Ravishing Red Lips

I've seen enough photos recently of celebrities rocking a red lip that I knew I wanted to get in on the trend. The problem? I don't wear color too often on my lips and when I do, I stick to neutrals. I wanted something that would be bright, but not overpowering. That's where the Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm came in. This tinted balm feels smooth on my lips, and provides the right amount of color without overwhelming my pale skin. I picked up Two Ton Tomato, which is a great mixture of red with a hint of pink. Plus, I'm pleased at how long the color stays put: It remains on throughout the morning hours and even after a cup of coffee. Pick one up at Clinique counters for $16. –Heather Weekley, @heather_weekley
