What's the perfect red for blondes?
I'm a green-eyed, fair-skinned blonde. I feel like i've tried every red lipstick on the planet in search of the perfect true red. It seems like everything looks great in the tube, but when i try it on, it appears either magenta or a wierd "orangey" color. I also have full lips, so if the color is too bright, I look like a clown. Has anyone else had this problem and hit the jackpot? The "true red" of this brand looks lovely, but i'm gun shy from my previous experiences.

Try Cherrywood. I use it and am fair and on the blonde side, too.

Although I have read so many articles and seen so many makeup artists on t.v. say there is a perfect red for everyone, after 10 years, I finally gave up my search for the perfect red - love Laura Mercier Champagne Pink. Adds just enough color, and since it does not make my lips clown-red, I can concentrate on my eye makeup instead. Laura Mercier also has a great lip stain - try the mulberry.
