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.

If you can get your hands on it, I highly recommend NARS lipstick in Basque -- it was a limited edition, and the most gorgeous brick red I have seen in ages. I love it! Since it was so new, and so recently discontinued (about a month ago), you would probably be fine buying it on ebay.

 

Bobbi Brown Lipstick in Burnt Red (brick red) is very pretty alternative: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P270541&categoryId=B70.

 

Or, try NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Zambeze, which is a really deep brown-red that closely resembles a brick red: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P273416&categoryId=B70.
