Need Help on a Red Matte Lipstick

I want to wear a nice red matte lipstick (for any occassion), but I'm finding it quite difficult to find the right shade for my skintoneSmiley Frustrated. Everything I've tried was either too deep or too bright and looked way off Smiley Sad. I am Indian-Caribbean. I wear MUFE's HD foundation in 173. I have black hair and dark brown eyes. I plan on wearing this lipstick as the product that stands out the most on my face like the model in the Sephora look for the holiday that had the red lipstick tutorial. I'll be going to Sephora sometime during the week, and if I could get some help to try on some reccommended shades that would be great! Thanks!

Hi Missdiorcherie,


Angiepie has some amazing recommendations. I also wanted to add that with your skintone a mid-toned red would look great with your skintone. I put together some matte red shade that I think would look very flattering on you.
