This year, ditch the red lips! Yes, red is a classic Valentine’s Day color, but why not try something else? Try a neutral color, you want your lips to look soft and kissable.

We suggest the shade Amour, not only does it mean love in French but the color won’t compete with your smokey eye look. Be sure to bring it on the go for any post-kissing lip touch ups!
