I love bright red lipgloss/lipstick. I've still to find a proper red lipgloss that I like enough to buy. Do you have any suggestions. I wanted to get lipfinity but I the one I got wasnt't vibrant enough. Plus I was panicing for an hour as I tried to get it off

Great examples!! And I love red!! The darker the better!!! Especially approaching the dark brownish to dark burgandy reds... The lighter colors just make my lips dissapear.....and blend into my face but red is always in style, imho... The Classic look!!

Russian Red is a hard red to wear. It's very bright and very matte. If you're a beginner when it come to reds stick with sheer lippies or red gloss.

Also...don't forget Reds often bleed out of the natural lipline. You must use a liner or invisible liner like Benefit "D'Liner D'finer"

I was talking about the lipstick. The Gloss is very bright too. Kinda of a blue-based red.

Would cargo's reverse lipliner work, or is that something different?

Thanks, I'll get some lip liner with my reds. I'm like a little girl at the moment playing with make-up so I'm not hugely bothered about appearing sensible
