it’s been a bit since we talked about the red lip, and although it takes a certain dose of confidence to rock the look, there’s no better way to boost your mood. we soaked in a little red lip’spiration and searched far and wide for two bold, deep red shades to serve as the ultimate way to glam up your look this fall.

rouge d’armani comes at a higher price tag but literally lasts for hours (with impeccably saturated color), while kate moss’ creation is of surprisingly high quality for a drugstore find, with a creamy, moisturizing texture and smooth finish.

this: armani beauty rouge d’armani lipstick #400, $30

that: rimmel london lasting finish lipstick – kate moss collection 001, $4.64

which begs the question, what’s your favorite red lip of late?
