Next time you buy a fierce lippie, remember that the secret to wearing red lipstick is choosing something that matches your skin tone AND eye color.
According to Preview, "Knowing your undertones (warm, cool, neutral) will help you tremendously. Once you pick your favorite type of red, research on products that come in the same undertones as your skin to avoid the two from clashing."
