I have red hair, and have been told by a few people that 'redheads just don't suit red lip colour', that kind of thing. But I LOVE it.
I currently wear MaxFactor Ruby Tuesday
Any recommendations/favourites?

Mac Ruby Woo - very matt

I'm intrigued by MAC - hear so many good things, but I've never tried any of their products. Maybe now is the time!

I have red hair and don't wear any other colour than red lipstick! I like

Soap & Glory Mantrap
Mac Dame
Mac Russian Red
That Rimmel Kate Moss red
No7 Red Carpet
No7 Siren (an orangey red)
No7 Cherry (well, you've got to spend those £3 vouchers somehow)

I am scared of proper bright red lipstick (working up to it!) so I like Revlon Lip Butter in Candy Apple - lovely and sheer but definitely red.

i used to love ruby woo, but i find it a bit drying. I LOVE mac red though. its perfect.

Mac Dubonnet, Diva, Russian Red, Lady Danger, Ladybug, Ruby Woo all worth trying.

Redheads look amazing in red lipstick!!

Oh yes, forgot about Mac Red Branleuse, prob cos the name is so dull, but it's gorgeous.

ElizabethBathory Mon 28-Oct-13 17:42:33

And yes I have tried all of them blush

Branleuse Mon 28-Oct-13 17:45:13

i have red hair too

Soap and Glory Mantrap here too.

Red hair here too, and after trying lots have settled on Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain in Romantic - nice warm red but doesn't make my teeth look yellow, and lasts ages.

This is great! Lots of choices to agonise over grin One thing I'll miss about Ruby Tuesday is the taste though - it is oh so good.

Nars Jungle Red?

Revlon Really Red. It's matt and goes fabulously with red hair. I wear it over Romantic too.

I wear red lipstick every day, my favourites are
MUA red £1 and brilliant!
Limecrime Velvetine in red velvet,
Maybeline 18hr Superstay in passionate red,
Rimmel apocolips-I can't remember the shade

Chanel: Rouge Allure Lover, but fear it might've been discontinued?
Agree on Revlon lip butter in Candy Apple.

Tom Fords red collection are all beautiful smile

I don't have red hair but wanted to add that I think red hair and red lipstick pretty much always looks amazing !

I quite like mine from the dita von teese range by art deco

MsWinnieBaygo Mon 28-Oct-13 19:39:48

Lancôme Rouge red my lips is good IMO

LillyNotOfTheValley Mon 28-Oct-13 19:43:09

Any Chanel Coco that has a bit of blue in it, they are really good mosturizers and that is the most important thing with reds

OPeaches Mon 28-Oct-13 19:43:23

Chanel red, all the way. They only do one red, it suits everyone. It's shade 19 I think. I've got red hair and paleish skin and it looks good on me. It lasts forever and goes on beautifully smoothly. Best lipstick ever in my opinion.

Lancôme Madame Tulip is a corally red

Also no 256 by them is good.

bottle redhead here!

Feeling very drawn by the sound of that Chanel red.

Yes, yes, buy the Chanel, you will not be disappointed.
