Red Lipstick, Not Just For Valentine's Day

During Fashion Week, I've noticed a lot of African-American women wearing red lipstick.  Beauty blogger extraordinaire Felicia Walker Benson of This That Beauty, for example, knows how to rock a fierce red lip.

But I never thought red was a shade that would work for my cocoa complexion.  I usually prefer neutral and nude shades of gloss.  Chatting with Felicia at a fab Shiseido press luncheon and stylist Shaunya Hartley of Vintage Shaun in the Tents, however, has inspired me to become a lady in red.

But I need your help. Which brand's shade of red do you like best?
