    I've noticed there are quite a few MAC makeup experts on this board so I'm hoping you can help I have wanted to try red lipstick for a while now, and am thinking about buying a MAC one mainly because you get it free if you return 6 empty containers, so it doesn't matter too much if I never really wear it. My complexion is relatively pale and I have mid brown hair, so was wondering if people could recommend a shade that would look good? Or maybe just review ones you have used?

    I've seen that shade featured a lot in a few online beauty blogs, it looks gorgeous on that girl , definitely one for me to consider when I go shopping

    I have quite a few red lipsticks from MAC and Russian Red is definitely my favourite. Might be worth asking at the counter which might suit you best as different tints to the lipstick suit different complexions. I'm very pale and I've been told red lipsticks which have a 'cool' tint are best for me e.g. Russian Red. Also, MAC have lots of different finishes to the lipstick - personally I prefer the matte ones to the high gloss finishes.

    Russian Red seems to be a definite one to try then, especially if it looks good with pale skin.Anybody else got any suggestions?

    Ask one of the people at the counter, they'll know which ones are popular and they can try them on you to show you so you can see which one you like best. I'm not sure which ones are best for pale skin or cool/warm tones but Ruby Woo and MAC Red are also meant to be good.

    Lady Bug is a red with a more cherry look to it - which is very in season and complements darker eyes/hair.

    I went in the store today and settled on a sheer red called Cockney, the woman in the shop applied it for me and I just need an occassion to glam it up now Glad I went for a sheerer shade because I've never worn red before so didn't want to go for anything to bold at first.

    I've just had a sort out and have got 6 empties to take back. Might go for a lipshade called 'cyber' if they still do it - it's like a blacky purple colour and quite sheer.

    Wore a violet lipstick out the other day and got compliments on it, so I may go for a violet. Not sure - Russian Red sounds intriguing.

    definitely Russian Red, I wore it all the time when I had dark hair and pale skin, it's your classic red. Now I'm blonde, I use Lady Danger, which is more orangey, one to steer away from as a brunette. have fun!
