I think every woman should have a tube or three of red lipstick, one that is absolutely perfect for her skin-tone and personality. I happen to have about a dozen tubes of red lipstick, because I just love it and can’t resist new colors.
But, for posterity, I’ll share my current favorite: NARS Rouge D’Enfer*
It’s luscious and satiny, goes on perfect every time even without lip liner, and it moisturizes lips all day long. I always feel like a million bucks wearing it. And unlike many other red lipsticks I’ve tried, I don’t feel like “HERE COME JENNIFER’S LIPS!” Mostly, I feel like, “Watch out world, here comes Jennifer!” And that’s a pretty good feeling.
*Should I be worried that Rouge D’Enfer means “Red From Hell”? Because it sounds . . . naughty? . . . wicked? . . . sinful? Ou peut-être “Rouge D’Enfer” est parfait pour moi. Non?
