Pink
A recent study by Manchester University reveals that men spent 6.7 seconds staring at women wearing pink lipstick. "Women who simply wear lipstick regardless of their lip typesecure significantly greater levels of attraction than those who do not, says Dr. Geoff Beattie, who headed the research.

Berry

Orange
A bright tangerine pout is perfect for days when you don't feel the loud red lippie. Ace this tricky shade by matching your lipstick with a neutral liner instead of a tangerine one.
