Laurice: "There is a type of love between a woman and her favorite shade of lipstick— a love that is so deep you almost forget you have any other shades in your collection! This lip is by far my favorite. It makes me feel bold and beautiful, and that's the woman that I strive to be everyday."
Virginia: "This orangey-red hue is a little too bright for my complexion. I love how pigmented it is, but my guess is I'd fare better with something a little richer in color. I almost look washed out with this red. If you're really into bright reds such as this one, try toning it down by pairing it with a darker red to create an ombré affect. "

Laurice: "I love the boldness of this red lip. It's the prefect color for date night or a brunch with the girls."
Virginia: "When applied to my lips, 'Julianne's Red' is equal parts coral and tangerine. A little bright for my taste, but I don't look washed out, and with a little gloss in the center of my lips, this could be a good color for a casual Autumn weekend."

Laurice: "Making my teeth look whiter, and brightening my face are number 1 on my lipstick checklist. So of course, this gorgeous shade makes the cut."
Virginia: "I like that gloss is making a comeback. This Liquid Lip Potion goes on smooth and provides a good wash of color on my lips without being overpowering. The formula is light with a high sheen that is still office friendly. I also like that my natural lip color peeks through the color and the product is super buildable. That means I can wear a subtle wash of red during the day and glam it up when I head out for light bites with friends."

Laurice: "Deep reds are a fall favorite of mine. I don't know how many I have in rotation when the cooler months come around. I would wear this as an everyday lip. I might even mix it with a bright orange to give me bolder lip when I'm feeling adventurous."

Virginia: "I mean, what girl doesn't love a classic Chanel red lip? I love this shade for two reasons: it has the transparency of a stain, but still gives me high shine, but I'm also obsessed with the name,"tèmèraire," which means "reckless" in French. This is the perfect shade for the girl who's just beginning to wet her feet in lip color but isn't afraid of taking risks."

Laurice: " When the orange-y lipstick trend first started I told myself it was something only certain women could pull off. When I put on this lip I realized I just needed to find my perfect shade!"
Virginia: "I'm basically having a love affair with Guerlain lipsticks. The bullets are designed by a jeweler, so they're super luxe. Simply taking the product out of your cosmetic bag is a treat in itself. This "Parade" shade is a true blue-red that looks incredible on all shades. The incredibly creamy formula is über pigmented and perfect for all occasions. This the little black dress of lipstick, and I am obsessed!"

Laurice: "I'd wear this lipstick on a night out with friends. Sometimes I like to be a bit overdressed, and when my clothing is loud I sometimes tone down the lip shade. This is a perfect neutral red for me to wear with a "loud" outfit."
Virginia: "Genius makeup artist, Pat McGrath recently told us that she thinks 'brown girls should wear wine lipstick year-round.' This lipstick is proof of why. Sheer color with a sublte shine, this 'Diva' shade is a win on two fronts: color and price point!"

Laurice: "Wine lipstick was a trend I probably overused last fall, and plan on abusing once again as we get deeper into the colder months. There is just nothing like a cute LBD and a deep red lipstick to add a little bit of mystery!"
Virginia: "If red isn't your thing, opt for a berry lip instead. Sometimes I think red can be a bit overbearing for daywear so I'll lighten the mood with a berry lip instead. More of a mauvy-pink than red, this shade is office, weekend and date night friendly."

Laurice: "Cold temperatures mean less moisture, and in my case dry lips. This creamy lip is perfect for a quick daytime look."
Virginia: "When it comes to color, Bobbi Brown just gets it! I love this deep red hue with a subtle hint of brown. It's playful, romantic and the perfect shade for fall."
