Crimson Kiss

This ultra-hydrating lipstick named for the Marilyn is a brilliantly pigmented in a burgundy red that finishes to a lustrous shine.

Oxblood Overture

For a moody date-night look, reach for a dense, high-drama lip lacquer in oxblood.

Plum Perfect

Tom Ford’s sought-after violet-meets-ruby-red lip color is a study in color wheel craftsmanship. You can never go wrong with an evocative shade with micro-shine particles.

Scarlet Fever

This lip pencil has become a classic because it applies smoothly, finishes to a creamy velvet matte that’s wholly non-drying, and does not bleed, feather or fade.

Burgundy Beat

As Gigi Hadid demonstrated, a brown shade with red undertones is the It-girl lip color of choice this fall.
