Long, Lost "Brick"-Red Lipstick Love - Looking for Another!
[ Edited ]

About 9-yrs. ago my friend had a Lancôme lipstick in "Brick", insisting that I tried it on.  I did, and oh, it was absolutely divine!  It was true-to-color titled and the first and only red lipstick that didn't look fuchsia or fade to fuchsia on me.  I later tried to buy it for myself, but appariently it's discontinued and any other red of Lancôme's never quite matched like that one.  I've looked around other brands but I've yet to find anything like it.

 

Would anyone know of a good, decently priced, "brick"-red lipstick?  It's such a simple shade, I don't know why I'm having so much trouble.

I know exactly how you feel.  Many times I have tried finding an exact color in a different line, but alas..  no such luck, 

If you still have a little bit of the old lipstick, you can send it to a company in New York (they are called '3 custom blend') and they will duplicate it.  I have tried duplicating an eyeshadow with them and the result was quite satisfying.  Check out their website and click on the custom blending tab to have more info. 

Best of luck with your search

Oh, that's awesome! Thank you for sharing that company, I know it'll definitely come in handy. I'm afraid I don't possess that lipstick. Like I said, it belonged to my friend that she just let me try on and I highly doubt she still has it. C'est la vie!
