Do you wear red lipstick just on special occasions like New Year’s or Valentines’ Day or everyday?

So, I’ve been wearing red lipstick since I was 12. Yep, 12. Needless to say, I have worn and owned A LOT of reds. At first glance, many of my beloved reds may look quite similar to each other, BUT I’m here to say that each red is very different. Even slight shade differences and differences in texture (matte, creme, gloss, etc) totally change the look upon your pucker.

What are your favorite lipsticks? I’m mostly a matte or creme person and blue reds are what usually work best with my ghostly pallor. I’ll list a few more red standbys below! My friends, Anna and Teresa, both wear orange-y or coral reds and always look so pretty–they told me a few of their faves. I wish I could pull off those shades!

    Just saw this post and must comment….
    Hands down, red is my all time forever color of lipstick – preferably anything blue-red. And the best brand of reds (or any color for that matter) is Chanel. I’ve tried every brand over the years and once I found Chanel, that was it … never, ever will I wear another. It lasts all day, never bleeds and never stains your lips when removed. I even have some of the red colors that they’ve discontinued, but as I’ve discovered, Chanel does bring them back. I’ve even had gals ask how my lipstick stays on all day – I don’t do anything special and only wear the red lipstick. Guess that speaks to the quality of the product … those French, they just know how to do it right!!
