Are you still looking for THE red lipstick? For $9.50 I suggest you give this one a try. It is a delicious red that though bright, doesn't create the clown lips or neonish shade most want to avoid.
I am a NW20 w/light blue gray eyes if that helps for reference.
I imagine this shade work well on many as it tends towards a berry-ish red that brightens one's face. Despite it having considerable pink tones it doesn't go fushcia (for those, like me who attempt to avoid this).
I don't detect a scent. This lipstick feels moisturizing and is as long lasting as most.
