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?

Can anyone recommend one that has blue in it, but cheaper than Chanel? grin

I have Mac Absolute Power and Mac Ronnie Red - both are limited editions, but very close to Ruby Woo, just not as matte and drying.

You have sold it to me, Peaches thlsmile

Chanel Rouge Coco in 'Gabrielle' has now been purchased. Can't wait for it to arrive!

Mac Russian red for me. I'm a natural redhead and henna'd more bright red!

I found ruby woo to be too bright pink on me. Russian red contains more blue tones I found.

Off out to sample some off the recommendations here now though too. I wore the mac one to a wedding at the weekend and found I had to keep reapplying loads.

NYX chic red lipstick is beautiful.

Not to be confused with NYC.

NYX Eros

NYX Fire

NYX eLectra

They are all lovely reds. I love NYX, hate the new formulation of MAC lipsticks, they are not the same quality as they were years ago.

Pleasure Me Red and Hollywood Red, both Maybelline or MAC Diva Glam 1 all work for me, but I'm not a redhead!

If anyone likes orangey reds, I can recommend Chanel Incandescente (shade 97).

MAC have a lipstick called Red Branleuse? That means red wanker in French! Not such a boring name. I second MAC and Chanel for red lipsticks.

Haha, I think it's the poster who is called Branleuse rather than the lip colour!

Could be the launch of a whole new makeup line!

Haha, that will teach me not to be lazy about bolding posters' names!
