Nars Velvet Gloss Pencil in Baroque ($24) is a deep blue-based red that adds a sheer wash of glossy gorgeousness.
If you aren’t sure you were meant to wear reds, trying a sheer red like Nars Baroque will give you a good chance to experiment. It will allow some of your natural colors show through. The deeper color looks great with both fair and deep skin tones. The touch of blue helps whiten teeth just a touch.
This is one of my favorite sheer reds. I love the pencil format. Although it has a slight crayon scent (which I believe is the packaging and not the gloss), these are so easy to use. A nice, fool-proof burgundy red.
