Red lipstick is Ruby Woo from MAC.
The reason I like it is because it does give quite a bold color, but the finish is SUPER matte so it looks like a beautiful old hollywood red lip.
It can be really drying though so if your lips tend to chap, but you still want a matte finish red color I’d go for Russian Red, which to me is similar to Ruby Woo in color, since they’re both supposedly blue toned reds.
If you’re not ready to go for a red lipstick though try a lip stain. I know Tarte has a bunch of super cute ones, and right now has a nice one in their True Blood collection. Other than it being a super cute red lip stain it’s TRUE BLOOD! TRUE BLOOD! Come on. What else do you need?
