Beauty Fab 5: Blood Red Lips

In the spirit of Halloween (and just in time for Sephora’s Spin To Win Friends & Family Sale, happening right now) dip into the dark side with deep rouge pouts, which were rampant on the Fall ‘12 runways. It’s a sultry, sophisticated look that’s spot on for the season’s moody ensembles. To get it just right, find a shade that complements your skin tone, and try keep the rest of your makeup minimal—think clean skin and lightly lined eyes with just a wand’s worth of mascara.

Here, we raided Sephora to cull out the best in blood red lipsticks so you can get that just-bitten look. (Click here to give their game a whirl and you may score them at a sweet discount, to boot!)

  
Gucci                                    Saint Laurent                        Nina Ricci

1. BEST OVERALL
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture in Blood Red, $32

Kiss pale lips goodbye in this rich shade, blended with just enough brightness to flatter most complexions. Plus, a cocktail of moisturizing hydrospheres ensure lips stay soft and supple.

2. BEST FOR PALE COMPLEXIONS
Nars lipstick in Fire Down Below, $24

Make your pout pop in deep rouge if you have lighter skin tone. This one by Nars has a velvety, semi-matte finish, which will make lips appear fuller, too.

3. BEST FOR DARKER SKIN TONES
Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick in Rosary, $19

Vamp it up in something smoldering with chocolate undertones, such as a rich, creamy burgundy.

4. BEST LIPGLOSS
Ellis Faas Glazed Lips in Blood Red, $35

Shine all evening with this dangerously intense lip glaze. We love how our smooch stayed glossy (even through two cocktails) without feeling sticky or having to reapply.

5. BEST SHEER FORMULA
Bite Beauty Sheer Balm in Carmine, $19

Get kissable lips with this sheer tinted balm, packed with antioxidants and natural moisturizers such as organic mint and blood orange oil to keep your mouth healthy.
