I rock the red lipstick every now and again:) I love it, and I think most girls could pull it off (most not all)

I think any girl can rock the red lip, it just takes confidence, the right shade, and the perfect makeup to compliment (yet not overpower) the lip

depends on the shade

Who cares what the "guys"think! I think it's bold and vibrant. Makeup isn't always about looking pretty anyways, it can be expressive in it's own right, or a nod to a certain time period. I wear a 40's red by Revlon called "fire and ice" it's a stunning shade.

Given that people tend to consider red lipstick a 'timeless' look, you must've been wearing it for a looooooong time.



Personally, I think red lipstick looks great on some people, but I am not one of them. I have relatively small features, and bold lip colours tend to draw attention to it in a bad way.

red lipstick works if you have small pouty lips I think... and a really light skin tone, darker shades work with darker skin tones

It looks stunning or really pretty, depending on the shade of red and if the lady wears it well.

I personally like red lipstick It depends on how the full face make up is done though. Sometimes red lipstick just doesn't match the overall make up look.

I can rock Chapstick on my lips just like red lipstick.

Any woman can pull it off if the red goes with her skin tone, and more importantly - her undertone.

It is classic, classy, stylish, sophisticated and goes with everything. Red lipstick is THE lipstick any and every woman should own.

I would say though, wait till you're a bit older to wear it - 20 and up. It's mature looking and very flattering, but a bit much for people younger usually.

I like it....until it gets all over my....you know....but I digress. Rock on, ladies! Do it for you, not for us dogs. BIG SECRET: Ready? We'll want you with or without the face-paint. However, there is one caveat: Wearing make-up of any kind reinforces the objectification of your physiognomy by us men...a complaint I've heard time and time again. Make up, boob-jobs, (I refuse to call it 'breast augmentation'...politically correct terminology repulses me), high-heels (designed to make your ass look good and ruin your ankles at the same time), false eye-lashes, and all that jazz only puts window-dressing on the real you, (which in some cases, doesn't help much). You want us to stop hounding, and yet you still paint yourselves up like a totem pole. Liberate yourselves from this practice...or not. It's up to you. Just don't complain when we drool.

Depends on the hue and the woman. For example: I cannot pull off bright shades of red, mostly due to my lip shape; however, my big sis can rock nearly every red.

Personally, though, I prefer lipgloss and chapstick. Lipstick is often very drying and is more difficult to apply well.

When it comes to bright red or high gloss it just looks garish.
