Looking for the perfect red (in-between vibrant and vampy)

Hi all!

I am looking for the perfect red lipstick that is an in-between vibrant and vampy. Vibrant (even slightly vibrant) usually comes across very orange on my lips, and I am not looking for anything vampy.

If it helps, I have dark brown hair, light-neutral skin, and darkish green/gray/blue eyes. 

 

Thanks!

@hanalei91, I third the Elson from PMG Labs.  Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color Uncensored is my favorite red, but it definitely needs a liner to help set it.

@hanalei91 the HUDA BEAUTY Lip Strobe Metallic Gloss Saucey 

 

I have a picture of my lips with the lip gloss on in my review on there. It's red with gold glitter flecks in there and is very shiny and metallic. It lasted me 8 hours, even after drinking water.

Try Elizabeth Arden "Red Door Red" or Almay Lip Vibes in "Treat Yourself"..

@hanalei91 Sounds like you want either a blue-based red or a classic "true" red. Consider one of these: 

 

Those are all bullets. If you're looking for a liquid matte, I'll have to give that more thought.

Hi @hanalei91!

 

I also find that a lot of the brighter red lipsticks look a tiny bit orange.

When I get a new lipstick, I'll test the color by putting some concealer on my lips before applying lipstick to see the color difference with and without concealer.

 

I've been eyeing several of the red lipsticks from Yves Saint Laurent Tatouage Couture Velvet Cream Matte Liquid Lipstick 213 Accomplice line.  I got a sample of the pink one and loved that even though it was matte, it was super smooth and creamy.
