Phrases Chosen: very pleased!
I bought the Call The Shots, red and I LOVE IT. It is great with my skin tone (which is pale) and it is a great lipstick in general. Yes I wish it lasted longer, all my coffee cups quickly get stained in red BUT it does stain my lips so even long after it has wiped off, they are a great shade of red. The cracking and drying complaints have nothing to do with this lipstick. If you aren't drinking enough water to hydrate nor taking care to moisturize your lips properly, of course any lipstick is going to crack, "leak", or dry out your already uncared for lips. Just like any other part of your face, you need to make certain you care for your lips properly and not rely on a lip color to do the work for you. A healthy pair of lips is going to show this color and lipstick off brilliantly. I am NOT a lipstick person, I prefer glosses and even the old Buxoms but this is definitely a winner. It looks great with or without a liner and the case it comes in is great. I have absolutely no worries that my lid will come off in my make-up bag and spoil the lipstick.

Which red?
I am FAIR with pink tones to my skin with reddish hair and blue eyes. I want to try a red lipstick. What color do you think I should try? I was thinking the scarlet color because of the blue tones it would have, but I like the vibrant red of the cherry red color. Any advice ladies?
Honestly you really need to go into BE or a store that sells these products and try them on for yourself. Buying a red lipstick that compliments you is one of the hardest things, make-up wise, to do. I got a make-over where I found with my pale skin tone, blue eyes, and dark hair, Call The Shots looked great but the other option was way too orange for me. If I was going to buy it online, I would have ended up buying the one that looks horrible on me because I was going to go based on reviews. Neutral tones, pinks, they're a lot easier to figure out online but it is not worth the money to waste on a red that won't look good on you. Good luck and hope you find your red, every girl needs a great red lipstick.
