Transform your look with one of these fabulous, red-hot shades!

Hollywood has gone CRAZY for the perfect red lip! Stars like Taylor Swift love the fact that with the perfect red lip, all you need is a little mascara and – POW! – instant makeover! Want to find your perfect red? Check out these fabulous scarlet lip shades:

Quick tip: Celebrity makeup artist and Maybelline New York consultant Charlotte Wiler recommends wiping the colors on the pads of your fingers. They most closely mimic the undertones of your skin, so chances are if you like the color there you’ll love it on your face.

Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in Are You Red-dy – Not for wallflowers (not that any red lipstick is,) this is a bright red with a slight fuschia undertone. It’s really lovely and great for a girls night out when you want to get noticed.

Revlon Super Lustrous Creme Lipstick in Cherries in The Snow – One of the original siren red lipsticks, it was a favorite of legendary screen siren Marilyn Monroe and remains a classic that has stood the test of time.

M.A.C. Lipstick in Ruby Woo – Reportedly Gwen Stefani’s favorite color, this is a super vampy color with tons of attitude.

NARS Lipstick in Manhunt – A scarlet red worthy of even the most lusty screen siren, this lipstick should be worn on a night out to do exactly that.

Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in Absolutely Irresistable Red – a satiny scarlet hue that comes in a ultra-glamorous case. This is a great night on the town lipstick, very red carpet worthy.

Giorgio Armani Beauty Rouge d’Armani Lipstick in 605 – a holiday exclusive, this coral red has deep pigment and a perfect sheen for serious impact. Michelle Tractenberg is a fan.

Red lipstick is totally hot and it’s always (in my opinion) in style. Give it a try and grant yourself an instant beauty upgrade!
