Hi! I'm 14 and I usually only wear lip glosses or coral lipstick. I want to try and go for a lightish red color but I don't know what product to use. I've heard that stains are good but I've never actually tried one. I don't want to go too dark! Thanks for the help!
I agree that Tarte makes some amazing light red lipstains.
I also think that you should look into trying the Benefit Benetint, it looks dark in the packaging but when it's applied it is a beautiful sheer red shade. This product can also be used on the your cheeks!
if you swipe the tarte for trueblood lip stain on your lip's outer edges. then blend with your fingers, and then dot the colr all over your lips, it will give you a light red/ hot pink color. you can also build up the color so it is a red, but i don't recomend doing this for and everyday look.
I still really like to but a full color lipstick and pat it on my lips. Let it sink in a bit and kiss the back of your hand, then apply a clear gloss. This makes any color wearable. Or you can put on a clear gloss then dab on a little of the lipstick over the top, press them together to spread the color evenly.
Urban decay pocket rocket lipgloss is perfect! I have Timothy and even though the swatch shown online shows it as more of a pink, it is totally a coral/red and the more you put in the redder it gets. But if you put ver little on it is more of a medium pink/coral. Its really how much you apply. I am only twelve so I usually dont put much on, but every once in a while if I am going shopping or something I'll go a little heavier to get more of a coral/red!

I agree about the Tarte Lip Stains. I love these for their ultra hydrating feel and soft tints of colors. Their staying power is amazing and the variety is great.
