Turn Heads in Red

Whether gearing up for a date night, priming for a perfect first impression or primping for a girls’ night, red lips are hot at every price point.

Most days you can find me with my hair pulled into a knot, well-worn boots on my feet, a Diet Coke in my hand and an oversized sweater keeping me cozy. Clearly, we’ve hit the mid-point of winter and I need to mix it up a bit. As the snow melts, the social calendar is starting to fill so I’m thinking I need a dash of drama in the beauty department. The easiest way to get drama and variety? A great shade of lipstick.

I don’t dare attempt to count every shade of lipstick, stain and gloss within Mall of America, but instead found seven favorites to help me stand out in a crowd, grab the attention of my beau and celebrate an evening out with friends. Whether I convince myself to splurge or stock up on some wallet-friendly hues, I know I’ll be ready to paint the town red.
