From time to time I wear red lipstick to school, whether guys find it appealing or not. Generally, I've noticed that girls find it attractive, whether on themselves or someone else, and guys pretty much find it repulsing. I'm cool with that, it's all opinions, but it makes me curious why such a large number of guys find it unappealing?
Yes, I understand that red lipstick can look harsh, making it hard to pull off. It isn't exactly natural either, I understand that too, but yet it's so classy and fierce. Even for the girls that can pull it off, which I admire, though, nearly all guys I know don't find it attractive.
Your opinions about it?

I think a lot of girls pick the wrong shade for them. They see a red, and think that it will just do - there's so many different shades, and it can work for anyone, you just have to find the right one.
And I tend to think, generally, it's a rare occasion kind of thing - not really you're typical off to school look.
It's about glamour, sex and seduction.
I think it can be a bit intimidating at times too - it's not a natural colour really, far too bold, and you have to be pretty brave to wear it, so people are going to assume you're very confident etc when you're wearing it.2
