Seen all over the runways during Fall Fashion Week in New York? Stained lips. Gloss seems to be a thing of the past, which is sad for this gloss-loving beauty chick! But I can definitely get on board with the gorgeous red pouts seen at more shows than I can count! Puckers at 3.1 Philip Lim and Barbara Tfank were stained a deep cranberry, and the lips at Carolina Herrera were a subtler shade of crimson. Marc Jacobs, of course, upped the ante by making the lips at his Marc by Marc Jacobs show hot pink instead, while Michael Kors went with an almost nude stain. But whether you're into girly pink or the more vampy red, luckily, there are a bounty of options available to help you obtain the perfect stained lip.
