Nothing is sexier than red lipstick (in our opinion). It can anchor your makeup look and transform an ordinary outfit into a stunning ensemble. Just take a gander at Scarlett Johansson's crimson lips.
Lip color, no matter what shade you choose, can be any girl's instant pick-me-up. Yet, when applied incorrectly, it's a major downfall. Regular exfoliation and lip liner helps to prevent dry, cracked lips and lipstick feathering, but lip primer does wonders to ensure smooth application and long-lasting color.
In an effort to find the best lip primers (aka the ones that actually make your lipstick stay on your lips), the editors at HuffPost Style put the best brands to the test.
