Re: Red lipstick for African American women

Great thread I'd love to find my perfect red!

Rocksta I can't imagine most black women wearing beigy pink lip tones unless you mean ones with a lighter complexion, don't be fooled black women can pull of red.

Maybe she was trying to say something else?
Black women can wear beige pink tones, too.

Re: Red lipstick for African American women

No, I said that I can't imagine other tone than beige/light-pink on Black lips, not that Black women can't wear lipstick
I mean shades of colour Jennifer Hudson has on her lips in this photo:

Re: Red lipstick for African American women

My favorite red gloss is L'Oreal HIP's Enticing; it's a deep-but-bright blue red. My second favorite is MAC Russian Red lipglass, which is brighter. I wear it over MAC Viva Glam I.

MAC Smoove was also a favorite. It's been discontinued but might still be floating around at some CCOs. It was a gorgeous matte burgundy with green & gold frost. Sounds scary, but it was lovely. I have some left but I don't wear it often because I don't want to part with it. Isn't that crazy?

(I have a similar complexion to Jennifer hudson)
I'd suggest Fresh Morocco or maybe even Dubonnet as someone else suggested.

I agree. I along with other black women manage to pull off red very nicely. As it has been stated before if you have warm complexion wear a warm based red. If you have a cool complexion wear a cool based one. I'm neutral so I dabble in both.

^ And better than most people too. Darker skins can handle more color variety and make it look good.

I've already found my perfect reds: One tomato red (finally after years of hard searching!), one magenta-red, and red wine color.

I personally don't wear red lipsticks but Mac makes some beautiful reds that I think would be beautiful on women of color.

Or like this...
