Revlon Really Red is very good and also cheap. Also matte but not too matte. I'd call it dark pillar-box red.
The one I'd love to try is Lipstick Wueen Velvet Rope in dark red (can't remember the colour name). Someone gave me the night pink one and though I don't like the colour st all the quality of the lipstick is fantastic - perfect, long-lasting, non-drying matte lipstick. Also beautiful packaging. But ££££ (sob).
Funnily enough, I've got a couple of lipsticks from Joan Collins' range and the reds particularly (Helene and Crystal) are rather fabulous. They go on smoothly, last for ages without being drying, the gold tubes are superglam, and they're all called after either Roles Joan has played, or Famous Actresses Joan Used To Know Darling. You can get them at the big M&S stores with beauty departments.
Other than those, I like Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope/ Brat Pack even though it's ridiculously priced and the late lamented Soap & Glory/ ManTrap.
