Dior: Red Muse, #444
Red Muse #444 makes me feel like Sophia Loren + Bettie Page + Monica Bellucci. So lightweight and smooth, the texture is wonderful but it's the color that's truly glorious. A mixture of red and coral pink, this lipstick is the color of a perfectly ripe Pink Lady apple, which happens to be my favorite kind. Just saying the words "red muse number four four four" makes me feel so giddy, I've focused haiku on the phrase.
MAC: Russian Red
Versatile and stunning, if you only buy one bright lipstick, this is it. Before she became a L'Oreal spokesperson, this was Gwen Stefani's go-to shade. I've seen Russian Red look flattering on women of all different skintones and ethnicities. The matte texture makes this lipstick photograph beautifully.
MAC: Deepest Wish
