Classic. Glamorous. Bold. I love the look of red lips. They instantly brighten your face while making people think you’ve got your act together. For everyday, I like a red lip balm with just enough color to leave my lips with a juicy stain. For an important meeting or audition, I love a creamy, bright red that screams, “Notice me!”. You can find a great red at any price point and in many different formulas. Below are five of my favorite red lip products I find myself turning to again and again.
