searching a list of dictionaries for an element in a list.

If input is ['red','blue'],
list1 is [	{'primarycolor':'red', 'secondarycolor':'burgundee'},
		{'primarycolor':'red', 'secondarycolor':'wine'},
		{'primarycolor':'yellow','secondarycolor':'plain'},
		{'primarycolor':'blue','secondarycolor':'ocean'}]

I want to search list1, and the result should be all dictionaries where
primarycolor is in input. I can do this using a double for-loop, but is
there a more efficent way?
