My never fail red is MAC Rougemarie, its a deep apple red and one of their "cream" finishes. It's a color that transforms from a bright red to a quite deep blood red in dimmer lighting. It's so perfectly balanced that it's a classic color, it's one of the rare colors that looks great year round and also appropriate for both casual and formal occasions.

In my mind Red is always 'In', in both my lipstick and nail collection reds are always up for grabs no matter what season it is, It's a timeless color that can play mixed roles. It's classic and sophisticated yet sexy and seductive, not to mention its the official color of evil ... and Christmas!

To insure you don't seem too eager to start the holidays put aside all glittery, frosted, or burgundy reds. Pretty much anything else is fair game, just a matter of preference.
