now, i know many of you gals are huge fans of red lipstick, much like myself. and i know everybody has their favorite, so i wanna hear what they are! what is your favorite red lipstick? brand and color name please.

personally my favorites are:
- NARS "red lizard"
- guerlain's "422" which has since been discontinued
- MAC's "ruby woo" - "russian red" - "glam"

gracias muchachas!

Vampire Red from Manic Panic. It is like Ruby Woo, but doesn't bleed or turn your lips into cement.

Personally I hate anything from Mac, other than the concealers.

Not about lipstick sorry still searching for mine.

This is about Mac have you tried their zoom lash mascara? It's great you have to really wipe it ont he edge before putting it on since it's thick but makes your lashes long and thick I love it.

MAC's redwood, viva glam I, diva, dubonnet, hot tahiti, & santiago (lipsticks), fanplastico (lacquer), venetian (lustreglass), v-red (lipglass). I guess I like reds too! ;)

(redwood is my fav stronger red, hot tahiti is more of a sheer, glossy red, and fanplastico lacquer is the best for candy-apple, high-gloss, intense red)

Mac Russian Red, hard freaking core
and when I'm feeling cheap/the crap I toss in my purse: NYC Retro Red
which is the exact same color as RR, except costs ninety-nine cents.

For a dark 1920s red, Clinique Red Drama. Ohhhh yes.
(That is my signature color, I get stopped on the street by women wanting to know what lipstick I'm wearing.)

The last time I went on a Vicky's spee (um, Victoria's Secret to the uninitiated), I ended up spending so much I got a free lipstick. The color was called "Ruby Slippers," and it's the mostest perfectest red I've ever ever worn. It's the ONLY lipstick color I have ever been complimented on in my life—and I wear LOTS of lipstick, and have earned loads of compliments for this one. I feel like it's almost magical, because it really is universally flattering, as well as being ungarish enough to wear anytime, anywhere. And for a lady who can't leave the house barefaced, that's the jackpot.

NARS Jungle Red for summer and Red Lizard for winter
Both with Jungle Red lipliner

NARS is the greatest.

I have a fantastic lipstick from the Guerlain Kiss Kiss range, called folie de grenat. It's a really dark, gothy red. I'm considering getting the more vibrant shade just lighter than it, because it looks more vintage. The texture is amazing and it lasts forever.

I'm currently loving Garnet from The Body Shop. It's a bit deeper than I usually wear my red but it looks so vampish and glam.
