Hi Ohmyjinkies,

 

Blue based reds tend to have a cooler undertone to it rather than an orange/pink tone. You can tell if a lipstick has a blue based red by applying a swipe of the lipstick on your hand. If it is blue based you will see the border of the color turn a slight blue tone. I suggest the following red lipsticks that all have a blue base to themSmiley Happy

 

Illamasqua Lipstick 

COLOR Maneater - matte classic red

Illamasqua - Lipstick

COLOR Box - matte deep scarlet red

Illamasqua - Lipstick

Smashbox Be Legendary

COLOR Infrared Matte - matte true red

Smashbox - Be Legendary Lipstick

Also, use a clear lip liner like the Too Faced Borderline Smoothing, Anti-Feathering Lip Pencil to prevent the lipstick from bleeding.
