Best lipstick for olive toned skin

Hi all,

I'm looking for long wear lipsticks for olive toned skin. Specifically, reds. I'm drawn to deeper reds, so nothing fire engine-y. More purple-reds, berry reds, etc. I'm open to any shades that work well as I don't usually wear very pigmented lipstick. Any advice for a newbie?

Sorry ahead of time for spamming my face on this, but how deep are we talking? Something like:












First is Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick in shade 11

Second is Wet 'n' Wild lipstick in Cherry Bomb

Thrid is Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Shame


Rimmel 107 seems like it would be a nice berry red shade for you as well

I don't know that any of these are really long-wear, but these are lip shades that are sheer/muted red options that I like (I have olive toned skin):


Stila color balm in Ali (more muted berry red):


Clinique different lipstick in tenderheart (semi-sheer red/brown):


Fresh sugar tinted lip treatment in passion (sheer red):


I'm not sure if you want to try a gloss, but these have nice wearable red colors:


Stila gloss in terracotta ( and Bobbi Brown gloss in kir sugar (
