Sephora Collection Rouge Lacquer red shade

I see SEPHORA COLLECTION Rouge Lacquer Long-Lasting Lipstick is on sale.  I'd like to try a wearable red for going out.  Any recs?  Thanks!

Re: Sephora Collection Rouge Lacquer red shade

I bought Survivor and High Heels.  They're similar, but I'd say High Heels is a little juicier looking.   I tried them the other night, and thought I detected some orange undertones.   That's not a nuance I'm looking for.  When I showed them to my husband, he independently sd he thought they looked tangerine.   When I kept them on longer I didn't see it.  And didn't see it on the tissue when I blotted.  However, the lighting is terrible in my house.   Does anyone have insight into these shades?  

Re: Rouge Lacquer red shade

I love Dior lippies, they have some pretty reds + nice formulas. Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumpimg Gloss is a fave, it feels great on yet doesn't leave my lips overly tingly. (Although I like some tingle too)

A Gloss or Balm might be a good starting point, maybe along the lines of Dior Addict Lip Glow, it feels so good and looks really pretty. Their shades are also very forgiving. The color 639 Riviera Star looks pretty and I think it leans more to a blue based red.

Then there's Nars.....don't even get me started! Love them too.๐Ÿ˜ Their glosses are fab + Nars Afterglow Lip Balm is yummy. Next Afterglow on my list is Turbo, it's a sheer cherry red. Good place to get your feet wet.

There are also some great drugstore brands out there too, absolutely nothing wrong with starting there, I still wear them. Maybe L'oreal Colour Riche or Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Enamel Red. On sale at Amazon for $5.88!!.

I'd say stay away from more matte lipsticks and go for juicier glossy finishes and balms, excellent for dry winter lips too.. Hope this helps and was not too overwhelming. (#toolong) Looking forward to hearing how your journey goes.

@Sunnysmom - Thanks for that! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: Rouge Lacquer red shade

@greeneyedgirl107 wearable in what sense? Do you want a more sheer formula? Are you looking for a bright, warm, neutral, or cool-toned red? A lot of times it depends on your skintone. I haven't tried this formula but I've got more than a few reds in my collection. I'm sure @Sunnysmom can help you out!

Re: Rouge Lacquer red shade

@makeitup305 I guess wearable as in not too loud.  I've never owned a red.  Not bright.  I don't gravitate toward warms as I prefer cools, but at the sale price I'm open to trying new things.  I have light skin.  Thanks!!!

Re: Rouge Lacquer red shade

@greeneyedgirl107 you might like the Saie Lip Blur Soft-Matte Hydrating Lipstick with Hyaluronic Acid Classic which is $12 at the moment. It can be a little drying without a balm under it but I like that you can increase the intensity of it and blot it off. It faded evenly on me. 

Re: Rouge Lacquer red shade

This is one of my favorites @makeitup305 @greeneyedgirl107 ! Wish I needed another one! Agree on using a balm. I always really appreciate when a lip fades evenly! 

Re: Rouge Lacquer red shade

@Sunnysmom now I feel like I *should * buy it!

Re: Rouge Lacquer red shade

Not to enable you @greeneyedgirl107 but I look at stuff like this as not counting too much due to the great price! ๐Ÿ˜† Like a lesser bottle of wine or grocery purchase etc?! Therefore it does not count. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿฅฐ  Seriously I really like these lips. Many colors in this formula are good! Let us know if you spring for it! โ˜บ๏ธ

@Sunnysmom I totally agree!!!  So, I did order it!

Re: Rouge Lacquer red shade

Yay @greeneyedgirl107 ! Fun! Excited to hear what you think. Hope you like it! ๐Ÿฅฐ

Re: Rouge Lacquer red shade

@Sunnysmom any recs on applying reds for newbie?  I tend to have a heavy hand.  Idk if I should dab the lipstick on, or use a lip brush, or something else.  I don't even own a lip brush!  There's always more to buy!

Re: Rouge Lacquer red shade

I like to break the red โ€œrulesโ€ I think @greeneyedgirl107 ! Most think using a liner whether neutral-brownish shade or matching red is the way to go and while I do follow that for a dressier precise look I like to do other things and I would say there really are no rules in my mind. ๐Ÿ˜Š I like to apply it quickly while trying to avoid any huge mistakes along the way lip line -wise. Then I smoosh it with my pinkie and press lips gently together. Not too precious. Messy is the French way! Love the translucent blurred look too. If you do add gloss just do ever so lightly in the center so it doesnโ€™t bleed. Using a lip brush is fun too and can be a good way to press it into the lips for a more saturated look and it also helps it behave, staying put longer.  The old school way is to apply the lip, take a half tissue and press it onto lips, then dust with a bit of translucent powder from a fluffy brush. Remove tissue and voila! Lips should be set for quite a bit! One last little tidbit is to purse your lips (love a good purse ๐Ÿ˜†), stick a finger into your lips and pop it out to remove any little bits that can tend to hang out around your lips and lip lines. This one is invaluable to me! Works for any color obviously but with red itโ€™s great! The world of red lippies is so fun! Beware the rabbit hole! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Neutrals are lovely but thereโ€™s nothing like a pop of red and I know theyโ€™ll be so good on you! I think I started with light reds and then whoosh. Off I went! ( Plus as Iโ€™m older than you are , my lips have lost some color sadly so I need it! Ugh. )  I do love a retractable lip brush that you can load up with some lipstick and pop it into your smaller bag so you can add during a night out/ dinner etc and when you maybe donโ€™t have much room. So thereโ€™s a reason to buy one!๐Ÿ™ƒ โ˜บ๏ธ I  have an ancient MUFE and cute ones from Yolaine and Besame . I love Yolaineโ€™s because itโ€™s a brush on one end and a foam tip on other so it really gives that nice blurred look. Good options out there tho from BB, Dior, MAC etc and all on sale today I noticed. I donโ€™t see any of Sephora to tag. I do know you know where to shop. ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿฅฐ This is probably way more info than you ever wanted about red lips! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’„
