red, red, red

Ever since I purchased the perfect shade of pink lipstick, I've been on a new mission to stalk down a shade of red that screams "starlet," and not "streetwalker." Maybe it's all the Mad Men I've been watching lately, but I have a new appreciation for adding some extra punch to my pout. Lipstick always seemed a little too "old" for a college gal such as myself to sport, but I'm quite pleased with the effect a little extra oomph can have in the lip department, especially when you've got a paler complexion (I heart SPF!). With the holidays approaching, a little experimentation with crimson coloring might not be so bad, especially since I die over occasions that involve dressing and primping to the nines! Any suggestions on a shade of red that won't make me look straight out of Les Miserables? I hear M.A.C.'s Ruby Woo is top-notch...
