Judge A Trend By Its Cover

I know the old saying goes, "Don't judge a book by its cover," but when it comes to a magazine, I think it's okay to break that rule...

{I spy a lip color trend.}

Judging by the covers of my recent December issues, I'd assume that red lipstick is going to be the trend du jour (or more appropriately, "le mois" - the month!).  Keira, Selena, and Scarlett are all looking fantastically festive in their crimson pouts, which is a point that these magazines are clearly making.  We should all be sporting red this month if we want to reflect the holiday spirit. 

My red lip colors shown from left to right :

Lipstick                                           Gloss                                       Matte Stain 
MAC "Lady Danger" |  L'Oreal Paris Infallible Lipgloss "Rebel Red" |  Tarte LipSurgence "Fiery"   

This is definitely one of those makeup trends I have already started putting into full force in my personal routine.  I am finding that the less time I have to do full on makeup, the more instantly put together I feel if I only have time for a BB Cream, mascara, blush and RED lips!! There is also a confidence factor that red lip color gives me too, I feel like I can move mountains.  Or,  more realistically, I can at least get through a whole grocery shopping errand with all 3 children in tow, not forget an item on my list, and no one cries.  All while looking fabulous you know...wink wink!!

What's your absolute favorite red lip color?  Leave in the comments below so I can see what reds I'm missing!

I have to admit, red lip color is very intimidating to me!

So I don't have a favorite but I'm going to check out some of the shades you recommended =)

So wear red lipstick! I just bought a red Mac lipstick for the upcoming holiday parties and now I'm a little nervous to wear it, I don't wear much lipstick.

MUFE #43 without a doubt!! The Moulin Rouge color is probably the best universal red i've found and really give MAC Ruby Woo or... (what's the other one?) something to compete with.
Also i haven't tried a red from OCC Lip Tar (i think i'm eyeing Strumpet too closely;) but i'm sure they would have a red or two (or 3 or 4) that would be heaven sent
