I agree with all the mentions of concealer on the lips.

Is ruby woo the go to red color for black women? I've read sooooo many beauty articles with it mentioned.

I found a real pretty red by ELF for 3 bux at targetLOL

Yep,
Sephora also has a deep red lip stain that is gorgeous!!
I've gotten a lot of compliments when I wear it.

It's probably already been suggested, but use a lip liner pencil the same color as the lipstick to fill in the inner part of your lips. That'll fix the 2 tone lip prob and it'll help your lipstick last longer as red is notoriously high maintenance. You can still line your lips with a darker shade.

Post pics of the finished look. Please and TIA! Embarrassed

I'm afflicted with 'Indian Lip' (LOL) - which is basically when the upper lip is more pigmented and darker than the bottom lip. Basically, my lips are two different colors.

I want to wear a really bright red lipstick (through my research, I see MAC Ruby Woo with a brick lip liner is the way to go...maybe...I'm not sure what my undertone is), but how does that work on two-toned lips? Would the lipstick appear darker on the darker lip, but lighter on the lighter lip?

Halp...

Yes for some strange reason. It's a beautiful shade, but by the time you take it off your lips will look like a molting reptile. I have worn it twice in the 4-ish years since I got it. I paid dearly both times.  Ouch
Ouch

LMFAO, RIGHT! I like to put vaseline on my lips before, though. Just to keep them supple and so the lipstick applies easier. LOL

SORRY FOR THE HUUUUUGE DELAY, I completely forgot!

Here is the thread, 27 pages of black women with pretty red lips~ I'll go bump it so it's on the first page of the MU section.
