Read My Lips
Since the big apple is red and we all want a bite of it, red seems to be the appropriate color to wear when looking to make a statement in Manhattan or anywhere else. It doesn’t matter what you are wearing; you could even be naked and red lips will let the world know you are ready to take a bite off it.
Red is emotionally intense and evoking. Your lips are….well, they are in your face. So, when you wear the color of danger, power and sex up front—right on your lips—there is usually an empowering message behind it. Even if you don’t think about it, red is probably not your lip color of choice when getting ready for work at 8 AM, but when the clock hits happy hour, the fire comes out.
And when the fire is out and you wear red like you own it, men are mesmerized by its power. Back in 2010, a Manchester’s University study concluded that men like to stare at women’s lipsticked mouths, with red lips holding their attention longest. I guess rouge lips look edible.
