I am all in favour of wearing red lipstick for special occasions and Valentine's Day is one them. While I usually prefer pink and coral lips for everyday life, there is nothing like a red pout to channel the old Hollywood glamour look. Just like everything else, I like to have options (I am sure you do too!) when it comes to deciding on lip products. Here are the ones I tend to keep on rotation in my makeup bag: a classic mid-tone red lipstick for a Parisian flare (2), a creamy and luscious formula that just glides on the lips (3), a modern matte pencil very easy to apply (1) and (5) or a shiny gloss remarkably well-pigmented (4).
