In the beauty world, the right red lipstick is equivalent to the perfect LBD. You have to have at least one in your collection.

I like to think of myself a self-proclaimed connoisseur of this particular shade of lipstick.
When I put on a swipe (or two) of any bold red hue, I instantly feel sexy and powerful. I invite you to do the same.

I have compiled a list of my current favorite red lipstick to try this fall. These colors have great pigment and strong staying power.

1. Fenty Beauty – Stunna Lip Paint, $24
