Red always darkens after it sits, considerably. Take some and spread it on a paper plate. let it sit for an hour and see what it does. you may already have your color.

I found that when using red or black colours you need to give the colour a bit of time to develop. I recently did a red and black cake and I noticed that the colour started to deepen after about 15 minutes. I did however use the powdered colours like I normally do.

Another important thing to remember is that if you want vivid colour in your buttercream you need to use only white margarine or even better a butter flavoured white margarine. I find that the butter or yellow margarine tends to offset the colour a bit so no matter how much colour you add it will be difficult to obtain a true colour. I once used blue liquid food colouring in my buttercream and it turned green.
