We're sort of terrified of fire engine red lips. If you haven't got the right outfit to go with such intense makeup, it just looks like a little girl playing dress up. Claudio Riaz Lip and Cheek (Shade 10 shown) ($38) gives us the red lip we've always wanted to pull off without the embarrassing look of "I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing" on our faces. You can apply it with your finger or a brush for a pulled-together appearance day or night. We won't be using in on our cheeks, however, due solely to the fact that a color this dark would never blend enough for our liking.
