FINALLY found a red lipstick that doesn't make me look ill or like the Joker.

Revlon Lip Butter in red velvet. I've tried all the reds that supposedly suit everyone...and most just made me look weird. Red velvet looks so natural, yet still properly red, that I now feel like I look weird without it!

Anyway just thought I'd share in case anyone is interested. For reference I'm a HoC Winter with dark brown hair, dark greeny brown eyes and very pale skin that can look sallow/ yellow in the wrong colors.

Dior lipstick in Diva is a good choice for a proper yet softer red if that makes sense.

Tried to find it in a big Boots yesterday but no luck. I need to order some stuff from Boots online so might pop one in the basket.

Thanks Always, I will have a look at it next time I'm near a Dior counter. Now I know Red Velvet suits me I can use it to find similar shades. Maybe I'm finally about to become a wearer of proper lipstick...

I'll have to try that, my colouring is exactly the same as you describe.

Got it! Not tried on as I have been full of cold with a whacking cold sore bur it looks nice sort of a brick red! Will report back! Also bought a LOreal gel liner in Golden black - very nice and a change from the black I wear normally!
