Reader Request: Recommendations for a brick red/sheer lipstick?

We recently received an email from Sarah, asking for help finding a new lipstick!  So let’s see if we can help her out!

Hello Make Her Up,

I’m wondering if you have any recommendations on good, deep brick red lipstick. I’ve bought several, and they all seem to be a bit purple/cold — I’m looking for a warmer shade! It seems like most of lipstick brands don’t carry this… and it’s so flattering! My ideal shade would also be a bit sheer. :)

Thank you!

Well Sarah, I’ve found three for you to take a look at!  When I’m shopping for lipstick, I always turn to MAC.  I haven’t found a lipstick yet that lasts longer, looks better, or feels better. 

MAC Lipstick: Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous.

Check out these three colors I’ve chosen for you – let me know if you like any of them!

You can find MAC at most high-end stores, such as Macy’s or Nordstroms.  If you don’t have any near you, you can go here to purchase these online!

$14.00

UPDATE: Here’s a response from Sarah!

Thanks so much – I’ll def hit up the Mac store this weekend and let you know how it goes!

Have a good weekend!

I have always been a fan of the MAC paint products and I finally tried one of the new paint pots and loved it. I bought a pot in Indianwood a really pretty golden shade. The color was as vibrant at the end of the day as when I applied it in the morning. The colors look great alone or as a base color, I love Indianwood with a pale pink on top.

PS: I have no reason to post these pictures of Kristen Bell, other than to say I like her makeup (and eyeliner!).  Here she is at the Gum Holiday event.  And I have no idea what that is…but she managed to take a picture with Brothers & Sisters hottie Dave Annable.  Lucky girl!
