Default Bold Lips...what's your favorite color

I'm not much of a makeup person. My look is pretty much the same daily for work...tinted moisturizer, spot conceal, neutral eyeshadow, liner, mascara, brows, blush. Now where I like to step out the box with my work look is with my lipstick. I LOVE a nice bold statement making lip color. I'm not much of a gloss girl, but I LOVE lipstick. Love, love, LOVE lipstick.

Right now I'm wearing lots of blue based pinks, purples, and fuchsia colors. In the fall and winter I'm in deeper plums and reds. I tend to gravitate towards these colors because they tend compliment my skintone best. Right now I'm loving the following colors

MAC: Rebel, Girl about town, Show orchid (I need to order Violetta from the pro 800# and I really wanted that Herone but I missed it before it sold out)
Covergirl: Divine, Embrace (very close to the MAC Rebel but has duo chrome)
Revlon: Vava Violet, Berry Haute, Wild Orchid, Violet Frenzy
Fashion Fair (yes I still love Fashion Fair's lipstick): Royal Orchid

If you've seen swatches for these colors they are all very pretty and I love them all, but they are very similar (several are dupes) and all in the same shade family. For those of you that like a nice statement lip color, what are you wearing? I'm always on the lookout for nice lipstick colors so I figured I'd ask my curly girls here.

Lately, I've been wearing Ulta Super Shiny lipgloss in Starlet. It's a really pretty raspberry red. It's not very sheer, which I like. The color is nice and saturated, so I don't have to layer a clear gloss over a lipstick.

I've heard you mention this Ruby Darling before...it's a red lipstick right?

Yes...sort of a new do. I cut my hair about 2 months ago! Everyone kept saying I needed to update my avatar b/c it doesn't even look like me anymore. Finally got around to it today since I'm home nursing an ear infection.

Is it similar to Fresh Morrocan? I keep meaning to swatch it and try it on at the MAC store b/c the Macy's counter near my home never has it.

I don't wear bold lips very often. I usually wear light pinks and neutrals. But my favorite bold lip is Cherries In The Snow by Revlon.

Ohhhh I like Marah!!!! Very nice!

I've heard a lot of good things about cherries in the snow. I believe that I heard it's a dube for one of the MAC reds...either Russian Red or MAC Red.

@NCC I don't think those MACs are a dupe for it. Those MACs look like definite red colors.

Cherries in the Snow is more like a pinkish raspberry color. It's stunning.

Hummm...interesting. I'm going to have to find some swatches or YouTube videos of women with my skin tone wearing this color. I noticed that I hardly EVER see it in stock so it must be a popular color.

Im a Mary Kay beauty consultant and since I sell makeup/skincare I try to wear it, but for some reason I cant get myself to weat certain lip colors. I tried one thats calles berry tart its a really nice purple that all my customers love but I couldnt get myself to leave the house wearing it. I always end up wearing neutrals and gold/bronze lip colors. Ill wear red once in a while and thats as adventurous as ill get.

See maybe it's me, but getting dressed in the morning, it's much easier to brighten up my face with lipstick rather than eyeshadow. It takes too long (for me anyway) to put on two/three eyeshadows, blend them well and all that jazz. Plus i have super oily lids and even with primer and base I *still* crease before lunch at work.

Plus even though i have very full lips they are well proportioned and shaped and can carry shades that most people think are too much very easily.

FYI: Ice heard a lot of people rave about that Berry Tart color. Have you tried applying it like a stain rather than full on color? When I first started wearing bolder colors it was a gradual process...I had to apply lightly and blot it down to a stain at first. Now...I wear it full throttle with just a little liner to stop bleeding.
