Matching red lipstick with coat- is this tacky?

Hello lovely ladies,

I got an unreal coat today to wear at Christmas. Planning on wearing a black dress and heels with it.

I don't really wear lippy or much makeup generally and know very little about it. I have dark brown hair, bluey-grey eyes, a cool complexion. I've never found a red lipstrick that doesn't make me look like a clown.

My question is, if I wore a red lipstick to match my coat, would this be a bit tacky/daft looking?

With your colouring you’ll need a blue- red

I think it would look lovely. Barry M do a lovely blue-red matte liquid lipstick that stays in place.

Oh ok, thanks very much. Can anyone suggest a nice blue red which ia reasonably cheap? I'm a student. Plus points if I'll be able to get it in a local Superdrug...

Rimmel Diva Red is a darkish blue red
Revlon Fire and Ice is a beautiful bright red that suits everyone
Max Factor Marilyn Red in shade 3 is a nice sheer-ish red and lovely creamy formula

Good to know, thank you very much 😊

Superdrug MUA lippy is £1 and it's fantastic. They do a coral and a red, which would go with your coat. They also do coordinating lip liner which is worth doing as bright lipstick needs to be tidy to look good.

True Red or Ruby Flame by L'Oreal. Cute coat!

With your colouring it would be lovely.

Utterly love a true blue-red lippy smile

Gorgeous coat!

Isn't it wonderful? And it was 30% off!

What I would say is that the cut is quite straight at the back whereas I prefer something more fitted, but I gather that's the in look right now.

Red can look lovely but not on me! You need a wider mouth and it can make your teeth look a bit ivory coloured.

I think anyway...

I would wear a bright pink or a nudes eirh a red coat.

Definitely won't be matching.

I like matching personally but that's because I like to plan my make up, I'll second Revlon Fire and Ice.
