I bought a "Red Set" from NYX on Hautelook.  Those reds suited me better than Ruby Woo and I love Ruby Woo.

You all have been tremendously helpful.

Farra
, thanks for that tidbit about the liner to prevent running. I didn't even know lipstick ran. I have never worn lipstick before, so thanks for helping a newbie out Tongue.

Also, thanks to everyone who mentioned the matte lipsticks. I didn't know lipstick came in different finishes. My hat is off to all of you who wear make up because there really is a lot to learn.

Thanks again, everybody!!! I think I'll post a pic when I do the look Evil Smile.

I agree with wearing matte lipsticks. My lip color is different on the top and bottom and matte lipsticks don't show it. I no longer wear glosses honestly.

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.

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

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

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...
