I posted this on another board and they suggested I try it here too:  I love the look of red lips and would love to make (or even buy) the perfect shade.  I don't want it to be too dark though (I am very fair skinned) nor do I want it to make my teeth yellow.  I really like the gloss look also. Any suggestions on making/buying such a gloss.

I love the benetint stuff, like angstmonkey said.  And also this Lip Venom  It kind of burns and makes your lips redder and slightly swollen and very shiny.  It isn't colored itself, it just increases circulation to the lips (by irritating them slightly).  Sort of akin to the old-school 'just bite your lips' that my grandmother advocates.

I also have the same problem with red lipstick and lip gloss but am so tragicly inlove with it. Being irish with and so fair I have to be careful with what I wear. I love Benefits lip stain, Sephora has  2 really good lip glosses its just their house brand, one thats round and one in a tube. Also Bloom make a good raspberry color that I can't remember the shade name but its very flattering on us fairer gals. I personally own over 200 lip products so you could say its a bit of an addiction.

Buy some vaseline, and melt it in the microwave until it's a liquid.  Then, add a small chunk of red lipstick, it won't come out as strong because then you mix it with the vaseline. Good luck!

I usually take a red eyeshadow that I like on one finger, a little Vaseline on the other, mix, and apply. If it's too dark, I blot and apply a little more Vaseline til it looks right. Nice and cheap, too, because it doesn't take too much eyeshadow. Of course, that leaves you the problem of finding a red shadow that you like...I suggest going to a department store and fiddling with the free samples to find some flattering shades. If you have the money, buy those, or buy similar tones at a drugstore.

Mix red lipstick and clear gloss on the back of your hand. It's sheer and doesn't look so bold and bright.

careful with eyeshadow on your lips because eyemakeup sometimes contains ingredents that are harmful if ingested. my friend got a horrible rash from putting eye makeup on her lips before and she called the company and they told her this.

YES - do not use eye makeup or anything else not specifically meant to go on the lips, on your lips.  The FDA has very specific lists of what is safe for lip products and what isn't, because we all ingest at least a bit of what goes on our lips.  Same goes with your eyes, don't put anything on your eyes that isn't meant for your eyes!
