 'Red. Red. *Red*. *Red*, Charlie boy. *Red*! Is the color of sex! Red is the color of sex and fear and danger and signs that say, Do. Not. Enter. All my favorite things in life.' - Lola 
The quote from the truly entertaining movie Kinky Boots is one of my favorites as it correlates to the color of all colors: RED! From lipsticks, lip gloss to lip stains the color red just works on every complexion on this beautiful earth of ours. The hue works through the seasons, day or night and can make a gloomy day absolutely HAUTE !
