Maybe MAC Dubonnet or Underworld?? Also the lip varnish in Speed Demon.

Benefit Ms. Behavin or Ruby Vibes.

You have to call the 866-astarte number listed on the website.

You can ask for a list of colors. Karen the owner is very nice. Tell her that Lakitha from New York referred you.

Re: Red lipstick for African American women

Its hard to say, but I think any deep/burnt reds or reds with an orange hue would look gorgeous on African American skin tones!

Re: Red lipstick for African American women

i love milani pencils. they're cheap and you get alot of color with minimal application. sounds like we may have similar complexions and i love red velvet. if you want to go brighter try bonfire. you can tweek it if the color is too intense.

Re: Red lipstick for African American women

I am deeply in love with MAC Dubonnet l/s. I also wear MAC RED which is just a tad bold, but nice nonetheless. For gloss I really like the new red 3-d gloss that came out recently. I cant think of the specific name right now but it was the only red in the bunch. I think its perfect!

I saw some vids on youtube on red lipstick and I saw this lady applying some gorgeous red/wine lipstick but as the video progressed it got kinda weird so I left.

Re: Red lipstick for African American women

Hi,

Look for reds that are brick or garnet based. Prestige also makes a color called "Dubonnet".

Re: Red lipstick for African American women

My complexion is similar to Naomi Campbell and Lauryn Hill. I have very full lips and have great difficulty wearing lipsticks of any shade. Lipstick always looks very chalky on me. Perhaps it is due to the natural dark coloring of my lips. For that reason I just wear lipgloss. When I want red lips I either use a dark red lipliner and clear gloss or dark brown liner with red gloss blended well together of course.

I like matte.

Re: Red lipstick for African American women

Sorry, but I can't imagine red lipstick on a tan skin...
I generally can't imagine any other color on Black women's lips than that beige-light pink tones. I'm very narrow in this case

Re: Red lipstick for African American women

Are you implying that african american women can wear lipstick?
