A cool-toned, true-red lipstick?

Hello Beauties!


I came across this lipstick review in a makeup blog, and I absolutely adore the shade pictured:



I'm really in love with the shade, but not so much the price and I've never heard of the brand. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a color close to it. I have a pale, cool complexion like the model. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Hi Kawaiimono.  Oh that is pretty!  I was able to find a swatch of that color and it looks pretty close to Nars Cruella.  It is a matte finish so if you swipe a little gloss on top it will be an even closer match.

Velvet Matte Lip Pencil


Do you mind specifying what the shade / brand is? (Even if you PM it?) The reason I ask is that colors can look so different on monitors -- it's honestly hard to tell. That particular shade looks neutral-warm to me (and the model looks pale but warm toned), but this might not be the case.




I can't say for any Sephora brands, but M.A.C's russian red lipstick is close to that shade and looks great on pale complexions.
