Few things provoke more makeup fervour than a fiery-hued lip: it defines a whole look, demands attention and telegraphs major attitude (consider the loud mouths of Lauren Bacall, Lucille Ball, Liz Taylor). This fall, catering to the beauty addict’s insatiable appetite, entire wardrobes of red are hitting counters, including YSL Danger Red (eight shades), Kat Von D Studded Kiss (seven) and L’Oréal Paris Collection Exclusive Pure Reds (six, in stores November). And Nars, famous for vampy hues like Jungle Red—one of its very first products—is paying tribute to gutsy women with its 20th-anniversary Audacious Lipstick Collection, featuring colours like Rita (scarlet), Annabella (poppy) and Charlotte (oxblood).
