Wait, so you allready did it?

Hmmm,, it sure looks like it decreses the allready poor light output... if you can put a thinner coat on and get brighter bulbs.. it might fly...

paint your headlight LENS or HOUSING? and you're going to paint it red? it doesn't even match your car. but to me, i wouldn't. i used that same paint to tint more of my tail lights.

Hmm... then id say if you could paint the projector lens itself it wouldnt look bad, but if you have to paint the outer housing, then its probably going to look kinda odd... So id say do it, but the oem wouldnt work out quite right...
