks/merlot 

And – my new favorite, unfortunately hard to find (I bought mine in Sydney): Napoleon in Aphrodite. Here’s a cheap sample on ebay! http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/291512690053?lpid=82&chn=ps 

I will follow this post- always love to discover a new red.

I prefer blue based reds and my favourites are Hourglass Icon liquid lipstick (I think they have a traditional lipstick in this colour as well) and NARS matte lip crayon in Cruella.  If you are a Sephora Beauty Insider, the NARS one is part of this years birthday gift!

I was about to write that for me it’s definitely Ruby Woo from MAC, but I see everybody wrote the same lol πŸ™‚

soon_to_bee_trophy_wifey:  I am going to go with MAC Ruby Woo. It is my holy grail of reds! I always make sure that I exfoliate really well ahead of time with a sugar and coconut oil scrub (I like to do it the day before or hours before I apply lipstick so I don’t have any flaking) and to outline I like to do a more blue toned berry red- my holy grail of red lipliners is Mac in Beet. I line the lips and fill my entire lip with that pencil and then I put the ruby woo over it and it is amazing and people stop me all the time wanting to know what color I’m wearing. For nails my favorite dark Pinkish color is Essie- Bachelorette Bash.

For nails I actually love Rapid Red from the Insra-Dry line by Sally Hanson. I’m not a red lip girl very often, so I don’t have a fave.

soon_to_bee_trophy_wifey: Love that you’re doing red for your wedding!!

My bridesmaids wore Ruby Woo, but keep in mind it’s SUPER dry! I’m a red fiend. I wore MAC Viva Glam I for my wedding. It’s more of a brick tone red. 

I always say a Woman can never have too many red lipsticks! My absolute Favourites, Chanel La Facsinante (Rouge Allure) Nars Jungle Red, Nars Red Lizard and you can’t really ever go wrong with MAC Russian Red! 

Definitely try a few out, see what compliments your skin tone best and gives you the look you want! I’m darker skintone’d, so I would post a few pics but I don’t think they’d give you a great idea for yourself!

I’m not a huge OPI fan, but I also did ‘An Affair in Red Square’ on my nails. A England Percival is a beautiful red also πŸ™‚
