Red lips

I need a new red lip color. I'd like it to be sheer, non-shimmery, and RED, but in the blue-red family, not orangy-red. Any suggestions?

    redwood by mac is a glaze so it's sheer, it's a red blue red not orange red. i love the color but my complaint is that it doesn't last long but i think that goes hand in hand w/ a sheer. for mac i find satins work best for me because i don't like shimmer on my lips either but if you want sheer try it.

    hmm...i just looked on line and it's not there but it was. maybe it's been discontinued. you can still find it in the stores even if they are not making new but you might want to go with something that is going to be around.

    ok since i'm curious i looked again and you might want to try mac red. read the description here lipsticks look for the one that says mac red and read the description. even though it's a satin it sounds like what you want. you could always put a clear gloss on it for shine

    MAC Lady Bug is sheer, red and seems on the blue end of the spectrum. (I can wear it, so by default I think it must be, because I just can't wear orange-y reds.) It's one of their Lustre line of lipsticks, which are sheer. I don't remember it being at all shimmery. If MAC Red didn't work out for you, you might try that one. HTH!

    I really like one by Elizabeth Arden. It's in a white tube and the bottom of my tube says "Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant. Stick Sheer SPF 15"

    Mine right now is the pink one for summer but I like the red one in the winter. It gives lots of moisture and looks very natural on the lips with just the right hint of color.

    A clear gloss over top makes it a bit dressier.

    You'll laugh, but for lipcolor I've been using Tarte Cheekstain in Flush. It's a lovely blue-red raspberry color, and since it's a stain, it lasts a very long time and gives a very slight sheen that is still sheer. Smells like raspberries too.

    OMG, I'm laughing, but only because I do the same thing!!! I even use the same shade - I just went running into the bathroom to make sure. :lol:

    I love Benefit Benetint- I'm a natural redhead and can only wear blue-reds. This is great, it's a lip balm and sheer color in one. I also love Clinque's Black Honey.

    I love and use Benetint for cheek color, but it's not quite blue/red enough for me for lip color. I don't like Tarte on my cheeks...it never seems to dry enough, but I love it for lip color.

    the Revlon Just Bitten is fairly blue/red and i just got the Avon Glazewear for lips in Real Red and it REALLY stains! it's also not a "goopy" lip gloss.

    What's a good orange/red? I was told I should not wear blue reds and that I should wear gold or coppery jewelry rather than silver. I have no clue how to find an orangey red lipstick.
