, true-red lipstick?
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!
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.
The blogger describes herself and the lipstick as cool toned, so maybe it just didn't photograph well?
Thanks -- I looked for it and it IS a cool red...it seems to have a glossy texture, but shade-wise, I second Keely's recommendation of NARS Cruella (which is matte); you might also want to try Smashbox lipstick in Grenadine.
MAC's classic cool reds -- Russian Red and Ruby Woo -- have a matte finish, but you could always top them with gloss to sheer it out. (They are actually pretty similar shades -- Russian Red may be a bit more intense, in my opinion, but they look alike on.)
