We already pondered whether or not going vampy was Mandy Moore‘s best look — but just because something does or does not work on a star doesn’t mean that it can’t work for us. Deep red lips are a hot trend for fall, but would you wear a dark color like that? Tell us: Would you wear Mandy’s deep red lipstick? Or are you sticking to neutral and bright tones for fall?

I don’t like this look at all!

She’s not that good of an actress, either.

Jenna on

Wow, Mandy..just wow…Never I say again NEVER! Wear red lipstick again!

francina on

i think Mandy is more pretty with natural looking makeaup,………………and as for Dani , i had to ask, why do you have to be so mean?, get a life or a hobby, anything that can turn you into a happier , and more considered person

alia on

my lips are already dark pink, so i go for the nude-shades….I think mandy should do the same…

laci on

no i don’t like the really dark lip colors. and mandy moore is too pale for this look. but i bet there is some one out there that would look great with dark colors.

Lola on

I think this is too dark for Mandy, but I love dark lipstick for fall and winter. It looks much more chic and sexy.

Princess on

This photo is like a month old or so. I think she looks better with minimal makeup. She’s cute without it.

Dani on

Which part of my comment was mean? Honestly, I think what you said about me (assuming I have no life or hobbies) was more unconsiderate than anything I said.

Anonymous on

I like the shade of color, but not really on Mandy. Mandy should stick with more nude-neutral colors. Mandy may look good with some flare of color lipstick, but not really this color, in my opinion. I do have to say though, I like her more adult look better, she should keep it up.

SaraM on

I don’t like the dark lipstick at all! I love Mandy though! She should definitely stick to natural looking makeup!

Missy on

I think this a classic look that looks good on anyone with enough guts to wear it. Bold can sometimes be seen as self confidence – something all women should have!

Christine on

I don’t think that shade suits her very well but if I could find a deeper shade that looked nice I would try it for sure.

Lisa on

No, don’t like it at all. But I like Mandy Moore.

SuperHotfemale on

I think she needed just another shade of red to pull this off. Something a little brighter perhaps…with her hair down. Maybe it would work then?

Carol on

Hello, NO I would feel to insecure to wear anything so dramatic. I like more medium colors and I feel that when you start to get older around age:40 as myself that you need to really lighten up to stay looking younger and fresher. Although I think that this looks works for a young woman such as Mandy but not for daywear. Thanks, Carol.

Danielle Elters on

Mandy Moore is definitely a gorgeous girl, however this dark lipstick does no do her justice. For her complexion I would rather see her with light pinks, or shimmery colors that are more pastel.

Amber on

She’s such a pretty girl, but with that dark hair and lipstick she looks almost goth. Plus with such a pale face, the dark above and below make her eyes look shrunken and too far apart. Stay away from the dark side Mandy, it doesn’t suit you very well at all!

Autumn on

She looks a bit like Jennifer Tilly but Jennifer Tilly can pull this look off.

danny on


Laura on

I personally think that Mandi looks beautiful! Dark, red lips are very classy looking as long as the rest of the makeup is minimal, and that is exactly what was achieved with this look. I wish more starlets would bring back the old Hollywood glamourous style!

wendy on

dark lipstick is very stricking but not on her!she should stick with a pink shade.

Anonymous on

Its NOT the makeup, its the hair!! a big NO NO.

Bonnie on

I absolutely love the dark lipstick. What’s wrong with wanting to look different sometimes? She’s growing up and isn’t a teenager anymore. She looks very chic.
I think that for nighttime and the fall/winter season, it’s perfect and with the rest of her face neutral and her eyes sparkling but not over done, she looks fabulous. I personally wear red and wine colored lip color all of the time, especially if I’m in a hurry and don’t have the time or the inclination for doing full make-up. A little mascara and hint of blush or cheek stain and dark lips and you’re done.

Scott Montgomery on

She looks old with that dark lips

Dianne on

She is too pretty to be wearing that awful red shade.She should stick to a very nude color or nothing on her lips at all.

fashion expert on

Itink it looks bad and she always looks ssssooo pretty.. She needs to go back to wearing natural colors because she is such a BEAUTIFUL girl

Teresia on

I personally think that this look makes Mandy’s lips look wayyy small, and that is what you have to look out for with dark lip color. If you want to wear a dark color, it doesn’t matter your skin tone necessarily as much as it does the thickness of your lips. I know people who look like ghosts and can pull this look off beautifully, it’s all in the lips themselves.

Elsa on

she looks like rosie o donell!

Viktoria on

yeah she looks like a vampire but i love dark lips

since i know that is the trend for this fall, ive been wearing dark lips and they look awesome

even for going to school because is so weird, and i love people staring at me like if i have blood running down my face

but i prefer a matte look, not shiny

blackpearls on

EVERYONE wants to do the vampy look, but only some can pull it off well.

anonymous on

I think this looks good and she is tanned in these pictures, normally she’s paler and it would still work. Red lips look pretty with pale skin. She looks good here too.
