From New York, to Paris, to Milan and beyond, designers are pairing their new creations with crimson lips meant to make a statement. These lips are not for you if you want to demurely blend into the background. They are stand out, get noticed in a crowd lips. There really is a shade for everyone, so get yourself to your favorite makeup counter—may I suggest Farmacy downtown or Beauty 360 on the Westside—and pucker up. If it’s the crème de la crème that you prefer, you simply must try Chanel’s new Rouge Allure Lacque lip lacquer in Dragon. This lovely lip lacquer is a creamy, glossy and dramatic shade of red that is neither too orange nor too blue; in other words Goldilocks, this shade is just right. Surprisingly, it also has staying power and will last through your morning latte and on to lunch. Even if your runway is the walk from your office to the water-cooler, remember to work those red lips, because all eyes will be on you.
