Also i think berry red shades are nice too, which I'm using. And if your skin is light/fair tone choose cooler reds, with blue or pinkish red shades (cooler base red lipstick)
In 2007 there was a leading controversy about the amount of lead in red lipsticks. When buying red lipstick, I am picky, I try to look for brands that are 'lead-free'. it's safer.
Revlon, Clinique, Dior, Estee Lauder and MAC are lead-free.
: ) hope that helps.

but if i had to pick, i rather go with a nice pale coral color lipstick or a deep rose colored...then again, i have full lips, so the deep rose color will look shitty on me...since i want to always shrink my lip size...not enhance it... LOL

I don't think so! If you're pale/white, you can carry off red much better than Asians with yellowish tints in their skin. In Old Hollywood, and the 30s and 40s where almost everybody wore red lipstick, fair skin was sought after by movie stars because paired with red lipstick, they looked beautiful! The trick, of course, is to keep eye make-up to a bare minimum if you're wearing red lipstick and less blush since you're focusing on your lips.

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder . I do not like white skin - red lips, mouth itself looks ugly when it is simple too red. And It makes my teeth look red and so on.. I just do not like it. It is same than a red t-shirt, my skin looks red .

I have a medium skintone and I tried a couple reds but it comes off looking fuschia? lol I guess I am looking for a red that will actually look like a true red for me lol
But thanks for all the input
I was seriously thinking of trying this xD

For you, it has to be Big Red Lipstick. Trust me, I know Big!

Also wear a little bit of lipgloss, that helps your lips from drying and giving your lips more volume, that makes the lips shining.

That's surprising. Red lipstick usually looks the best on pale white women since it greatly contrasts against their skin color and emphasizes their lips more, particularly if they have thinner lips.
Although, one doesn't necessarily have to be white (Caucasian) to wear red lipstick. I've seen pale Chinese and Taiwanese women who have thinner lips wear red lipstick and it looks fabulous on them.
Personally though, I wouldn't wear red lipstick myself since I've gotten fairly sun-kissed after working out this summer and my lips are somewhat full, so I prefer to go with more subtler colors.
@ OP I think NARS has some pretty nice lipsticks. I've never worn their reds but I've tried their other colors and they seem to look pretty nice.
