It's all about Taylor Swift, her new, non-country album 1989, and her red lips this week. Taylor Swift's red lips are her signature as much as her ability to write a pop song hook that embeds itself in your brain.
Sure, the singer, who is on track sell a million copies of 1989, has been seen with other colors on her lips. Yes, she looks amaze no matter what shade with which she paints her pout, but a red pucker really is her thing.
Swift has admitted that she doesn't have a drawer containing every red shade in existence and that she has been partial to NARS' Dragon Girl lately, saying, "I never really get too far from red lipstick, do I? I guess I just think my face looks worse without it. That's pretty much the only rationale behind it."
Well, though I think T. Swizzle's face aways looks good, here are 10 red lip products that allow you to copy her rich, crimson pout.
