I like a "Bold Red Lip". It's one of the make up looks I use, along with "Naked", "Nude" or a "Smokey" theme. Anything more than that just doesn't fit my lifestyle. Some people find red lips sexy and powerful but for me, it's elegant and a classic, especially paired with a white crisp shirt.
I find Revlon and M.A.C. to make the best bold red lipsticks. M.A.C. has too many shades of red which can get confusing but I find Revlon's to be simpler, that's why I prefer the latter. It's tricky to find the perfect shade of red but it's only through trial & error that you will be able to find the right one which will brighten your complexion and make your teeth look whiter. I find these two shades of Revlon to be the best red lipsticks I've ever tried.

Love That Red (top) - a true red color with just a hint of pink. best for day and summer.
Certainly Red (top) - another true red color, deeper compared to Love That Red. Best for night and during the colder season.
Here are some photos I got from the web, for inspiration, featuring the two lipstick shades...
